Re: memory card error
Take a look inside your camera's CF card slot. I suspect that you may have a bent pin in there. If so, remove batteries and card. Use a small/skinny jeweler's flat screwdriver to bend the pin back as close as possible. The jeweler's screwdrivers that you see at the dollar store will work fine. Another tool that I sometimes use is a stiff wire with a bent hook on the end to get very flattened pins started. Take your time and use as much patience as you can muster (take a breather in between if needed).
It doesn't have to be perfect, just as close as you can get it. When it's the best that you can get it, take your flash card and "SLOWLY" insert it. The card itself should fine-align the pin. Remove the card, and verify that the pin is still straightened. If so, reinsert the card and try it out.

pull mem card, pull battery. wait 10 secs reinstall battery, turn on. if all is well, and just needs mem card, turn off, install card, turn back on. if you get the memory card error, throw away that mem card, anything else you put it in, might get damaged.
1. Change batteries, MEM Error/Card Error can also be that the card is FULL in which caseyou upload those precious shots to the PC, then delete them from the card ;-)
2. Look at the card. Does it have a small slideswitch on one side? If so, that is the WRITE safety, and should be marked (ON/OFF, WRITE/SAFE, LOCKED/UNLOCKED etc...) If there is one, and it is not marked, simply slide it to the opposite position. If I recall, most are slide DOWN toward the gold contacts to allow writing and you may have inadvertently caught that slideswitch on the edge of the MEM card slot or the camera body when pushing in in and moved it UP to LOCKED.
3. Get an eraser and CLEAN those gold contacts
4. But another card and see if it works(?) if not, you may have bad or bent contacts INSIDE the camera ((in the MEM slot) which will require a steady hand to fix.
i don't think you can transfer photos from mem stick to internal mem, but may i suggest purchasing a multi port card reader? it is a small device, compatible with most all mem cards- deff for Sony Cyber-shot- you simply insert your mem stick and plug into the USB port on your computer, this will also save unnecessary wear on your camera, They are fairly cheap, at around $15, no software is needed, your computer will recognize it as a mem stick, just as it does the camera
older cameras didn't support pro cards-if door where card goes in says memory stick anly and not pro you need to find PURPLE card that maxs out at 128mb and that's the only card you can use-hard to find-maybe staples or office depot sometimes or online-if door says mem stick pro try formating card through menu in camera-
If it says there is a memory card error it means there is a problem with the memory card or the capacity of the memory card is too much for the camera if u have tried using a diffrent memory card and the camera is compatible with it that says that the camera is defective
