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 photo recovery software
Install and open the photo recovery software, select the memory card, and click 'Start' button.

Hello, i took some pictures a few days back, but theres some problem while retreiving some of the images....the image for the particular pictures having problem shows a blue blank screen with file...

Best way is to download the pictures to a computer through a card reader (optional). The blue blank screen could be deleted images using the garbage can icon. Retrieving those images can be done but it cost to have a recovery program used and there is no grantee that the images can be extracted because the card my have been written over or formatted. Once you have your images saved to a computer the memory card should be loaded bak into the camera and the memory card formatted to give a clean working surface for the camera to write new files to.

Hello sir i have a problam . last night i shooted a video or some photos in a function.and when i come to home.the battery level is 10 min.then i want to finalize meantime the battry is stopped and...

I presume you were recording JPG's or video's to a DVD-R disk using the Sony camcorder, is this correct?

It finalizes the video to make it playable on a computer as a completed file. When you finalized it with a nearly dead battery it was in the middle of the process when the battery ran out. That is very dangerous to do with a nearly dead battery. It will corrupt the file or the entire disk if it runs out while it's writing to the disk. That's why some models won't let you start that unless you have it connected to AC power too.

It sounds like it was working on the file, got partway and ran out and corrupted the data.

So now it's stuck halfway done and that's not a mode it's expecting to see. It doesn't know what to do with the file or the disk.
The data is probably 99% intact but the formatting of the file or the file header isn't right anymore. You could try some other video player programs, and may find one that can read it - if you can read the disk at all.

You may have also been finalizing the DVD itself, if that is what you were recording onto ( you didn't say).

If that got interrupted while it was burning the final table of contents, etc then you probably won't be able to do anything with it. Someone who is very good with the intricate details of DVD copying and the file structures that are used may be able to rescue it though.

They'd have to read the disk in raw format or make it into an ISO image which allows them to make a copy of it. Then they can work on the copy without hurting the original any farther.

So again,, the data is probably there,,, since it was recorded on there, but the final file structure that is created during finalizing got missed or messed up, so it doesn't "know" that there is data there. So hang onto the disk, it's on there, you just need an expert that can convert the files into the proper format and finalize or retrieve the data off it.

Can I retreive deleted pictures

I didn't actually fix the problem, I found the manuel to my camera and I don't believe that you can retrieve the pictures once they have been deleted. If however anyone finds out differently please let me know.

I have somehow lost over 120 pictures from my disk. Is it possible to recover them from whatever the .ctg files are?

I will assume that you lost pictures from a memory card. If I'm correct, please follow the steps below.

There are a lot of recovery software that you can use to recover deleted files - specially pictures. You can try to use Zero Assumption Recovery. You can download the software at this site:

It's a free software (you do not neet to pay to use this), and it's easy to use.

Here are the steps that you need to do:
1.) After you install this software, connect your camera or memory card to your PC . Open the Zero Assumption Recovery software.

2.) Click Next. Select "Recover images from the digital camera.." and click Next again.

3.) Select the Physical Device - select your camera or memory card , click Next. [grab a cup of coffee since retrieving the files may take some time depending on the size of the memory (",) ]

4.) After retrieving the files - select all the files that can be recovered. Click Next.

5.) Select the button on the right side (close to Destination) and select where you want to save the files. Click "Start recovering files".

That's it.

I hope that helps.

Good luck and have a nice day!

To review the picture just taken - seconds; to retrieve from the disk you have to finalize the disk which takes about a minute for a full disk, seconds for a partially filled disk. Then you just put it in your CD-drive and you can view them immediately. If you have Roxio with a CD-RW you may not have to finalize the disk first, and you always have the option to transfer pictures via the USB cable (same as with other digicams).
