My photos were deleted are they gone permanently


You can often successfully recover deleted photos from a PC, phone or camera memory card or USB Memory stick, it just depends on what's happened since the files were deleted.
When you delete files the data itself isn't deleted, just the index entry that says where the data for those files is located. The space containing the deleted files is also now marked as free space so it is available to the system for any new files to be written there instead.

If and when that happens, then it becomes too late to recover your deleted files so it is very, very important to not save any new files or data to the device concerned.
If the deleted files are on a memory card or USB memory stick, just don't save any new files to it.

One of the easiest ways to see if you can recover deleted files is to try some file recovery software. Recommended this data recovery as it saved my life many times.

If your pics are safely downloaded onto your computer, then insert the card into the camera, go into the menu and find "format"...follow the on-screen instructions.

I try to take a pic but it says 'no memory space on memory stick' ...even though I just deleted photos via the computer...?!?


Never delete using the computer...the camera doesn't recognize anything the computer does. Now, you need to format the stick in the camera to get it working again.

Sony dsc-w50. iam not finding the folder to delete photos after connecting to pc. but able to import to pc.


The images will be in the DCIM Folder.

Go to the "My Computer" or "Computer" window, click on the Drive which represent the Camera and locate the DCIM folder and delete the images.

However, it is recommend to delete the images using the Camera (not from the Computer).

You may try formatting the Memory Stick. Formatting the Memory Stick will delete all the Data from the Memory Stick (Camera).

To format the Memory Stick:

Press the Menu button on the Camera -> SETUP -> MEMORY STICK TOOL -> Format -> OK.


Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!

What do you do when it says no memory space in the memory stick?


usually you can offload your photos and reformat the disk... once that's done you should have space again. if not there might be a defect in the stick.

I recently deleted my photos. How can I retreive them? digital camera sony cybershot dsc-w120 7.2 mega prix.


First of all, do not save any new file to camera's memory card.

Take out memory card, and connect it to computer using a card reader. You should see memory card shown as a drive letter (like H:) in Windows Explorer.
Download this digital camera recovery software
Install and open the photo recovery software, select the memory card, and click 'Start' button.

I can't get the memory stick-Sony Magic Gate 128 MB-to completely clear


As long as the camera is deleting some of the photos, the problem is likely with the memory card. Try another card in the camera and see if it clears properly, and also try inserting the card into your computer and deleting everything via the computer.

Deleted photo recovery from cameras internal memory


Hi,

Please try this, turn on your camera, insert a blank memory stick, slide the side switch down to the lowest point, should say “No file in this folder” click on menu, click on Setup, use the arrows and go to Memory Stick, choose “Copy” choose “Album” the “OK” this will copy all you pictures from the Album in your camera to your memory stick.

Hope this helps

'Card not Initialized'


I just had the same issue with my Fuji F10 Finepix camera and of course all you can get the camera to do is tell you 'card not initialized'...and nothing else works! I resolved it by attaching the camera to the MAC, accessing the camera files thru the MAC by going to the icon that pops up on the desktop for the camera, deleting the files in the camera Fuji directory, then detached the camera and it was all back to normal. I assume that could have also been done the same way on a PC via USB port, accessing the camera via 'My Computer'. I believe the root cause was: I had accessed the photos on the camera via the MAC and iPhoto, then after transferring the photos to the MAC, deleted the photos thru the iPhoto delete option. This in fact did not delete the photos on the camera, somehow causing this 'card not initialized' condition. CW
