I have a Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-P32 digital camera, and a 256mb LEXAR
Media memory stick. When I try to copy the pictures off of the camera
onto my computer, I get an error saying something like "File Read
Error" Does anyone know what this is caused by? Also, when I try to
view the pictures on my camera, it freezes. Is there some free
program that i can download to get the pictures off of the camera?
They are very important.

Two things come to mind that need clarifying first.
1. You say - "I get an error saying something like" - it would help if you
posted exactly what it says.
2. You didn't specify as to whether the camera is new or not. If it is new,
did you install the software that came with the camera correctly?
And no, all cameras have unique software supplied with them - have you
checked the Sony website for a possible upgrade?

1. I cant exactly remember what it said, it was on my bro’s cpu,
and, actually im pretty sure it sed "File Sector Error" I think it is
something wrong with the memory stick.

2. It is a yr. old, and I was using windows explorer, not the software
that cam e with it.

3. No, there are some programs that can do digital photo recovery, I
have found them, but they cost money, and I want a free version. The
demos showed the pictures, but won’t let me copy them to my cpu.

P.S. I’ll try copying again tomorrow, and see if the same error
comes up.

As I understand your problem, you are attempting to download photo
files while the memory stick is in the P32. The camera's interface
might be at fault or the memory stick is at fault. Therefore, isolate
the memory stick from the camera.

Remove the memory stick and try it in a friend's SONY camera or in
some memory stick reader, such as at the local CVS/Walgreen drug
store. If another camera can read the memory stick (display on its
LCD screen) or if the photo files can be read by a store's memory
stick reading device, then the camera is at fault, not the memory
stick.

Also, you might want to try another memory stick in your P32 camera.

Since the playback freezes, I suspect that the memory stick is faulty,
rather than your camera. But that is just a guess.

Good luck.
