Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-S500 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Something is wrong with my saved pictures

I have a Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-S500 and a SanDisc Memory Stick Pro Duo 1.0Gig Memory card. I had over 350 pictures on the card this morning, and went over to my mother-in-law's house to show her our recent trip pictures and only 32 pictures showed up on my card... but one picture showed up as being over 1.88Gigs big and could not be opened??? I believe that maybe for some reason all my other pictures got shoved into one? Am I out of luck with regaining my vacation pictures or is there a way to get it done? Please let me know what options I have and if it's a problem with my card or camera. Thank you. - Al

    All 350+ pictures were showing up on the camera in the morning... just once I went to plug the camera into the PC then it dropped to 32 pics, one of which = (according to Windows) 1.88G.... I haven't had a problem with the camera and I've had it for 10 months now. So I will check the settings just in case.

Sometimes pictures come out dark but it is always good to go to your settings in your camera and adjust it like if it is outside you might need to adjust your vga setings

According to the users manual, the camera does not support above 512 MB cards, however I noticed that there is a firmware update which might address the issue. Go to and support, electronics. Put your model number in the selection box and you'll be taken to the drivers download page.

Unable to upload pictures from memory card to computer

Most laptops that have a memory card reader will only read these types of cards, without needing an adaptor: -SD card -MMC card -Sony Memory Stick or Memory Stick Pro cards -XD cards
However, you have a MS Pro Duo card, although it fits into the card reader slot, the card is a lot thinner than what's expected, so the laptop won't be able to read it.
You need to put the Pro Duo card into the stanard size MS Pro caard adaptor. See attached image.
Hope this helps.
