I purchased a Sony cybershot DSC- S930 and inserted the Lexar memory stick (supposedly compatible with a sony camera) and upon turning the camera on there is an error message stating there is not internal memory (as the internal memory only has room for 2 photos). I cannot seem to be able to use the memory (8Gb) and have tried to go into Setup - Format- but there are no options to format the stick, only to erase the internal memory. Any help would be appreciated!
