It's very difficult to follow exactly what you did. The easiest solution may be to use a card reader to download your pictures to a folder you create on your desktop. Next time, don't overload your card.

Downloading photos from Sony DSC-P100 to computer running Windows 7


Please check below for information about the compatibility of your Sony DSCP100 camera.

Windows 7
* Drivers:
The drivers needed to connect your Sony camera to a computer and transfer files are already included in the operating system.

Not Supported: The Windows 7 Starter edition is not supported.

Check here how to transfer video clips to a computer running a Windows operating system:
1. Turn on the computer.
2. While the camera power is off, connect it to the computer using the supplied USB cable.
3. Make sure the camera is using a fully charged battery pack or connected to an optional AC power adapter and that it is plugged into a working electrical outlet.

NOTE: Avoid using a battery pack with little remaining charge because transferring may fail or image data might be corrupted if the battery pack shuts down too soon.

4. Make sure media with the recorded video is inserted in the camera.
5. Turn on the camera.

NOTES:
On the LCD screen, a USB indicator will display during and after the communication session.
If this is the first time the camera has been connected to the computer, the computer should automatically install the appropriate USB driver at this time.

6. Transfer the pictures or videos to the computer using one of the following methods:
6.1 Use the Import pictures and videos option.
In the AutoPlay window, click Import Pictures and videos using Windows .
In the Import Pictures and Videos window, click Import Settings .
In the Import Settings window, click the Browse button.
Click to select the location on the computer where you want to copy the movie files (for example My Videos ).
Click the OK button.
In the Import Pictures and Videos dialog box, click the OK button.
Click the Import button.

6.2 Use Picture Motion Browser (PMB) software
Using PMB version 4.3 or older
Using PMB version 5.0 or later

Copy and paste the video files from the Removable Disk window that represents the camera.
a. Open the My Computer or Computer window on the computer.
b. In the My Computer or Computer window, double-click the icon that represents the camera.
c. Click to select the appropriate camera folder that contains the video or picture files you want to transfer.
c.1 The DCIM folder (if available) contains still picture .JPG, or .ARW files and .AVI video files.
c.2 The MP_ROOT folder (if available) contains standard and high-definition .MP4 video files.
c.3 The AVCHD folder (if available) contains high-definition .MTS video files.

NOTE: Depending on your camera and the type of footage recorded, not all the files or folders above may be displayed.
On the computer keyboard, press CTRL+C to copy the camera folder and its contents.
Browse to the location on the computer where you want to copy the picture or video files, such as the My Pictures or My Videos folder.
Press CTRL+V to paste the camera folder and its contents into the computer folder you selected in the above step.

NOTES:
* Movie player software must support the MPEG-4 format to playback standard or high definition .MP4 recordings.
* Movie player software must support the MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 format to playback high-definition .MTS recordings.
* Refer to the developer of your movie player software for information about file format compatibility.
* For the video to be viewable in the PMB software, the folder where the videos or pictures were saved must first be registered in the software. Information about how to register folders is available in the PMB Guide in the Help section of the software.

Importing


Here are the steps to transfer your digital files from the Optimus DV-3040 Camcorder to your computer:

  1. Connect the small end of the USB cable to the USB connector on the digital video camera.
  2. Connect the larger end of the USB cable to an available USB port on your computer.
  3. Turn on the camera and the computer. The [USB MODE] screen appears on the camera’s LCD monitor.
  4. Select [MASS STORAGE] with the zoom lever, and press the O button.
  5. From the Windows desktop, double click on "My Computer".
  6. Look for a new "Removable disk" icon. This "Removable disk" is actually the memory or memory card in your digital video camera.
  7. Double click on the removable disk and locate the DCIM, MP3 and AUDIO folders. Select the files that you want, and then choose “Copy” from the “Edit” menu. Open the destination location (folder) and choose “Paste” from the “Edit” menu. You may also drag and drop image files from the digital video camera to a desired location.

Can't get pics to my mac computer, won't transfer.


When you get the popup from iPhoto don't click on any iPhoto buttons. Instead, click on command+tab and change to your Finder application (leaving iPhoto open in the background).

1) Create a new folder on your Desktop or in your Pictures folder. This is where you will copy your photo files.

2) Click on File, then New Finder window. Size these finder windows so you can see both of them at the same time. In the second window, go to your computer, and then to the drive that represents the memory card in your camera.

3) Drag and drop to copy the files from the camera's memory card Finder window to the new folder Finder window, dropping the files into the new folder on your computer's hard drive.

4) Use command+tab to change back to iPhoto. Cancel from the import warning window. In iPhoto click on File then Import to Library

5) In the import dialog tell iPhoto to move the photos (not to import them in their current location) so that iPhoto puts the photos in the same place it put your other photos when it imported them directly from the camera.

If you can't do all of these steps, tell me how far you got, and what happened.

Vivicam 8325 - lost disc....


Haven’t been able to find any software, but you can try the following workaround:
1. Plug in the camera to the PC and ensure it is detected by the PC.
2. Right click START button and select Explore.
3. From the left panel, scroll to the drive corresponding to your camera. (It will usually be located after the last DVD/CD ROM Drive letter.
4. Click on that drive to expand the folders in the right pane.
5. Search for the relevant pictures from a folder within that drive.
6. Copy the required pics (Hold CTRL and click on pics in case you want to select more than one pic). Then rightt click and select "COPY"
7. Once you copied all the needed pics, select a folder on your computer (or create a new one) and paste the pics into this folder.
8. You're done :)

An external memory card reader is an easy alternative way to copy files from your camera's memory card to your computer.

Hope that helps! Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.
