Re: memory stick problem

Note that 256 is the largest capacity. Regretfully, I bought a 1 gig stick before checking this list.

Format error of memory card cyber shot dsc-s3000 sony

You did not specify the size of the card...some cameras do not accept 2 or 4 Gb or bigger memory cards..and give error..if this is not the case try to format it on your computer with either internal or External CARD READER/Writer and than try to use it on camera, it may correct the problem.

I have a Sony digital camera model # DSC S75. I would like the largest memory stick available for still photos. I get confused with GM and MB. I found one for 32 GB, is that the lrgest and about how much...

I did a bit of research on this, and you're going to have to be very careful. Your camera is only compatible with the very first generation of "memory stick". That sounds like a generic term, but it's actually a Sony specification. Please take a look at the wikipedia page on memory stick, and note all the newer versions. Also note that the 'memory stick' is no longer manufactured. Here is a list of memory sizes, I agree that the Mb and Gb are confusing. Each one is double the size of the one before.

8 Mb
16 Mb
32 Mb
64 Mb
128 Mb
256 Mb
512 Mb
1 Gb
2 Gb
4 Gb
8 Gb
16 Gb
32 Gb
64 Gb

Now, you will have to find a genuine Sony "memory stick" and not the Pro, or Duo, or anything like that. When they were manufactured, the largest one was 128 Mb, so that is the limit for your camera. Anything in "Gb" or Gigabytes cannot be a memory stick. I did find 128Mb memory sticks on Amazon. The review page on DPreview will tell you how many pictures you can store on a card half the size, just double it.

Card reader always says memory card error

This camera will not accept high capacity mem cards. You are limited to the 2GB size, but that is not much of a limitation since this 5 megapixel camera can be set to put more than 2,000 pictures on a 2GB chip.
Perhaps I am not understanding your question. Are you talking about the camera giving a "memory card error" message or some other device?

What size memory card can I used for my easy share c330.

The C330 uses SD and MMC cards. SD cards are limited to 2GB in size, so that's the upper limit. Cards bigger than 2GB are technically SDHC cards. They will fit into the slot but will not work.

The Sony DSC-F717 will only take upto a 256MB Memory Stick - larger size Memory Sticks will give the C: 13:01 error. Use a correct memory stick and your camera should be fine. Regards, Andrew

Yes, you need to have memory stick because camera has limited internal memory that can store few pictures only.
Put new memory card, format it through camera Menu and copy internal memory pictures to memory stick, take our memory card from camera and delete internal memory pictures either one by one or format internal memory through camera Menu.
