Question about Sony Mavica MVC-CD400 Digital Camera
Hello. I used a non-Mavica re-writable disk. Everything was ok until I was about to format the disk for another writing session. I usually erase the disks in my computer first and then format them with the camera. It worked well until now. Only this time when I tried to format, the battery didn't last until the end of the process so when I turned it on again and tried, I got a disk error (C:13:01 again). Do I have any chance of reviving my cd or do I have to buy a new one? (Doesn't sound like a big deal, I know, but I have to order it via internet so I'd like to save time...) I used Nero Burning Rom 6 to erase the cd.
1. cleaning the laser lens with isopropilic alcohol and q-tip
2. Try the reset button on the bottom of the camera. Tilt your camera and look below the LCD Display Backlight button on the bottom edge of the curved portion of the camera. You will need a paperclip or tip of a ball point pen to push the recessed little button. Place the camera on a level surface and try again. We find that the camera is very sensitive to tilting, as it gets older.
3. Make sure you format format at was FAT not fat32
4. All you need to do is "Quick format" the disk with the CAMERA rather than the memry stick plugged into the computer drive.
5. For sony error c:1301 using mini cd's: there is a program that recovers data from cd's that works with disk that have this error. It called "cdroller" Homepage is : www.cdroller.com
6. just take the memory stick off and re-insert it lot of times.. just keep doing it.

This is a common problem with the Mavica FD95. There is a little switch in the drive slot to sense the write protect tab on the disk.
If you hold open the drive door without a disk in, you should see this switch where the write protect tab goes. Try operating the switch with a matchstick a few dozen times to attemp to clean the contacts. If that doesn't work then Very carefully let a drop of switch cleaner run into the switch and try operating it a few times then let it dry. Failing that you might want to open the camera to get to the terminals on the switch and test it with a multimeter.
If the switch is faulty and a replacement is not availble then you could just short(or disconnect) it to fool the drive into thinking any disk is writable.
