Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W50 Digital Camera
I have a Sony Cybershot DSC W50. When viewing recently taken pictures on the camera's viewing screen, several of them do not show up and it shows a "file error" message on the screen. Those pictures were there when I first looked through them, and those same pictures show up when I insert that memory stick into my computer to upload them. What is the "file error" and how do I get them back.
Your pictures appear to have been corrupted.
Here is what you can try:
copy the files from your card directly to the computer HD. Then look at the files with your computer system browser, and choose the full view, or in Windows it would be VIEW/ List or details . If the names are missing any letters, then simply do this:
Make a copy of the original file and rename it to something like:
I_G123B,jg (original renamed file...note that I added the B so the name is not the same as the original) to IMG123.jpg . Once the file is renamed to what may have been originally, you will be able to view the picture again.
Some times the corrupted name may be even more confusing. The main thing to remember is to make sure you have a .jpg or .JPG at the end so that the computer system will recognize the file format and be able to read the file. The way you name what is before the period ( .jpg) is not that important, but should reflect the original file for your own information.
This file corruption is more common than one may think. I have seen it on Nikons, Sonys, Canons.
