How do I format the memory stick for my DSC-S85?


On page 96 of the manual:
https://docs.sony.com/release/DSCS75_S85.pdf you find this:

25440636-zcw4yonftbuvhj0ewy4qfuol-5-0.png So try it. Be aware the stick also can be damaged.
The re-inserting of the stick could clean some of the not clean contacts.
So make sure the card and the camera does have clean and shiny cards.

What memory card works with sony cybershot DSC-S85 camera


It takes <Memory Stick>, which is a Sony Proprietary format. Note that this is NOT the same as <Memory Stick Pro Duo>, or <Micro M2>, and although both of these could be used with an adaptor. The camera itself was originally supplied with a 16MB card.

Page 17 of the manual tells you how to load (that section also has a line drawing of one, if you need to see it).

Says to reinsert memory card & card is in camera. Try another card & says memory stick formatting error


i have the same problem..
I have a Sony Cybershot DSC T70 and it keeps saying "Reinsert memory stick" whenever I turn on the camera or slide down the camera lid. Also, whenever I try to view the pictures on my laptop it shows "Please reinsert the memory stick" something along those lines. As I have been researching for the solution, I would have to format the memory card. However, I wouldn't want to lose the pictures as I just took many as from the holiday last week. The only problem is the memory card, I tried using another memory card and it works fine with the camera. There is nothing wrong with the camera.\r\nCan someone please help me how to solve the memory stick problem? It would be great. Ty.

Problem accessing memory stick


I had the same problem. I bought a 2 gig memory pro-duo with the adapter and it gave me that error even though it fit just fine. I then tried a 512 memory stick and a 1 gig memory stick and neither one worked it gave me the C:13:01 error code. So I found out the hard way that the camera will not read it. The Sony DSC-S85 will not take memory above a 128. Try the Lexar 64MB memory stick. I just bought 4 and they work perfectly fine.

Format error


Before buying a new memory card, try to use your card in another camera. When you say you tried to format it through a card readr, do you mean that the card reader was connected to your PC?

Neither my camera nor my computer with XP PRO OS can identify this memory stick


You will need to reformat the card: 1. Place the card in the reader 2. Right click on the drive letter for the reader 3. Choose format 4. Choose full format with no label 5. Finish the format 6. Test card. It should now be working correctly. Note: Certain cameras may require that you also format the card in the camera.
