HP Pavilion dv6000 driver not reading Sony Memory Stick Pro Duo

I use a camera with a Sony Memory stick Pro Duo and up until recently I have had no problems viewing and importing photos from the stick/adaptor onto my laptop.

Now I cannot even view my pictures from the memory stick, let alone import them to the computer. When I try to view them (in both Picasa or Windows Photo gallery for example), I can view only part of the first photo or sometimes the first few photos, along with thumbnails where all the other photos should be. When I click on the thumbnails, I get the message "Photo Gallery can't open this photo or video. This file format is not supported, or you don't have the latest updates to Photo Gallery.

What I tried:

I checked for updates. I have the latest ones.

I went into My Computer-->Hardware and Sound---> Device Manager---> Disk Drives---> Ricoh Memory Stick Disk Device......It says the device is working properly... Tried to update the driver software and I already have the latest updates.

Should I try uninstalling Ricoh drivers and reinstalling them?

My first thought was that the memory stick was damaged, so I tried it on my other PC (has XP on it, not Vista like my HP Pavilion) . I could import the pictures just fine.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you!

Hey i have the same problem with the hp pavillion 6000. It is one of the most unreliable computers in the world but i guess thats another discussion... I have a 2g memory card that will only be recognized if i restart the computer and put it in then... Once you eject it though it wont recognize it. HP needs to get their **** together and stop ripping people off.

It could be possible that you are missing the card reader driver. HP Support has the driver for download: ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp34501-35000/sp34638.exe

HP Compaq 6910p - how do I get the Memory Stick Duo Adaptor to be read by my laptop? I inserted the memorystick pro from my Sony camera into the associated adaptor, but the laptop isn't seeing it. Thanks.


into a adapter that is not built into the pc? or the one on the pc? if it is on on the pc does it say it supports MS DUO or just marked SD MMC?

If its external test it on another PC, if it works switch the usb you are using, on your PC

Sounds like you need to update your drivers for the memory stick. Go to the device manager in the control panel you should be able to locate the software and drivers for your device. Check to see if any upgrades are available. This should help.
