I have used the stick, took pictures, and downloaded pictures on Craigslist and now all of the sudden it says Memory Stick formatting error. Can it be fixed and will I be able to get my pictures off of the Stick. I do not know how to format the stick at all.

You could try running "ZAR", "recuva", or some other file recovery software on the drive to recover your files. Then if it's a memory stick for a Sony camera? You could try this to format " www.youtube.com/watch?v=7jZXyyWv3T0 ". –  jAce Jul 23 '14 at 12:38
