I turn the camera on and it says file error - i can review a couple pictures and then this file error shows again


download whatever pictures you need.
if you dont need any pictures then reformat the card by going to the
Setting Memory Kit
and choose format on the card.
this will erase all pictures on the sd card.

Im getting a Err 002 which means something is wrong with my CF. I have had it for 5 years and no problems until now. I tried to reformat but my camera will not let me into the menu option with the CF in...


I agree the problem is the CF card. I'd like to add that it must have several back to back corrupt files to be refusing formatting. As much as I teach/lecture not to do this I also agree that to save that card place it in a memory card reader and format the card in the computer. Check before hand to see if there are usable pictures and load them to a new file folder before formatting. Once formatting has been completed in the computer check that all pins are in correct and serviceable condition in the card reader slot in the camera before install it back into the camera. Then reformat the CF card in the camera. Each time pictures are downloaded to the computer a CF card should be formatted.
Deleting pictures just causes a huge amount of problems if done repeatedly in favor of formatting.
I'm including some diagrams to show where the formatting mode is located on your camera.
Best of luck

My sony dsc-w100 digital camera says format error and hangs on. what shall i do??


Take out memory card from camera, turn it On and check does it show format error?
If yes, press Home, Memory option and format internal memory.
If camera does not show format error then put back memory card in and press Home, Memory card option and format it.
This will delete all files/ data and will refresh memory card, take some pictures and check.
If after formatting, still format error exist, put new memory card.

It keeps saying that my memory card is not formatted. When I press ok, it deletes all of my pictures.


That is what formatting does. It reorganises the memory in to an ordered and useable format and in doing so all files will be lost.

Fuji, Canon, HP and other digital cameras do not like being used with memory expansions if they are not reformatted every time the pictures have filled the memory card or you choose to download them. Its like the memory is still allocated to something even though you cant see it. So a good practice is to reformat after every download. If the problem persists then try another card and if this still gives an error then you will have to get the camera serviced.

I pressed format and then yes and then all my pictures disappeared did they get deleted or what did the format do???


Yes, Format erases all pictures.

If it is a micro SD card or other flash type memory then it would not normally be possible to get the pictures back after that,

File error


I have two S760 also having the 'file error' on just some shots Like graham-s-sk new sandisk 2gb and when downloaded the file is there but the attributes are currupted. Talked to Samsung who said the sd card should be formatted on the camera and not to rely on the Sandisk formatting. Have tried this and taken 100 test shots - so far so good!

Memory Card Error


Do not ever format a card.,any card via a computer That does it in. For camera use it will not be recognised. Put the card in the card reader and if there is anything at all on it delete it. Try to reformat in the camera again- failing that -new card.
