I have succeed to recover photos from memory card with Tenorshare Data Recovery.It is a professional photo recovery software that can recover data after deeply scanning your memory card to look for lost data. By the way,you can download it and scan your memory card for free to preview whether your photos can be recovered.Get it from http://www.any-data-recovery.com/
So what kind of un-recognized format your photos turned into? Are they now RAW format? I guess yes because I met this kind of error on my Canon camera. In your case you should take a try this photo recovery software PhotoRetrieval. It should help you out. If you are Mac user, go to Photo Recovery for Mac.
Just connect your camera (memory card or stick etc) to the computer which has installed this program and start to recover. But just remember - DO NOT write anything back until you get the deleted data back. Best regards.
Wasn't quite sure what you question was, lemekaralph. Is there nothing said about why the stick should be reinserted? The best idea, based on what I think you're asking, may be to either use a USB card reader or a laptop or PC that has a card reader to load any photos off to a computer and then right click on the stick in the Computer/My Computer Window and click on format. It will clear the card completely and then allow you to put the card into the camera normally.
Make sure you've copied the photos onto the PC if you want to keep them before formatting and, after the stick is accpeted by the camera, reformat it again IN the camera - do that because Sony suggest formatting for best results should be done in the camera.
#1 Insert your memory card into your computer's reader if you have one. If not, you can purchase a multi-format USB Memory Card reader from Amazon.com or Buy.com #2 Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives. #3 Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive. #4 In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'. #5 Leave all the options as they are and click on 'Start'. This is a non-reversible process so make sure this is what you truly wanted to do in the first place. #6 Once the process is completed, take the memory card out and insert it into your Digital Camera or any other device. Try to browse to it to make sure it works fine now.
The camera may display a FORMAT ERROR if the inserted media is not formatted or if the media was formatted ona Computer. This error may also display if the inserted media is notsupported by the camera.
Yes, It may be possible to recover deleted pictures by using the MemoryStick File Rescue application. This software is available as a freedownload from the Sony eSupport Web site by clicking the followinglink: Memory Stick File Rescue.
Try using a card reader and a computer to recover the files inside the card, saving them on the computer. When you have finished try formatting the memory stick or replace it with a new one. If you still get the error with a newly formatted memory stick, then that is a faulty mainboard inside the camera, but this is not common. Usually you fix C:13:01 just formatting or replacing the memory card.
It is possible that the memory of your camera got corrupted. You can try and format the memory and see if it will clear any errors and make the memory (card) available for use of the camera.
Should you want to try and recover any images stored in the memory card, it has to be a removable one that you can plug in to a card reader attached to a PC. Run data recovery software to hopefully recover whatever you can from the memory. You can also format the memory with your PC and use a disk checking utility to check for any other errors. Thereafter, if things are ok, it will be ready for use of the camera.
Hope this be of some use to you. Post back how things went or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
