Insert your memory card to pc then format it. once done, reinsert to your cam. and it will work again. Cons: it will erase all your datas Pros: you can use it again and no need to buy new one

Welcome to FixYa.

There 3 possible causes why do you received an error message " reinsert memory card"

1 The inserted Memory Stick media is not supported for use with the camera.
2 The terminals on the Memory Stick media are dirty.
3 The Memory Stick media is damaged

1 Ensure you are using the supported type and capacity of Memory Stick media for use with the camera
2 Use a clean pencil eraser and lightly rub the Memory Stick terminals to remove any oxidation or dirt build-up
3 Use different Memory Stick media

I hope this steps wil help you to resolve your isuues.

Thank you for using FixYa.

When you need to delete the photos from the SD memory card, do not use your computer to do it. Use your camera to format the SD memory card.
To fix this problem, insert the SD memory card in your camera then go to the camera's Menu and format the SD memory card.

You can use a card reader to copy files from your computer to the memory card. Be aware that pictures that were not taken by the same type of camera, or were edited in any way, may not display on the camera.

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.
