This is normal. Many cameras will not display photos taken by other cameras.

Your virus software might have deleted a driver file in the camera, because it thought it was a virus? Try doing a system restore to the camera and see if it works. //David

it sounds like you deleted the images. If you are downloading images from your camera or card....you should open the folder to view images. hold control key down and select all images that you want to download. right click on them on click save.

it sounds like you are trying to rename a folder before downloading anything. I know that when I try to edit or rotate any of my images on my card, i first need to download the images to a folder before doing any edits. it does sound like you were trying to rename your folder. normally, you would right click on folder, and click rename. hope this helps. if you need anything else, feel free to ask!!!

Unable to upload the pics. while trying to copy, the message says, all the pics are stored in hidden files. what to do?


Hi, you unhide the hidden files in the Computer. Please open the folder containing images of the Digital Camera and click on Tools>Folder Options> View tab> Show Hidden files, folders and Drives option. This will show the hidden files in the Memory Card of the Digital Camera.

What is a DCIM FILE, How can I convert Into a dcim file. I would like to copy picture in my Camera it is copying but when I run the camera shows no picture.


The DCIM file is the folder is the folder which images or pictures taken are saved. Inside the DCIM folder should be should be one or more folders. The picture files are stored in one of these two folders. Look for the filenames that end in .jpg or something like DSC0001.JPG or DSC0002.JPG.

When you plugged in your camera to your computer's usb device, right click on your Start button, and choose Explore. The windows explorer window will open. Click on the (-) beside My Computer and the (-) beside Local Drive C: to minimize the list of folders. Now, you should be looking at the drive letter that defines your Camera. It could be drive E or F. Click on that drive and it will show your the contents on your right panel. Look for those folders and copy them to your local drive.

If you need further assistance, dont hesitate to ask or comment back.

Goodluck!

Sony cybershot T200 is recognised as a driver, but...


Click and open that ‘driver’, you may see two folders DCIM and MISC. click and open DCIM, you may see another folder such as 101MSDCF, open it you’ll see all the pictures. Select the pictures then copy to wherever you want.

Cannot delete the pictures on my memory stick. Would like to delete all at once rather than one at a time.


Its simple.
After connecting sony camera USB to laptop, a window will pop up automatically.
In that select files to open.
You can see a folder named DCIM.
click and open DCIM folder, it will contain another folder 101MSDCF.
Inside 101MSDCF you will find all photos that were taken.

This is what i do to reclaim the memory...
I dont know whether its standard way to delete the photos from sony memory stick.
any support guys from sony camera can comment on this solution...

thanks
Select and delete.

Unable to view the pictures folder


Hi, I got the solution for myself. Initially I have enabled to view the hidden folder option and even then I was not able to see the folder, then later I have disabled the options Hide Extensions for Known file types and Hide Protected Operating system files. Then I could see the folder and able to retrieve the photos. Once I have taken my photos I have formatted my MMC card and it is working normally.
