Problem with memory stick adaptor

I have a new memory stick with adaptor. When I turn on the camera it says "access"...then eventually memory stick error. The numbers c:13:01 are flashing in the upper right corner. The memory stick seems to fit fine, but this screen is stuck and won't do anything else...Is it just the battery?

  8. Remove the Memory Stick media from the camera.

Memory Stick for my DSC P-72 3.2 mega pixel camera is not working. The larger stick is no longer available. Will the camera take the adapter for the smaller disc and a 2gig stick?

your camera is only available for use with a regular memory stick . it's not compatible with pro memory sticks (or ms greater than 256mb). so even if you you a memory stick adaptor with a 2gb ms, it will not work with cam. you'll need regular ms with has a maximum capacity of up to 128mb only.although those ms are no longer available from sony,you can do an internet search (like google) to check availability of the ms from online can type in the ms models: msh128 or mshm128a.(that's a duo size ms w/included adaptor).you'll be suprise to find out it's still available online.hope this helps.tnx:)

Have Sony CyberShot DSC-F707 Sony Memory Stick Duo Adaptor and Sony Memory Stick Pro Duo 4gb When installed get C:1301 error


In DSCT1 Camera, the C:13:01 error message indicates a Self diagnostic message. Each of these codes indicates the symptoms and resolutions of the Camera. In C:13:01, the issue is with the Memory Stick being used in the Camera.

The Symptoms are:

Memory Stick Pro Duo 4GB is not compatible with the DSCF707 Camera. Maximum capacity supported by the Camera is up to 128MB. Please try using a MS with 128 MB and check if it works. A dedicated adapter (MSAC-M2) must be attached to use Memory Stick Duo or MagicGate Memory Stick Duo media.

Blue screen access error when viewing or taking pics or vids

Please try to take as many pictures from memory stick as you can then format memory stick through format option in setup.
Hope this will resolve this blue access issue.
You can use another memory stick like 1GB in this camera.

Sony Memory Stick Duo Adapter

When you download to the computer, what program do you open with? Try not using the auto-open feature, and open direct from new device in "my computer".

Sony cyber-shot DSC-W35

you might just want to buy a memory stick adaptor for your memory stick and insert it in the pc memory stick duo slot.. its alot faster to transfer pictures like that anyway.. I wouldnt worry about connecting the camera to the pc, all it does it is consume battery power and transferring pictures takes a litttle bit longer.  But if you do connect with usb, make sure its hooked on properly and you have plenty of battery power.
