Hi guys, thanks to the reviews I read on this site I got a Sony DSC-P73 back around Christmas time. Awesome camera, convenient and fun to use... BUT! The other day I took a photo, then edited it in Photoshop and saved the .jpg file to my DCIM dir on the stick. Now I can't use the stick in the camera anymore! I also can't format it using the camera either. I'd like to try to take care of this without having to purchase a card reader. Does anyone know if this is possible or do I need to order a card reader?

Do the digital photo printing stations at Walmarts and the like allow you to browse the files on the card? Than I imagine I could just delete it there.

You should just be able to hook up the USB cable to the computer and delete the file through the computer or even format it that way...

Tried to but it doesn't seem to recognize the memory stick drive unless the camera recognizes it.

Anyone know if any of the retail stores like Walgreens or Walmart allow you to delete photos from your card? I went to CVS today and was able to access the photo on my memory card but not remove it.

I would find a buddy that has a reader, or pick this reader up from Buy.com for ~$15-20. I could be wrong, but I doubt you can remove pics on any of the in-store kiosks. They don't want to deal with the customer who will accidentally delete all of their photos and them try toblame it onthe stores "faulty"machine.
