Memory Stick Issues


I have issues with the memory stick. Every time I insert the memory stick, error c:13:01 appears. I have tried inserting in and out the memory really fast as it said on other sites as how to fix the problem, but it doesn't work. I will like to know if there's another way to fix this problem. Thank you

Hi,
    This error code is for Memory Stick. the Countermeasure are :
Format the “Memory Stick” or internal
memory.

CAUSE :
“Memory Stick” or internal memory is
unformatted.

Thanks for using fixya.

you must get a lavender colored sony stick. the black sticks will not work on older sonys. they do make them and only go up to 128 mb usually around 20 dollars.

when i turn my camra on its does nothing it has a black screen and it don't turn off then when i take the memory stick out it works and turns off with no problem

I had the same problem, you can solve this by:
1. Push the card multiple times in/out the slot or
2. Use a little bit of contact spray on a small piece of tissue, rap this in the length around the memory card just 1 time. Be carefull not to make it to thick that it get stuck in the slot. Then push the card multiple times in/out the slot or
3. Cut a small strip of waterproof sanding paper (grain: 400 or more - the surface feels just like paper, and is just a thin as paper) just as wide as the card or slot. Cut a strip of plastic (eg.old credit card) also just as wide as the card or slot. Rap the sanding paper in the length of the strip and insert this in and out the slot. But!! ... make sure you stay at the upper side of the contacts, don't worry just do it carefully, don't use force and sand the contacts a couple of times. This way work for me, finally!!

may be it is not compatible with camera.
