Re: Mavica FD95 Error Msg C:13:01
A Cxxxx error normally can be fixed by the user. I suggest you remove the battery pack AND the button cell (I suppose the FD95 has one) and leave it without both for at least half an hour. I would think that after that, it should be ok except that you'll have to set the clock and some other preferences again.
Hope this helps.

Sorry for unfortunate incident. I had similar issue before and I have found some solutions have worked.
1.Clean the lens of the built in CD writer of the camera and try again. Also wipe the surface of the CD gently with a piece of smooth clean cloth.
2.If solution 1 doesnt work, try installing the Adaptec DirectCD utility which comes with installation CD of the camera. After installation you can access the unfinalized content of the CD, and you can finalize on computer.
If issue still persist please post so we can seek further solution Good Luck
This is a common problem with the Mavica FD95. There is a little switch in the drive slot to sense the write protect tab on the disk.
If you hold open the drive door without a disk in, you should see this switch where the write protect tab goes. Try operating the switch with a matchstick a few dozen times to attemp to clean the contacts. If that doesn't work then Very carefully let a drop of switch cleaner run into the switch and try operating it a few times then let it dry. Failing that you might want to open the camera to get to the terminals on the switch and test it with a multimeter.
If the switch is faulty and a replacement is not availble then you could just short(or disconnect) it to fool the drive into thinking any disk is writable.
Any C13 error is a media error. First try formatting a blank disk in that camera itself. If that doesnt work, try blowing out the disk slot with compressed air. I wouldnt use canned air like you can get at office supply places because if the can is tilted some of the propellant can come out and gunk up the inside of your gear. If dry compressed air doesnt work, have it serviced by an authorized Sony repair shop.
Try setting your picture size to a smaller size. If your pictures are used mostly for being viewed on a computer, or for smaller print sizes like 3x5 or 4x6, you should not lose any quality. The smaller file size does not take as long to write to the disk.
I also have gotten this problem.
I have found that while using the Mediastick adaptor, I get this error when the adaptor's batteries get low. The adapter needs enough power to write to the memory stick, otherwise it writes too slow with low power, thus resulting in the disk error. Hope that helps you.
Basically you bought the wrong camera for your needs. The 95 can not do well under the conditions you describe. The ISO is fixed and to low for the amount of light you have available. The viewfinder begins to darken after the lens is wide open and the shutter speed is increased further. There are three possible cures. More light, not possible in your situation, faster lens or higher ISO, again not possible with your camera. Maybe you could convince them to play in the dayight. :)
My flash went out twice on my FD-95. The first time it was fixed under warranty and it was the bulb. This time I haven't fixed since I have my 707 now. It still works with the external flash like yours did before you dropped it.
If possible I would try and buy another external flash since your time is short. When I had my camera fixed under warranty it was just about to run out and they, the camera shop, told me I should get it fixed now instead of out of warranty because the cost could be hundreds just in labor alone.
