Sollution for all these things is to reformat the chip. YOU DONT NEED A SPECIAL PROGRAM. My camera unfortunately has no firmware with a format option, so i tried the Windows ones to let this thing run. And it worked after these MAGIC WORDS: format y: /FS:FAT /A:8192 the y: is the driveletter for the chip in your pc and the important word is /A:8192 -- means that the clustersize on the chip has to be 8kB. The standart format in windows is using 512b clusters on a chip with these sizes.

Your respose is highly appreciated.

Regards,
Arjun

The same occurred with my F717. The problem with mine was a loose ribbon cable going to the memory stick holder. Here is the website I used to repair my own F717:

The instructions include easy to follow (pictures and) step-by-step instructions.

Hope this helps.

Sony DSC-P32 Memory Stick Error, "C:13:01"? When I went to review pics on memory card, camera would not scroll through and it would immediately shut off. Assuming it was the batteries, I...


Hi,

The C:13:01 error code is the self diagnosis display of the camera to identify the cause of the issue with the Camera. This error code indicates the issue with the medium used in the Camera. You can try few steps to check if the issue can be resolved.
Try using different Memory Stick in the Camera.
Make sure that the Memory Stick used is compatible with the Camera. (The maximum capacity that can be used in the Camera is of 2GB Memory Stick PRO Duo.)
Format the Memory Stick in the Camera and check if it works. (Formatting the Memory Stick will delete all the files saved in it).
This may happen if the files in the Memory Stick is damaged or corrupted.
Try turning the camera power off and on.
Remove and re-insert the Memory Stick several times.
Insert another Memory Stick in the Camera to check if the issue is with the particular Memory Stick.
Try resetting the Camera and check if it helps. To reset the Camera, press the RESET button located inside the jack cover using a sharp pointed object.

If the issue happens with different Memory Sticks after performing all the steps, service may be required.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Cannot get my memory stick to work in my camera. The only memory I have is the 'internal memory' which is good for about one minute and possibly 10 photos. How do I get the memory stick of 1GB to start...


Did you formatted memory stick in camera?
Insert memory stick in camera and Format it by going into setup menu, you will see Format option and this will solve the issue.
If problem still not solved and camera gives memory stick error then try another memory stick in camera, you can use up to 2GB memory stick in this camera.
Thanks.

Hi,

The Reinsert Memory Stick error message appears when the inserted Memory Stick is corrupted or not in a correct Format. This issue can be resolved by trying the steps mentioned below:
  • Remove and re-insert the Memory Stick in the Camera.
  • Check if the inserted Memory Stick is compatible with the Camera.
  • Format the Memory Stick in the Camera. Do not Format the Memory Stick in the Computer, as this will damage the Memory Stick being used in the Camera. The Camera will not detect the Memory Stick again, if it is formatted in the Camera.
  • Clean the terminals of the Memory Stick by using a soft dry cloth.
  • Remove the Memory Stick from the Camera and check if the Internal Memory is working fine.

You may also try power resetting the Camera. Power resetting can be done by removing the batteries from the Camera and then press and hold the POWER BUTTON of the Camera for 15 seconds and then reinsert the batteries after 1 minute.


If the issue persists, service may be required.


Thanks,

The resolution is probably incorrect for the camera LCD. try changing their size to a standard size like 640x480 with a resize program.

Memory stick error


hi bubba9

if you are using the handy cam just look at the specs on the manual to determine what memory card is compatible. based on your info it is unlikely that the camera even supports 4gig of memory. You should try the smaller sony memory stick up to 2gb only and it should work. good luck

Try using another memory stick, or insert a confirmed good memory stick, if OK, the memory stick is defective, if the same error, try pressing reset at the back of camera, a small hole beside the the DC jack. if OK, then fine, if still the same, camera needs repair. thanks
