Memory stick recording

We have just purchased a Sony handycam and also a memory stick. When I insert the memory stick for recording and push record, it indicates no disc. What procedure do we do for memory stick recording. The book really says nothing about this.

    There is not this option, and also The salesperson at Best Buy told us you could record on the memory stick, however, Sony says you cannot record a video on a memory stick. The memory stick is only for still pictures. Thank you for your input

That means your camcorder is set to record on the disc not on the memory card. try to look on the settings on your camcorder there's an option fo you to choose like disc or memory card to be use as recording. hope that helps!

Why do I see MEMORY STICK ERROR on my Sony camcorder?


Check the memory stick for a little slide lock on the side. Make sure that is not in the locked position. This feature is there to prevent people from recording over special memories, like weddings. But sometimes during handling (or just not knowing) people accidentally switch it to "lock"

Good luck

I have a Sony Memory Stick Duo Adapter with 1 GB Memory Stick Pro Duo insert. When I put in my DCR-TRV18 camera and switch it to Memory, I get Memory Stick Error on the screen


On many cameras , the picture format that you can save on memory stick is not the same that you can have by recording on tapes. It should be the same on your handycam.

You can increase memory stick to at least 2GB, that is what sony reccomends, you can test a 4 gb to 16 gb at the shop, if it works , then buy it.

However, the quality of movies grabbed on memory stick, should be far less than the one of movies recorded on tape.

How do I get Handycam DCR-DVD305 to recod videos onto a memory stick duo pro?


It is not possible to record the videos onto a Memory Stick Duo or Pro Duo, as this Camcorder DCRDVD305 does not support video recording onto the Memory Stick.
To record the videos you may use 8cm DVD-R/DVD-RW/DVD+RW.

I loss my memory stick of Handycam DCR-TRV40E


Do not panic, yes the Sony mem stick can record, but why dont you use the proper tapes for these cameras to do your movies on? they are readily available in all good camera shops, even Argos do them.
The mem sticks are available from your local Maplin shop okay.

Sony CX-12 Camcorder gives message when memory stick inserted


Hi!
This is a feature and not a defect of the CX-12 that reminds the user that the memory stick inserted might not be able to record the data from the camera effectively. HD video requires a memory stick with a relatively fast data read/write speed, and the CX-12 recommends not using any other stick that is not Mark 2.
Fortunately, though, as you have found out, it does not affect the camera's ability to record in non-Mark 2 sticks.
Hope this helps!
