C:32:01 is a "disk format error". It means that your memory card is most likely corrupted.

First, remove the memory card and visually check that the electrical contacts are bright, clean and not greasy. Do not touch the contacts with your bare skin, use a cotton bud moistened with alcohol or methylated spirits if they need cleaning. At the same time, check that the lock switch on the MemoryStick is fully unlocked. Slide it fully to locked and then fully back to unlocked.

If the contacts and lock switch are fine then you can try reformatting the MemoryStick using the "Format" command in the camera menu, do NOT do this on a pc/Mac or in an external card reader. If there is an option to "Full Format" or "Quick Format" choose the full option. Note that any stored images will be deleted, but if you have suitable data recovery software they can still be recovered afterwards as long as no new pictures are taken which overwrite the data.

If that fails then try another MemoryStick in your camera. If the fault remains then the camera is faulty and must either be sent to a Sony Service Centre or replaced. Your camera may still be under the manufacturer's warranty, if so repairs will be free.

I hope that I have been of some assistance; please take a moment to rate my answer.

Would you like to open your pictures from your Sony Cybershot to your computer? Your cybershot cam is usually plug and play so you dont need a software for that. All you do is to plug in your camera to your computer's usb port using the usb cable. When the computer detected the new usb device, open a Windows Explorer. Right click your windows Start button, and choose Explore. From the list of Drives from the left, you need to find the Drive letter associated with your camera. Just click on that and it will show you the files on the right. The pictures are located somewhere inside those folders. You just need to click and drag them to your computer's local drive.

Should you have any questions, please let me know. Good luck!
