Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-P52 Digital Camera
Hiya... have a sony digital camera that has been working fine up until recently.. Took about 60pics on a 128mb card on a 2.0 format......which should give me roughly around 80plus pics... Anyway, only about 20 photos are showing up on the card, either by looking at the photos through the camera itself or by downloading to the p.c.. the memory card itself is showing that the space has been used.....so where have the pics gone??? i did notice the other day, that after taking some photos....the camera screen went blank.....i couldnt power it off, unless i took the batts out...after that....the recent photos that had been taken had dissapeared, yet when you look at "photos left on memory card" is shows the same as before when the pics were there! hope this makes sense to someone!!!!! Basically its showing that space has been taken up....but doesnt have the photos to prove it. anyone with any idea! help would be much appreciated!!!

Sounds like the file allocation table on the card got screwed up. Try Googling Compact Flash Data Recovery. I know you're not using compact flash cards but the techniques for data recovery are pretty much the same regardless of the media. If and when you're able to recover what you can, I wouldn't use that card anymore myself. Good luck!
