It may well be that settings in windows were not correct for your removable device.

This a pretty common problem and the fix is quite simple too.

connect the drive back up to your PC
in either windows explorer or my computer right click on the drive.
now properties and then hardware select your drive and then select Policies. Make sure that the "optimise for quick removal" is ticked

The performance option puts the files together in big pieces before moving them to the drive and if you remove the drive before it has had Chance to do that the the files never make it.

If you have to use the performance option then ALWAYS use the option to "safely remove hardware" which will hurry up an move the files because it knows you want the drive.

How do i download family photos from digital frame to my laptop ready to print


Hello, moving the pictures from the photo frame to your laptop shouldn't be too difficult. First, we'll need to know what kind of laptop you have (make/model) and what kind of photo-frame you have. These two pieces of information will help us determine how your photo frame stores the pictures, and the best way to get them to your laptop.

Sony Cybershot - the memory stick is full


More than likely the camera still thinks the photos are on the stick, especially if you deleted the images while it was hooked to the computer. I would safely move the rest of the photos off the stick onto your computer then format the card through the camera and with the camera disconnected from the computer. this should clear the card.
