Sony right...format errors usually accure with them. If you didn't format your card through the camera prior to taking pictures then that is why it's not reading. You might want to check to see if the type of camera you bought requires a special program to read the files. Sony is famous for this.

I thought my camera was fine until I plugged it into te computer after taking pictures, the pictures were all corrupted and even after I put them on the computer I couldn't view them, it does say there is...


This usually due to the memory stick on the digital camera getting corrupted etc. You will have to re-format the memory stick, but will lose the photos on it. You can try backing up the photos from the memory stick to the PC and see if you are able to view them correctly. The best would be to get a new memory stick if this continues to happen. Let me know, how you come along.

Memory stick is blank


Can you still see them on the tv? If so, you could get a card reader and download the pics to your computer. Then, you could format the card in the camera to get it working again.

Problem with corrupted files


Dont panic... Just insert the memory stick in to a card reader and donot try to open it. but make sure that your memory stick gets detected.Then you can use any of the file recovery softwares to recover the photographs with out formating.I generally use the free app "PC file recovery". In case your memory stick is not detected in the first place, then There is no other option other than formatting. But the recovery software can recover 90% of the photos even after formatting.
If this doesnt work, post back. I will explain in more detail.

"Format error" memory stick PRO DUO


Try photo recovery software to rescue the lost photos and movies, here are some you may rely on. Both programs can also recover videos and music.

Photo Recovery Software (for Windows)
Mac Photo Recovery Software (for Mac OS X)

Be careful: Before your pictures are recovered, do not attempt to save more files to your Sony memory card in case the original files(your pictures) are overwritten.

Format Error in Sony Cybershot


i think this problem arises when you fail to regularly format the card ie. take lots of pictures and delete some and repeat the process over and over instead of downloading every session and formatting the card causing coruption. Also if you've bought pro duo memory stick off ebay poss. its a very good forgery (again i've been caught out by this).
