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??
