Re: Disk error C13:01
Any C13 error is a media error. First try formatting a blank disk in that camera itself. If that doesnt work, try blowing out the disk slot with compressed air. I wouldnt use canned air like you can get at office supply places because if the can is tilted some of the propellant can come out and gunk up the inside of your gear. If dry compressed air doesnt work, have it serviced by an authorized Sony repair shop.

Change the USB Configuration setting to Disk Drive in the Setup Menu. This allows the camera to appear as another disk drive on the computer so that you can easily copy the image files from the camera to the computer hard drive.
Put fresh batteries in and temporarily remove the disk. Make sure the camera powers up. When it does, go to the battery screen and select the correct battery type. Turn off the camera and reinsert the disk, then reformat the disk from the appropriate menu screen.
Turn it off, remove the disk and turn it back on. I have several of these that do the same thing and this usally works. Once the battery meter lights up you should be able to insert the disk and switch it to auto. For some reason sometimes it doesn't like the disk inserted when it powers up.
These old electronics tend to be tempermental, just like my old 1988 Nintendo....when the problem persisted, I held the disk slot open and went Nintendo-style on it (blow the dust out of the disk slot). That cleaned off the disk reader. I put the disk in, and it started reading the disk instantly.
You may have a bad floppy... Just like floppy drives in PCs sony floppys do go out. If you search around as I did (sorry don't remeber the link) you can find diagrams on how to replace the floppy and they are available for sale! I think we found some for $25 per. Good hunting!
1.cleaning the laser lens with isopropilic alcohol and q-tip 2.Try the reset button on the bottom of the camera. Tilt your camera and look below the LCD Display Backlight button on the bottom edge of the curved portion of the camera. You will need a paperclip or tip of a ball point pen to push the recessed little button. Place the camera on a level surface and try again. We find that the camera is very sensitive to tilting, as it gets older. 3.Make sure you format format at was FAT not fat32 4.All you need to do is "Quick format" the disk with the CAMERA rather than the memry stick plugged into the computer drive. 5.For sony error c:1301 using mini cd's: there is a program that recovers data from cd's that works with disk that have this error. It called "cdroller" Homepage is : www.cdroller.com 6.just take the memory stick off and re-insert it lot of times.. just keep doing it.
