I had the same Mavica 1301 disk error. Did everything suggested above. No luck. Took the camera apart - still no luck. Finally, I took a little screwdriver and stuck it inside the diskette opening and ROTATED THE LITTLE ARM THAT SPINS THE DISKETTE. That did it! You can see the plate rotate as you move the arm ... just make sure you move it around. I don't know if the rotating plate was stuck or what, but the camera worked fine after that. Good luck!

Jim, Does it matter how far you move it around? I see the arm you are referring to, but I'm not sure how far to turn it. Thanks alot, Nick
