Yes, you are possibly to recover the lost photos with so-called photo recovery software. Well, since you failed to mention the OS you are running, I'll recommend you have a try of Wondershare Photo Recovery, a program equipped with both Windows and Mac versions. For Windows OS, download from here. If you are running Mac OS X, get the program from this link.

Step-to-Step Instruction:

1. Download and install the trial version on your computer, then connect your camera memory card to the computer (I assume you are using Windows). Start Wondershare Photo Recovery and select the drive letter that assigned to camera memory card.
2. Then choose the file type (all, photo, video, music) click "Star Scan".
3. Now the scanning process will start automatically to look for the deleted items. You will then get a list of all recoverable ones.
4. Preview the photos. If your deleted ones are found, then you need pay to get the activation code. And click "Recover".

Tips:
1. Take the free trial version before you buy.
2. Before your deleted items are recovered, do not take more photos or videos.

I hope you good luck,

The photos would be removed from the memory stick because of one of the following actions:

* Delete the photo with the camera controls
* Delete the photo file when the downloading the memory stick to a computer
* Format the memory card
* The photos never got stored on the memory card.

Are you sure that no one did any of the first 3 actions above?

Did you ever see the photos in playback mode?
Maybe you just saw the post shooting image, but the image never got stored in the memory stick?
Could it be that you didn't insert the memory card all the way in or in the wrong direction, so nothing get stored on it?

Is there any way to retrieve pictures from memory card that says card error in camera


You can try another camera which uses the same card type.

Does yours or a friends pc/laptop have a card reader built in ?

You could try a photo processing shop, see if their card reader can see your pictures.

You can buy multi-card readers which connect to a pc via a usb port.


If you've tried 2 or more of the above, and they all say the same. Your card has had it and you've probably lost the pictures.

Take the camera to a camera shop. They will sell you the correct cable. Alternatively, get a USB memory card reader and take the memory card out of the camera.

I have tryied to take the batteries or/and the memory card out but it doesn't help. By taking out the memory card I never lost the pictures...

Sony dsc-w80 lost pictures!


hi there

dont fret, you still might have another chance to retreive those pictures, look for a card reader/writer and insert your cameras card to it. be sure that they are compatible in size.

plug it into your computer and hopefully you will see the pictures.

but if this is still unsucessful, sad to say that your card got corrupted. and the only way to use that card again is to reformat that card.

hope this helps.
