Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H2 Digital Camera

1 Answer

File error After shooting a number of pictures on two different memory cards, the display begins to show "file error" and the images after that time can not be recovered. If the card is moved to another camera it still show "file error". A new card will work until the same problem crops up. After that point the card seems to be permanently damaged.

Why am I getting an Image Database File error on my Sony camera?

Would have been easier for me, when you had given the model number, but I give it a try. Most of the time you get these messages, when the file number is exceeding 999 or 9999. Or when the card or disk is full. Please try to recover all existing files from the memory (card and disk) and then try to format all memory devices.

Have a Finepix S602Zoom which on warning display now shows ''Card not initialised''- have bought a new 4GB card- but still have the same problem.. Any ideas - software prob?

This is a common error in the FinePix product range. When you receive a "Card Error" or "Card Not Initialized" message, this indicates that your camera's memory may be temporarily corrupted. This can be due to not formatting your memory card on a consistent basis. Most users will use the "delete all" feature and continue to take pictures but by doing this the file format of the card may become unstable and unusable.

Fuji recommends formatting your memory card in your camera after saving the images from your previous shooting session. Once a memory card is formatted the images will not be recoverable. So format the current cards and they should be useable again.

My nikon d60 is starting to take forever to show the picture after taking the photo, and now all the sudden is shows a black box with shooting details on it, i can't get that off!

In your manual you will find how to change the display format (picture only, histogram, etc.). The time it's taking to display your image "might" be that your memory card is getting quite full and you're shooting large images. I shoot a D80 and it uses an SD card. Make sure you but a fast memory card if your camera does not buffer the inage before writing it to your memory card.

Pictures not accessible on memory card

Nope. Ur memory card might have been formated by the camera with a different file system.
So use your camera to access your pics and to transfer to PC.

Samsung s1050 says file error

Are you able to transfer the images to the computer? It looks like a memory stick problem.. If your camera has internal memory then pull out the memory stick and save images to internal memory.. If the pictures are alright then you have to replace the memory card.. Do not buy them on ebay. 60% of the times you get fake stuff over there..

File error when viewing the still photographs and movie videos

Try putting in a different memory card that you may have lying around and see if you can still take pictures and videos. If that works then you may need to go into setup via camera and format the memory card. If another memory card doesnt work it may be the camera. Let me know if this method doesn't work and I could be more than happy to give you another solution.

File Error

Hi, It might be time for a new memory card. A last effort you can try is to remove the memory card and insert it into a memory card reader connected to a PC. There are diagnostics and utilities that can be performed on your memory card since it will be treated by your PC as a removable storage. You can format the memory card, run diagnostics like Norton Disc Doctor or similar. If in any test an error shows, then you have just confirmed that is due for replacement. If after formating, scanning and checking it shows good, then you can try using it again. You can also try cleaning the little gold tips at the end of one side of the memory. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turned up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.

File error

I have seen this problem with generic SD memory cards so it could be a faulty memory stick.  Try to get a replacement.  If you want to try to recover the pictures you have taken, I suggest Zero Assumption Recovery (Google for it). Check to see if it is compatible with your camera before downloading.
