Yeah, if you format the memory card, you will lose all data on it. try to scan memory card with updated anti virus software and always use memory card by camera to PC.

I just took so many photos with my Nikon camera . when i join memory card with my computer, it shows it's empty but its properties show that 800 MB has been used and 1.10 GB is free as mine is 2GB. Can...


When you put the card into your camera did you format it? If you didn't format the card the camera might not be saving the photos using the proper file types, hence the computer not recognizing them? Try going into the cameras menu and formatting the card and give it another shot.

Sony camera formatting disk error C:13:01 need to retrieve photos


Preformat : By Fix-shad0w

#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.

After slideshow memory stick is missing photos (not on computer)


If you put the memory stick back into the camera can you see them thru the camera menu? If so your computer's SD card port may be having issues. try using the card in another computer or use the cameras USB cable to transfer the pictures from the camera to the computer if it has one. Do other memory sticks work in the computer ok? If you cannot see them in the camera either then the pictures will be corrupted and probably cannot be recovered. Then the card will need to be formatted to erase any errors on the card. Always use the camera to format a card whenever possible...Hope that helps.

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.

I have a sony dsc-f717 took several pictures and now i get format error 13:01 and can't retrieve the photos I've took and veiwed. Help retrieving


1st, try and download the pictures via your computer and a memory card adapter. If you're computer doesn't recognize the card through an adapter,

2) go to www.ita.sel.sony.com
Search by the model number of the Memory Stick. There is Memory Stick recovery software. follow the steps for the download and recovery.

3) On new/blank memory cards, I sometimes have to format the MS in the camera first, then everything works fine.

Cannot get my photos from memory stick to progess beyond the 1st 5 photos. they keep repeating. I never had a manual.


Hi there.

1st) How did you put the photos on your stick? Did you load them from a computer, or did you load them off a camera?

If you loaded them off a camera, did you format the card before you took the pics, or before transferring them from the camera's internal memory? You have to do format the memory card from the camera menu before it will work properly.

If you used a computer, same thing, you need to format the stick before you transfer photo's to it. Try it and let me know.

Picture Error


Hi, 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.
