My memory card is showing a format error. I have removed it and used another card that works fine. How do I fix it and get the pictures off the card and make it useable again? I think I had this problem 3 years ago and a tech guy in France fixed it for me while I was on the road at a photo store.

Re: memry card error Sony DSC-V1
Hopefully you've resolved this by now, but if you still have the corrupted card then I should be able to recover any files from it for you, reformat the card, and return the card and data back to you. I use EasyRecovery Professional which certainly wasn't cheap but has never failed me yet.

This error indicates a memory problem.
The camera can't read or write data to the memory card. Try turning off and on the camera again, or take out and reinsert the memory card several times. Also remove and reinsert the battery.
It also can mean the memory card is not formatted, or there is a format error for an other reason. Format the internal memory or the memory card.
It also could mean the memory card is damaged and can't be used any more. Then you have to place a new memory card.
I hope something will help.
This is also in you user manual.
Format error display shows memory card is unstable and need to be format through format option in Camera menu. Format memory card, if that does not fix the issue, try another memory card in camera and check this memory card in another camera just to make sure either camera got problem or memory card is bad.
Take out memory card from camera, turn it On and check does it show format error? If yes, press Home, Memory option and format internal memory. If camera does not show format error then put back memory card in and press Home, Memory card option and format it. This will delete all files/ data and will refresh memory card, take some pictures and check. If after formatting, still format error exist, put new memory card.
i have the same problem..
I have a Sony Cybershot DSC T70 and it keeps saying "Reinsert memory stick" whenever I turn on the camera or slide down the camera lid. Also, whenever I try to view the pictures on my laptop it shows "Please reinsert the memory stick" something along those lines. As I have been researching for the solution, I would have to format the memory card. However, I wouldn't want to lose the pictures as I just took many as from the holiday last week. The only problem is the memory card, I tried using another memory card and it works fine with the camera. There is nothing wrong with the camera.\r\nCan someone please help me how to solve the memory stick problem? It would be great. Ty.
This problem can be fixed by formating memory stick, please go to Camera Menu > format option. Take back-up of data in memory before formating it, and use memory card reader to get data in PC as camera is unable now to transfer data in PC (until it shows no problem with memory stick).
If you have a computer with a memory card reader that takes the stick. insert it into the computer and goto my computer find the memory stick drive letter and format it their then retry the stick in the camera. also try to go into the cameras menu and try formatting it their if you cannot format the stick it is very possible it is bad.
