You need to format the memory card within the camera, else you will receive this error.

Bought used camera Sony Cyber Shot Model DSC-P32. What Memory Stick do I need?


You can use Memory Stick standard, pro or pro duo up to 2GB with the Camera.
    A dedicated adapter (MSAC-M2) must be attached to use Memory Stick Duo™ or MagicGate Memory Stick Duo media.

I have provided the Memory Stick compatibility chart for your reference.

Will DSC-T1 accept a MARK 2 memory stick?


NO, DSC-T1 will not accept such big memory card as its hardware supports maximum 2GB card memory that is more then enough for it because its 6 mega pixel camera.

I have a Sony Cyber-shot 2.0 mega pixels digital camera, and needed to get a larger capacity memory stick (I had 8MB and 16MB only), so I went to Best Buy and the guy there sold me a Sony Memory Stick PRO...


The Sony DSC-S75 will only accept a maximum 128MB memory Stick. I know it accepts the original sticks am still waiting to see if it will accept the PRO sticks.

Format error


Format memory stick, if no data on it.
If there is data on memory stick, copy it on PC using any good card reader.

No piks showing


The memory card can't be more then 2gb...the camera won't support more than that. Have you formatted the memory with the camera? If not try that, don't format the card with your computer.

Sony Cybershot DSC S650 Memory stick not formatting


Well I have the same camera.
And mine won't turn on.
Suggestion dont trust this camera.
Or maybe it just can't hold that much memory.
