Having problems with your Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S730 Digital Camera ?

How do I delete pics in a protected file on my sony camera

Answers :

\015\012There are two ways to delete the protected files.
\015\012 1. Formatting the internal memory or "Memory Stick Duo" erases all data stored on the recording media, even if the images are protected, and these images can not be restored.
\015\012 2. Just select the protected sign (key) to turn it to gray from green. Then press OK button shown in the below figure. The center button is OK. If you press again, it turns to green to protect your file. Press again to unprotect it.
\015\012That is all.
\015\012 I hope this helpful.
As I don't have a Sony, I can't walk you through the steps, but I can tell you what to do. You're going to have to go into your camera menu to unlock the pictures. Refer to your manual, and look for the steps to lock, unlock, protect your pictures, then follow the steps. If you don't have your manual, you can often download them for free, just google "Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S730 Digital Camera Manual" and you will find the options. Some sites charge, but some are free .pdf downloads- look for those. Hope these hints help, and good luck!

How do I recover deleted / overwritten movie files from our Sony DCR-SR85E? We used the 60GB space available and then saved movie files onto an external pc hard drive which has been lost by a DVD conversion provider we engaged. We have also recorded additional movie files on the same Sony Video Camera Recorder and it is nearing memory capacity. Is there a forensic method available to retrieve our original deleted / overwritten files and what is the best option available? Thank you in advance.
