I cannot explain why, but i can suggest a different way to go about this so you don't have the problem anymore.

Try formatting the card instead of just deleting the files.

I know on a computer when you delete files from the hard drive, the files are still there, the computer only removes the index to the information, but the data remains there. This is the same thing that could be happening on your card.

Nothing beats a failure but a try, try formatting the card next time and see if that resolves the problem.

Thanks, and if this helps please rate my answer.

No, probably not. If you've taken more photos since then, then DEFINITELY not.

When they're deleted from the camera, they're deleted forever.

My Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-W150 no longer displays older photos on my camera. It now only displays ones taken since 1/1/2011. When I check on the computer they are all there. I would like to delete some older...

If the old photos are not displaying in the Camera, the most common reason will be the default folder structure might have changed.
I understand that you're able to view the old photos in the Camera by connecting it to the Computer.
In that case, you can delete the unwanted photos from the Camera after connecting the Camera to the Computer.
I hope it will resolve the issue. If you're still not getting enough space in the Memory on the Camera, you may transfer the new required images to a folder in the Computer and then format the Memory of the Camera.
Once you format the Camera, the memory on the Camera free up and you can copy the required new images back to the DCIM folder in the Camera.
Please let me know if you require any clarifications.

I have never heard of transfering like you want. Normally the internal memory wouldn't have room enough to hold those from the card, I think you will have to transfer to a computer, or go to one of the many photo processers and have them download all your pictures to cd or what ever. Once on a cd on in the computer, you can then delete pictures from internal memory and card and start all over again.

Can I retrieve deleted pics from the Sony memory stick PRO Duo

There sure is, and it's relatively easy. Here's some freeware photo recovery software that should be what you're looking for:

You will need to use a flash card reader with this software. If you don't have one, get one, they're cheap:

I have had this same problem. I just keep turning my camera on and off, unplugging and replugging. It usually gets it done. Sometimes, the batteries aren't strong enough to transfer if they're almost dead.
