A memory stick is a type of memory cards used in Sony digital camera. Sony designed a family of memory cards for the digital data storage in cameras, digital music players, camcorders, VAIO laptops, PDAs and other portable devices from Sony. Since the memory stick is a proprietary Sony product, it is compatible with a range of products from Sony. However, even though the memory stick is very reliable and durable, the sticks can throw many errors and that results in many data loss. For such situation it is very important for the users to keep an updated backup of the data in the stick or can use a third party image recovery software.

As a practical scenario, a user may encounter a format error while trying to access the pictures in the Sony camera:
“card has wrong format. Press OK to format”.

And when user press on OK to format the card another error message appears as:
“Unable to format card”.

The camera becomes unresponsive after the appearance of above error. This format error in Sony camera might occur due the following reasons:
