Hi, I have the DSC-P31 model and after trying different types of memories I noticed that this camera will only allow up to 128mb memory. I you try any bigger it won't work. There is one memory on the market that has a switch and splits a 256mb in half so the camera thinks is 128mb but you have to switch it from A to B on the back of the memory itself.

To make things easier, you should buy a card reader. There are different types.
MS Pro Card Reader - Is ONLY for the sony memory cards
Multi Card Reader - Will read sD, xD, Ms Pro Duo, Ms Pro, Compact Flash, Smart Media, etc.
Sony has a new memory stick out called the memory stick pro duo. Your P73 does not take this. The P73 takes the Memory Stick Pro. Which is a longer stick. You can go out to best buy or ritz camera and buy a card reader (Memory Stick Pro) and stick your memory card into the card reader and stick that into your USB port on your computer. Since it is USB, this will require NO SOFTWARE.
Your camera came out in 2004. Vista did not come out until early 2007. A lot of software does not work with vista.
Unfortunately, there is no way to change the internal card reader in the camera to accept higher density memory cards. You can find the memory stick compatibility list here: https://esupport.sony.com/perl/support-info.pl?&info_id=12 . Scroll down to the Cybershot N Series camera list. The maximum capacity memory stick is 4 GB memory stick pro or M2 Memory stick Pro. For the Memory Stick Duo, it looks like those have a maximum capacity of 2 GB.
Well alot of the time there is a issue with the formating that the camera does on the stick and also when formating it on the computer it formats it another way as well. some in FAT and some in FAT32 this is ushally a error for the most part I would definatly plug your duo stick into a card reader and then go to my computer and the find the drive that the stick is in and right click on it and go to properties and do a error check on the stick to make sure that there is no errors. and if you can defragment after the scan then by all means do it and then format the card and try it and hopefully it will work out to your advantage.
*note this problem seems to only happen with the non branded duo sticks not the sony branded ones.*
the 101 is the folder number the pics are stored in-what model sony is it?-are you sure the camera is not recording to the internal memory which may be full-did you try to format memory card or reset the camera to factory defaults?-if none of these work may be bad camera-are you using a memory stick pro or pro duo card?
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.
