Is there anyway I can retrieve pictures that were accidently erased?

It may be possible to recover deleted pictures from your Sony Memory Stick by using the Memory Card File Rescueapplication. This software is available as a free download online in the Software & Drivers section.

If the Memory Stick File Rescue application is unable to recover the image files, then the Memory Stick media may need to be sent to a professional data recovery service company, like Sony Media Services or DriveSavers Data Recovery. For more information and pricing, visit the Sony Media Services Web site at http://www.sonymediaservices.com/, or the DriveSavers Data Recovery Web site at http://www.drivesavers.com.
