Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-F717 Digital Camera
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.

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.

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.
