    When insert Memory stick duo in Sony DSC S75,

    The camera dose not recognise memory stick.

    All using the DUO STICK ADAPTERS



    But the memory stick works fine (read and write ) when connected to a PC stick reader.



    I wish I knew the answer..



    I have tried the 1Gig stick from Curries (they informed me the addapter is only for reading the stick !!! ,



    Jessop inform me my camera is old model and only can use 512Mb or less !!!,



    Boots 512 dose not work or even Boots own brand 256Mb (Hear I must thank the Boots assistant for trying different ones).

    When the memory stick pro is inserted into the camera, it just flops back and forward as if its the wrong size. I also tried the memory pro duo and it does the same.

Use this memory stick in other Sony camera to confirm it. Problem still exist means memory stick is bad/ internal breakage.

When you turn on the camera, message Memory stick error appears. Camera works fine with internal memory but not when using sony memory stick PRO DUO


Hi,
Try to format memory stick through camera menu to solve this problem and if camera wont allow to format then try/ replace memory stick as this PRO DUO could be defective.
If another memory stick gives same problem then memory stick slot connectors could be bad and visual check by local camera repair shop is required.
Thanks.

I have format error on my cybershot camera. I need to access photoc on camera


Hi,

The Camera may display the FORMAT Error if the inserted media is not formatted or if the media was formatted on a computer. This error may also display if the inserted media is not supported by the Camera. The maximum supported capacity and media used is Memory Stick Pro Duo with 1 or 2 GB.
If you've already captured the images in the Camera and the error message displays, then try to open different images captured in the Camera and check if the message appears for all the images.
If this happens with all the images, then remove and reinsert the MS (Memory Stick) in the Camera and check if it works. You may also try cleaning the MS terminals and also check if the Internal Memory of the Camera displays the error. If the issue persists, then insert the MS in the Computer slot and transfer all the images to the Computer. If the images appear normally in the Computer, then Format the media in the Camera. To Format the Memory Stick, select the Format option in the Memory Stick Tool Menu of the Camera. (Menu-->Setup-->Memory Stick Tool-->Format)
Formatting the MS will delete all the files saved.

Formatting the MS should resolve the issue.

Hi,
Your Sony camera is designed to use only memory stick PRO DUO with maximum memory 8 GB. It will not accept other memory cards. If you have been use memory stick pro duo and still request you to re-insert card. Remove your card and re-insert firmly. Regards

13:01 error


Hi,

The C:13:01 error code indicates the issue with the Media used in the Camera.

This may be due to the:
Format Error of the Internal Memory.
Un-formatted Memory Stick Duo.
Broken Memory Stick Duo.
Memory Stick Duo type error.
When the Camera cannot Read or Write the data in the Memory Stick Duo.

This can be resolved by Formatting the Internal Memory and Memory Stick Duo.
If not resolved, try inserting a new Memory Stick Duo which is supported.
Try power resetting, remove and reinsert the Memory Stick etc.

This will resolve the issue, if not the Camera may require service.

Sony memory stick pro duo


Well alot of the time there is a issue with the formating that the camera does on the stick and also when formating it on the computer it formats it another way as well. some in FAT and some in FAT32 this is ushally a error for the most part I would definatly plug your duo stick into a card reader and then go to my computer and the find the drive that the stick is in and right click on it and go to properties and do a error check on the stick to make sure that there is no errors. and if you can defragment after the scan then by all means do it and then format the card and try it and hopefully it will work out to your advantage.

*note this problem seems to only happen with the non branded duo sticks not the sony branded ones.*
