    memory card or memory stick/ which ever is applicable

  • dewan nafees ahmed Sep 29, 2008

    First transfer the images to computer. After that remove the card
    from the computer and confirm that the image files have transferred
    successfully, then put the card back in the camera and use the "Format"
    option in the menu to delete all files and start fresh

    You may have to search through the menu
    or manual to find the "Format" option, but I guarantee it's there.
    Doing it this way also ensures that whenever you go to take pictures,
    your memory card will be clear and ready to shoot.

I have a sony cybershot DSC W170 and I have just changed my computer. I am sure it came with software for downloading my pictures but I don't seem to have a disc for this. Is this something I need to...


Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

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 Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

Displays file error message when trying to playback still images and video footage


Did you take the card and insert into computer/device to view photos?

Viewing photos can alter the format of the photos thereby preventing your camera from reading them.

I viewed some photos and rotated a few photos and my camera no longer recognizes the format.

good luck
