    Yes - everytime he took a picture he got a 10 second video. He had the setting wrong.

    If I'm reading it right, your father recorded his trip. And you want to turn the video into photos?

If he took videos on the digital camera, that will depend what camera, and how old it is.
Some of the older ones may not give very good out take photos. or stills from video shots.
So, First I would like to know what the camera is, and can you determine what the file type is.

There are many programs which can get the video pictures you pick to .jpeg files.
Just remember that there are hundreds of pictures in each video, and possibly thousands, if it is very long.
You will have to decide some things here.

You can use a wonderful program... (my son said it is great), Go to videolan.org download and install VLC the program which you can use for free and is open source. Copy the videos to your hard drive. Install and open the program VLC. Go to the menu which has snapshot. That will save the picture you have captured. Remember to read the instructions. My son said you may need a good video capture card and also a cable to get the picture...what ever the program wants, use it that way. I will down load and use this program soon...but my son has used it for his work in LA.

You could also just enjoy the videos. Put them all on DVD and play on a DVD player!

  • tap " Prtint Screen Key " on your keyboard
  • open MSPAINT and click edit and paste it

How to recover deleted photos and videos in sony cyber shot dsc w170 even if i took further videos and photos after deletion


Since your further photos and videos almost certainly overwrote the original photos and videos, you don't have a very good chance of recovering them. Do a Google search for "data recovery software" and select a program for your computer and operating system. Put the memory card into a card reader attached to your computer, cross your fingers, and run the program.

My Dad took pictures at my Graduation a couple of weeks ago but the batteries were low so he kept losing power. According to my Dad, everytime he took a picture he saw it on the display screen yet day


STOP
do not write anything to your camera's removable memory card,otherwise you willt re-write the files and permanently lose your videos and pictures.
Install this recovery software called Tenorshare Photo Recovery.
From inside the software,navigate/choose your memory card letter( "D", "F", "G" ... ? ) and scan the section where it says "Raw Recovery", "Videos" or "Photos" . Scan the memory card and Set the destination folder(folder where recovered files will be saved) somewhere on your computer.
BTW, you can get this recovery software from
Tenorshare Photo Recovery for Windows
Tenorshare Photo Recovery for Mac
It will show you thumbnails for your pictures that it found on your memory card.
WARNING:there will be lots of recovered files,do not set the destination folder as your DESKTOP,otherwise you'll end up having 100000 files on your desktop... = total mess :)

On my card, there are some files that indicate a "File Error." What does this mean and how do I fix it?


It usually occurs with slower cards. Also with cards that have never been formatted in the camera. Sometimes the write process on the picture/video that you just took hasn't yet completed, while you switch modes on the camera, going to say video mode, or from video to photo mode. That last video or photo that was being written didn't get a chance to finish writing to the card, so part of it may be lost. You can attempt to recover some of them using recovery software (here's some to try). But overall the fix is to use a faster card (look for Class 6 "C6" or higher), and always remember to format your card at least once in your camera using your camera's format feature (keeping in mind that a format will also erase your card, so make sure that you've backed up your photos to your computer first!)..

How do i download photos from the actual memory on my blackberry (not fron the memory card itself). When I first took photos using the blackberry, the memory card was not quite in place and so the photos...


You need to plug the blackberry into the computer and make sure 'mass storage mode' is on(options, settings, memory, mass storage) it will treat your BB as an external hard drive and allow you to get photos, video, music, etc off device memory

Does not chnage back from from Photo mode to Video Mode


If you have been using this camera for a long time, most likely the function switch ( the one you turn to change from photo to video mode) contacts are worn out. you have to take this one to a repair shop to change the function switch.
