Having problems with your Sony Cybershot DSC-S950 Digital Camera ?

I have the sony s950 camera with 2gb san disk stick. I have managed to take plenty of pictures in it, but when i try to turn it off and turn it on again, it keeps asking to reinset memory stick. i try to insert the memory stick to the computer but it wont read it. the pictures are still on the memory stick but we cannot view it. Is there a way to recover the files on the memory stick?

Answers :

You can recover pictures from camera with asoftech photo recovery program.

You have to use a card reader either on your computer or an external USB card reader. Put the card in the card reader, open the recovery program, then select the drive where files are deleted, then press "Start" and wait for it to do it's magic.
Your memory stick may corrupt. Try some photo recovery software to rescue the pictures first, here are some for your option.
