First try and clean the card slot. If this does not solve the problem, replace the memory card and try.

Well alot of the time there is a issue with the formating that the camera does on the stick and also when formating it on the computer it formats it another way as well. some in FAT and some in FAT32 this is ushally a error for the most part I would definatly plug your duo stick into a card reader and then go to my computer and the find the drive that the stick is in and right click on it and go to properties and do a error check on the stick to make sure that there is no errors. and if you can defragment after the scan then by all means do it and then format the card and try it and hopefully it will work out to your advantage.

*note this problem seems to only happen with the non branded duo sticks not the sony branded ones.*

SOURCE: CAN'T USE 2GB SONY MEMORY STICK PRO DUO CARD IN MY DSC P92,

Well, it seems as though this camera can only take 128MB sticks, but they are cheap if you can find them. Also, capitalizing everything does no good as it makes a post hard to read, shouts, and will get ignored by a lot of people.

I had the same problem, you can solve this by:
1. Push the card multiple times in/out the slot or
2. Use a little bit of contact spray on a small piece of tissue, rap this in the length around the memory card just 1 time. Be carefull not to make it to thick that it get stuck in the slot. Then push the card multiple times in/out the slot or
3. Cut a small strip of waterproof sanding paper (grain: 400 or more - the surface feels just like paper, and is just a thin as paper) just as wide as the card or slot. Cut a strip of plastic (eg.old credit card) also just as wide as the card or slot. Rap the sanding paper in the length of the strip and insert this in and out the slot. But!! ... make sure you stay at the upper side of the contacts, don't worry just do it carefully, don't use force and sand the contacts a couple of times. This way work for me, finally!!

That's because you used your Mac to erase the pics from the card instead of the camera. Now, to get it to work properly, you need to format the card in the camera.

I reformat my sd card in the computer to remove all the photos the when im using it in my sony cybershot camera it appears "reinsert memory card" how can i fix the it to use it again in the camera


When you need to delete the photos from the SD memory card, do not use your computer to do it. Use your camera to format the SD memory card.
To fix this problem, insert the SD memory card in your camera then go to the camera's Menu and format the SD memory card.

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.
Thanks.

Sony will not read 8gb Sandisk memory card. States, Reinsert memory card and flashes c:13:01


Check your owners manual...can your camera handle an 8gb card? Maybe all you need to do is format it in the camera.

I purchased a Sony cybershot DSC- S930 and inserted the Lexar memory stick (supposedly compatible with a sony camera) and upon turning the camera on there is an error message stating there is not internal...


Hello,
The camera does not recognize the card because

1. Card not compatible
2. Camera cannot handle such a large capacity.
3.Card not inserted correctly.
Maybe a recent firmware update can address the 2nd limitation.

Hope it helps.

Error message: Reinsert the Memory Stick"


The problem is with the memory card. It probably just shorted internally and is no longer useful. The amount of memory is not the problem, as I used a 4GB card for a long time and my card finally went bad. You will just have to get another memory card and MAYBE find someone to be able to retrieve your data.
