Re: disk error

Hello anuhera, This is a very common problem with the cd400 camera, I have learned the hard way that Sony's recommendation to use their [expensive] media was more than just self interest. There are a lot of quality issues with CD media. As my camera has aged it is more and more intolerant of off-brand media. This is true even though I have not shot more than a 1000 images with the camera. While I can plan on getting the c:13:01 error with unbranded disks, I can still use the Sony disks without much if any problem. To get your pictures back, go to and download their recovery software, worked great for me. Let me know if you need any additional info. Best regards, nightdiver

My sony mavica won't load on win 7 mvc-cd400

MVC-CD400 is too old for Windows 7 operating system. This camera works only with Windows XP and Vista.
Check Sony Support after some time (months) for any driver update, if Sony release it.

Disk Error

I don't know a direct "solution," but you should be able to USB your images from the unfinalized CD to your pc.

Sony MVC-FD75

Not good, you will need a replacement floppy drive for the camera. It is a common failure point on the Mavica series. Sorry, no easy fix

Mavica MVC CD400 where'd the pics go?

The biggest cause of not being able to read the disk is it hasn't been finalized. To use them anywhere else but in the camera the disk must be finalised first before removing it from the camera. There have also been a number of faulty units which suffer from writing problems.
