    I've used over 100 of these discs and they worked fine (Sony CD-R 200MB). I get the error message even when no disc is in the camera.



    Does this mean I need to buy an assortment of discs ($$$) to see which works, if any?



    How about throwing it on a hard surface?

  • dnkeesling May 17, 2009

    The picture of how to move the lens did not come through.



    I was able to move the lens in the manner you described...no help.



    "Disc Error" flashes even when no disc.



    I'm not able to get by the disc error and the camera will not function at all.



    I understand Sony quit making the Mavica some time ago but I was able to find this one new in the box. It has not been used that much.



    I found some Memorex discs.....they won't work either.

  • dnkeesling May 17, 2009

    With the disc cover open it only displays "cover open".



    But when the disc cover is closed, with no disc, "disc error" is back.

    Thanks for your efforts. I purchased this camera on November of 2008. We'll see if Sony honors its one year warranty.

Hi,
C:13:01 error code in Sony MVC-CD500 is disk error and this code comes when non-compatible disk is used as recording media in camera, below is service manual description of that error code..
"The type of CD-R/RW disk that cannot be used by this machine, is inserted".
Try another type / brand disk in camera.

Hit "add a comment" button for further query / info.
Thanks.

    Thanks for update.
    Please eject disk cover and slide optical lens block towards outer side and leave it in middle position and try again.
    In my opinion, optical lens block is stuck for some reason and causing that error. Please avoid to touch optical lens surface that will put finger prints on it.
    Thanks.

    OK, power up camera with open disc cover and check does it still give disc-error?
    Also clean optical lens with good quality cotton bud gently.
    Thanks.

    Thanks for update.
    Seems camera got problem in electronic circuit and it is not related with optical block mechanism, camera needs qualified camera tech to inspect its circuits physically.
    Thanks.

Can you record straight to your computer from a Sony CD Mavica MVC CD500? We want to bypass using a mini dvd.


No, the CD500 will only record onto a Sony Memory Stick or CD sorry.

Mavica mvc-300 disc error c:13:01


I have had similar problem and i think it's a problem with the disc. Make sure the disk is clean and unscratched. Check your other discs, too, to see if they are giving you the same problem. If not, it' is most likely the disc and not the camera.

It comes that Disk not being recognized. I had the same camera before. You need to use good quality CDRs or CD-RWs. Usually Sony Mavica disks best with that camera. Maybe you cannot find Mavica in market then go for Sony, Philips, Imation miniCDR/W. also keep the lens of the internal CD writer clean. If you need further assistance please post your question

Good Luck
