The Sony uses a database on the card so you can't just delete images from the 
card. I always reformat the card when I want to clear it. Many newer cameras 
are using exFAT. Some are FAT32.

Can you access the files via USB cable connected to the camera? If the camera 
can see the files then it may be able to make them available by using the 
camera as a removable storage device on Windoes.
