Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W80 Digital Camera
Having just bought a new W80 digital camera i wanted a memory card to go with it. I decided to buy a 4GB memory card from someone on E-Bay, when i inserted the Memory Card in the camera and took a number of trial photos all appeared well..... It was only when i tried to view these photos on the camera that i realized everything was not ok..... Some of the photos were missing, some of them were blurred, others only showed half of the photo and the rest just showed a blue screen with the words ' FILE ERROR ' written across it... I found somewhere that describes why this happens, and they say it is because the memory cards are counterfeit... have a look at this site and see for yourself....

It isnt the memory stick.. it is something else. Occasionally it will show a bad picture.. half the screen shifted, etc.
Have you tried resetting your camera to original factory settings.if not please try it...

I had the same problem.
First, I changed my Memory-Stick, because after taking about 60 pictures the famous file error appeared.
Secondly, if the camera shows the famous "file error" this can be resolved - at least in my case - by taking out the battery for at least 4 hours.
So, if your camera is not in use, always take out the memory-stick and the battery and the problem does not appear. This helped in my case.
However, this is in my opinion anything but satisfying. I had a Nikon Coolpix nd never experienced any problems like the "file error" of the sony digicams.
