Having problems with your Sony Mavica MVC-FD87 Digital Camera ?

Format Disc Error


\015 I have never had to format the disc before. When I tried to use my camera last weekend it kept coming up to format the disc. Can you tell me how to fix this and if I select to format the disc will it delete any pictures I have on it?\015

Answers :

Try a new preformatted disc, if this wont boot, your drive is stuffed, you may be able to format this disc in the camera but then it wont load in your computer, so its not much good, cost of repair will exceed cam value. dump it

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.

Format error I have a Samsung digimax A40 camera. I 've just purchased a Lexar 4gb SDHC card. When I've tried to format the card for use, the screen comes up initially with "card error", then a screen to format - yes/no. When I press on yes, it takes a few moments and then comes up with Format Error, and turns itself off. Any suggestions on how to overcome this? We are heading away on holiday soon and wanted a bigger sd card as I currently only have a 256mb card in it. Thanks, Tracey.
