Take a look inside your camera's CF card slot. I suspect that you may have a bent pin in there. If so, don't fret. Although professional repair would be more costly than the value of the camera, there is a very good chance that you can repair this yourself. Please see this link.

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.

I just bought a new memory card (8gb) for my digital camera (Samsung NV10) and when I inserted the memory card, I kept getting "Card Error". It said I should format the new memory card and I tried to...


The largest SD card you can use in your Samsung NV10 is 2GB. thats why once you insert the 8GB sd card its shows card error or need to fromat.

FYI. for every digital camera there's a compatible memory card and you can see from the box or manual and Its writen SD or SDHC.

goodlukc and thank you

Memory card error


Having gone over a month with no response, I assume it was just a matter of SD versus SDHC cards.

In my sony ericssion phone w350i when i insert


Hi,
This error may be of hardware or software... If the hardware in nature then you have to get it serviced.....
But before servicing try out following..... (1) insert your memory card in another cell and check that, that cell can read the your card... If another cellphone read your card means.. your cell's memory slot has malfunctioning.. So get it serviced.....
(2) or you can insert another memory card in your cell.. If this new card is read by your cell that means, your current memory card has been corrupted,... so buy a new memory card.....
(3) If the above both options fails.. then.. There is a also rare possibility of software corruption.... to update your software visit to the given link.... http://www.fixya.com/support/r4622711-updating_sony_ericsson_s_software_free

Memory card unformatted


If there are sd card error, you cannot format your sd card. you may get messages like


"No SD memory card inserted" messages appears when using digital cameras,
"A media card hard been inserted that contains errors. Do you wish to repair the Media Card now?"
You can read the files on SD memory card, but you cannot write new files or you cannot edit files on SD memory card,
"Access denied", when SD card is corrupted or broken,

... ...

... ...

you can fix sd memory card errors first and them format you sd card.

New memory card doesn't work.


Did you format the camera before you inserted the new memory card?

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!
