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!!

When memory card is inserted the camera wont work


You can insert CF memory and some memory stick cards when you use a special adapter. When you use a memory tick, make sure it is compatible, because the memory stick is the most incompatible memory card, if you have not the correct one.
When you use a CF memory card, check all contacts. Not one contuse pinn in the camera should be belt a little. Use a bright light and a loupe to check.

How do I download my pictures from my Sony camera to the computer?


Here is one instructional video tutorial from Sony Support; also could try this procedure:
- Take off your memory stick from your camera and insert it into your memory stick adapter. Open your camera's battery case and gently push the memory stick until you hear a faint "click," then remove it from the camera. Place the memory stick inside the adapter that comes with your camera.
- Insert the adapter into your computer's memory card reader, if you have one. The adapter, which is larger than the memory stick itself, is approximately the same size as an ordinary SD memory card.
- Connect your Sony digital camera to your computer using its USB cable if you can't find or don't have a memory stick adapter. Insert the small end of the USB cable into the camera. Insert the wider, flatter end into one of your computer's USB ports.
- Click "Open Device to View Files" to open your memory stick or camera. Search for the DCIM folder and click on it. Navigate through any photo subdirectories you've created and highlight photos you want to transfer to your computer. Right-click anywhere in a given folder, then click "Copy." Go to the location where you want to store your images, then right-click within that folder. Click "Paste" to transfer your images.

Hope this helps (remember to rate and comment this answer).

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 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,
