    I use Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-W70 with 1GB memory stick, and I have problem:
    i can take some (10 up to 12 picture) pictures with my cam with no problems, but if I took more pictures and movies, and then when i press
    the playback button, the screen displays a blue screen with the message:
    "File Error" with some files (for example from 13 up to last one)

    I copied all files to my computer. But, picture with "File Error" could not display in any graphic editing software including Photoshop, Windows Picture and Fax Viewer etc. The size of pictures are almost the same as good pictures (2,936 KB), but there is no information relating to Advanced Summary properties.

    Thans in advance

If the images are on the card and transfer OK to computer then we will have to look back to the camera.
You are sure that playback mode is selected correctly - are you?
Check out the hand book for this.
If you are sure - then it would seem to be a fault and the camera should be returned to the seller or the Sony support site contacted with a view to obtaining a replacement

"System Error" & camera turns off when I try to us the instant playback.

Remove the SD card, use a card reader to view files on your PC. Save any pictures that you want to keep - and then delete the file and also the DCIM parent folder. Once you have done this, try it back in the camera. Worked fine for us after this.
