Do both systems run XP? Also, check the driver files on your PC, and test it with another card of the same make. Is the write-protection switch set to on? Test the card reader with other formats of cards, if it is a multiple reader, just to make sure that it is functioning at all.

How to Fix a PSP Memory Stick
your PSP's Firmware (its operating system) before doing anything else.
Firmware 5.0 solves many software problems that are encountered with
older memory sticks. You can upgrade it by simply connecting your PSP

saved files. If so, continue to the next step. If you still cannot see
your files, then your memory stick is defective, and it is not the

Format it with your PSP not your PC, you pc will read the format from your psp but not vice versa because you are probably formatting it NTFS and not FAT16 or FAT32, the psp has its own way o formatting it. Thanks
I had the same problem. I bought a 2 gig memory pro-duo with the adapter and it gave me that error even though it fit just fine. I then tried a 512 memory stick and a 1 gig memory stick and neither one worked it gave me the C:13:01 error code. So I found out the hard way that the camera will not read it. The Sony DSC-S85 will not take memory above a 128. Try the Lexar 64MB memory stick. I just bought 4 and they work perfectly fine.
