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.

Sandisc 4 GB memory stick PRO Duo not working


According to the users manual, the camera does not support above 512 MB cards, however I noticed that there is a firmware update which might address the issue. Go to www.sony.com and support, electronics. Put your model number in the selection box and you'll be taken to the drivers download page.

MY PROBLEM IS THAT MY LAPTOP HAS WINDOW VISTA SYSTEM AND I CANNOT LOAD MY PHOTOS FROM MY SONY CYBERSHOT DSC P73. I NEED THE PROGRAM OR WHAT I NEED TO DO?


To make things easier, you should buy a card reader. There are different types.

MS Pro Card Reader - Is ONLY for the sony memory cards

Multi Card Reader - Will read sD, xD, Ms Pro Duo, Ms Pro, Compact Flash, Smart Media, etc.

Sony has a new memory stick out called the memory stick pro duo. Your P73 does not take this. The P73 takes the Memory Stick Pro. Which is a longer stick. You can go out to best buy or ritz camera and buy a card reader (Memory Stick Pro) and stick your memory card into the card reader and stick that into your USB port on your computer. Since it is USB, this will require NO SOFTWARE.

Your camera came out in 2004. Vista did not come out until early 2007. A lot of software does not work with vista.
