    My memory stick is saying "file error" and I tried going in to the camera menu, clicking format, and ok, however, the option is to erase everything on the memory stick. I would like to recover the pictures that show file error. Are there any options in order to correct the error and get the pictures back?

When you turn on the camera, message Memory stick error appears. Camera works fine with internal memory but not when using sony memory stick PRO DUO


Hi,
Try to format memory stick through camera menu to solve this problem and if camera wont allow to format then try/ replace memory stick as this PRO DUO could be defective.
If another memory stick gives same problem then memory stick slot connectors could be bad and visual check by local camera repair shop is required.
Thanks.

My FujiFilm FinePix F47 fd has an error message that keeps saying 'Read Error' Help Please!!!


Hi,

The Read Error message displayed on the Camera when accessing the images which was not recorded correctly. This may also happen when the Memory Stick is corrupted to record or read the files. Please check if the message is displaying when accessing all the images. If it happens with all the images, then it may be an issue with the Camera or the Memory Stick.
To check if the issue is with the Memory Stick, try using a different Memory Stick and check if the message displays.This may also happen when an attempt was made to play back the image or the movie that was not recorded on this camera.
Try to wipe the contact area on the Memory Card with a soft, dry cloth. It may be necessary to format the Memory Card (Format option is available in the Setup 2 Menu of the Camera). If the message still appears, service may be required.

I have format error on my cybershot camera. I need to access photoc on camera


Hi,

The Camera may display the 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. The maximum supported capacity and media used is Memory Stick Pro Duo with 1 or 2 GB.
If you've already captured the images in the Camera and the error message displays, then try to open different images captured in the Camera and check if the message appears for all the images.
If this happens with all the images, then remove and reinsert the MS (Memory Stick) in the Camera and check if it works. You may also try cleaning the MS terminals and also check if the Internal Memory of the Camera displays the error. If the issue persists, then insert the MS in the Computer slot and transfer all the images to the Computer. If the images appear normally in the Computer, then Format the media in the Camera. To Format the Memory Stick, select the Format option in the Memory Stick Tool Menu of the Camera. (Menu-->Setup-->Memory Stick Tool-->Format)
Formatting the MS will delete all the files saved.

Formatting the MS should resolve the issue.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Internal memory formatting error to sony DSC-T2 camera error c:13:01


Hi,

In DSCT2 Camera, the C:13:01 error message indicates a Self diagnostic message. This message can be clearly identified by the help of a Sony Authorized service technician. Each of these codes indicates the symptoms and resolutions of the Camera. In C:13:01, the issue is with the Internal Memory or with the Memory Stick.

The Symptoms are:

1. Format error with the Internal Memory which can be corrected by formatting the Internal Memory.

2. Unformatted "Memory Stick Duo" which can be resolved by formatting the MS in the Camera.

3. "Memory Stick Duo" is broken or not compatible which can be resolved by inserting a new compatible MS.

4. There may be an issue with the Hardware part also, which can be resolved by the technicians.


Try turning the power off and on again, or taking out and inserting the "Memory Stick Duo" several times may also help in resolving the issue.

Thanks.

13:01 error


Hi,

The C:13:01 error code indicates the issue with the Media used in the Camera.

This may be due to the:
Format Error of the Internal Memory.
Un-formatted Memory Stick Duo.
Broken Memory Stick Duo.
Memory Stick Duo type error.
When the Camera cannot Read or Write the data in the Memory Stick Duo.

This can be resolved by Formatting the Internal Memory and Memory Stick Duo.
If not resolved, try inserting a new Memory Stick Duo which is supported.
Try power resetting, remove and reinsert the Memory Stick etc.

This will resolve the issue, if not the Camera may require service.

Format Error in Sony Cybershot


i think this problem arises when you fail to regularly format the card ie. take lots of pictures and delete some and repeat the process over and over instead of downloading every session and formatting the card causing coruption. Also if you've bought pro duo memory stick off ebay poss. its a very good forgery (again i've been caught out by this).
