SOURCE: have a DSC-S930 camera inserted my memory stick

Hello Mate,
you may double check how you inserted the memory stick, it may be in wrong position.
other than that, you can insert this memory stick into your computer and see if you can open it from there. and you can also format it from your computer and then test it again with your camera.
Best Regards,

SOURCE: 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.

Sony cybershot H-55 shows 'NO MEMORY CARD' message


The sony cameras are very picky on memory cards. They only work with the some types memory stick duo. But if the card already did work in your camera, you should check the contacts on both the memory stick and in the camera. You also need to check if you did not try to put it in the wrong way around. It should not be possible to reverse the memory stick, but if you don;t know your own strength damage on the memory stick and camera can be done.
Please if possible try to read the memory stick in the card reader on your PC. and look if you did not damage the contacts on the stick and in the camera.

Hi I have a sony cyber shot camera when i tried to ON it The memory stick error appears saying " INSERT MEMERY STICK" inspite of memery stick is inserted also i get this error.And when i tried to format it...


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,

KenSolutions

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.

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.

Memory stick error


your memory card has a virus! try formatting using camera. make it a habit that whenever you reinsert the memory card in your camera format it first before taking shots, this will erase everything including virus!
