You could try to re-format the stick. Some cameras are a bit picky when it comes to formatting. Often they will not work unless formatted directly on the camera. You could also try formatting it under widows if you have a card reader. This may kick it into life.

I bought a new Memory stick for my Sony DCR-TRV320 Camcorder and when i switch my device to memory mode, it tells me "Memory Stick Error."


Check the following:
Memory Stick is inserted in correct position and orientation in camcorder. Try re-inserting several times.
Write-protect tab is switched to allow writing to memory stick (on back of memory stick)
Memory Stick is formatted in FAT file system (this should already be done except if memory stick has been formatted in a computer in a different format)
Memory Stick is not over the maximum capacity memory stick of the camcorder.
Memory Stick is not full.
Memory Stick is clean and dry.
The dcr-trv320 is a 2000 yr. model and came with a 4mb capacity stick and can probably only use up to a 128mb capacity stick or possibly 256mb. Most memory sticks you can buy today are 1GB, 4GB, 8GB etc. memory stick pro duo. and are probably incompatible. E-Bay has some of the old memory sticks like the 128mb for sale.
There is a slight possibility that static electricity discharge zapped the stick. Try another memory stick or try the stick in another device.

I need the memory stick number to my dcr-trv18 what memory stick do i need


Your camcorder uses the original Sony memory sticks in the following capacities:
4Mb, 8Mb, 16Mb, 32Mb, 64Mb and 128Mb. All but the 128Mb have been discontinued. You can look online for the 128Mb memory stick from many vendors. You may find the other ones from E-bay.

My Sony DSC-S75 camera shows a format error when I insert my 128MB memory stick also blinking is C:13:01. Any idea's how to fix? Thanks!


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.

Memory stick error


You should not format a memory stick with your computer.
Did you format the stick with your cam.You should.

Without the update your cam can take a 128mb memory stick.
Not all sticks work, it depends on the maker of the stick.
I am going to post a link for you to look at the compatibility chart
for your cam. If you look there are only two kinds recommenced.
This does not mean another one will not work,but they only stand behind the ones they recommend.

There is only one update for your cam and it has nothing to do with
the memory stick. So you should look at the list of sticks for your cam, look down the list for your model, then look down father
and there is another list, that has something for your model.

Memory Stick Error, PLEASE HELP!!!


Does any other Sony memory stick still work in your camcorder? If yes, means memory stick isn't match with this camcorder. Use Sony memory stick.
