How to format memorystick (Sony)

Does Anybody know how to format a Sony memorystick? I bought a 128 Mbyte.
For a wihile it went ok. By accident removed directorys from the stick. tried a format (fat) under windos2000. Now the camera (Sony P50) gives: Format Error

you need to format with your camera , not with computer.

You need to format it again, this time be sure to select the "FAT16" option as the default for Win2K is FAT32 and digicams only understand FAT16.

Still problems
I tried a FAT (16) format under W2K, still problems. The camera can't acces the card.

I tried also a format on the camera:same result, the camera can't reach the memory stick.

On the PC its no problem, i can read and write to it.

Anybody know if there is a special program from Sony or Sandisk to solve the problem?
