If all your images are backed up on your computer, just format the media card IN THE CAMERA, and that should re-set everything for you when next you take a photo.

My Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-W150 no longer displays older photos on my camera. It now only displays ones taken since 1/1/2011. When I check on the computer they are all there. I would like to delete some older...


If the old photos are not displaying in the Camera, the most common reason will be the default folder structure might have changed.
I understand that you're able to view the old photos in the Camera by connecting it to the Computer.
In that case, you can delete the unwanted photos from the Camera after connecting the Camera to the Computer.
I hope it will resolve the issue. If you're still not getting enough space in the Memory on the Camera, you may transfer the new required images to a folder in the Computer and then format the Memory of the Camera.
Once you format the Camera, the memory on the Camera free up and you can copy the required new images back to the DCIM folder in the Camera.
Please let me know if you require any clarifications.

What if I erased the...DMCI folder in my memory card? I can no limport my pictures in my desktop because there is nothing in my memory card..


Hi,

It is not recommended to erase the DCIM Folder in the Camera as this is the root directory in the Digital Camera which contains DCIM (Digital Camera images). This DCIM Folder contains the sub directory where the images are getting saved. if the folder is deleted manually from the Computer, then the Camera will not recognize the Memory Stick inserted and the Computer also. if the folder is deleted or edited, then I suggest you to Format the Memory Stick again in the Camera using the Format option in the Menu of the Camera.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Unable to open dcim folder from disk


Data center infrastructure management (DCIM) folder is gone when a card has been formated or deleted or has failed. If the pictures where deleted on the computer you can get them back by recycle bin. If there not there you can download recovera at Filehippo.com if that dosent find them they are most likly gone. You need to format the card and put back in camera and take a picture then insert back into computer and see if it created your DCIM folder back.

Sony dsc-w50. iam not finding the folder to delete photos after connecting to pc. but able to import to pc.


The images will be in the DCIM Folder.

Go to the "My Computer" or "Computer" window, click on the Drive which represent the Camera and locate the DCIM folder and delete the images.

However, it is recommend to delete the images using the Camera (not from the Computer).

You may try formatting the Memory Stick. Formatting the Memory Stick will delete all the Data from the Memory Stick (Camera).

To format the Memory Stick:

Press the Menu button on the Camera -> SETUP -> MEMORY STICK TOOL -> Format -> OK.


Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!

Not able to 'delete' a picture from my Lumix TZ3


Sounds like a MobileMate quirk Tanya. Use your USB cable connection to your PC/Camera interface and delete pics that way too see if this funny goes away.

If it does, and I believe it will, then it is a SanDisk issue not revising the File Allocation Table(FAT) after deleting the Pic File on the mem card.

You could also find out if this is just an SDHC SD card reader issue by using an older less dense standard 1 or 2Meg non-SDHC mem card in the reader and see if issue goes away.

The fallback of course to view and delete the pics on the camera before download, or download pics then note which pic file numbers you want deleted after viewing on PC, then put SD card back in camera and delete them there.

Another option for trial, is to cut and paste the whole DCIM folder, or sub pic folder to your PC from off the SD card using the card reader. The camera automatically generates subfolders under the DCIM folder if you completely remove(deleting by a cut or move), when you take your first picture on a camera with a DCIM but not sub pic folder. Try this first and I think you will find all pics will be deleted from camera that are in a subfolder under DCIM. If not, then cut or move the whole DCIM folder and create a new DCIM(empty) folder on the SD card using the PC and card reader. Of course using this method you cannot selective delete individual pics from the mem card. You would be deleting them all after the Folder cut or move from the SD card.

Cannot delete the pictures on my memory stick. Would like to delete all at once rather than one at a time.


Its simple.
After connecting sony camera USB to laptop, a window will pop up automatically.
In that select files to open.
You can see a folder named DCIM.
click and open DCIM folder, it will contain another folder 101MSDCF.
Inside 101MSDCF you will find all photos that were taken.

This is what i do to reclaim the memory...
I dont know whether its standard way to delete the photos from sony memory stick.
any support guys from sony camera can comment on this solution...

thanks
Select and delete.

Downloading the photographs


To download without the software, you will need either the usb cord that came with the camera, or a memory card reader for your computer. For the first step, plug the camera into the computer and camera via the usb cable provided. put the camera in playback mode and turn it on. If you use a memory card reader, remove the card from the camera and insert it into the proper slot on the reader.
Now for PC users - go to 'my computer' (vista its just 'computer') and under 'media with removable devices' you should see the camera come up (or memory card folder). double click, and then you should see a folder that says DCIM. Click and drag that folder onto your desktop. Congrats, you just transfered your photos. Now the folder DCIM on your desktop should be opened and the folders within DCIM contain your images. Sort the photos in whatever way makes sense to you (most likely to be in my pictures (under my documents)). Be sure to delete the DCIM folder off the desktop AFTER you moved all of the images into their proper folders...otherwise next time you try to do this, there will be a conflict with folders named DCIM. This method keeps the images on your memory card. If you would like to remove them, after you re-insert the card into your camera, turn on the camera, press menu, go to the set-up screen (yellow) and go to format - this will erase every picture on your card and make a new slate for when you take new pics.
