The same thing happened with me. I suggest you buy a new battery. That is what I am going to do.
Keep mem up dated though.

I hope you didn't format the card because that erases the pics forever. You could get a separate card reader and try to download them that way. You could take the card to a store like Walmart and plug the card into one of their picture making machines. When your pics show up, you can print them or even make a cd of them.

Photos vanished - but may still be on stick???

Two things you can try. 1. Get a separate card reader and use it to transfer your pics to a folder you create on your desktop. 2. Take the card to a Walmart store that has a Kodak Picture Kiosk machine. There, you can print the pics or even make a cd of them.

How do I hook up my sony DSC-W55 to my computer to upload pics?

The best way to upload pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive.

There are also plenty of photo catalog software packages out there, some free, some not, that can transfer and catalog your pictures so you can quickly find pictures from Susie's birthday party, for example. Just do a google search for "photo catalog software".

Hi i have a casio exilim and i am using a 2gb memory card in it, i went out last night and took lots of pictures after each pic was taken i viewed it to make sure it was ok or if i needed to take another...

You problem set your camera to use internal memory only. Set the memory function to memory card only and all pictures will go to the memory card until it is full. You can probably still transfer your pic files from internal memory to your card.

Deleted Pictures

Your formatted pics are still there until you take more pics and overwrite them. Just remember not to take any more pics on that card just yet (sorry I didn't see this post sooner).
It's no problem at all to get them back. As an example, try the below linked freeware program. It's tiny to download (a little over 1meg), and very easy to use. You'll have your pics back in ten minutes after reading this:
