Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W80 Digital Camera
Having just bought a new W80 digital camera i wanted a memory card to go with it.
I decided to buy a 4GB memory card from someone on E-Bay, when i inserted the Memory Card in the camera and took a number of trial photos all appeared well.....
It was only when i tried to view these photos on the camera that i realized everything was not ok.....
Some of the photos were missing, some of them were blurred, others only showed half of the photo and the rest just showed a blue screen with the words ' FILE ERROR ' written across it...
I found somewhere that describes why this happens, and they say it is because the memory cards are counterfeit... have a look at this site and see for yourself....
If this link doesn't work just look on E-Bay and see what they have to say direct....
Hope you find this useful and you can pass it on to others......
I had this problem when I bought a 4GB memory card fron amazon. The file error message was showing on all pictures. I took my camera and memory card to a Sony shop. I compared the memory card with one in the shop and althought difficult to spot there were a few differences. I bought a 1GB card from the shop and have not looked back since! The problem has not occured once and my camera now takes ace pictures!

I had the same problem.
First, I changed my Memory-Stick, because after taking about 60 pictures the famous file error appeared.
Secondly, if the camera shows the famous "file error" this can be resolved - at least in my case - by taking out the battery for at least 4 hours.
So, if your camera is not in use, always take out the memory-stick and the battery and the problem does not appear. This helped in my case.
However, this is in my opinion anything but satisfying. I had a Nikon Coolpix nd never experienced any problems like the "file error" of the sony digicams.

If you bought your memory card on eBay, there is a good chance that is the problem, as i had that issue myself....after dealing with the seller and getting my money back, i went and bought a sony 4GB card from Circuit City, worked fine for a while, and then got the same error. I have a feeling it has something to do with the camera's software. I havent tried the battery trick yet but its next on the list
