Cd1000 storage problems

Please help! Many of my cd-r discs written from my camera cannot be read on computers. Apparently the disks are "overfilled". Does anyone know of any software available that I can purchase to regain access to the disks? I have been reading up on some CD-R Diagnostic 1.6 software. Anyone have any experience with it? Would really really appreciate help. Thanks Cathy

Re: cd1000 storage problems

I experimented with this when I first got my CD1000 in Sept of 2000. It is not a 100% failure or problem, but about 1 in 3 disks have performed in this manner on my camera. Normally I stop at about 185 pics and finalize to avoid a potential problem. While at home I don't worry about it since I finalize them on my computer anyway. When traveling I do take that precaution, however. It may only be peculiar to my camera software, but it does perform that way for me. Fortunately my computer can always read the ones the camera won't. I havent lost a shot in almost 7,000 images thus far.

Re: cd1000 storage problems

Its really not a problem for program you mentioned or other good CD software which can 'finalize' a CD out of your camera. The camera software has a bug which will not let it write more than the 156MB that Sony formats its CDRs. 3rd party CDR's are as much as 185-190 MB. The camera software may let you write more than the 156MB and then will not finalize the CD, it is readable and can be 'finalized' by software on your PC, however. I use adaptech's Platinum version. I also have CD-Diagnostic which will handle this problem. If you have a CD writer on your PC you should have software which will handle this.

Re: cd1000 storage problems

Sorry Cathy, I don't know of any software that might diagnose the disks. Can you read the problem disks in the camera? If so, perhaps the problem disks are not finalized. I've completed 30 cd's in my CD1000 and never had a problem with the disks being overfilled. The camera simply won't write to the disk if there isn't enough room for the image and the space needed to finalize the disk. You don't say what brand CDR you're using, which might be a problem as well.

Sony Mavica CD1000 download pic's to Vista sysyem


It seems like the only solution is to find a "disc recovery" program to pull the pictures off the CD. I found and bought ($39.00) the program CDRoller. Although it is designed to recover problem files I found it sees the pictures and allows you to move them to your PC hard drive. Take the unfinalized CD, put it in you CD drive and run CDRoller. It finds the DCIM folder. You can open it to get the folder that contains the pictures. Open it and all of your picture file names are displayed. You can select all and do a save. It will ask you where you want to save them and define the folder on your PC. When the save is done your pictures are on the PC and your disc is still unfinalized so you can put it back into your camera and continue to take pictures.

DirectCD and cd1000 and File Error viewing on cd1000


I've had some errors on my discs. What I've found is after you finalize them, if there is still room on the disc you can initialize then and use the empty space still on them. This can also fix some error, and I don't know why.

Writing edited jpegs to CD1000


The problem is an incompatibility between Photoshop and Sony JPEG files. (I thought JPEG was supposed to be a standard!) A simple workaround is to use the PictureGear program supplied by Sony. Use its File – Process command to save the Photoshop frames to the CD-R. It is also useful to ensure that the frames are resized to 1600x1200, 1024, 640 etc to eliminate the black border that would otherwise be displayed by the camera. This “feature” can be useful however if you have frames that have important sections at the edge of the frame. This would often be lost when displaying on a TV. Save the frame as, say, 1520 x 1140 and you will always see the full picture! Another possible advantage is to use achieve greater JPEG compression. The CD1000 will accept PictureGear at the largest filesize (10) but one can use compression 8 or even less and get many more frames on a disk. There is a little loss of quality but much less than resizing down to a smaller image size. I would guess that the above will also apply to memory stick.

I'm not sure, but I think you'll have to upgrade your copy of DirectCD to work with XP. Check with Roxio for the latest info.
