I have Sony DSC-S40 camera with MS 1Gb, when i switch it on i have "access" then error message says" Memory stick error" and flashing "C:13:01" and I can't take photoes or...


Hello and Welcome to Fixya!

C:13:01 memory stick error message indicates a Self diagnostic message.In C:13:01 the issue may be with the Internal Memory or with the Memory Stick.

To solve it try the following solutions

Format error with the Internal Memory which can be corrected by formatting the Internal Memory.
If it is issue with memory stick then turning the power off and on again or taking out and inserting the "Memory Stick" several times may help in resolving the issue. Error may be because of Unformatted "Memory Stick" which can be resolved by formatting the Memory Stick in the Camera If it not remove by formatting in the camera then connect it to PC and tried to format it again but either FAT instead of FAT32 which is the regular format and then reinserted the memory stick and formatted it with the camara. Now it will be solved if it still exist then it means Memory Stick is broken or not compatible which can be resolved by inserting a new compatible Memory stick


I hope this solution helps you
Your token of appreciation in the form of four thumbs and testimonial will be esteemed.

Cannot get my memory stick to work in my camera. The only memory I have is the 'internal memory' which is good for about one minute and possibly 10 photos. How do I get the memory stick of 1GB to start...


Did you formatted memory stick in camera?
Insert memory stick in camera and Format it by going into setup menu, you will see Format option and this will solve the issue.
If problem still not solved and camera gives memory stick error then try another memory stick in camera, you can use up to 2GB memory stick in this camera.
Thanks.

Says memory is full when its not...


1. Use a card reader and download the 8 pictures to your computer. 2.With no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format" or "initialize" and follow the on-screen instructions. 3. Go into the menu and see if your camera has an entry for "reset". If it does, reset the camera. 4. Insert the memory stick and do the "format"/"initialize" thing again. Everything should work properly now.

I was having memory stick PRO 256MB, now it got corrupted. what shall i do? i asked in sony showroom but they stop selling memorystick PRO. they told me using adaptor also 1GB or higher memory card will...


Regarding a corrupted Memory Stick, you may be able to recover the data using the free Sony Memory Stick Data Rescue Service. This is a downloadable utility, just click on the link which I have provided for you.

Your camera is designed to take Sony Memory Stick Pro up to and including 1GB capacity. Larger capacity Memory Sticks do not work in your camera, but as you have found out for yourself the 1GB versions are no longer manufactured. Your best option is to contact camera shops directly as there are bound to be some which are still in stock. You could also try sites like eBay and Amazon, but be very careful who you buy from as there are plenty of fakes with inferior performance.

You can use Memory Stick Pro or Pro-Duo provided the latter is supplied with the adapter which is normally included to make it the same physical size as a regular Pro. You can also find Memory Stick Micro (also known as M2) in the 1GB capacity which you require, but even with adapters it might not work with your camera due to other hardware issues.

1GB cards are generally regarded as obsolete, so many folks will have them lying unused due to upgrading. Why not try asking for one on your local FreeCycle or Freegle (UK only) group? You'll have most chances of success if you ask for the smaller 256MB or 512MB Memory Sticks, and they will also ensure maximum compatibility with your DSC-P73. Although it was designed for up to 1GB, such cards did not exist at the time so it was never officially tested with them in practice.

I hope that my posting has been of some assistance to you and helps you to obtain what you require. All I ask in return is that you take a moment to rate my answer.

Error message: Reinsert the Memory Stick"


The problem is with the memory card. It probably just shorted internally and is no longer useful. The amount of memory is not the problem, as I used a 4GB card for a long time and my card finally went bad. You will just have to get another memory card and MAYBE find someone to be able to retrieve your data.
