It could be a faulty memory card, but a more likely cause is that this stick isn't formatted yet. you can format it usually by bringing up the camera menu, then going to tools and format. you can also format it by using windows and a cardreader or your camera.

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.

My Sony Cybershot DSC-H50 shows error code C:13:01 when the either of the current memory sticks I am using, is inserted. However, when I take out the memory stick out, and put on the camera, it shows the "internal memory full".But it does not gives any option to format it. The only one button on the panel is working and so the option of formating could not be done. I even tried to connect it to P.C. It shows four pictures.

We found an old Sony Cybershot DSC - S30 camera laying around in our office. I was going to let my young son play with it as he would like a digital camera. I kept getting the memory stick error message. I ordered a new memory stick PRO Duo for it with a 4GB disk. It still shows the error message. Neither the old 4MB stick or the new Duo stick will allow the camera to format the memory stick. Any ideas??
