I have a sony DSC-W180 camera and i cant upload my photos from my Sony MS-MT8G Memory stick. The computer only comes up with 8 shortcut folders that wont open when i connect it to a computer.
I am currently backpacking around europe with all my photos from my trip on my card and i cant get them off my memory stick!! If anyone could help me that would be great! Thanks

Try this 1.

After connecting it to your computer if the folders are appearing as shortcuts then

check whether the actual folders\files are not in hidden mode.

Click on "Start" -->Run-->type cmd and click on OK.

Here I assume your memory stick drive letter as G:

Enter this command.

attrib -h -r -s /s /d g:\*.*

Note : Replace the letter g with your memory stick drive letter .

Now check for your files in memory stick drive letter .

After that, download the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from the below link


Update it --> Perform "Full Scan"

Note : Default selected option is "Quick Scan".

Good Luck.
