Memory Stick Error, PLEASE HELP!!!

I got a new "lexar 2Gb memory stick PRODuo". When inserted in handycam, it flashes “MEMORY STICK ERROR”. I tried to reformat it in the camera and it says the same thing. How can this be fixed?


Thank You,
Steve

    Turns out that the 2GB is to large for the cam. The largest I can have is 64Mb.

    Thank you for trying,
    Steve

Does any other Sony memory stick still work in your camcorder? If yes, means memory stick isn't match with this camcorder. Use Sony memory stick.

Some computers will not support a large 8GB stick. The best some will do is 2GB, If you are running a computer pre-2001, you may not be able to use the 8GB stick (I have the same problem with my desktop PC). It just is not supported!

Will not format


1. First, make sure that the ProDuo is not locked. Check if there's a toggle switch on the side/edge that may possibly locked the card.

2. Make sure that there's no password set to the card. If you're using the card into a phone or digital camera, there's an option for you to set a password or pin code in it. Be sure that the memory card is free from any of those.

3. If it's not formatting using your camera or cellphone, try to use a card reader and insert it to a computer. Once the card is detected, try to reformat the card using the computer. You may reformat it with either FAT32 or NTFS file system.

If same problem occur after using the computer, then you may need to buy a new card.

Good luck and have a great day!

Memory Error Message


There is a white switch on the side of those sticks, and make sure it is not in write protected mode. If that doesn't work, I am sorry to say that stick might of went bad. Before giving up I would take to a professional film place and have them take a look to see if they can get them off w/o formatting.

Use the camera to format the SD card not your computer. There should be a menu option to format it.

Could be that the camera does not support a 2G stick. Check the operators manual.
