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 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

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.

File error


It means memory stick is unstable / worn out. Format memory stick by pressing Menu > format. If problem is still there, put new memory stick in camera.

Please take out memory stick from camera and power up camera and check still gives format error?
If no further error then put memory stick back in camera and press Menu >> Format >> OK to format memory stick. That will delete all data on memory stick and refresh it for new photos.

Memory card formatting error


Yeah, if you format the memory card, you will lose all data on it. try to scan memory card with updated anti virus software and always use memory card by camera to PC.

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).
