    If you can provide me the exact error message appearing on the Camera, I'll be able to assist you better.

    You may try Initializing the Camera.
    First, press the Menu button to display the Menu items.
    Then, select the SETUP option in the Menu items.
    Then, select the SETUP1 under the SETUP option.
    Then, select the Initialize under the SETUP1 to Initialize the Camera.

    Also try Power Resetting the Camera.
    First, please turn OFF the Camera.
    Then, remove the battery pack from the Camera.
    Then, press and hold the POWER button on the Camera for 30 seconds.
    Then, reinsert the battery pack and check whether the issue is resolved.

    The Format error occurs when there is an issue with the Memory Stick.

    Please try using another Memory Stick and check whether the issue persists. This is to check whether the issue is with the Camera

    If the issue still persists after using a different Memory Stick the service is required for the Camera.

I shot alot of pictures on my sony cyber-shot W55 and when i wanted to view them it says file error


It may be a problem with the memory card. Try the card in a card reader or another sony camera. If it works ok then, you've a camera problem.

If it fails also, it's a card problem, the files are corrupted somehow, the only thing in this case is to re-format the card in you camera, it will be one on the menu options.

The trouble is, when you format, it clears every thing off the card.

Another way is to buy a spare memory card, always handy, if that work ok straight away, again your first card has a problem and probably needs formatting.

My Sony DSC S40 Digital Camera is giving problem. I purchased the camera on Sept 2005. Lately i am getting format error. Whenever I click photos I am not able to get my half of the photos. When I try to...


When you disconnect from the computer, do you use the "safely remove hardware" icon at the bottom right of your screen or do you just yank out the cord? When you yank, most of the time you will corrupt the card and even the camera. You can try to download your pics from the card using a separate card reader or take it to a store like Walmart that has a Kodak picture kiosk and print your pics or even make a cd of them. Then, Check your owner's manual to learn how to reset the camera. After that, format the card in the camera.

My camera will turn on and the lens just goes in and out, i can't take a pic, i can view my pics though. The screen just says access.


Copy all your pics from the camera to a computer or your card, take the card out and use the camera's menu to format the camera or reset it, see if that helps.


Good luck

the memory stick pro duo should fit right into the sony cybershot....
if your struggling to load your photos onto your computer buy a universal memory card reader!
you should try and use a memory stick in a camera that needs an sd though!

I cannot view my photos that are on my memory stick it says format error


Sony right...format errors usually accure with them. If you didn't format your card through the camera prior to taking pictures then that is why it's not reading. You might want to check to see if the type of camera you bought requires a special program to read the files. Sony is famous for this.
