Format error is a problem with the memory card.

Try using a card reader and a computer to recover the files inside the card, saving them on the computer.
When you have finished try formatting the memory stick or replace it with a new one.
If you still get the error with a newly formatted memory stick, then that is a faulty mainboard inside the camera, but this is not common.
Usually you fix C:13:01 just formatting or replacing the memory card.

How to recover deleted photos?


Simply put, chances of recovery can be high as long as you act as soon as possible and stop using the Samsung digital camera to take more photos or videos, also keep the camera memory card in good shape (no physical damage).

Then you can rely on a digital camera data recovery software to get the job done and retrieve your photos. Here shows a list of good ones (for PC/Mac) http://www.digital-camera-recovery.com/

You'll need to connect the camera (mass memory card) to your computer. Then install the program to start scan & recover your files. Should be easy to get back your lost memories!

Please take out memory stick from camera and power up camera and check still gives format error?
If no further error then put memory stick back in camera and press Menu >> Format >> OK to format memory stick. That will delete all data on memory stick and refresh it for new photos.

Deleted pictures


to delete photos, you had to have hit 'format' or 'delete'. Changing settings won't do it. IF they are deleted, they're gone. You can't un-delete photos on a camera.
