Memory card problems on my sony cybershot

\015 My camera keeps giving me this message "Please re-insert the memory stick"on my sony cybershot.I've taken it to several photo specialty places. Is there anything else that I can do to save the pictures on my memory card. I just spent a few weeks in Italy, and I do not want to lose those pictures.\015

Answers :

Have you tried this memory card on your computer?
\012 If this memory card can be read functionally on your computer, you'd better copy off all your stored photos to another memory card or drive and format this card immediately to check whether it can still be read on your camera.
\012 But, if this card unfortunately also gets the same error on your computer, you'd better try to apply a memory card photo recovery freeware to get all your stored photos back successfully for free:

\012 In fact, this freeware helped a lot as the external hard drive of my friend was mistakenly formatted. It finally restored all the needed data of my friend. It always works well on both of a memory card and a hard drive. So, I believe it will also help you a lot.
\012 Try to read more information of this freeware here:

\012 After experiencing these troubles, I hope you can learn a valuable lesson to back up everything important well at least on two memory cards or hard drives all the time.
Try some photo recovery software to rescue the files on your digital memory card, here are some for your options.
