Re: Sony Mavica FD-71 Trouble code C13-01
Don't feel bad, the same thing happened to me on my Mavica FD91. The floppy drive had finally died! I called SONY, and they told me it would be over $180 to repair it, and couldn't give me a definite turn around time. I did some searching, and was referred to Tim Driver.
I shipped him the camera. He received it Monday morning, and had it back out to me on Tuesday. Everything is great. He only charged me $150!
Tim is an honest guy, and he knows what he's doing. My Wife and I were a little worried about sending our only camera and $150 to an individual rather than a company. But everything was great, he kept in contact with us and let us know everything as it went along.
Let me know if you need his number/e-mail.

I'm sorry to inform you that the MVCFD85 Camera does not have a Memory Stick slot. The medium using in the Mavica FD camera is floppy disc.
The MSAC-FD2M floppy disk adapter can be used in some FD Mavica digital cameras. With the help of the above mentioned Floppy disc adapter, you can insert a memory stick inside the adapter and insert it in to the floppy disk drive on the camera.
The write protection is on the floppy diskette itself. Make sure the little sliding latch is covering the hole on the right side of the diskette. If you see through two holes on the diskette it is on write protect.
Hey jadyjo, You need to format the floppy disc by selecting file, then disc tool, and then format in the menu system. Instructions on how to do this are on page 52 of your user manual. Remember that formatting the disc will erase any images on it even protected ones. I hope this helps! Sincerely, Allan Go Ahead. Use Us.
This is an early floppy drive model yes?
Drive error could refer to corrupt floppy disc or a failure of the drive.
Check the disc angle first - new disk formatted to camera.
If it is not that - then buy another camera
A repair I guess will not be an option -but checkout Sony first.
