For other users that may read this post, this problem is related with the lents mechanism. If the camera isn't able to properly initialise the CCD sensor or the lents servo-motors this error will occur. In anycase this will require qualified service intervention as it's not in anyway a user manageable problem.
One of my friends has the same problem with her camera, but we can't even get old pictures to come up on the screeen. When you turn it on it says access for about 15 seconds, then tells you to tell the camera off and then back on.

Sounds like they accidentally pressed the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of the camera. This manually turns the screen on and off to save batteries. You would then use the optical viewfinder in its place. To turn the screen back on, just press the DISP button one more time with the camera turned on.
Turn your command dial to P or to auto. Press the menu button. The screen should light up with the main menu. If it does not, find the two buttons on your camera that has small green dots beside them. Press both of these buttons together at the same time until the LCD screen flashes on the top of the camera. Now try to access the menu again. If that does not help, call 1-800-nikonux for their 24/7/365 tech help

This seems to be a commonn problem for Sony and has been addressed several times in this forum:
Please read all the solutions - basically, looks like the problem is with a loose connection and the fixes range from cleaning the contacts to giving a whack to the camera!
The filename (e.g. DSC0012.jpg) shows the image number, the filespec shows the date and time recorded. Most software will give you document info about resolution of the image. I wouldn't worry about what the battery status was when the shot was taken or how many other images were on the Mstick.
I guess I'm not sure what you need.
