Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet
The best way to clean the contacts on computer memory sticks is to use an eraser.The contacts on memory sticks get tarnished after being exposed to the elements especially inside a computer where theirs a lot of air flow happening so cleaning them with a pencil eraser will restore the contacts to allow good contact between the stick and the memory slot.This also works for any electronic equipment that utilizes flat male/female connectors like in tvs,garage door openers.Make sure that only the eraser comes in contact with the connections and be careful that you do not hit any of the smd(surface mount devices)located on the board.If your not comfortable using a pencil eraser you can get the same results by using just an eraser itself.I would recommend that if your using a pencil eraser that it be a brand new pencil,do not use a pencil whose eraser has been worn down,due to the erasers metal holder which if not careful can scratch and/or damage the piece being cleaned.This also applies to Laptop memory.Thanks and Enjoy

This may sound lik an odd solution, but first try this, first:
Make sure the card is inserted properly, use the camera's Format Utility; instead of the computer (Always Use The Camera, with Sony).
Using a pencil eraser (new/clean) gently rub the contacts with the eraser, and use a dry and lint free cloth to wipe any shavings of (don't blow it off with your mouth)..
If the error still presents, try inserting and removing as many as 10 times or more (the contacts, both inside the camera and on the card may have a film on them) to both align and clean the contacts against one another.
I said it sounds odd but here's where Sonystyle.com says it too:
DCS-P200 error code 13:xx (all 13 code errors are memory stick related)....
