    Yeah, from the info I gave that would make sense. But, I didn't mention that the card worked for about a month and a half. I was thinking of getting a smaller memory stick but not really because of the size. More for the fact that I could get a better brand for the same price if I reduce the size. But, I don't think it's the camera because I found another post where someone had the same problem with the same brand of card and a different camera. But thanks.

Either this camera cannot handle this large a memory stick or else something is wrong with the camera and needs repair.
Try a much smaller memory stick, and see what happens. If it is still not working then repair of some sort is required.

I GOT THE PROBLEM IN MY CAMERA FORMAT ERROR C:13:01 MODEL DSC-P31 THE PROBLEM CREATED WHEN I TRYIED TO DOWNLOAD PICTURE


The Error message C:13:XX indicates that the Camera cannot read or write data on the Memory Stick or an unformatted Memory Stick is inserted in the Camera or the inserted Memory Stick cannot be used with your Camera or the data is damaged.

1. Try reinserting the Memory Stick several times.

2. Format the Memory Stick in the Camera.

*Formatting a Memory Stick will delete all the data saved in the Memory Stick.

Insert the Memory Stick in the Camera, Turn ON the Camera. Press MENU -> Memory Stick Tool -> Format -> OK.

Will not allow me to view pictures I just took


Try to recover what is left on the memory stick with TestDisk on a pc.
Note, download the windows version and not the dos/windows version, the
dos/windows version is for windows 3.11 and lower.

http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/TestDisk_Download

Try to fomat the card afterwards if this does'nt help at all try another card in
your camera, if the other card works replace your other card else get te camera autorized repairs man.

Succes.

Error message: Reinsert the Memory Stick"


The problem is with the memory card. It probably just shorted internally and is no longer useful. The amount of memory is not the problem, as I used a 4GB card for a long time and my card finally went bad. You will just have to get another memory card and MAYBE find someone to be able to retrieve your data.

Keeps telling me to reinsert my memory stick


I will forward a link to a page where you can get the information about this issue.

http://www.kb.sony.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?cmd=displayKC&docType=kc&externalId=C166567

Also please check whether you're using a Compatible Memory Stick with the Camera.

It's not recommended to Format the Memory Stick in the Computer.
The Memory Stick should be Formatted in the Camera only, other wise such error messages can occur.

Please try using a different Memory Stick and check whether the issue persists with the other Memory Stick.
This is to check whether the issue is with the Memory Stick.
