Hey, I have tried so many different approaches as to how to solve this error. I have a DSC-F707. I have 3 - 128mb memory sticks and 1 - 64mb memory stick, all Sony and all the sudden non of them were reading it would pop up the same error. I tried the ERASER, I tried messing with the little prongs inside the camara that touch the memory sticks, I tried inserting each memory stick rapidly for more than 10 times and nothing ever worked. My last resort was a post on page 4 at the bottom about someone that bangged the camara a bit out of frustration and fixed it. BANG THE CRAP OUT OF YOUR CAMARA!, in everywhich angle. The first 5 blows didnt do it so I tried different areas to bang the camara and after like 10 times hitting it medium and softly with my palm it finally started reading ALL the memory sticks. I formatted them quickly just incase, but I dont think that that was the problem with my camara. USE THIS ALTERNATIVE AS YOUR LAST IF YOU DONT WANT TO PAY MONEY. I strongly recommend banging your camara to an extent that you dont break it if all else fails. HUGO

I am amazed.... The 'Rodney King' approach actually worked!!! (on our FD2000) I'm the one in our workgroup who is constantly trying to **protect** the electronic equipment in our office from this type of "troubleshooting". Being a reasoned, scientific method kind of guy, this kind of situation drive me nuts! I'm the one who is always trying to decode laments of "this thing is broken". Can we be more specific? Geeeze, I hope no one saw me do this!!!! Thanks!!!

I got the C:13:01 error in my Sony DSC-P93 30 minutes back. I was able to retrieve the photos using a card reader. I was using a 2GB Memory Stick Pro Duo when this problem started. Tried a 256 MB Sanddisk card and got the same error. Interestingly a 32 MB Sony card did not have this problem. Finally I tried hitting the camera and the problem got resolved. The "Technical Tap" works :-) Thanks for the suggestions. Prime

Who would have thought! Thank you for this advice. I laughed when I read it and thought "it can't be that easy". Sure enough, I smacked the camera on different sides about 10 times and now it works. You saved me some money. THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!!!!! =0)

This is a memory stick formatting problem, not a camera issue. I stuck a 1G stick in my Mavica, I have 10 of them of various models. I formatted in my computer to no avail. You can't format in the camera with the error code flashing. Finally I got one of my cameras to accept the stick and formatted it in the camera and all is now well. Floppy disks have the same problem if you format in a computer or have an image on the disk that you have changed in a photo program; the disk has to be formatted in the camera to work.
