If the pictures are safely downloaded to your computer, you need to format the stick in the camera.

Memory stick formating error, on screen, nothing works with camera, have downloaded all photos and cleared stick but camera screen still says 'memory stick formating error'


You need to find out if the problem is with the camera or the stick. Firstly make sure that the write protection slide on the stick hasn't moved as this will stop the camera formatting it.

Then get hold of another stick and try it in the camera. If it works then its obviously a stick problem. If not then the camera has a fault. A local repair shop should be able to repair at a reasonable price.

Format error on dsc-s600


It sounds memory stick requires formatting.
Transfer all pictures in computer, then format memory stick in camera through format option in camera Menu.
Formatting will delete all data in memory stick and will refresh it.

When i turn the camera on it says format error and i cant take any pictures


Please take out memory stick from camera and power up camera and check still gives format error?
If no further error then put memory stick back in camera and press Menu >> Format >> OK to format memory stick. That will delete all data on memory stick and refresh it for new photos.

Clear pictures


Go into the menu of the camera and look for format under "Memory Stick Tool". Click "OK". It will say "all data in memory stick will be erased". Ready? Click "OK" and it's done.

Format Error in Sony Cybershot


i think this problem arises when you fail to regularly format the card ie. take lots of pictures and delete some and repeat the process over and over instead of downloading every session and formatting the card causing coruption. Also if you've bought pro duo memory stick off ebay poss. its a very good forgery (again i've been caught out by this).
