Unable to access files on SONY memory stick

I have a SONY USB memory stick (2 G) that initially worked fine on any laptop Sony, HP, Acer) but seemed to automotically change to a different drive letter depending on which computer I was using. However, now when I plug it in it is visible on 'my computer' as a removable disk, but when i try to open it I get the message 'please insert disk into drive F.' This occurs regardless of which drive letter I assign or the computer I use. I have also tried to right click on the disk drive to use the 'search' and 'explore' options but no luck. The memory stick itself does not have any buttons on it that i can push to reset or unlock. Any suggestions?

Hello. Windows will automatically give it the next drive letter available whenever you install it on a computer. That being said, it sounds like the stick itself is bad. It won't work on any computer so that rules out a computer issue. Since you cannot access it once it recognizes the drive, the media has become corrupted or gone bad. Try right clicking on the drive and formatting it but if that doesn't work, I'm afraid its toast.

How do i get pictures off my sony memory stick pro duo with adapter on to my hp laptop

You will need to purchase an adapter that will fit the SD card slot or USB connector. When connected, use the computer to open the files from your memory card and save them on your computer.

These adapters are available from big box stores and online from eBay and Amazon.

Ok so my sony viao vgn nr120e caught a virus. I finally ordered the recovery cds but my cd drive no longer works. I really do not want to replace the cd drive. Is there anyway to bypass the recovery cds...

Buy a 4GB (or larger) USB memory-stick.
Connect it to a different computer.
Copy all the files from the recovery-CDs onto the USB memory-stick.
Move the memory-stick to your computer, and try to install from the files on the USB memory-stick.

Problems with my Sony Cybershot W210

1) Make sure that you're not using more than 4 GB memory stick pro duo with the camera. Then try to remove the memory stick and capture 2 images in the internal memory and turn OFF and turn ON the Camera and check. If the error message comes, its the issue with the Camera itself and requires service after resetting. to reset the Camera, select Initialize under Main Settings 1 menu under Settings. if the issue persists, the camera may require service
If its working fine, transfer all the images to the Computer and format the memory stick. Formatting will delete all the contents. If the issue persists, memory stick should be replaced.

I have hp photosmart 1315 printer but the lead i have got does not attach to the laptop, any suggestions? also when i plug my sony memory card into the side it says card access error so i cant even print...

I assume you mean that the connectors of the cable you are using aren't fitting either into the the laptop. I went to and looked up the printer's specifications. It seems like a USB 1.1 (but not a USB 2.0) cable should work. Here's the reference:

Product Specifications

Since you say the cable doesn't attach to your laptop, make sure the USB connector is correct side up before trying to insert it (I apologize if this seems too obvious, but I've spent plenty of time wondering why a USB cable wouldn't fit into this port or that only to realize that I was holding the connector upside down).

As far as the memory card error, there are a number of different causes, mostly based on the card manufacturer. You say it's a Sony card, so that narrows it down some. I found a web page that addresses general memory card error issues:

Resolving a Card Access Error

I'm going to post links to the several other web pages I found that are related to card access errors, just to make sure you have as much information as I can provide:

Card Access Error when using Lexar CompactFlash

Compact Flash Card Not Recognized by Printer

Card Not Recognized Error Displays on Control Panel

Memory Stick Memory Card Error

Most of these don't have to do with your Sony card, but it couldn't hurt to go over them if the suggestions in the initial link don't work out. Sorry to bombard you with so much information, but you never know what piece of data might hold the key to resolving this issue.

Good luck and post back your results.

Problem accessing memory stick

I had the same problem. I bought a 2 gig memory pro-duo with the adapter and it gave me that error even though it fit just fine. I then tried a 512 memory stick and a 1 gig memory stick and neither one worked it gave me the C:13:01 error code. So I found out the hard way that the camera will not read it. The Sony DSC-S85 will not take memory above a 128. Try the Lexar 64MB memory stick. I just bought 4 and they work perfectly fine.
