First question -- did you already format the card? If yes, then follow this: Occasionally, but not often, the memory cards will become "zapped," and they will not function. Have you tried reading from the same card on another device? (e.g. computer). Did you check to be sure the card's "write protect" tab was not engaged? If it is, move it back to "unprotected" status. At the very least, try a different card.

If still no results, refer to page 54 of the user manual. You can see it online here: http://gdlp01.c-wss.com/gds/5/0300004195/01/PSSX30IS_CUG_EN.pdf

If you haven't formatted the card, then you need to select 'MENU' and do a low-level format on the card.

Good luck! :)

Hi - I am getting an error message when i switch on my Sony Cybershot dsc t9 saying access and then it flashes format error C13.01 - can you advise how to resolve?


It might be due to a bad contact of the placed memorycard.

1. Pull the memorycard out and in the camera several times and retry.
2. If not OK, format the card in the camera. If that does not work, format it in the computer.
3. Try another memorycard and recheck.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W370 says reinsert memory card. We have reinsert the card correctly but it continues to say that. Is the camera beyond repair?


you'll make sure that you camera is not the problem is when you insert other memory card that is working on other cameras. if that doesn't work at all try to look for any foreign object that block memory card insertion contacts or you can buy a contact cleaner spray for electronic parts and spray it on the memory card holder part of the camera.

When I switch it on, I get this error: Memory Stick error C 13:01 camera Sony cyber shot DSC-P73


Hello and Welcome to Fixya
C:13:01 memory stick error message indicates a Self diagnostic message.In C:13:01 the issue may be with the Internal Memory or with the Memory Stick.
To solve it try the following solutions

Format error with the Internal Memory which can be corrected by formatting the Internal Memory.
If it is issue with memory stick then turning the power off and on again or taking out and inserting the "Memory Stick" several times may help in resolving the issue. Error may be because of Unformatted "Memory Stick" which can be resolved by formatting the Memory Stick in the Camera If it not remove by formatting in the camera then connect it to PC and tried to format it again but either FAT instead of FAT32 which is the regular format and then reinserted the memory stick and formatted it with the camara. Now it will be solved if it still exist then it means Memory Stick is broken or not compatible which can be resolved by inserting a new compatible Memory stick
I hope it will help you
Your Rating as Four Thumbs which are given below to this solution will appreciate me
Thanks

I have Sony DSC H7 camera and when i insert my Scan Disk 4GB memory card it gives me error as "Re-insert memory stck", please advice


Hi,
Your Sony camera is designed to use only memory stick PRO DUO with maximum memory 8 GB. It will not accept other memory cards. If you have been use memory stick pro duo and still request you to re-insert card. Remove your card and re-insert firmly. Regards

When I put the memory card in and turn on the camera, it keeps saying memory card error.


Hi,

If camera show Memory Card Error, Check whether the card is inserted properly or not. For SD card, check out the card lock switch is in the correct position and not stuck in between.

You can Format the memory card in the camera using the Setup Menu option (Format). Please be aware that formatting the memory card will remove any images currently stored on the card along with any other data.

If after formatting the card do not clear the error, try another memory card. If this occurs with only the one card it is likely that the memory card is defective, if the error persists over more than one card the camera may require service.

Rating the solution is highly appriciated...Good Luck

Memory card error


Take the card out of the camera, and re-insert it. See if you get the same error. If so, it has likely been corrupted. Reformatting it may correct the error, but you will lose whatever was on it, unfortunately.

(Also, if you have another reader, like what most PC's have on the front of them, give it a shot - there's a chance it's the camera, and not the card.

Cheers

You can take out the memory card from camera and then download a memory card recovery software to recover photos from memory card, you can refer to this tutorial that helped me before
http://www.asoftech.com/articles/how-to-recover-lost-photos-from-memory-card.html


If needed, you may do a quick format of the memory card and then use asoftech data recovery to recover your files.

Memory stick error


Try using another memory stick, or insert a confirmed good memory stick, if OK, the memory stick is defective, if the same error, try pressing reset at the back of camera, a small hole beside the the DC jack. if OK, then fine, if still the same, camera needs repair. thanks
