There is already an active thread on the subject of corrupt memory cards, and how to recover the pictures. Here is a link to that thread:
Anytime you put a new memory card in a camera, you must, must, must format that card using the camera.
This conditions the card to match the camera.
Failure to do that, is like setting a time-bomb.
Using a card reader (like the one on your printer) is OK. But never format the card from the computer. Only format the card using the camera.
Hi, I have a Sony DSC W100 camera. After I have downloaded the pics to my computer I find that I can't open some of them again. The message is "drawing failed". The picture is there on the computer, but opens with a blank or a partial picture.
I also had the same problem with my previous camera (also a Sony). Does anyone know what the problem is? Is it a Sony problem, or is it something that I am missing?
I usually download the pics by using the memory stick slot on my HP Photosmart 7960 printer.
I was told that the stick on my old Sony camera was "bad" so I bought a new one, but it didn't improve things much.
Another suggestion was that Windows XP causes the problem, but no suggestions as to what to do.
Any help would be appreciated
