I bought a new Memory stick for my Sony DCR-TRV320 Camcorder and when i switch my device to memory mode, it tells me "Memory Stick Error."


Check the following:
Memory Stick is inserted in correct position and orientation in camcorder. Try re-inserting several times.
Write-protect tab is switched to allow writing to memory stick (on back of memory stick)
Memory Stick is formatted in FAT file system (this should already be done except if memory stick has been formatted in a computer in a different format)
Memory Stick is not over the maximum capacity memory stick of the camcorder.
Memory Stick is not full.
Memory Stick is clean and dry.
The dcr-trv320 is a 2000 yr. model and came with a 4mb capacity stick and can probably only use up to a 128mb capacity stick or possibly 256mb. Most memory sticks you can buy today are 1GB, 4GB, 8GB etc. memory stick pro duo. and are probably incompatible. E-Bay has some of the old memory sticks like the 128mb for sale.
There is a slight possibility that static electricity discharge zapped the stick. Try another memory stick or try the stick in another device.

My trv900 will not let me record. it will play back all tapes with a bit of digital glitches. even with a brand new tape, it shows a symbol that the tape has no memory left or cannot use the memory. what...


This is usually caused by an oxidized or defective Audio/Video drum. Try running a cleaning tape through the camera. If this does not solve the problem the camera will need to be serviced by a qualified service technician.


My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

How do I get Handycam DCR-DVD305 to recod videos onto a memory stick duo pro?


It is not possible to record the videos onto a Memory Stick Duo or Pro Duo, as this Camcorder DCRDVD305 does not support video recording onto the Memory Stick.
To record the videos you may use 8cm DVD-R/DVD-RW/DVD+RW.

Memory Stick Pro Duo with adapter not compatible with the camera


I am so sorry my friend, you have same problem as we all have, no memory bigger that 1 gb will work in cameras older than 3 years, I think yours is yes? the camera simply does not see those, sad I know, but that is how it is, I know because I have 3, yes 3 adaptors and 3 big mem bits here, and my money is lost.

If the problem is no audio recorded from the internal microphone, then it has likely failed. See http://www.bealecorner.com/trv900/trouble/micfix/index.html for a simple repair procedure you can do yourself.

Memory Stick for the Sony Handycam DCR-DVD 105


This camera uses memory stick duo memory. If you refer to p. 31 of the user manual found here:
http://www.docs.sony.com/release/DCRDVD105-205-305.pdf
It is right beneath the strap.
Keep me posted. I hope you find this FixYa worthy.
Thanks,
