Memory Stick File Error

I just bought a 2GB ProDuo Memory Stick for my Sony DSC-W120 and I keep getting File Error across the picture when I try to view it. The internal memory doesn't give me this message, only when I insert the memory stick. I've tried formatting the memory stick and that doesn't work either. Please help.

Could be that the camera does not support a 2G stick. Check the operators manual.

Not Able to Transfer Photos

To get things clear for me, some questions. Do you use a Memory Stick Duo? As you know you can't use a Memory stick in your camera.
Can you see any picture you shot, on the display of the camera?
Did you protect the pictures in the memory and then did a format?
Because format will not look to any software protection, you really lost all pictures.

If so, there are some programmes, that could possibly restore your pictures, if you did nothing more than formatting the memory card.

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.

File error

I was having the same problem with my 4GB memory stick pro duo, when i took more than 50 pictures with my camera (dsc-w90) i would get the blue screen with the file error message. I'm guessing you bought the memory stick on ebay right? I bought mines there and it turns out it's a fake one. If you also bought it there then you most likely have a fake memory stick because I found out that most of the memory sticks sold on ebay are fake, to help you figure out if you have a fake one or not check out this guide or google fake memory stick pro duo.
