Two things to try:
1. Get a separate card reader and use it to download the pics to your computer.
2. Take the card to Walmart and plug the card into a Kodak Picture Kiosk machine. You can print the pics or even make a cd of them.
Once you safely have your pics. put the card back into the camera, go into the menu and find "format"..follow the on-screen instructions to erase and initialize the card. Everything should be back to normal.
check if magicgate in your memory stick is supported, if not...it´s an alternative MS...but you can try to format all your memory stick using your psp , PS3 or even with a pc MS card reader...re-install all ms softs...
You can delete pictures from the camera. You can transfer the pics to your computer, then delete. Plug you camera into your computer, click start/computer/ double click on the drive that accesses your camera. From here, you can drag/drop pics or delete them or format the entire memory stick. If you need all of the pics and do not have a computer, you will need to purchase another memory stick.
