Question about Sony CLIE PEG-SJ20 Handheld

Memory Stick Issues

I recently ran out and bought a 256MB Memory Stick PRO Duo and adaptor for my SJ20. The unit will recognize the stick, but will not allow me to format it. What am I missing (other than a low-maintenance PDA)?

Re: Memory Stick Issues

It clearly states on Sony web site that only 32Mb PSP memory Pro will work with SJ20

Cant get my phone to download pics sent to me

You may have to but a memory stick which is inserted in a slot on the top of the phone. It only gives a low amount of memory to begin with. The specific stick you need is a Micro SD.

My sony CLIE PEG-SJ20 is not compatible with Vista. Is there some mechanism I can install that will make it work with Vista?

I had the same problem with my clie peg-sj20 on my vista home basic based laptop. I could not hotsync after installing the original software. I've never tried to use my pda with this setup before so I was trying to find a way to make it work when I found this post, figured I would reply with what I found.
My Sony clie peg-sj20 runs the Palm o.s. 4.1 software and apparently Sony no longer supports this model. So after trying to hotsync and letting the Windows vista install wizard find the proper software, it suggested contacting the manufacturer of the operating system. I went to the Palm websight and downloaded the Palm o.s. 6.2 software which is compatible with vista, even though it doesn't say it supports the sj20. After installing it I performed a hotsync during setup when I was prompted to do so, and it totally worked. I'm not sure if this version works with other applications but it enabled me to hotsync running vista.
Hope this helps someone out there. Good luck.

SanDisk 2GB micro SD memory stick isn't working in my laptop. I use a Sony Vaio with Vista, it has a digital camera memory stick slot, and pc adaptor slot for micro SDs. I slipped in my SanDisk memory...

Fixed it. All I needed to do was update the software drivers on my laptop. I have a sony vaio, so I looked up the software drivers they had online and downloaded them. After I installed them it worked flawlessly.

Sony Clie n760 memory stick not detected when inserted

Do you share this memory stick with other devices? If you pulled out the memorystick before the device(s) were finished closing the connection, the card may be corrupted. Another thing may be because your memory stick may be too large for your handheld to support. if you don't wanty to refund your $ just shrink the memory stick into a gig or less. You have to have a pc with a memory card reader that supports memory stick. just open up my computer> right click the memory stick> Fortmat and select a smaller size to format to.
