Software to allow viewing of photos without a finalized disc
My computer crashed. XP Home Edition. I had something on the computer that would read my disc without having to finalize it. I could take it out of the camera, copy photos to my computer and put it back in the camera. It used the DCS numbers for each photo. I could then label the disc to match. Can't remember what software I used. Please help! firstname.lastname@example.org

That model uses a DVDR/RW type discs plus a memory card (SD, MMC or Sony Memory Sticks). To view photos from the disc simply go into view mode and use the joystick to move to the image you want to view. If you want to transfer images you need the USB cable that came with it and the original software to transfer images from the disc. While capturing video you can snap images but only to a memory card/stick. No card/stick while shooting video, then nothing was captured and the only way you can get any images is transferring a frame(s) from the video using the USB cable and their included software.
Here are links to the manufacturer website where you can still download the software that came with that model and a second link to view/save the manual in PDF format. Information to read in the manual are on pages 95 & 108.
Hi Brian, Try this, it may work.It will tell you whether or not it is the Camera or the Software. Your camera, as far as the computer itself and Windows XP is concerned is a 'DRIVE'. Try the following steps: 0 Go to the desktop of the computer and in a blank spot right click the mouse and using the menu CREATE A NEW FOLDER ON THE DESKTOP. LABEL IT "EMERSON PHOTO TEST" 1 Unplug the camera from the computer 2 Un-install the software. 3 If there are no pictures in the camera. Shoot some. 4 Turn the camera OFF. 5 While the camera is OFF, connect the it to the computer using it's cable. 6 Turn the camera ON (you should hear two musical notes telling you that it is connected. 7 Set the camera to the view mode as though your were looking at pictures on the screen on the camera back 8 There should appear a box on the screen. The first item in the box should be highlighted. It will say "Copy pictures to a folder on my computer using Microsoft Scanner and Camera Wizard"Click on that. 9 Follow each step of the wizard and deposit all of the pictures into the folder " Emerson Photo Test" Don't Erase the photos from the camera if it asks you. 10 Shut off the camera and disconnect it 11 Open up the folder on the desktop. At the top of the folder on the right select files view to Thumbnails. If your cable and camera are OK, the photos will be there. 12 To Test PhotoImpressions5, to see if it will view the photos without crashing your computer. Reinstall it and open the folder on the desktop. One additional thing. If your Windows XP is not fully up to date, you should download The Service Packs and install them until you get to Service Pack 3. To check which service pack you have now, if any, go to My Computer" and view "System Information" it will tell you which Service Pack you have. I hope this helps, Best Regards, Mark
The software disk contains third party programs of which Sanyo gave you license to use. You can download separate programs but you will also need to purchase their license. For the connectivity if you are using windows XP then just plug-in your camera into the USB port and it will automatically install so you can copy your photos and videos. The CD has the following software:
Ulead Photo Explorer 8.5 SE Basic (Windows)/Photo Explorer for Mac 2.0 (Macintosh)
I just got one of these and was having the same problem. What you have to do is create a folder within the DCIM folder on the memory card (you can name it 100Media). The photos have to go into the 100media folder. Good LUCK.
the c:13:01 is the error code. I was researching this same thing on my camera. It 'magically' fixes itself after anywhere from 1 minute (turn off, count to 20 and turn back on)to 1 month later. This time, I lost photo-ops with my kids and their cousins. Apparently, this is a loose connector - see link- and you can fix it by 1) smacking your camera around a little (no joke, this knocks the connector back, for a little while or 2) sending it to Sony for repair (about $350) or 3) follow this guy's suggestions and fix yourself. I haven't lost any actual photos, except the first time when this happened. Since then, I've put the CD in the computer and I've been able to pull off the pics. Can't use the CD again though, even if it's not full. The camera must mark the CD somehow to avoid overlaying photos(?). Anyway, here's the link and good luck :) http://www.pechorin.com/m/2003/07/12/SONY_C1301_ERROR-202719-43.html
I had a similar problem, I was able to view the images on the camera but could not download them to my computer. I have an external cd drive, HP CD writer plus. This drive does not require me to finalize my CDs in order to download my pictures. With the damaged CD, I used a piece of software called BADCOPY to recovery the files(pictures) on the CD. I was able to recover all but one picture from the damaged CD. (I tried using the cd drive on my pc and the recovery software did not find anything, I had to use the external drive)
If you can find software to read UDF (universal disk format) you may be able to recover your pix.
Whatever you do -- DO NOT reinitialize or finalize the disk. Your existing pix will certainly be lost if you do.
