When I switch on the Cybershot Camera, I get message "Error when formating" and tried to format via menu but i do not want to loose my pictures, so I canceled this option. What can I do to fix...

Hi peter_phasha ,

If you need to format your cybershot camera without losing your pictures , please follow the below steps :-

  • Make sure that you copy all the pictures from your camera to your hard disk , so that in case of an accidental format your data is saved.
  • To copy images from your camera to your computer or hard disk all you need to do is connect the camera using the cable which is supplied along with it , to your computer , and then install the software that came along with it, usually in a CD.
  • When you install the software you would find a storage drive is being reflected in my computer in case you are using windows xp , this will have all the pictures that you have taken from your camera.
  • Select the folders of the pictures of the specific pictures you want to copy and then select copy option from the edit menu , or press CTRL + C when the images or folder has been selected.
  • Now you need to paste these images on your hard disk , so you can do this by just creating a new folder on your desktop and then opening it , and pressing CTRL + V option so that the files get copied to your desktop , which is stored in your hard disk.
Note :- It's always better to copy your important images/fies to a seperate partition , instead of copying them to your root drive in which the operating system has been installed.
This could save your data from being deleted accidentally in case you format your root drive for reinstallting the operating system or the partition is lost , or corrupted.

Yes, formatting will erase your pictures. If I'm not mistaen, this camera uses a standard USB Mini port, you can purchase one at any computer or electronics store.

The camera erased all my pictures and it will not format the disk

Have you tried to put the card in a card reader and connect it to your computer? Card readers can be purchased at just about any store that sells electronics or camera supplies. They cost around $20 or less. You put the card in the card reader, attach it to your computer and click on start and then my computer.You should be able to see something that says digital media or mass storage. Highlight that and that right click. It should give you the option of formatting the card. It will erase everything and format it for you. Then you can try it in the camera. If this doesn't work then it should be looked at. Good luck

Only jpeg on raw+jpeg

This is strange. Is the camera putting the Raw (CR2) files in a different directory somewhere?

Try reading the disk in a reader rather than plugging the camera into the computer, and explore the disk.

If it's really not recording RAWs then I'd call Canon... They're usually very good indeed with photography.

How can i format my hp desktop??

Well there are a couple different solutions. If you have another hard drive replace it with your other one and make the one that you want to format the secondary hard drive. Then after you boot the computer, all you gotta do is go to my computer and which ever drive the hard drive is set up on you can right click on the right drive. Go to where it says format and click on it and then follow the instructions.

You can also format the hard drive if you got a windows disk. Just put the disk in your cd-rom and restart the computer and then go through the setup process. You will get to a point where it will ask you if you wanna keep the files the same or do you wanna format the hard drive. There are two options for fomatting: There is a quick format or a full format. If you wanna totally wipe everything off the hard drive make sure you do the full format. It only takes a little while longer than the quick format process, so you are just better wiping it totally clean and then reboot windows on the hard drive when it is done formatting......

Fuli A340 memory card problem

Try opening your My Computer screen, connect the camera to the computer and watch for the new removable disk to show up. Depending on the camera there may be two that show up. Right click on the removable disk/disks and choose format, click start and click okay. This should fully reformat the memory and you'll be able to take pictures again.
