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.

Unable to delete a picture that is causing read error. unable to upload any picturers taken after that picture


If your camera has a format option use that. You will lose ALL pictures that are on the card. Also if your computer has a card reader, use it. It is much more forgiving than the camera software..

Both these disks say error when put in printer to download and say locked when put in the camera, have moved the lock on the side with no luck.


Have you ever formatted your cards in your camera? If not, that likely is your problem. They may work fine at first, but with time corrupt. Try formatting these cards in your camera, but note that this will also totally erase these cards. To format, put the cards in the camera, go to the "tools" menu, and select the item stating your cards memory capacity. Then follow the prompts to format, making sure that "low level format" is checked.

IF there are pictures on the cards that you don't want to lose prior to formatting, please see the following for some excellent freeware recovery software that you can use with your printer's card reader. AFTER you download your pictures with this software, then consider formatting:

It says picture error for every picture and cannot delete photos individually. One minute it said card full then every photo said picture error and switched itself off. Its not a happy camera


Sounds like you will need to format the memory card. This will permanently erase all the data from the card and then you will be able to use it again. To format the card: Press the Menu button - right arrow to setup - right arrow to format option. You will see format yes or no. Choose Yes and press ok. This will clear the picture error messages and the card can be used again.

Memory Card Requires Formatting


Hey B418,
Formatting will delete all your pictures on your camera or memory card. The camera might be prompting you to format because the the camera's memory is full. To avoid losing your pictures I would connect your camera to a computer, download your images to your computer first, and then format the memory.

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.

My memory card is full but my camera reads "no images."


Don't fret, your images are probably still there. But take no more pics until you've recovered the photos, take the card out of the camera. Here's some freeware photo recovery software that should be what you're looking for:

http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/recovering-those-accidentally-lost.html

You will need to use a flash card reader with this software. If you don't have one, get one, they're cheap:

http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=sr_st?keywords=card+reader&rs=172282&page=1&rh=n%3A172282%2Ck%3Acard+reader&sort=price

And finally, after (and only after) you recover your images, format your card. This should refreshen your card to be usable again. Format it in the camera, using a "Full" or "Low Level" format, and NOT a "Quick" format. Keep in mind that the photos will no longer be recoverable after doing the Full or Low Level format.

Can't playback pictures


Try formatting the memory card in your camera. Search the camera's menus to find the option that lets you do a "Full" or "Low Level" format, and NOT a "quick" format.

Format Error


First option would be to attempt to read the disk in another DVD player, for example on a PC. If that succeeds then transferring the data can be done via the PC. Another thing to try is to reset your Camcorder - refer to the manual to locate the switch and then try again. If neither works then re-formatting is probably the only answer. Always format the disks in the camcorder - not elsewhere.Good luck.
