SOURCE: Sony A100 - Buttons won't work
Simular problem, camera will not take pictures in auto mode, after turning on remove and reinstall lens and it does works, till next shot off. Also after taking picture displays the picture taken, then I push scroll and can look at all pic on memory card. At the time I push "menu" and can enter and edit all camera functions. I know it is a round about way, but beats paying sony $225 flat fee to fix something wich should be a free reapir, because the camera is good, I think it is a faulty software problem only. Trying to install the latest firmware does not cure the problem.

SOURCE: Format Error in Sony Cybershot
I think I solve the problem wih my sony camera.
After readin almost all posts on this problem I lost hope to save my photos from that "Format error" stick. So first I start to format the memory with the camera, after 5-6 minutes it says everything is formated. I restarted the camera but again there was a memory error message, but this time the blue screen has gone and I can see where lens are pinting. After that i start the format function again on my camera, but after a few seconds (just at the moment when it starts to format) i took put the batteries. When I put the batteries again the memory stick pro duo was empty. So I downloaded a program for memory restore (Rescover my Photos) Here is a link with program with C.. R... A.. C... K... http://www.2baksa.net/news/27705/
So that program found all the pictures and the movies that were on that stick. You must take a deep scan to the memory and have a full battery life to take out the pictures. So, good luck.

Hi! I just had the same problem with my Sony A100, when I tried two different CF cards. I was getting the same error message as reported above: "Unable to use card" then "Format?" then that format fails. Thinking the camera
is broken, I checked online camera repair sites and also called Sony
directly. Sony's flat rate, and that of PrecisionCamera is $228 to fix
CF card failure. Then my daughter said, "the CF card in my room works
fine in the camera" - and lo and behold - it does. The CF card that
works is brand PQI and is marked Hi-Speed 60 2Gb. The cards that do NOT
work are marked SanDisk Ultra II 1.0Gb and SanDisk 128 Mb. So my advice
is, before you give up on the camera as broken, try a number of
different CF cards first.
The second cause of CF failure is if someone has pushed a CF card in the wrong way. That can bend one or more of the tiny metal contact pins in the CF socket in the camera. Look carefully to see that all the pins are straight up. [I don't know how one can straighten these pins, or if the whole socket would need to be replaced...but at least you can determine the cause of the CF failure.]
Best regards - Michael
