I have a Sony Mavica CD400 mini disc digital camera. it is giving me disc error messages with every disc I try in it. C:13:01 was the message I got. It also gave me a drive error at one point. When it first comes on I get "repairing data" then it goes to the disc error message. Does this have anything to do with the laser lens and can it be adjusted?

I think you have to Finalize the disc before you put it into your computer. After you save all the pictures to your computer, if it's a CD-RW, you can format it -which will erase all pictures on the disc. Then you can use it over and over again. If you haven't already bought a bunch of cheep CD-R discs, I recommend getting a package of 3 or 4 CD-RW discs instead. They are more expensive but they last longer and you can be way more organized with them. I hope this helps.
Here is a link that really helped me out with my Mavica,
A few times over the last several years, having shot thousands of images with my CD-400, I discovered that VERY rarely a bump/jar, etc. can cause a bad write, or the same thing when finalizing. In the car with a friend one day, I was needing to finalize for him and got the message of death. That's the only thing I can offer; mine has worked like Sony intended.
Will the CD read in your computer? If so, try this freeware utility that has been recommended here in the forum. I downloaded it and actually had to use it last week on my memory stick. It WORKS!
Bob: the Mac will never show what is on the disk.....and you don't hgave to finalize either.
Do you have Image Capture on your units? If so, all you need to do is connect the camera via USB cable to the computer. The program will come on automatically (the camera has to be on), you can choose to download some or all of the pictures to a folder of your choice.
