I have never had a problem retrieving pictures from my Olympus Stylus 730, I can open the memory card and drag the pictures to a folder on my computer without a problem. However, I cannot do this with video files. I can't even play them straight from the memory card folder on my computer (Dell PC). I tried opening them with Windows Media Player instead of Quicktime, the format they were in, and it allowed me to hear the audio but with no video. How can I convert these files so that they are read

File error very so often after clicking a few photographs the camera shows FILE ERROR . On the first review the camera displays the photograph there after the photos are lost. the only solution to the problem is to format the memory card after which it clicks a few photographs & then the same problem occurs. is it the problem of memory card or a problem with the camera


It could be either. There is not any way to tell, but if the problem is too bad I would replace the memory card first and then address the issue within the camera if it continues.\015\012\015\012David Millier\015\012Advance Camera Repair ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H5 Digital Camera
