My camera says the memory card is locked and memory card error appears when I turn on the camera. I've read that I have to format the card, but won't the photos be destroyed? How can I get my pictures


There is a tab on the memory card so you will you need to remove it from the camera and change the position of this tab to "unlock" it. DO NOT format the card until you've BACKED UP your files from it (typically to a PC or USB drive (stick or external hard drive).

Hi - I am getting an error message when i switch on my Sony Cybershot dsc t9 saying access and then it flashes format error C13.01 - can you advise how to resolve?


It might be due to a bad contact of the placed memorycard.

1. Pull the memorycard out and in the camera several times and retry.
2. If not OK, format the card in the camera. If that does not work, format it in the computer.
3. Try another memorycard and recheck.

    When I turn my Camcorder on it says "Format Error please format"and E:31:00 flashes on the right hand side of the screen.


    The memory card may be corrupted. you have to format the card. you can do formatting using the camera and the option is in the setup menu. Otherwise connect the camera to computer and format as fat32. If unable to complete the format your card is damaged and have to buy a new one.

    Card Error


    Are you getting this error with the card?

    If so, insert the card into the computer. Make sure you get all the files off before you continue. Then go to my computer, right click on the drive, click properties, click the tools tab and click check now. Just do Automatically fix file system errors and click start. This should successfully find errors if present on the card and fix it. You may lose a picture or two if you don't transfer all of them first. Or you could format the card by right clicking on the card drive and clicking format.

    If you get the error on the camera without the card in it, turn it on and click mode button twice to get to the picture display (it should be a black screen with "memory error" on top). Then press menu and use the 4-way button to go to the right for Setup. Then use the 4-way button to go down to format to format the camera.

    This should fix it.

    Warning in memory "FORMAT ERROR"


    You could try to re-format the stick. Some cameras are a bit picky when it comes to formatting. Often they will not work unless formatted directly on the camera. You could also try formatting it under widows if you have a card reader. This may kick it into life.
