What is a Sony camera c:13:01 memory card error?


The manual says: The inserted "Memory Stick Duo" media cannot be used in your camera. (page95) in my manual.
There it is saying that certain sticks do have encryption technology like MagicGate. Or the camera is not compatible with the high speed parallel data transfer and some more reasons.
But if your stick worked fine before in the same camera something else must be wrong. If it was used before in the camera, please try to format it in an external card holder connected to your computer, before putting it back in the camera. Pleas also check is all contacts are clean and nothing is in the cardholder. Sometimes just a little but of dust or a tiny paper can ruin good working connections. Do the checking and cleaning first, before formatting, because from a formatted stick you can't get pictures that supposed to be there.

When you turn on the camera, message Memory stick error appears. Camera works fine with internal memory but not when using sony memory stick PRO DUO


Hi,
Try to format memory stick through camera menu to solve this problem and if camera wont allow to format then try/ replace memory stick as this PRO DUO could be defective.
If another memory stick gives same problem then memory stick slot connectors could be bad and visual check by local camera repair shop is required.
Thanks.

I have format error on my cybershot camera. I need to access photoc on camera


Hi,

The Camera may display the FORMAT Error if the inserted media is not formatted or if the media was formatted on a computer. This error may also display if the inserted media is not supported by the Camera. The maximum supported capacity and media used is Memory Stick Pro Duo with 1 or 2 GB.
If you've already captured the images in the Camera and the error message displays, then try to open different images captured in the Camera and check if the message appears for all the images.
If this happens with all the images, then remove and reinsert the MS (Memory Stick) in the Camera and check if it works. You may also try cleaning the MS terminals and also check if the Internal Memory of the Camera displays the error. If the issue persists, then insert the MS in the Computer slot and transfer all the images to the Computer. If the images appear normally in the Computer, then Format the media in the Camera. To Format the Memory Stick, select the Format option in the Memory Stick Tool Menu of the Camera. (Menu-->Setup-->Memory Stick Tool-->Format)
Formatting the MS will delete all the files saved.

Formatting the MS should resolve the issue.

Hi I have a sony cyber shot camera when i tried to ON it The memory stick error appears saying " INSERT MEMERY STICK" inspite of memery stick is inserted also i get this error.And when i tried to format it...


Hi,

The Reinsert Memory Stick error message appears when the inserted Memory Stick is corrupted or not in a correct Format. This issue can be resolved by trying the steps mentioned below:
  • Remove and re-insert the Memory Stick in the Camera.
  • Check if the inserted Memory Stick is compatible with the Camera.
  • Format the Memory Stick in the Camera. Do not Format the Memory Stick in the Computer, as this will damage the Memory Stick being used in the Camera. The Camera will not detect the Memory Stick again, if it is formatted in the Camera.
  • Clean the terminals of the Memory Stick by using a soft dry cloth.
  • Remove the Memory Stick from the Camera and check if the Internal Memory is working fine.

You may also try power resetting the Camera. Power resetting can be done by removing the batteries from the Camera and then press and hold the POWER BUTTON of the Camera for 15 seconds and then reinsert the batteries after 1 minute.


If the issue persists, service may be required.


Thanks,

KenSolutions

Please take out memory stick from camera and power up camera and check still gives format error?
If no further error then put memory stick back in camera and press Menu >> Format >> OK to format memory stick. That will delete all data on memory stick and refresh it for new photos.

Format error on my sony cybershot dsc-s730


Format error comes because memory stick has an error. Please format memory stick by going in to Menu>> format>>OK

If error still comes then memory stick is bad and need to be replaced with new one.

Use this memory stick in other Sony camera to confirm it. Problem still exist means memory stick is bad/ internal breakage.

Format Error in Sony Cybershot


it could be a faulty memory card, but a more likely cause is that this stick isn't formatted yet. you can format it usually by bringing up the camera menu, then going to tools and format. you can also format it by using windows and a cardreader or your camera.
