I didn't delete any of my pictures then when i opened my camera again... some of them said file error..

Sometimes the camera just has a problem. Put the memory card into your computer without taking more pictures or messing with it on your camera. The computer usually will read the file error pictures just fine.

Hello! my name is Dima, sorry for my English, could u help me?! I lost pics from sony cybershot w210 how can i recover files? thank u


I'm sorry to hear that the images captured in the Camera is deleted. To recover the images in the Camera, you may have to use any recovery Software or need to contact a Media Recovery firm. I suggest you to first try the Memory Card File Rescue Software. If the Software is not recovering the images deleted, the you have to send the Memory Card to the Media Recovery firm. You may try contacting media recovery firms like Sony Media Services.

Thanks for using FixYa

Deleting photos

My suggestion is to get a card reader which will read your memory card. Then copy all photos to your computer. Next delete what you want from the list on the computer.
There are a lot of other free viewers which will read and view the .jpg files or other kinds of photo files.

You can also try this:
Go to the Sony website and find your camera, usually under support and downloads or some thing like that. Download the newest version of the software you need. It should all be there for the taking.
There may also be upgrades for what you already have on your computer.
