Please take out memory stick from camera by opening battery compartment and put it back. Power up camera and press Menu and go to Format option and select Format and OK.
If still no joy after formatting memory stick then it looks defective, buy new memory stick.

Take off the SD card and try to copy from other SD reader with connected at PC; if this isn't work, then you should try formatting the card. If that doesn`t help, it looks like the card is faulty.

Its possible that you lost the pics in there.

Sony dsc-s730 format error


Download the pics to your computer using a separate memory card reader. Then, format the card in the camera.

Camera to pc


You don't need any software.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or, despite what I said first, you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.
