This is an early floppy drive model yes? Drive error could refer to corrupt floppy disc or a failure of the drive. Check the disc angle first - new disk formatted to camera. If it is not that - then buy another camera A repair I guess will not be an option -but checkout Sony first.

Have no manual. Got a Sony Digital Mavica 1.3 Megapixel Model NO FD-85 at a garage sale that is giving me a format error with disc in and memory disc in as well.

It just wants you to format them in the camera before using. If you go to the support section of the Sony website, you should be able to download a copy of the manual to your computer.

Mavica mvc-300 disc error c:13:01

I have had similar problem and i think it's a problem with the disc. Make sure the disk is clean and unscratched. Check your other discs, too, to see if they are giving you the same problem. If not, it' is most likely the disc and not the camera.

Trying to find out what code c:13:01

The problem has nothing to do with the type or quality of the formatting. It is directly related to the disk drive malignment pandemic of Sony Mavica cameras. It seems simple enough to fix, since I fixed my own. You need to unscrew and remove all the small black screws which go around the seam of the camera body (my model was a MVC FD90) Look for little black arrows indicating the screw locations (you need a precision philips screwdriver which can be purchased at the Home Depot for $5.00 under Husky brand name). After removing all screws, try the camera now and see if it works. If it does, then reinstall only 2 screws in any of the holes that appear perfectly aligned with the camera body (hole lines up perfectly between cover holes and camera body holes). Then try again to make sure it still works. If it still doesn't work, then carefully remove camera cover with caution not to damage wire ribbon connection both halves of camera body. Then simply reinstall top with bottom of camera halves. Next,install those 2 screws previously mentioned. Camera should work fine at that point, and floppy disks will now operate when inserted without error message or other malfunctions associated with drive misalignment.

Format Disc Error

Try a new preformatted disc, if this wont boot, your drive is stuffed, you may be able to format this disc in the camera but then it wont load in your computer, so its not much good, cost of repair will exceed cam value. dump it

Format error on a sony digital mvc-fd100

If the disks you are using are new, there is always a possibilty you got a bad batch or you got some that were not pre-formatted, or were formatted for an apple computer. I assume that there is some way to format a floppy disk with the camera. Try to do that and then see if the floppy is recognized.
