I have a Sony DSC-H1 camera and have recently removed photos from it's memory card - the same way that I've always done it before without any troubles. Now, when I put in the memory stick and turn on the camera, the screen shows "no file in this folder" and won't go any further. I've tried to go through the menu and reformat the memory stick but it didn't make any difference. What do I need to do to continue to use this memory stick?

Invalid File... Hi, everyone... Recently, it's happening the following error when I try to download the photos from the camera to the computer: Error reading DSCxxxx.JPG: Invalid Parameters.

Even formatting or replacing the card, the error remains. Does anyone know what this error means ? Tks a lot !!!

I have a Canon HG10 Video Camcorder, however I can't figure out how to transfer the actual video files to the computer to be edited by programs. It is a hard drive camcorder meaning that all the information is on a onboard hard drive on the camcorder itself, the manual tells you how to transfer pictures and how to "back up video files to the computer" but the files are not viewable on the computer and must be "transfered back" to the camcorder to be watched... help.
