I have Sony DSC-S40 camera with MS 1Gb, when i switch it on i have "access" then error message says" Memory stick error" and flashing "C:13:01" and I can't take photoes or...

Hello and Welcome to Fixya!

C:13:01 memory stick error message indicates a Self diagnostic message.In C:13:01 the issue may be with the Internal Memory or with the Memory Stick.

To solve it try the following solutions

Format error with the Internal Memory which can be corrected by formatting the Internal Memory.
If it is issue with memory stick then turning the power off and on again or taking out and inserting the "Memory Stick" several times may help in resolving the issue. Error may be because of Unformatted "Memory Stick" which can be resolved by formatting the Memory Stick in the Camera If it not remove by formatting in the camera then connect it to PC and tried to format it again but either FAT instead of FAT32 which is the regular format and then reinserted the memory stick and formatted it with the camara. Now it will be solved if it still exist then it means Memory Stick is broken or not compatible which can be resolved by inserting a new compatible Memory stick


I hope this solution helps you

I have a cyber shot DSC-S80 which has been working fine for ages. However I deleted some photos from the memory stick whilst it was in my computer and now I get the 'memory stick error' message flashing...

Try to format memory stick with the camera's facilities. Maybe the camera doesn't recognize the stick.
You can try another memory stick to know exactly what it happened.

When i turn the camera on it says format error and i cant take any pictures

Please take out memory stick from camera and power up camera and check still gives format error?
If no further error then put memory stick back in camera and press Menu >> Format >> OK to format memory stick. That will delete all data on memory stick and refresh it for new photos.

Format error on my sony cybershot dsc-s730

Format error comes because memory stick has an error. Please format memory stick by going in to Menu>> format>>OK

If error still comes then memory stick is bad and need to be replaced with new one.

Sony

there might be a problem with the file system you are using with with memory stick..insert it into card reader > format it with fat 32 file system..and insert it again to solve your problem.....if problem still persist .insert your memory card into mobile and goto your memory card > now select option > there you will see format memory card > so it will format your memory card with correct file system that your mobile wants.....

Memory Stick Error

Have you tried re-formatting the cards? If you can't with the camera you should be able to with a card reader. It's probably the camera, unfortunately, but this is worth a shot...
