Hi,
Format error means memory card in camera is unstable and need to be formatted. You will lose all data/ files on memory card after format.
Format option is available in camera Menu.
This will solve your format error problem in camera.

Format error on my sony cybershot dsc-s730


Format error comes because memory stick has an error. Please format memory stick by going in to Menu>> format>>OK

If error still comes then memory stick is bad and need to be replaced with new one.

I connect my dsc-s730 to my pc and i get a message saying 'you need to format the disk in drive f before you can use it' then when i press format it says 'windows cannot format etc'


Please take out memory stick from camera by opening battery compartment and put it back. Power up camera and press Menu and go to Format option and select Format and OK.
If still no joy after formatting memory stick then it looks defective, buy new memory stick.
