This may happen if the Memory Stick is formatted in the Computer.

You may try formatting the Memory Stick in the Camera itself by using the FORMAT option in it.
If the issue persists even after formatting the Memory Stick in the Camera, then check whether a different Memory Stick works in the Camera.
If the other one works in your Camera then it must be the issue with the previous Memory Stick.

If the Camera does not work with a new Memory Stick, then you may try initializing it to check whether it resolves the issue.

Initialize option can be found in Menu items in the Camera.

If that does not resolve the issue, you may try removing the battery of the Camera for atleast one minute.
This should resolve the issue.

Hi - I am getting an error message when i switch on my Sony Cybershot dsc t9 saying access and then it flashes format error C13.01 - can you advise how to resolve?


It might be due to a bad contact of the placed memorycard.

1. Pull the memorycard out and in the camera several times and retry.
2. If not OK, format the card in the camera. If that does not work, format it in the computer.
3. Try another memorycard and recheck.

It says memory card error.i took out the sd card and it was not locked and it still says memory card locked. i formated the card also and it still says the same thing.


How big is its capacity ? Some device can only support memory card at certain maximum capacity, if you inserted card with higher capacity it wouldn't able to read it and it would say "card error".
Try to insert another card with lower capacity. i.e. if you have got "card error" notification for inserting 4 Gb memory card, try to insert 2 Gb card

Hope this help, and if you think its helpful RATE please.

This camera reads "card error" and won't format a


yes. you can try to insert the sd card to a computer using any all-in-1 memory card reader. then if windows detects it, right click the card's drive in windows explorer then select format. choose FAT as file system type. before you put it back to your camera clean the card's contact points, insert the card and if the camera detects the card format it again using the camera's format tool.

SD card - memeory card parameter error


Some camera's, especially older ones, have a limit as to the maximum size of the memory card that they support. Look in the manual to see what the camera can support.

You may try to format the memory card and then try again. If needed, you can use a camera photo recovery tool to recover photos from memory card.

Camera not reading SD card after being removed from my reader


Put the SD card back into the card reader. Are you files still there when the computer tries to read them?
If they are not, then it is very likely the card is corrupt. This happens when the card is removed before the computer is done reading/writing to the card.

There is also a SLIM chance the card is just bad.

CAMERA READS -CARD ERROR-AFTER INSERTING A NEW MEMORY CARD


First, make sure that the new memory card does not have the protect tab in the lock position. The new card must be unlocked and formatted before your camera will be able to use it. Also, make sure that the size card that you have purchased has not over shot the ability of your camera. I think that a 2 GB card is as large as you can use. Just because the card fits into the slot does not mean that the camera will address it!

"Read only card, change to internal memory to capture"


This error message indicates that the memory card in the camera is write-protected. To take a picture, turn off the camera and insert a new card, or change the storage location to internal memory.
