SOURCE: "No Memory Stick" errors
Due to the length of the memory stick it rarely causes bent pins sideways but they can over a long period lose their tension and fail to make contact with the memory. Also, more commonly they can tend to get a build up of dirt on them. Try using an old memory stick and quickly push the stick in and out of the camera as fast as you can and do this for about 15 to 20 times (with the camera off of course) this should clean any gunk built up on the contacts. Now switch on and use the new stick to see if it's working. If not try the exercise again. If it still doesn't work try sticking 2 layers of sticky tape to the front (the side opposite the gold contacts)Run the tape from the bottom (the contact end) to the top. Running it to the top will ensure it comes out with the stick when you eject it and it doesn't stay inside causing problems. Doing this will marginally increase the size of the stick and put a little more pressure on the contacts. Just nake sure the sticky tape comes nowhere near touching the stick's contacts as this will tend to make them pick up dirt. Also this trick is only to see if it's you camera's contacts have lost tension, its not meant as a permanent fix. If neither of these tricks work I'm afraid it's a trip to the camera hospital.

I have had the same problem. Contact your camera via USB to your PC. Click on MENU. You do see "USB Connect" and "folder" at the bottom. Make sure that it stays on "USB Connect" click on round button in the middle and you will get 4 options. It probably stays on AUTO. Select PTP and see what happens. Adobe Photo Album started up and I got to see the pictures till the moment that the stick got the format error. I lost a couple of pictures, but got a lot back.
I'm not sure what the problem is, however realized that if this happens again. Shut your camera. Start it up again. Go into MENU, SET UP, Memory stick tool, chnage Rec folder and create a new. This way you keep the folders smaller and do not loose that many pictures.
I hope that it helps.
