Re: Need to permanently delete thumbnails from camera...
Sounds like you may want to permanently format the memory card while in the camera. This will remove all data that has been written to the card. Have your camera in shooting mode, go to menu and then down to Card tab or setup option and then go to Card Setup or Format option. Highlight Yes and press Ok. This will permanently delete all data from the memory card and you will not see the older images and will only see the newest ones from now on.

ALTERNATE WAY TO TRANSFER PHOTOS TO COMPUTER If your photos are stored on the memory card, then remove the memory card from the camera and insert it into an USB memory card reader. Connect this USB memory card reader and memory card into the USB port of your working computer. Your computer will see this as an USB Mass Storage Device or an external storage device; you can then open the folder on the memory card and copy the photos to your computer. Memory card reader is a handy device and is inexpensive. You can copy photos from other cameras and you can also download photos off your memory card to someone else's computer without the need of installing any programs.After copying your photos to the computer, then you can delete the photos from the memory card using your computer.
From inside the software,navigate/choose your SDHC card letter( "D", "F", "G" ... ? ) and scan the section where it says "Deleted Rrecovery" . Scan the card and Set the destination folder(folder where recovered files will be saved) somewhere on your computer. BTW, you can get this recovery software from http://www.any-data-recovery.com/ It will show you the file name,type,date and size of your files and thumbnails for your pictures that it found on your card. WARNING:there will be lots of recovered files,do not set the destination folder as your DESKTOP,otherwise you'll end up having 100000 files on your desktop... = total mess :)
yes, you can recover deleted photos from Sony Cybershot digital camera with photo recovery software, recommended asoftech photo recovery which helped me before. you may refer to this step by step guide how to recover photos from digital camera the guide is easy to follow and works well for me. hope that it can help you too!
The only thing I can think of is that the new memory card is locked. On the side of the SD card is a write protect switch that when engaged will prevent you from writing to the card. On the side of the SD card is a little tab that can slide up or down. Change positions and try again.
This doesn't work for all cameras, but it does work for some cameras.
1) Make SURE you have all the photos in your computer.
2) Put the memory card into your camera and follow the camera's instructions to reformat the card.
3) Take 1 new photo on the memory card.
4) Put the memory card in the card reader on your computer. If you connect the camera directly to the computer instead of using a card reader, then do that now.
5) If your computer tries to automatically copy or move the photos to the computer cancel the process.
6) Use Windows Explorer (or Finder, if you use a Mac) and open 2 windows. In one window, navigate to the drive that represents your memory card. In the other window navigate to the location of your photos on your computer. This is usually in your My Pictures or Pictures drive under your user account.
7) On the memory card you will usually find the photo is in a subfolder, it may be several folders down. There may also be a thumbnail file. To copy files from your computer back onto the memory card so they can be seen in the camera you need to copy the files back onto the card using:
A) The same filename structure; B) Include a thumbnail file if the camera creates thumbnail files C) The file needs to be in the right folder structure (determined in step 7 above).
If your camera makes and uses thumbnail files but you don't have them on your computer, then you probably can't get the camera to recognize the files even if you copy them back onto the memory card in the right place.
This error or system hang-up is usually caused by:
1. the camera driver software attempting to read a corrupted photo; or
2. there are too many photo thumbnails stored in the PhotoMAX temporary storage area.
In either case, the problem can be corrected by manually deleting the Fun! Digital 320 camera thumbnails from the Polaroid Album (using the Windows Explorer or My Computer icons).
Follow these steps to delete the Fun! Digital 320 temporary files:
Step 1 -- Locate the temporary photo files
If you are familiar with Windows Explorer, simply browse directly to:
C:\Program Files\Polaroid\PhotoMAX SE\Digital 320
If you are new to browsing the file system, follow these steps:
1. Double-click on the My Computer icon on the desktop.
2. Double-click on the C: drive.
3. Double-click on the Program Files folder.
4. Double-click on the Polaroid folder.
5. Double-click on the PhotoMAX SE folder.
6. Double-click on the Digital 320 folder.
Step 2 -- Delete the temporary photo files
Inside the Digital 320 folder, you will see many files, most of which will be bitmap image files. All of the bitmap files that start with dsc_ (example: dsc_005.bmp) must be deleted.
To delete the files, you can either drag them into the Recycle Bin, or highlight each file by single-clicking on it and pressing the Delete key on the keyboard. To select multiple files at once, hold down the Shift key on the keyboard as you click on them, then press Delete.
IMPORTANT: Do not delete the following files from the Digital 320 folder:
* Polaroid Album.exe
