Compatible memory sticks

I have a Sony Cyber shot DSC-W5O, was using a Sony Memory stick Pro Duel, was given a HP Photosmart a510 printer , which is saying that memory stick isnt recognised.It states it will take: CompactFlash type 1 & 2 Memory Sticks Microdrive MultimediaCard Secure Digital SmartMedia xD-Picture Card. When i checked what Memory cards were compatible with the Cyber shot, none of the above were listed, is this correct? I thought it would take most types, does this mean i wont be able to use my printer with this camera?

Re: Compatible memory sticks

Memory stick pro duo is unfortunately not back compatible with plain Memory stick, so you wont be able to use that stick with both the camera and the printer. Here's the manual for the printer if you need it - you are correct with your list of compatible stuff; you are also correct about the cyber shot, it wont take non "pro" or "duo" sticks check the user guide page 95 downloadable from this link;®ion_id=1 However, the camera and printer are both "Pict Bridge" capable, which means you can connect them together directly with a USB cable. Check the camera manual page 73 and 74 for instructions and a good description of the cable, page 25 of the printer manual for essentially the same info. You could also download the photos to your computer and either print from there or save them on a printer compatible type of memory stick/card. Unfortunately without a computer, neither are possible. If you want to order a usb cable direct from Sony if you don't have one; (unfortunately it is $38)!!!!! I think most camera stores would stock it also. If you want more info on memory sticks and what the differences are; Hope this helps :)

Re: Compatible memory sticks

That's right. If the printer doesn't use the existing stick, you can't do a direct print. Do it thru the computer: plug the stick into the pc and then print the photos out to the printer.

I have a Sony DSC-S75 camera and I am having a problem finding a memory stick are any of the SDHC cards compatible/

The only memory card you can use are the Sony Memory Sticks. You cannot use a Sony Memory Stick Pro, so you have to find one that is under 512MB capacity and does NOT say "Pro" on it. You cannot use any other format memory card such as SD or SDHC.

Where to purchase a memory stick for Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-P71. Every card I have seen is not the same size as the current one I have


The DSC-P71 Camera is compatible only with the 32MB / 64MB / 128MB Memory Stick Duo only. Standard Memory Stick media cannot be used with this Camera.
It's bit hard to find out these Memory Sticks as most of the Companies discontinued manufacturing low capacity Memory Sticks. However you can try contacting a Sony Store or any Sony dealers near your area to get one.

Memory card

Hi - no, the DSC-P7 isn't compatible with Memory Stick Pro, only original Memory Stick, meaning you're limited to 128MB/stick. Having said that, the P7 is only a 3.2MPixel camera, 128MB will hold quite a few pictures, even at full resolution.
