Question about SanDisk Memory Media

1 Answer

I have a simple question. How do I insert my scandisk memory stick pro duo card into my laptop to read? MY laptop has open slot 5 in 1 media card reader. I can insert all my other card and able to read. The cards go 3/4 way in and I push the same to eject it. But Scandisk MS pro card is small. When I insert in laptop slot, it goes all the way in and gets stuck. Do I need to add extension/adapter or maybe a PCMCIA card?

You need an adapter that will convert it into a regular pro duo card. They usually come with the card when you buy it but else should be availabe at you local electronics store.

I have a sandisc memory stick pro duo 4gb and it is too small to fit in the memory card slot of my laptop which is an acer aspire 7220 series. please help x


Hi there!
Simply insert the card in it's adapter, then insert it into the memory slot.
However you can buy yourself an external USB card Reader supporting your pro duo card.
Please rate this advice as it's very important for us.
Good luck friend!

it is advisable to buy a AIO (All in one) card reader, you can use this to many different type of memory card, the built in slot for memory card in your laptop sometimes only suite to a single type or model (ex. SD slot..MMC Slot etc.)

in your case your memory card is not fit to it, don't force it you might damaged your card

Unable to upload pictures from memory card to computer


Most laptops that have a memory card reader will only read these types of cards, without needing an adaptor: -SD card -MMC card -Sony Memory Stick or Memory Stick Pro cards -XD cards
However, you have a MS Pro Duo card, although it fits into the card reader slot, the card is a lot thinner than what's expected, so the laptop won't be able to read it.
You need to put the Pro Duo card into the stanard size MS Pro caard adaptor. See attached image.
Hope this helps.

Ejecting Memory Stick Pro Duo card out of notebook card reader


Hi, the memory Stick Pro Duo card is (micro), half size as you have noticed you need to buy an SD adapter card. You put your Pro Duo card into the SD card & than put it into your card reader.
Once you see the SD adapter card on the web site you'll understand. You can buy this at a local BestBuy. Most web sites sell the adapter as a combo, you'll get a micro card & adapter.
Click the link below.

Look at SanDisk 2GB Ultra II Memory Stick PRO Duo w/Adapter
& you will understand.

Good Luck & Have a Great Day!
