Samsung PL50 with Samsung 2GB memory card says 'memory full' even though I've cleared down the memory via my laptop.


Have you actually formatted the card in the camera ? Just copying the photos does not remove them from the card

My anti-virus accidentally deleted the folder to access my photos frm my sony a330..how can i access my photos now or retrieve the folder? every time i created a new folder or open it, it says empty.


It's not necessarily your anti-virus. Did you format your memory card in your camera when you first got it (as Sony recommends)? If not, the card will work temporarily, but the file structure will inevitably corrupt as pictures are added and deleted. Recommend first trying to download your photos using a USB card reader. If that doesn't work, your next step would be to try recovery software with the card reader and memory card. Here's a YouTube video of your freeware options, and here's more info on how to use them, and where to get them. After you've recovered your photos to your computer, format the card in your camera using the camera's format feature in its menus.

Installed 16gb sd memory stick. took 1682 pics and the first 1000 "disappeared".How do I retrieve them?


Did you format the card in your camera before you started taking pictures? If not, that's why this happend as the file structure was not setup. But no sweat. First you'll need to recover your lost photos, and also save/backup all of your photos onto your computer. You'll likely need to use recovery software. Here's some very good freeware. Now AFTER you've saved all your photos onto your computer, format the card in your camera to rejuvenate it, and properly setup the file/folder structure to prevent this from happening again. Note that this will erase the card, so only do this after you've saved/recovered all the photos onto your computer.

I deleted my pictures by accident on my sony digital camera and i was wondering if i can get them back?


Take no more pics until you've recovered your photos, take the card out of the camera. This is to reduce the chance of you overwriting some of your "lost" photos. There are many good freeware photo recovery software options that may help you recover your photos. This article reviews and outlines several of the better ones:

I have sony cybershot model DSC-HX5.one fine day i click many photos of my friend party then later when i came home inserted the memory card in my laptop and go to see there are no photos found in the...


Vikram, first of all take no more pictures with the memory card. You'll need to use recovery software to recover your photos. There are very many freeware options for your to choose (here's a short listing with reviews). You'll need to use your computer's card reader with this software. Now AFTER you've recovered your photo's, you'll need to initialize (format) the card in your camera (DON'T use your computer to initialize the card). This will erase the card, but it will also help prevent this instance from reoccurring. Look in your camera's menus for the format option.
