    Having the same C:13:01 error on my DSC-F707. I was able to put the Sony 128mb memory stick in my Epson printer and recovered the pictures which leads me to believe that it might be an issue with the camera. So I called CSI camera repair in St. Louis and he said that it is most likely the circuit board that holds the memory stick reader and he would not do the work himself he would have to ship it out and it would cost about $200 to repair. So I guess I will be looking for a new camera.

    I have a Sony Cybershot DSC S85. Suddenly it started to show this Format Error C:13:01 and it is not working any more. I thought it was the memory card but it is the camera cos I have tried with severals and all the time appears the same message. Is there anything I can do to solve it?

    while taking photos
    this format error C:13:01 appears, if you turn off the camera and switch it on
    again the fault disappears but any photos taken after this point cannot be
    downloaded from camera.

Solved it by accident! Went to "set-up/file number/reset" after resetting I then formatted stick and now it worky... Sony dsc-f707 camera w/ 128m stick

We are finding that larger than the 256M doesn't work on this camera. If you have the error c:13:01 on a 256M or smaller, put it in the camera and format the disk from the camera. Put the camera in setup up mode ( on the knob) scroll down from camera set up to set up 1. Format is 1st selection, Go to Ok, Go to Ok. This should solve the problem. Hope this helps!
