Hi. This could be a virus issue on the memory stick. Plugged the memory stick to a laptop that has a card reader slot and run anti virus program. You should be able to view all the pictures to your computer. If pictures are hidden then there is a huge possiblity that the memory stick got a virus.

Camera keeps telling me to reinsert the memory card. I've tried to new cards. When I put the memory card I was replacing because it is full, it goes back into the camera just fine.


As a last resort you could copy the full card to a computer and then delete the pictures on the card and use that again.

Here is the error list from the camera manual.
This is all I can suggest from here.

Insert the "Memory Stick Duo" correctly.

You can try using a file recovery software like Sony 4GB Memory Stick PRO Duo. Once files are recovered, please format the drive to fat32 file system. It will then be blank, ready to write files back to it.

The above shows how to format the Memory Stick PRO Duo in the PSP so the correct file structure will be shown.

Be sure to back up any data on the Memory Stick PRO Duo before doing this as all data will be lost on the Memory Stick PRO Duo device.

After slideshow memory stick is missing photos (not on computer)


If you put the memory stick back into the camera can you see them thru the camera menu? If so your computer's SD card port may be having issues. try using the card in another computer or use the cameras USB cable to transfer the pictures from the camera to the computer if it has one. Do other memory sticks work in the computer ok? If you cannot see them in the camera either then the pictures will be corrupted and probably cannot be recovered. Then the card will need to be formatted to erase any errors on the card. Always use the camera to format a card whenever possible...Hope that helps.

File error


I was having the same problem with my 4GB memory stick pro duo, when i took more than 50 pictures with my camera (dsc-w90) i would get the blue screen with the file error message. I'm guessing you bought the memory stick on ebay right? I bought mines there and it turns out it's a fake one. If you also bought it there then you most likely have a fake memory stick because I found out that most of the memory sticks sold on ebay are fake, to help you figure out if you have a fake one or not check out this guide or google fake memory stick pro duo. http://reviews.ebay.com/FAKE-Sony-Memory-Stick-Pro-Duo-MagicGate-Cards-Exposed_W0QQugidZ10000000001236041
