Hi, I'm also seeing this error message on my screen but I'm also seeing a strange mark on my disk. Looks like the writing system is not working continuously and is leaving clear spaces which is causing that the disk is not recognized on further photo sessions. Would someone recomend a preventive maintenance? Best Regards.
I got a the same error my camera would not focus we use it for work and I was going to go buy a new camera today I wacked it on the desk a few times now it works fine. I find this an ironic way to fix electronic equipment. I sincerely doubt Sony would recommend this Thanks for the posts I would not have thought to wack my camera to get it to work.
I have a DSC-W1 and have been having the same problem for a couple of months..even ent it back to Sony, who told me I had a faulty Memory Stick! Anyway, I have discovered that if I push the memory stick up as I insert it I don't have a problem...works every single time! MAybe it will stop working soon but as for now it is working like a charm! Good luck!
-----3RD POST continued----- (this is not my entire post.. for some reason this site is blocking my post because it thinks I have illegal content in it) So for my remaining two posts, got over to that other forum I previously mentioned, and I'll try to post the link to the picture here: http://img221.imageshack.us/img221/3709/sonydscp8c1301error4wh.jpg
-----2ND POST----- HOORAY!!! IT'S FIXED!! So after doing everything I said I did in the above post, I decided to open the case and have a look at the connectors. WARNING: Do not attempt this unless you have a very small set of philips and flat head screwdrivers, 5x jewelers loupe, fine needle nose pliers, a very small set of tweezers, a working knowledge of electronics and FPC (flat printed circuit) connectors and can accept the fact that you may actually break your camera more than it is already. Remove the battery and memory card. (cont' next post)
-----1ST POST----- WOW! I can't believe all of these differen't camera models coming up with the same error code and Sony doesn't know what it means. Fock Sony! Ok, obviously I am here because my DSC-P8 3.2M Cybershot is doing the same thing, "C:13:01 memory stick error". Here's my chain of events: I was previewing the last picture I took using the left arrow, and noticed it was way too dark, so I deleted it. Right when I selected OK, the error message C:13:01 was flashing on the screen. There were pictures on the card still, and with my built-in card reader on my PC I was able to transfer them over and they all look fine. Here's a list of all of the things I've tried and the camera still displays the C:13:01 error: 1) ejecting and re-inserting the 256MB Pro card. 2) Locking/Unlocking the 256MB card. 3) Tried an old 16MB card and it does the same thing. I know this card is good too, so I suspect a hardware failure with the camera. Most likely the interface to the memory card. 4) Formatted the 16MB card with the PC. 5) Formatted the 16MB card with Sony's Memory Card Formatter. 6) Tried putting my camera in various USB connect modes with the cable, i.e. "normal mode" and "ptp mode". 7) Cannot format the card in the camera. When I try it just displays the error, further proof the memory card interface is the problem. 8) Anything people suggested above that could possibly help didn't - I think I covered them all in my list here. I sort of wish I had purchased the 4-year warranty at Best Buy now, but then again...I don't feel that I ever needed it. I have treated my camera very well and it has served me well for over 3 years, 5500 shots and many videos. I've never had to replace the battery and the charge still lasts for over an hour. The extra warranty was $60 on top of a $400 camera with a $100 memory card, but that would be $60 now that I can spend towards a better camera. I've been wanting to get a new digital SLR with external flash. The smaller point-and-shoot cameras are nice, but I've always battled with the dim lighting. If it's not sunny, or very well lit, it's almost impossible to take a shot that doesn't require some photoshoping later. Not to mention the graininess is hard to fix. I realize I may still suffer from this same situation with a more expensive camera, but the answer is out there somewhere. I hope Sony can own up to this error code and everyone here can get their cameras fixed, but I'm not going to hold my breath on that one. Canon and Nikon do look very tempting :)
I kept getting the error message also, and the camera would freeze when I tried to delete the pictures off. It took me an hour to sort it out, clicking everything possible. On setup, I changed the REC folder, and hey presto! it works again, no more error messages.
Yep, the infamous C:13:01 error once again. Losing all my pics! Solution? NEVER buy Sony again. Never recommend Sony again. Use Sony as an example of what not to buy. My Sony Cybershot was the most expensive $500 sony ever made.

You can't repair it. You could return it. Memory Stick Pro doesn't work, so buy a memory card *without the pro*.They just aint compatible.
