    I get exactly the same messages and followed the advice. However, I am confused about how to find the security.fsd file, how/what to copy to the file, etc.

    I already have password protected data on the stick.

    If I follow the instructions, it tells that I will lose all of the information on the stick if I run the password lock exe.

    Does anyone know what to do?

I had exactly the same problem today. I reinstalled the passwordlock software ( and everything works fine again.
The installation procedure creates a new Security.FSD file, so be sure to make a copy of this file and move the copy back to the USB stick after reinstalling the passwordlock software. Otherwise you will loose all secured data. Security.FSD is a hidden file, so windows explorer must be set to show these files.

    Try unchecking "Hide protected operating system files" in windows explorer tools > Folder Options > View

    If the file is not visible when unhiding hidden files, try unchecking "Hide protected operating system files" as well.

    When you run passwordlock_setup.exe, a new security.fsd file is created on the memory stick and therefor all your secured data (which is stored in the security.fsd file) will be lost. However, after installation, you can copy your backed-up security.fsd file back to the memory stick. Doing so will recover all your secured data. All non-protected data on the memory stick will remain untouched by the installation program.

When I turn my camera on it gives me an error code C13:01. It will not let my computer recognize the camera so I cannot get what I need off of the camera to buy a new one.

Go to Sony Digital Photograpy Support Area (for EN in the link enter you language), select your camera model, find Memory Stick Downloads and download the Memory Stick Formatter on the following page. Install. Format.

That will erase your pictures already on the stick but the device will be usable again.

Hope this helps.

I got a emachines T1120 desktop pc it have 512 memory all i want to know if i can put 2 512 memory in it will it work?

The easiest way to see what kind of memory and the amount of memory your computer can handle is to go to the Crucial Memory website ( and click on the Scan my System. It will tell you the number of slots your system has, the capacity of each slot, and the type and speed of RAM that can be used.

Memory Stick error


Following types of memory sticks are compatible with the Camera model DSC-V1:

Memory stick: 32/64/128 MB
Memory stick Pro: 256 MB/512 MB/1 GB/2 GB.
Mark 2 Memory stick Pro: 1/2 GB.

However, in order to use Memory Stick Duo or MagicGate Memory Stick Duo media with the Camera, a dedicated adapter (MSAC-M2) must be attached.

Follow the steps given below to troubleshoot the Camera that is not recognizing any compatible memory sticks:

Furthermore, you may try resetting the Camera to the original factory settings by pressing and holding the Reset button for 30 seconds.

If the issue persists even after performing all the above mentioned steps then the Camera is required to be diagnosed and serviced.

Reinsert your 512 MB MS if it work fine then change your 2MB MS
Good luck

That does not look like virus, probably the solid state disk inside your memory stick has gone faulty.

Try formatting it again, ticking th "complete formatting" option and not the quick one.
If it does not work the memory is faulty.

If you bought this memory in recent times, go back to the retailer and tell them the memory was defective.

If it is a good brand memory stick (eg. Kingston, Sony, SD etc.) call factory, if it is less than one year old they will send you a replacement, if it is older than this, just take a chance and call them the same, if they accept it is a factory fault they will send a replacement the same.

Memory upgrade

The memory should be DDR II Ram. To find how much ram you have simply click on Start then right click on "My Computer" and click properties. Chances are you have 512 ram. It will tell you in the lower right hand side along with your processer and windows version. Once you have found out how much ram you have, turn off your computer flip it upside down and pull out the battery. Then you should see a cover with one or two screws in it that measures about 3 inch by 4 inch. Remove the screws and take the cover off. This is where your memory goes. If there is 512 memory in your computer you will either have 1 512 memory stick or 2 256 sitcks. Remember that any time you upgrade memory it is best to take out the old memory and replace with either one stick of higher ram or two of equal ram. Never mis a 512 and a 256 or 512 and 1gig ect. Take the ram stick/sticks out and bring them down to the store with you just so as to get the correct memory. Also, remember when you replace the memory, if you are just upgrading to one 1gig stick to put it in the A DIMM slot. This is the primary ram slot.

Problem accessing memory stick

I had the same problem. I bought a 2 gig memory pro-duo with the adapter and it gave me that error even though it fit just fine. I then tried a 512 memory stick and a 1 gig memory stick and neither one worked it gave me the C:13:01 error code. So I found out the hard way that the camera will not read it. The Sony DSC-S85 will not take memory above a 128. Try the Lexar 64MB memory stick. I just bought 4 and they work perfectly fine.
