There are two possiblities that I can think of. First is the memory card has gone bad for some reason. Can you check it with another device in your house, like a computer or printer that reads memory cards? Put the card in one of these and see if there is a problem reading the card. Does the camera take pictures OK and store them on the card OK? But when you try and erase them is this when you get the message? Is the card installed correctly? You can get a new card for very little money, especially now that christmas is coming up, these are on sale everywhere. If the card is not bad then the camera should be looked at by a repair person. Make sure the card is all the way inserted in the camera!

SOURCE: Error message: Reinsert the Memory Stick"

The problem is with the memory card. It probably just shorted internally and is no longer useful. The amount of memory is not the problem, as I used a 4GB card for a long time and my card finally went bad. You will just have to get another memory card and MAYBE find someone to be able to retrieve your data.

Hello and Welcome to Fixya!

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.

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.

Thanks for using FixYa.

MY SONY CYBER SHOR DSC-W270. IT SHOWS SYSTEM ERROR WHEN TURNED ON.


Hi,

The System Error message displays when the files on the recording media have been copied or deleted repeatedly on a computer. Backup the files on your computer, then format the recording media in the camera to resolve this issue.
Formatting the Memory will erase all the data stored in the Memory Stick.
If the error message displays after formatting the Memory Stick, then try using a different Memory Stick media. Once the Memory Stick is inserted, perform manual power reset of the Camera.
To reset the Camera, turn off the Camera and remove the battery pack.
Then, allow the Camera to remain without power for 30 seconds.
Later, re-insert the Battery pack in the Camera to resolve the issue.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Hi,

The C:13:01 error code is the self diagnosis display of the camera to identify the cause of the issue with the Camera. This error code indicates the issue with the medium used in the Camera. You can try few steps to check if the issue can be resolved.
Try using different Memory Stick in the Camera.
Make sure that the Memory Stick used is compatible with the Camera. (The maximum capacity that can be used in the Camera is of 2GB Memory Stick PRO Duo.)
Format the Memory Stick in the Camera and check if it works. (Formatting the Memory Stick will delete all the files saved in it).

If the issue happens with different Memory Sticks after performing all the steps, service may be required.

2. Unformatted "Memory Stick Duo" which can be resolved by formatting the MS in the Camera.

3. "Memory Stick Duo" is broken or not compatible which can be resolved by inserting a new compatible MS.

4. There may be an issue with the Hardware part also, which can be resolved by the technicians.


Try turning the power off and on again, or taking out and inserting the "Memory Stick Duo" several times may also help in resolving the issue.

Thanks.
