    I have the same problem - it's when I try to view the pics on the amera after they've been taken. All are taken on the same resolution etc but about a quarter won't show up. it's like they ty to load - I can see the picture all pixelated and then the screen turns black and says file error.. I'm not sure whether the camera is faulty or not as it seems like many people are having the same problem.. can anyone help?

I need more information in order to help you.
What software are you using, and where are the pictures located? If you have not yet transferred them to your computer, the application may not be able to access them fast enough, and could result in this error.
Transfer first, try again from the local drive.
If that does not work, please include additional information including the software in use, location of images, file formats, and platform and OS you are on (PC, Mac, etc.).

Unable to view photos i have taken, Screen says Read Error


If your photos are stored on the memory card, then removethe memory card from the camera and insert it into an USB memory card reader.Connect this USB memory card reader and memory card into the USB port of yourworking computer. Your computer will see this as an USB Mass Storage Device oran external storage device; you can then open the folder on the memory card andcopy the photos to your computer.Memory card reader is a handy device and is inexpensive. Youcan copy photos from other cameras and you can also download photos off yourmemory card to someone else's computer without the need of installing anyprograms.

File Error shows up when I try to view photos taken

The above link describes the following:


The LCD screen may display a FILE ERROR message when trying to view a still image on the camera if the image was rotated, modified and overwritten using editing software on a computer. To play images you have taken on the camera, it is recommended that you do not make any changes to the original image files.

Another problem may be that the Memory Stick Pro/Duo or Memory Stick Pro used in the camera has dirty contacts, causing this error.

Or, the memory stick pro/duo is damaged somehow.

Remove and blow out the memory chamber with compressed air, and remove from any adapters and clean with compressed air and then reinsert fully into the chamber for the Memory Stick on the camera.

When i view my photos on my camera they come up with 'read error'


Sounds like the card is failing - try recovering the images with a free software package - Google will find you lots - then Format or discard the card. Format in the camera - NEVER format using a computer

File error Sony Cybershot DSC-W120


The LCD screen may display a FILE ERROR message when trying to view a still image on the Camera if the image was rotated, modified and overwritten using editing software on a Computer.

To play images you have taken on the Camera, it is recommended that you do not make any changes to the original image files.

It seems that the images are rotated or modified in the Computer.

When looking back at photos taken, the camera freezes and flashes up 'file error'. I have tried browsing slowly as well as quickly and it still happens, it is really infuriating!

File error


I have seen this problem with generic SD memory cards so it could be a faulty memory stick.  Try to get a replacement.  If you want to try to recover the pictures you have taken, I suggest Zero Assumption Recovery (Google for it). Check to see if it is compatible with your camera before downloading.

DirectCD and cd1000 and File Error viewing on cd1000


I've had some errors on my discs. What I've found is after you finalize them, if there is still room on the disc you can initialize then and use the empty space still on them. This can also fix some error, and I don't know why.
