DirectCD and cd1000 and File Error viewing on cd1000
I took some photos, decided to use DirectCD (1st time user) to view them instead of finalizing the mini-disc. It worked fine, and I attached some of the photos to an email.
A week later when I was using the mini-CD again, I tried to view photos in the camera and some of them (the ones I sent via the emai?) could no longer be viewed - a blue screen came up on the LCD for those photos and when I click on it, it said File Error. It had me worried that I had 'lost' the photos, but when I put the mini-CD into any cd-rom I can view all the photos (I took some additional photos and must have finalized the mini-CD since the DirectCD viewing).
So, the question is: what's happened? Can I reset the files so I can view all of them in the camera (although not that big of a deal)?

I've had some errors on my discs. What I've found is after you finalize them, if there is still room on the disc you can initialize then and use the empty space still on them. This can also fix some error, and I don't know why.

Many errors surface soon after you install new hardware or software because conflicts often occur between the new product and previously installed components. To put an end to such messages, you might be able to uninstall the program or hardware (and hardware drivers) and then restart your computer to an errorless state.
If you do find that removing a new product eliminates errors, you might have to do some research to figure out the source of the conflict before you can reinstall the new product. Check the manufacturer's Web site for updated drivers, search support areas for known conflicts, and contact technical support for assistance. Sometimes tech support gurus can help you tweak a setting to end software conflicts.
Let it finish. Developing new computing habits can also limit the number of error messages you see. When you first start up your PC, let the hard drive come to a complete stop before starting a task; this lets your computer load all necessary drivers and operating system components necessary for efficient and error-free operation. The same concept works for your other programs. Let each program start up or shut down completely before you move on to another job.
I had/have the same problem using L200 and SDHC memory card, called Samsung. Can't view certain pictures on camera or computer, camera freezes when viewing those certain pictures, green light flashing.
Samsung support told me that I needed to copy my (good) pictures to a computer first because a memory format will erase everything. Then format (menu->settings->format->yes) my memory card. Tried this just now and took some new pictures, so far so good.
Your best bet is to use the built-in File Browser. It has 2 panes: 1 is a directory tree and the other is a thumbnail view of folder contents. I know Photoshop has this and would expect that Publisher has the same. So instead of going to File>Open, use the File Browser which is usually located near the top right-hand side of the toolbar within the application. Double-click a thumbnail to open the file.
There might be a special command within the application or a Windows registry setting that would enable a default thumbnail view in the Open dialog box, but I don't know of one off hand.
I have seen this problem with generic SD memory cards so it could be a faulty memory stick. Try to get a replacement. If you want to try to recover the pictures you have taken, I suggest Zero Assumption Recovery (Google for it). Check to see if it is compatible with your camera before downloading.
The problem is an incompatibility between Photoshop and Sony JPEG files. (I thought JPEG was supposed to be a standard!)
A simple workaround is to use the PictureGear program supplied by Sony. Use its File – Process command to save the Photoshop frames to the CD-R. It is also useful to ensure that the frames are resized to 1600x1200, 1024, 640 etc to eliminate the black border that would otherwise be displayed by the camera. This “feature” can be useful however if you have frames that have important sections at the edge of the frame. This would often be lost when displaying on a TV. Save the frame as, say, 1520 x 1140 and you will always see the full picture!
Another possible advantage is to use achieve greater JPEG compression. The CD1000 will accept PictureGear at the largest filesize (10) but one can use compression 8 or even less and get many more frames on a disk. There is a little loss of quality but much less than resizing down to a smaller image size.
I would guess that the above will also apply to memory stick.
