a6000 for Webcam - Remove "No Memory Card" message at startup

Recommended Posts

Sony a6000 used as a webcam with CamLink and dummy battery.  Every time I start the camera I get a "No Memory Card.  Cannot Play" error.  The only way to bypass is to half-press the shutter button.  Issue is the camera is in an inconvenient place to do this every time.  I've tried to stick several SD cards in and just leave it, but that doesn't work.  Error remains, and half-press solution is the only thing that works.

Seems the camera is not starting in capture mode, but in playback mode. 

  • Can I change settings to start in capture mode?  (I leave it in Movie mode)
  • I don't have a Release w/o Card option in the settings.  Is there something similar?
  • Any other workaround so I can simply turn on the camera and go?

Thanks in advance.
