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.

Try reformatting the disk in your computer before using it in the camera. Not a quick format, right click, format, start, thats all. Dont even give it a volume name or anything.

SOURCE: when a floppy disc is inserted it flashes disk

The floppy driver has an internal switch that detects when the floppy disk is protected or not.

It is likely such switch is damaged.

It is necessary to open the camera and the floppy drive to fix it.

If you have experience and skills in fixing electronic devices, or want to try it, then you can try its repair.

The alternative is to pay to have repaired, but is more likely that the quote you will receive is to replace the whole floppy drive, which costs around $40.00 plus the repair labor.

SOURCE: I use a 3.5

You need to format your discs in the camera. Not in any other camera. and certainly not in a PC. Some cameras do not like some discs. Have you changed the make you use?

DISC ERROR


This means the the floppy disk drive has dirty the reader/recorder heads, or the heads are misaligned, or the floppy has a mechanical problem during the reading process.

You can start in blowing compressed air inside the floppy disk.

If it does not work, then the floppy drive will need to be serviced or replaced.

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.

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.
