Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-S500 Digital Camera

2 Answers

File Error My Sony Cyber-Shot is showing "File Error" on my camera and I can't seem to upload the 4-5 pictures that are on my camera. The rest seem to all read "File Error" on a blue screen. When the pictures were first taken, we had no problem looking through them on the camera and then all of a sudden ths "File Error" showed up and when we went to upload the pictures, nothing loads. Is there anyway I can get those pictures?

Cant upload pictures to sell on e bay


Hi there.
This is a common problem with pictures not uploading to ebay, this is because the file size could be too large.
Copy the pics to the PC and open them using Microsoft Office picture manager, click on edit picture, and then resize, choose predefined width x height and select web -small then save the edited pic and try to upload to Ebay again.


Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Hey kimmc279,
According to the manufacturer the file error message should mean the camera experienced an error while trying to read the file. One thing you could try is formatting your memory stick in camera, and of course upload any images you have on it to your computer first. If that didn't work I would try initializing the camera back to factory settings, which can be done in the setup menu. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
