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??

When I recently turned on my camera (D-630 Zoom) to take a picture, I got the message titled Card Setup, with two options "Power off" and "Format". I turned the camera off, took out the memory card (1GB) and put it back in, as I did the last (and only) time this happened, about two years ago. But it has not worked, and I have been getting this message with the two options for a few days. Any ideas? Thank you.

Grinding noise I had my cd500 fixed in November. The little piece that holds the cd in came off. They fixed that, but then when I got it back I was still getting format errors. They gave it back and told me to only use mavica discs. And since then that is what I've been doing. However I am still hearing a loud grinding noise when the picture is being burned. Do you know what it is? I am wondering if I need to take it back in.

Brightness I recently bought the Olympus Stylus 700 and took it on a vacation with me and it worked fine, but shortly after returning, the camera began to take extremely bright pictures, in fact if there is any natural light (not produced by the flash), there is nothing but the vague outlines of some objects. I adjusted the shutter speed to little avail and even thought formatting the memory card would help. Now I have no idea what else to do, aside from taking it back for its warranty.
