Having problems with your Sony Digital Cameras ?

Hi I tried formatting in the camera also but its not happening?Is there any way i can recovery the memory stick or i lost the stick?


Answers :

You don't say what camera you have so i am going to have to do some guessing.

Is this a new memory stick? If so, the reason you cannot format it might be because it is too high a capacity. Cameras often cannot cope with the larger memory cards now available. If it is one that used to work in the camera, then you should check it for problems as below.

If you have a card reader attached to your computer that can take the stick, you can format or check it in the computer, using the system's disk drive functions. This will tell you if the memory is usable or broken. If it still won't work in your camera, then it is probably because of the reason above, but it will still be usable for other things.
