I have DSC F707, MEMORY STICK ERROR, C:13:01. I called the tech support (1-888-449-SONY, 24/7) After a few minutes chatting with a computer (yes, you catually talk to the computer) I finally got a live person who instructed me to turn ON the camera, press the MENU button and format my memory stick. Now, I know this is not how one would go about formatting a memory stick, but I nevertheless followed his directions. I turned the camera ON, and pressed the MENU button in the "Record Still Images" Mode (that's the one with a picture of a camera), and suddenly it started working. I don't know how, why, etc. but it started working, all my pictures were still on the momry stick unharmed. I post my "experience" due to the mysterious nature of the problem and not because I belive that pressing the MENU button will solve anything.
How do I reformat my memory stick via my computer?
I read through all of these suggestions and this is the O N L Y one that worked. Thank you for spending your time to help me solve this problem Mike. I was so worried that I had a broken camera- It only needed to have the memory stick re-formatted. I lost everything on it but that wasn't a problem for me. READERS PLEASE do NOT listen to people who tell you to BANG your camera on the ground. That's a really good way to break it. N O T a good idea. Completely unnecessary.
This worked by not like mentioned; I lost 43 pictures, but gained a 128mb memory stick. Good Luck all...
This worked for me on my Mavica FD200. Thank you. Mike
