Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S600 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Lost photos when trying to download

I connected my DSC-S600 to my iMac OS10.3.9 and couldn't see the camera icon, and it didn't automatically go into auto download. I shut the computer off. Now I can get the camera icon on the desktop, but i Photo says there are no images on the camera. When I turn the camera on now, it says there is "No files in this folder." Will I be able to get all my pictures back? Do I need to reset my camera and start over?

    I'll have to remember fixya.com next time I have a problem. Instead of trying to figure it out myself, I should have waited for your expert to do the solving. I spent hours searching Mac sites, Sony camera sites, talking with customer service at Sony who referred me to a Sony media services site, who referred me to the SanDisk site...where I downloaded a Demo version of Photorecovery for Macs. The Demo proved that the pictures could be recovered, so I was willing to pay the $39.95 to LC Technology International. Informatica got me to the same place and I wouldn't have had all the hassles.

Sorry my only answer is for windows but if the pictures are valuable........... 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. 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/rescuepr... 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 recovered your pictures to your PC safely! Please update the question & let us know if the information given was useful to you - Good Luck!

How do you delete photos from Camera after you have downloaded and saved to PC? (Apart from delteing one at a time?

When you are connected to the PC the camera should look like another drive on your computer. Usually E: or F: open it up find the pictures, highlight the ones you want to delete and press delete or drag them to the recycle bin.

Lost disc

Hi,
DSC-W35 / 55 is plug and play camera, hook it with computer through USB cable, Windows will recognize it automatically and will install required drivers.
You will see Mass Storage device icon in My Computer, click it to see pictures of camera. No need of software cd installation, Windows has inbuilt drivers for this camera.
Thanks.

Date doesnt show on pictures

The info is stored with the picture (not on it) in a form called "metadata". This can be recalled by almost any photo editing program.

Blurred photos - Sony Cyber-shot S600

It may be that the infra red sensor needs cleaning or is covered with something like fluff or grease from sun cream. This would prevent it seeing clearly in lower light conditions.

Sony dsc-w80 lost pictures!

hi there

dont fret, you still might have another chance to retreive those pictures, look for a card reader/writer and insert your cameras card to it. be sure that they are compatible in size.

plug it into your computer and hopefully you will see the pictures.

but if this is still unsucessful, sad to say that your card got corrupted. and the only way to use that card again is to reformat that card.

hope this helps.

Sanyo VPC-SX500

Your iMac came with iPhoto. You should be able to download your photos with it. There is a freeware app that may work as well. You can find it here: http://www.bluechillies.com/details/20859.html
