Re: Formatting memory stick.

You can use the MEMORY FORMAT functions to completely delete all images and options on the Memory Card, including protected images. * The format function restores the Memory Card to its initial state. * The Memory Card supplied with this camcorder has been formatted already. Attention If you execute the MEMORY FORMAT function, all images will be erased completely and erased images cannot be recovered. 1. Set the mode switch to MEMORY CARD. 2. Set the power switch to PLAYER mode. 3. Press the MENU button. 4. Turn the MENU DIAL to highlight MEMORY and press the ENTER button. The sub menu will appear. 5. Select FORMAT from the list and press the ENTER button. 6. "ALL FILES ARE DELETED! FORMAT REALLY?" appears on the screen. 7. Using the MENU DIAL, select the item. NO : To return to previous menu YES : To start formatting. 8. Press the ENTER button. If you selected the YES, COMPLETE! appears on the screen when the MEMORY CARD formatting is finished. 9. To exit the menu, push the MENU button.

Memory card error


When you tried to format, did it complete formatting? If format failed then the memory is bad. Buy a replacement. Format should be completed in the camcorder for it work right.
If format completed, and you can write to and read from the memory card on the PC, then there may be a problem with the camcorder card reader. Try blowing out the card slot with canned compressed air. (Don't use a tire inflator) And gently wipe off the contacts on the card with a QTip dipped in alcohol. Good luck.

I bought a new Memory stick for my Sony DCR-TRV320 Camcorder and when i switch my device to memory mode, it tells me "Memory Stick Error."


Check the following:
Memory Stick is inserted in correct position and orientation in camcorder. Try re-inserting several times.
Write-protect tab is switched to allow writing to memory stick (on back of memory stick)
Memory Stick is formatted in FAT file system (this should already be done except if memory stick has been formatted in a computer in a different format)
Memory Stick is not over the maximum capacity memory stick of the camcorder.
Memory Stick is not full.
Memory Stick is clean and dry.
The dcr-trv320 is a 2000 yr. model and came with a 4mb capacity stick and can probably only use up to a 128mb capacity stick or possibly 256mb. Most memory sticks you can buy today are 1GB, 4GB, 8GB etc. memory stick pro duo. and are probably incompatible. E-Bay has some of the old memory sticks like the 128mb for sale.
There is a slight possibility that static electricity discharge zapped the stick. Try another memory stick or try the stick in another device.

Error code E:31:00, hdr-xr100 camera. will not format, access harddrive, record, etc


The solution is very simple if your camera has a memory stick slot! For those who has any Sony camera with memory stick slot, try this:
1- Place the memory stick
2- Go to "Home" -> "Manage Media" (or something like that) -> And select the option to change to the memory stick, instead of HD.
3- Go to "Manage Media" again, then to "Format Media", so choose to format the HDD! - Now that you are running the camera from memory stick, you'll not have any problem to format the HD.
At least worked with me! I think it worths the try!

Need to permanently delete video


In this case, I suggest that you format the Internal Memory of the Camcorder using the Camcorder as follows:

Touch HOME -> Manage Media -> Media Format -> touch the recording Media to be formatted[INT. MEMORY] or [Memory Stick] -> YES -> YES -> OK.

Formatting the Internal Memory or Memory Stick will delete all the data saved in the Internal Memory or in the Memory Stick.

You may also refer the page # 36 in the Manual of the Camcorder for more information about this.

Please download the manual (Operating Guide) of the Camcorder from this link:

Warning in memory "FORMAT ERROR"


You could try to re-format the stick. Some cameras are a bit picky when it comes to formatting. Often they will not work unless formatted directly on the camera. You could also try formatting it under widows if you have a card reader. This may kick it into life.

Memory Stick Formatting


If you can see it as a device in windows explorer, right click it's ICON and see if you can format it. If you can format it using FAT32 NOT NTFS. This will either work or you will be no worse off. If you can not see the device in windows explorer then the stick is done and you'll need to get another.
