SOURCE: how to recover the images which are showing as FILE error

First do not panic! It is possible to recover your pictures if you take care. Take the card from the camera (powered off) and if it has a "write protect" tab then lock it now. Do not try and write anything to the card or you risk causing more problems.

You can either plug in you camera to the PC as it should appear as a “Removable Drive” or put the card in a card reader attached to your PC.

Next, if you are comfortable with using a PC then you can download a FREE utility that will recover your photos from the following link:

http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/PhotoRec

If you need something a little more "user friendly" then you will need to buy the software. If you search the web for photo recovery software you will find many.
One I have used successfully is RescuePro that used to be bundled with some Sandisk products. Now you can get it from the link below:

http://www.lc-tech.com/software/prwindetail.html.

You can try the demo to see what you can recover before buying.

Remember - Do NOT try & write anything back to the card until you can recover your pictures to your PC safely!

SOURCE: displays file error message when trying to playback still images and video footage

Did you take the card and insert into computer/device to view photos?

Viewing photos can alter the format of the photos thereby preventing your camera from reading them.

I viewed some photos and rotated a few photos and my camera no longer recognizes the format.

good luck

SOURCE: System Error

You should try some photo recovery software to rescue the files on your camera card, here are some you may rely on. Both programs can also recover videos and music.
Photo Recovery Software (for Windows)
Mac Photo Recovery Software (for Mac OS X)

Be careful: Before your pictures are recovered, do not attempt to save more files to the card in case the original files(your pictures) are overwritten.

SOURCE: hello, I have a Sony Cybershot

The memory stick has become corrupted. You'll need to format the card in your camera (using the camera's format feature in its menus) to correct the problem. However, this WILL ERASE THE CARD. So you will want to do this only after you've recovered the current photos on the card. Please see this link to help you do such.

Why am I getting an Image Database File error on my Sony camera?

Would have been easier for me, when you had given the model number, but I give it a try. Most of the time you get these messages, when the file number is exceeding 999 or 9999. Or when the card or disk is full. Please try to recover all existing files from the memory (card and disk) and then try to format all memory devices.

IMAGE RECOVERY

Photo Recovery from Sony Cybershot is very easy using Remo Recover tool. I have used this application on my camera to recover deleted images many times and I was successful every time.

Image database error

The manual on page 126 says:
Image Database File error Cannot recover Import all of the images to the computer with "PMB", and format the memory card or the internal memory (page 97). To view the images again with the camera, export the imported images to the camera with "PMB".

If you used the card before in the same camera, it should be compatible. If you can't save the pictures normally, us an external card reader, to save or recover and save the pictures first. Then do a format in the card reader (FAT or FAT32) and when you reinsert the card in the camera, again format the card, this time in the camera. (You always should format in the camera, the first time you use a memory card in a camera, or after you had a failure tithe the memory card.

Hello! my name is Dima, sorry for my English, could u help me?! I lost pics from sony cybershot w210 how can i recover files? thank u

Hi,

I'm sorry to hear that the images captured in the Camera is deleted. To recover the images in the Camera, you may have to use any recovery Software or need to contact a Media Recovery firm. I suggest you to first try the Memory Card File Rescue Software. If the Software is not recovering the images deleted, the you have to send the Memory Card to the Media Recovery firm. You may try contacting media recovery firms like Sony Media Services.

Thanks for using FixYa
