You have to use a card reader either on your computer or an external USB card reader. Put the card in the card reader, open the recovery program, then select the drive where files are deleted, then press "Start" and wait for it to do it's magic.

I don't know what the question is here. Did someone forget to post it? All I've heard about prostate supplements is that a few consider Super Beta Prostate to be a scam while others would swear by it. I know that it is a clinically researched supplement that contains effective amounts of beta-sitosterol and a dozen other beneficial nutrients for the body.

In the shooting mode press cursor-right repeatedly to cycle through the various flash modes. To turn off the flash choose the lightning bolt in a circle with a slash through it. Full details are in the "Flash (Selecting a flash mode for still images)" section of the Cyber-shot handbook (page 26 in my copy). If you need the handbook and/or the manual you may download them from here.

Its quite easy just remove the Memory card from the Cyber shot

put it into the card reader and connect with your PC and simply copy and paste the images from card to PC.


You can also connect the Cyber shot directly to the PC using the USB data cable given with the Camera. When you do this a new drive will appear in My Computer now just copy the images from that new drive to anywhere in PC

Do what the pros do...use a card reader.

Hi there:
If the camera has recently been dropped it may have lens damage that is preventing it from powering up. There are a number of ways with which a lens error can be caused. Particulates might have managed to get into the mechanical bits that allow the lens to retract, a purely physical interference with the lens mechanism. If the camera was dropped, especially while the lens was extended, there's a pretty good chance something might have been knocked loose, such as the guide pins upon which the lens withdraws and retracts.


Additional details could find in this article link: fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program, such as Windows Photo Gallery.

Having gone over a month without a response to my query, I assume my suggestion to use a card reader solved the problem.

Hi well sorry to tell you but the controller board has failed, it's pretty common with these ones, it may happen after a knock or a bump? but not always, usually is a bad join on the flexible board(s), but in any event the only option is repair, there is NO DIY, to repair you will have to send it either back to the manufacturer or agent or take it to an authorised camera repair shop and ask for a "quote" and go from there.

This sounds like symptoms of a lens error. Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...Here are some troubleshooting steps that you can try that may (or may not) correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty (or repair cost approaches that of the camera), they're worth that try. Some of the later steps do involve some risk to the camera, so carefully weigh your options before deciding to conduct them.
