I am using 1gb memory card in my Sony DSC-650 digital camera. But whenever I take a snap, it is displaying 'Foramt Error' in the screen but the remaining picture count decremented. If I try to read the file from memory card, it is showing Format Erroe Access denied. This is not happening without Memory Card. WHat is the solution for this?

This error indicates a memory problem.
The camera can't read or write data to the memory card. Try turning off and on the camera again, or take out and reinsert the memory card several times. Also remove and reinsert the battery.
It also can mean the memory card is not formatted, or there is a format error for an other reason. Format the internal memory or the memory card.
It also could mean the memory card is damaged and can't be used any more. Then you have to place a new memory card.
I hope something will help.
This is also in you user manual.
Format error display shows memory card is unstable and need to be format through format option in Camera menu. Format memory card, if that does not fix the issue, try another memory card in camera and check this memory card in another camera just to make sure either camera got problem or memory card is bad.
Take out memory card from camera, turn it On and check does it show format error? If yes, press Home, Memory option and format internal memory. If camera does not show format error then put back memory card in and press Home, Memory card option and format it. This will delete all files/ data and will refresh memory card, take some pictures and check. If after formatting, still format error exist, put new memory card.
i have the same problem..
I have a Sony Cybershot DSC T70 and it keeps saying "Reinsert memory stick" whenever I turn on the camera or slide down the camera lid. Also, whenever I try to view the pictures on my laptop it shows "Please reinsert the memory stick" something along those lines. As I have been researching for the solution, I would have to format the memory card. However, I wouldn't want to lose the pictures as I just took many as from the holiday last week. The only problem is the memory card, I tried using another memory card and it works fine with the camera. There is nothing wrong with the camera.\r\nCan someone please help me how to solve the memory stick problem? It would be great. Ty.
There's probably something else taking up a ton of space on that memory card. Format it with the camera if you aren't worried about losing data. Otherwise, plug it into a computer with a memory card reader and see what's taking up the space.
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.
