What you can do is look for a card reader that your memory stick can be read, after, you can plug that to your computer and simply format it.

Have you tried formatting the new memory card? Sony suggest you format a new card using the camera.

Supported capacity:
  • Memory Stick Duo" media: up to 64 GB
  • "Memory Stick Micro" media: up to 16 GB
  • SD card: up to 64 GB
  • microSD memory card: up to 64 GB

You may also want to check the camera's user guide to narrow down what's causing the card not being detected.

Internal memory formatting error to sony DSC-T2 camera error c:13:01


Hi,

In DSCT2 Camera, the C:13:01 error message indicates a Self diagnostic message. This message can be clearly identified by the help of a Sony Authorized service technician. Each of these codes indicates the symptoms and resolutions of the Camera. In C:13:01, the issue is with the Internal Memory or with the Memory Stick.

The Symptoms are:

1. Format error with the Internal Memory which can be corrected by formatting the Internal Memory.

2. Unformatted "Memory Stick Duo" which can be resolved by formatting the MS in the Camera.

3. "Memory Stick Duo" is broken or not compatible which can be resolved by inserting a new compatible MS.

4. There may be an issue with the Hardware part also, which can be resolved by the technicians.


Try turning the power off and on again, or taking out and inserting the "Memory Stick Duo" several times may also help in resolving the issue.

Thanks.

I see the same type of reports on the internet for just about all types of Sony cameras.

It can occur when a memory stick goes bad or when the camera memory stick reader has a problem.

First try a reset of the camera.
You will have to check the User's Manual to see how to do this.

Next try a new (or different) memory stick and see if you get the same bad result.

If you do, it is likely the problem is in the camera.

Sony will probably want about $200 to fix the problem.

128mb Sony Memory Stick Duo


Hi there,
            This is a common problem and its quite easy to resolve.

I had a very similar problem with a friends nokia 5200 memory stick , it refused access to the card , i got the message disk is write protected I couldnt even access it from a PC card reader or format it .
             Somehow he had accidentally set a security code for the memory stick and the mobile then forgot he had done it , I tried the usual code of 1,2,3,4 and this didnt work.
                                                                         When I tried the number 1 on its own , suddenly I could access the memory stick again and format it and didnt get the message (disk is write protected)...Reset your P800 security codes with the master reset function in the main settings menu.This will remove any codes that restrict access to the memory stick...
