Question about Sony A Alpha - Camera Digital Slt-a65v Slr - A65 - Sony

1 Answer

Sony a65 camera - Why are the folders set up on the storage media as "read-only"? Any way to change this?

The camera sets up folders on the storage media with a "Read Only" attribute. This creates two problems. First, folders copied to my Windows 7 PC come across as read only. This the photos can't be edited. Fortunately you can access the folder on your PC and remove the read only in the folder properties (what a hassle). Secondly, the folders on the camera can't be deleted from the PC. You can delete folders by using features on the camera (what a hassle). Any way to turn of "read only" on the camera folders?

To avoid accidental deletion of the images, or unanticipated corruption of the folders. If it is really 'such a hassle' to change the properties on a few folders, maybe you should get a different camera, or a different hobby.

SOURCE: Delete the file in MSC folder

Hi

The folder is created automatically on the memory card, you should be able to browse to it by connecting the camera to your computer and opening up the camera storage through "My Computer" on your desktop.

SOURCE: File Folders

You cant delete the folders as the camera makes them to store photos , when you just connect the memory stick without the camera into a card reader you can delete the photos .However the 2 folders are there because 1 is used to store the internal memory pictures and the memory stick or you might have created another folder by changing the path of storage

SOURCE: sony dsc-w50. iam not finding the folder to delete

The images will be in the DCIM Folder.

Go to the "My Computer" or "Computer" window, click on the Drive which represent the Camera and locate the DCIM folder and delete the images.

However, it is recommend to delete the images using the Camera (not from the Computer).

You may try formatting the Memory Stick. Formatting the Memory Stick will delete all the Data from the Memory Stick (Camera).

To format the Memory Stick:

Press the Menu button on the Camera -> SETUP -> MEMORY STICK TOOL -> Format -> OK.


Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!

Camcorder keeps reading internal memory full and just put new memory stick in camcorder how do I get out of internal memory


Your Sony camcorder has internal hard-disk and records by default to this media. If this is full, you need to offload the recordings and free up some space on the disk. But to select the memory card you can do the following:

Selecting the recording media for movies:
Touch (MENU) [Show others] [MEDIA SETTINGS] (under
[MANAGE MEDIA] category) [MOVIE MEDIA SET].
The [MOVIE MEDIA SET] screen appears.

Touch the desired recording media.

Touch [YES] .OK
The recording medium is now changed.

For still images:
Selecting the recording media for photos
Touch (MENU) [Show others] [MEDIA SETTINGS] (under
[MANAGE MEDIA] category) [PHOTO MEDIA SET].
The [PHOTO MEDIA SET] screen appears.

Touch the desired recording media.

Touch [YES] .OK
The recording medium is changed.
Hope this helps, if more help needed, reply back.

I am not able to download photos to my computer despite the fact that i connected with download cable


depending on the model of your camera/phone???? there are sometimes settings that you have to change in order to access your media. If it is a phone, you need to change your memory over to usb/mass storage setting. If it is a camera make sure you have it recognized by your pc. Look in your devices and printers folder to see if it is there. If so, you can use the icon there to connect and download. Another thing you can try is to use your windows media player and sync it to your device. It will then download your pictures to the media player and you can copy them to whichever folder you would prefer from there.

Its telling me the hard disc is corrupt and is reloading it but it doesn't fix it and takes ages but is the same


Your hard drive has a problem and needs to be formatted. this has happened to me twice already but not with the original hard drive that came with the ps3, I changed mine to a 500 gig drive which had the problems.

the bad news is that you have lost everything that you saved onto the drive and need to reformat and reinstall the ps3 operating system.

If you go through the system settings there is an option to format the drive. Do that.
Then you need to get a USB flash drive, and follow the steps below

Download the update and save the file to a compatible storage device such as Memory Stick, Memory Stick Duo, a USB or PSP.

Before starting, use your PC to create a folder named "PS3" in the storage media or USB. In this folder, create a folder named "UPDATE" (the folder name is case sensitive and must appear in capital letters). Once the UPDATE folder is created, download and store the update for PS3 system software.

Once the update saved, remove the storage media and connect to your PS3 via the slots under the slot cover, or USB, depending on the storage medium used.

Once the storage media connected, go to Settings on the home menu of the PS3, select System Update, then update via Storage Media. Select the storage media connected to the PS3 installs the update data stored there.

Good luck.

Need a free download for my sony cyber shot dsc-w55 to download pictures on my computer


You do not need any Driver or Software to transfer the images from the Camera to the Computer.

1. Set the USB Connection or Transfer mode setting in the Camera menu to Mass Storage or Normal .

2. Connect the Camera to the Computer using the supplied USB cable or any USB cable.

3. The Computer will recognize the Camera (make sure that the recording media containing the pictures (Memory Stick) is inserted in the Camera).

4. Click the Start button and then click the "My Computer" icon (for XP Operating System and for Vista or Windows 7 it will be "Computer" icon).

5. In the "My Computer" or "Computer" window, click the icon that represents the Camera.

6. Click the "DCIM" folder and drag it to the desktop screen of the Computer to transfer the images from the Camera to the Computer.

However, you may download the supplied Picture Motion Browser software for the Camera from this Link.

My sony cybershot DSC-W35 digital camera says Format error


Hello,

In regards to your settings on your camera, I would suggest trying Auto first and then Mass Storage second. Auto in theory should detect the proper settings needed and adjust automatically. Mass Storage setting would treat the camera with your card like a flash (thumb drive) and would work also, however the software included with your camera will most likely work best with the auto setting. One quick question before we get too deep into this, is the card in your camera a brand new one or does it have pictures on it?
