Try formatting memory card as different devices allocate admin files in order to manage your photo files. That should fix ur problem.

WHAT memory stick do i use for a DCR-PC9E


You probably need the old-style memory sticks, as this is a fairly old camera, or an adapter. See this article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Memory_Stick
Adaptors are cheap : http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Memory-Stick-Pro-Duo-Adapter-/251482939281?pt=UK_Photography_MemoryCardReaders_RL&hash=item3a8d8d1f91 is but one example, there are lots for sale out there or your sony shop may have one.
You may have to check to see if the camera is capable of reading and writing to a card of 4GB size, but as you have already bought it, it's worth a try.
Hope this helps.

    • 1 Visit the Sony Support site (see Resources) and download the Sony memory card software. You will need to specify your operating system. Save the file to your desktop.
    • 2 Double-click the downloaded file to launch the installer.
    • 3 Follow the onscreen instructions to install the Sony memory card software. Restart the computer after completion. Once the computer starts back up, it will recognize the Memory Stick Pro Duo when inserted into the computer's memory card reader. You can browse the files using Windows Explorer or the installed x-Pict Story software.

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.

I hav sony cell wen i insert memory card it screen


You haven't said what capacity memory stick you're trying to use, but the K750 will support a maximum 1GB MemoryStick pro Duo. If you're trying a higher capacity card then you can get the problem which you describe.

if this has helped then please return the favour by rating my answer. If not then please give details of the make, exact model and capacity of the Memory Stick in the comments box and I'll try to research a better answer for you.

Camera can no longer read the Sony 16G Memory Stick Pro Duo


Sorry but it sounds like the card is pootched. Very common problem with these sticks. Best bet is to get multiple 2gb sticks to ensure that when one goes (and one will) you won't lose all of your pics

I cannot formate my sony 1gb memory stick pro duo when i inserted in my computer it shows it cannot use it before formate disk when i tried to formate it shows window was unable to complete the format


Windows formatting tools are not good enough to format Sony memorysticks.
You need to use special formatting tool
Download that from here:

http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-download.pl?mdl=MSACUS40&upd_id=2860&os_id=7

If this will not be able to format your memorystick - call sony support and report that repair of memorystick is necessary. It is a hardware fault with memorystick and it needs to be repaired or replaced.

All labels to face user. Etched out corner is always bottom left. Best to have good grip on the adapter before inserting duo card.

Sony handy cam memory stick pro duo


If the mem. stick doesn't work in anything else then your memory stick may be physically damaged. Just open the card in any computer using a card reader and format it using the FAT file system.
