Try formatting memory card as different devices allocate admin files in order to manage your photo files. That should fix ur problem.

Hi,
The camera may display a MEMORY STICK ERROR or C:13:xx message (xx can be any random number) on the LCD screen for the following reasons:
IMPORTANT: If model-specific information is required to complete any of the steps in this solution, refer to the operating instructions supplied with the product. Manuals are available online in the Manuals/Specs/Warranty section of the Sony® eSupport Web site.
  1. Remove and re-insert the Memory Stick® media several times.
  2. The inserted Memory Stick media is not compatible with the camera. Check your instruction manual for information regarding Memory Stick media compatibility.
  3. The inserted Memory Stick media is not formatted. Format the Memory Stick media using the FORMAT option in the camera menu. WARNING: There is a risk of data loss. Formatting will erase all stored data, images, movies, etc., from the Memory Stick media.
  4. The terminals on the Memory Stick media are dirty. Remove the Memory Stick media from the camera and use a soft dry cloth or pencil eraser to clean the contacts. Make sure there are no residual particles on the Memory Stick media before re-inserting it into the camera.
  5. The data on the Memory Stick media or the Memory Stick media itself is damaged. Try using a different Memory Stick media in the camera.

Thanks

My 8gb memory stick only reads 4gb


click start control panel administrative tools computer management disk management right click on your drive select properties click tools you should see click check now click start two boxes

automatically fix files and scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors place then a tick in both boxes then select check now start

you might tick one box then return after its finished the first repair then return and tick the second box you should not do anything while the chkdsk utility is in progress any input may damage this drive

I found that you get best results by ticking one box then returning after it has finished then tick the other box

if still no joy


Right click on usb drive select properties you will have an array of options


Select the hardware option then select your drive properties policies

restore defaults


In XP


Right click on your drive select properties then on customize restore Default in W 7

If you need more help with this post a reply

hope this helps you

Says error on formatting memory card.


Hi,
The camera may display a FORMAT ERROR if the inserted media is not formatted or if the media was formatted on a computer. This error may also display if the inserted media is not supported by the camera.
Try to remove and re-insert the Memory Stick media several times.
Make sure that the inserted Memory Stick media is compatible with the camera. DSCW310 Camera is compatible with the Memory Stick Pro Duo upto 32 GB.
You may also try formatting the Memory Stick media to resolve the issue. Format the Memory Stick media using the FORMAT option in the camera menu.
Formatting will erase all stored data, images, movies, etc., from the Memory Stick media. FORMAT option is available in the Memory Card Tool Menu of the Camera which is in the Settings Menu. Please back up the data by inserting the Memory Stick in the Computer Memory Card slot.
This may also happen if the terminals on the Memory Stick media are dirty. Remove the Memory Stick media from the camera and use a soft dry cloth or pencil eraser to clean the contacts. Make sure there are no residual particles on the Memory Stick media before re-inserting it into the camera.
The data on the Memory Stick media or the Memory Stick media itself is damaged. Try using a different Memory Stick media in the camera.
This should resolve the issue. If the error continues to display, the media may need to be replaced or the camera may require service.

8g sd card doesnt work on jvc camcorder...it says card error


Each camera have maximum memory card to be readable. If the memory capacity is to high from the limit, the camera will hard to write the data inside the card and said that "card error".
Try to insert memory card with lower capacity (4 or 2 GB) and read the user manual to know optimum memory card for your device.

Hope this help and RATE please !

Camera can no longer read the Sony 16G Memory Stick Pro Duo


Sorry but it sounds like the card is pootched. Very common problem with these sticks. Best bet is to get multiple 2gb sticks to ensure that when one goes (and one will) you won't lose all of your pics

Format error in a new dsc-s780. Formatting the 8G card does not solve the problem


I am not sure that it accepts 8gb cards

but at least try this:-
If you have a computer with a memory card reader that takes the stick. insert it into the computer and goto my computer find the memory stick drive letter and format it there then retry the stick in the camera. if you cannot format the stick it is very possible it is bad.

I put a 8g card in and it wont read it.


The card is to big to be read by the player. The highest amount that the memory card reader on the mp3 player can read is 2gb. So you will need something smaller for the player to read it up to a 2gb memory stick. Anything more cant be read as it is too much for the player.
