Re: Lost files on my mvc-cd400?

I purchased my CD-400 when it hit the market and have shot thousands of great images with it... all things considered. Maybe 3 or 4 times over the years have I had that problem and have failed at every attempt to resolve the issue. Someone suggested it was the brand of CD I was using. I rejected that, because I by disks they way they come: in packs. One other thought: ALL these digital cameras are nothing but scaled down computers, and you know computers. Every once in a while they get a wedgie you can't, well, you know. I know it's a hassle, but if you've shot some very important images: wedding, super-shots on vacation, etc., USB those puppies as soon as you get back to a pc. Maybe you won't lose all.

I don't know a direct "solution," but you should be able to USB your images from the unfinalized CD to your pc.

NO! Connect the USB cable and transfer your images. That way you can fill your disk before finalizing. BTW: Does not this camera have an "Unfinalize" option?

Disk error c:13:00


A substantial percentage of my Memorex 3.5" CDs won't finalize, and when I susbsequently try to review the photos on the camera, it tells me there are no files on it. Nothing will download to the computer via the USB either.

Disk error


Hello anuhera, This is a very common problem with the cd400 camera, I have learned the hard way that Sony's recommendation to use their [expensive] media was more than just self interest. There are a lot of quality issues with CD media. As my camera has aged it is more and more intolerant of off-brand media. This is true even though I have not shot more than a 1000 images with the camera. While I can plan on getting the c:13:01 error with unbranded disks, I can still use the Sony disks without much if any problem. To get your pictures back, go to www.cdroller.com and download their recovery software, worked great for me. Let me know if you need any additional info. Best regards, nightdiver

CD400 Disc Problem


I doubt it altho I really don't know. I've put over 6000 shots through my 300 and finalized in all kinds of conditions - including bumpy roads, trams, and airplanes. I've never experienced what you described, although twice in severely bumpy conditions I had one pic on each disk with half its pixels corrupted. Sounds like there is something severely wrong. To test it you can try not finalizing and look at the pics through your USB connection.

To review the picture just taken - seconds; to retrieve from the disk you have to finalize the disk which takes about a minute for a full disk, seconds for a partially filled disk. Then you just put it in your CD-drive and you can view them immediately. If you have Roxio with a CD-RW you may not have to finalize the disk first, and you always have the option to transfer pictures via the USB cable (same as with other digicams).
