Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-V3 Digital Camera

1 Answer

No CF card

I've always used a Sony Memory Stick (have never had a CF card).
After downloading a batch of photos from my memory stick, and replacing it in the camera, the "No CF Card" error message appears on my viewing screen.
Upon re-checking the Memory Stick with my computer (using a SONY magic gate USB card reader) it seems OK.
The problem is, my Sony DSC V-3 camera doesn't seem to know it's there - it keeps looking for a CF card instead!

    Canon 40D shows that the CF card is full and now I cannot down load any photos from the camera or from the CF card using a card reader.

The camera body has a tiny switch marked "CF" in one position and Sony's "memory stick" symbol in the other. Apparently I accidentally reset the switch from "memory stick" to "CF" while slipping the camera body into (or out of) its carrying-case. Once I had set this switch from "CF" back to the "memory stick" position, everything worked fine. Solution:  read the user's manual more carefully next time!!

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.

After slideshow memory stick is missing photos (not on computer)


If you put the memory stick back into the camera can you see them thru the camera menu? If so your computer's SD card port may be having issues. try using the card in another computer or use the cameras USB cable to transfer the pictures from the camera to the computer if it has one. Do other memory sticks work in the computer ok? If you cannot see them in the camera either then the pictures will be corrupted and probably cannot be recovered. Then the card will need to be formatted to erase any errors on the card. Always use the camera to format a card whenever possible...Hope that helps.

I have an EOS Canon 400D digital SLR and my husband has bought me a Sony photo printer DDP-FP75 . I had wanted to be able to insert the memory card but it doesn't seem compatible. Can I print using the...


The two are not immediately compatible. The Canon EOS 400D uses a Compact Flash card. The Sony Photo Printer you have accepts SD and Memory Stick cards. Unfortunately, the CF card and SD card are very different.

The easiest solution I can think of would be for you to get an inexpensive card reader (make sure it accepts Compact Flash cards), attach it to your PC and then use it to read the CF card from your Canon EOS -- and print to your Sony printer.

I hope this helps. If it does, please rate the solution offered. My goal is always FixYa or Helpful, never TFT or IA. Regards,

Memory card formatting error


Yeah, if you format the memory card, you will lose all data on it. try to scan memory card with updated anti virus software and always use memory card by camera to PC.
