Ok, everyone with a technological brain that I do NOT have. seems everything I touch that is electronic eventually does not continue to work. Tobias Gelston and Sony and Techno peeps please help.
I am in Hawaii using my A73 and A6000 everything fine until this morning I get an error code that says Reinsert the memory card that you were using. I did.

Then another code Writing to memory card was not completed correctly. Recover Data Slot 2 (my slot 1 does not work with the new cards) enter/cancel... I selected enter.
Then another code. .. Execute? this may damage data that was added or edited on another device. Enter/cancel.

I took out the card and inserted another one to not lose the photo's. Same codes on next 6 cards.
All brand new Micro SD 64gb from Costco. All I did previously was format them in the A73 before leaving home..... Went to A6000 and within 10 minutes same thing. The regular cards do not work either.

Now neither camera works. I cannot use the Menu to factory reset. None of the buttons work. 2 dead cameras.

PLEASE HELP Thanks so much.

Do I dare put the cards into my computer to get the photos off of them. Luckily I did every night so just today is lost. But if the cards are infected somehow will it mess up my computer too.

In Iceland 2 weeks ago the non Sony batteries would not work in the A73 and they always have before. So confused. Maybe all this is a sign.

Hoping they just need to rest but I really am not using them that much as I am here with my Family, its been raining, and dad spent half the day in the ER due to a tumble. So no overuse but have been using rapid fire for waves. But I was not near the water for spray

Thanks again Everyone, Seems I am always asking for help. I do appreciate your expertise though. Truly
Jamie K

Got to ask. Why are you using Micro SD cards? I hate anything that uses any adapters as its just one more device to fail.

They were cheaper twice the storage for same price. I've used them before with no issues. Not sure now.

You don't suppose the humidity there has anything to do with it? Did you get close to a waterfall or get caught in the rain.x

You're in Hawaii? Which island? Go someplace that sells full size SD cards, not the mini and see if it works. I suspect it is an incompatibility between the .05 mini card adapter and your Sony.

I tried a micro SD card with adapter from BJ's in my A6000 awhile back and couldn't get it to write to card. The only thing I can suggest is to pull the battery and hope it clears the screen. Then try a regular SD card formatted in the camera.

I tried micro SD once. It never worked right. I went back to regular SD.

Take the camera into a local island camera store .., and ask what the “F” .. over ....your problem will be solved ..

I would agree with the suggestion of trying regular SD cards. It sounds like there are issues with the adapter causing an error when the camera tries to write to the Micro SD card.

I have a vague recollection of seeing something like this before. Is it possible that you formatted or otherwise edited the cards on a PC rather than in the camera?

I doubt that a virus would infect both a camera and a PC though I suppose anything is possible. It would be interesting to inspect the cards on a PC to see whether they can be read.

My first thought. I hate those tiny cards.

I don't think there is any fear of plugging into the PC to extract the photos.

I am sure it is only in unique cases, but a lot of people say to just purchase the sony cards made for the camera and move on. cost a little more but likely no issues with the cards.

I assume you format the cards in the camera before you start using them.
also a few years ago I worked with nikon support and discovered there was a way to reset my d100 to factory defaults by pushing certain buttons. is there a way to do this on sony cameras??
