Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-P32 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Lost Images I have recently taken numerous images( about 250) which have been stored on a new 1Gb memory card. I reviewed some of the images at the time so know they were on the card. On returning home i have attempted to download the images to find there are now only 156 pictures remaining. I have checked for any other memeory stores but there is nothing else on the card and know the numbers are well within the capacity limit. Any ideas where these images may have gone please? Many Thanks.

    Took several pictures yesterday of grandson, then this morning accidentally change to RAW format. All images from yesterday are gone, but RAW images (9 of them) are fine. Have tried a couple of recovery tools, with no success. 256MB disc involved.

    Jackboy, i got the same problem but worse - I had 300 images, played back a few, then took more pictures. Went home, and when i played back the photos, card reader says "no image." How in the world would this happen and can I fix it. This was on a Samsung s630. I tried putting the card in my printer, and in another camera. It says "no image."

    I had over 680 images on my 4 GB SD card taken w/ my Nikon D40. I transferred them to my PC using Nikon Transfer. I am now only able to view 42 of those images. The other files are there, but cannot be opened. I am able to obtain info about the files via properties (JPEG, 2.7 MB etc....). Has anyone come across this issue before?...if so how were you able to recover the files? I've tried to open the files using multiple image viewers (including Nikon ViewNX). Some of the programs freeze up completely when I attempt to open the problem files (Picasa, MS Image viewer, Adobe PS).

You may have possibly partially transferred images to the computer - are they anywhere to be found? You may have whilst taking images altered the resolution setting thus reducing the capacity of the card. Download this and run the memory card through it it will pull up any missing images. or downd load the program, install it and direct it to the plugged in camera in the download mode. Also get hold of a card reader, saves on batteries and this sort of problem

C530 Kodak. Inserted new memory card 1.0gb and took several pics.. Tried to review but message appeared "no images to display on memory card". I can only access a limited number on internal memory???

Is the camera able to use a 1gb card? Use the Camera Setup Menu to Format the Memory Card. Use camera Setup menu to tell the camera to use the Memory card instead of the Internal memory.

How do i clear the internal memory from my camera. on the scean it says internal memory full

The M530 has 32 MB of internal memory, 20 MB of which can be used to store images. You delete images the same way you would if they were stored on an SD/SDHC card. Take out the SD/SDHC card if one is present (so you don't delete images on the card) and turn on the camera in Review mode (press the right-facing arrow button). Use the arrows to move forward and backward in the image list. Press the Delete button to delete them and free up the internal memory.

Hope this helps!

Memory card problem

Use the Picture Motion Browser to export the pictures from internal memory to the memory card. From page 43 of the manual:

1. Connect the camera to the computer. If the AutoPlay Wizard appears, close it.

2. Start up the PMB program.

3. Click the button with the two arrows and follow the instructions.

For more details refer to your PMB manual. If you've lost your manuals, you can downloat them from

The images stored on the 1GB memory card are getting jumpled (one image over the other one) Some images are overwritten with some other images which were already stored

Sound to me like the File System has got corrupted on the device,

I suggust you goto Window Explorer, right button click the removable drive,

select properties >> tools >> check now, that should any issues, make sure you select both options.


Changing memory settings

the camera allows for 8 pics to be taken using its internal memory (IN). If you want to be able to get more images than that you can purchase an xD picture card that gets inserted to the camera that will allow for more images to be taken and stored. The camera more than likely supports 1gb or 2gb capacities of xD cards.

Internal Memory is Full

Go into review, and then menu. Go to image storage and then set "auto" or memory card. You may have it set to store your images in the internal memory.

Camera not properly reading memory card

The problem stems from deleting some of the images from the PC. You need to copy all the files onto the PC, and delete all of them from the card on the camera. Then reformat the card on the camera. Then take 1 picture on the camera.

After you have just 1 new photo on the card, try copying the older files back onto the card in the same directory as the 1 new photo. This may work.

If it doesn't work, the problem may be with missing hidden thumbnail files. In that case you may not be able to get the photos to display on the camera again.

Memory card contains no images after camera turned back on

Are you able to access the images using a card reader on your computer ?

Lost images

Take out the memory card from the camera and try it in another camera used this type of memory card and it will let you know if the problem is with your camera or your memory card. In case you will found out that the problem is with the memory card - you need for a data recovery software to recover your pictures. There are a lot of recovery software's at the market and some of them are even for free. Look for it in the internet, under "memory card recovering pictures" Good luck
