The only issue I have is when removing/erasing pics from the camera...do I really have to erase them one-at-a-time?
Please tell me I missed something in the manual...
thanks,
manny

Not sure in your case , but with most Sony cameras you use the Wide angle on the zoom control while in playback mode to display the thumbnail pics then select delete and the camera will ask you if you wish to delete all in this folder ...

there should be a way you can select more than one, and if you are deleting the entire card, just select the FORMA CARD option and this will wide the memory

I'll give the wide-angle while in preview a try.
Formating the card seems a bit overkill?
I must be missing something...I have faith that Sonyhas provided this hidden option.

thanks

Formating is not overkill. Most recommend that you format memory cards prior to using it. This makes sure the card has the correct FAT info that the camera is looking for. It's also quick and painless.

Thanks rjseeney,
Formating media is the only way to remove multipleimages from my W50 MS-duo media.

found the following Sonyonline support: http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/mod....pl?mdl=DSCW50

Sigh .....

Assuming you didn't bother to read the "Read this first" manual/pdf ..

If you had bothered then.

Part 6 .. View/delete images

Read down to "To delete images in Index mode"

You could then go on to read "to delete all the images in the folder...select 'all in this folder' "

In other words exactly how I told you to do it in my first post ...

Exactly



Dont see how its over kill. Formating also maintain memory integrity within the card. I format my memory card after any drastic changes (e.g. large deletion)

Thanks Sintares,
You know SONYS

You have to admit the manual leaves much to be desired...

True enough , they really need to employ someone to actually write a manual that can be used by normal customers not camera experts.

Sony manuals and Sony software included with cameras are always a big disappointment.
