Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W50 Digital Camera

Unable to view the pictures folder

I have taken some 120 snaps with Sony Digicam, When I connected the cam to the pc, it detected some virus and deleted it. But when I open the folder it only shows one folder which is 0 bytes and some hidden files. I am unable to view the folder which contains the photos(DCIM). But when I see the properties of the camera when detected as extra drive it shows some 200MB, but the folder contents are 0 bytes. I am afraid that my photos might be lost if I format the card. Can some one suggest me a solution which will help me to take the pics without formatting the card.

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.

Welcome to Fixya

Sounds like the pictures are hidden. Take out the memory card of the acmera and plug it in to a computer that has a card reader. Click the file and folder options of your computer then click the box that says SHOW HIDDEN FILES AND FOLDERS. You should be able to view your pictures now using the computer.

Thank you for using Fixya!

Consider NOT using the USB connection.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program, such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

Date / Time Display Problem.


The date and time (and a lot more) are stored with every picture in its EXIF metadata. Any photo viewing/editing program should be able to display this data. To print this data, please consult the documentation for whatever program you're using to print your pictures. Depending on the program and printer you may print the date on the image, in the margins, or on the back.

Provided u got a Windows XP or higher operating system in your computer, u may :-

1. directly connect the digicam to the computer's USB port (s). the Windows XP or higher operating system in your computer ll automatically recognize the digicam as a separtate storage device - copy all the contents then paste them in a folder at your hard disk,

2. Bring out the sd card - put it into a card reader (Rs. 100/- apice), the Windows XP or higher operating system in your computer ll automatically recognize the digicam as a separtate storage device - copy all the contents then paste them in a folder at your hard disk,

Delete the file in MSC folder


Hi

The folder is created automatically on the memory card, you should be able to browse to it by connecting the camera to your computer and opening up the camera storage through "My Computer" on your desktop.

Unable to view pictures in folder


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