Memory Stick Formatting Error - Sony Cyber Shot DSC T-20
Hi all, I need a help. I took more than 500 pictures in my honey moon's travel with my DSC T-20 and after that a message of error appears and I'm not able to see the pictures in the machine neither to transfer it to the computer. The message that appears is "Memory Stick Formatting Error". When I plugged the USB Cable in the computer the Windows says that the Memory Stick is not formatted and ask if I like to format it. Of course that I didn't format however now I don't know what I should do.... Please help, I'm desparate...
Re: Memory Stick Formatting Error - Sony Cyber Shot DSC...
I have had the same problem. Contact your camera via USB to your PC. Click on MENU. You do see "USB Connect" and "folder" at the bottom. Make sure that it stays on "USB Connect" click on round button in the middle and you will get 4 options. It probably stays on AUTO. Select PTP and see what happens. Adobe Photo Album started up and I got to see the pictures till the moment that the stick got the format error. I lost a couple of pictures, but got a lot back.
I'm not sure what the problem is, however realized that if this happens again. Shut your camera. Start it up again. Go into MENU, SET UP, Memory stick tool, chnage Rec folder and create a new. This way you keep the folders smaller and do not loose that many pictures.

YOUR MODE SWITCH IS SET TO VIDEO AND WHAT YOU ARE TAKING ARE ACTUALLY SHORT VIDEO CLIPS, INSTEAD OF PICTURES! IF YOU WANT TO TAKE PHOTOGRAPHS YOU NEED TO RESET THE MODE SWITCH TO A SETTING OTHER THAN VIDEO. SOMETHING LIKE SCENERY, FLOWERS,PEOPLE, ETC. YOU SHOULD SEE THESE ON THE MODE SWITCH, YOU MAY ALSO GO ONLINE TO SONY DSC-W50 AND VIEW THE USER MANUAL AND STUDY THE DIFFERENT MODES OF PHOTOS. IF YOU STILL NEED ADDITIONAL HELP REPLY TO: ARCLIGHT1217
