The DSC-H2 works with Memory Stick Duos, not with Memory Stick PRO Duos.

    Good to know =) Do you know if it has to be below an 8GB if the memory stick is a Duo instead of a PRO Duo? Do the GB's matter then? TIA.

  • kakima Nov 27, 2013

    As far as I'm aware, Memory Stick Duos only go to 128MB (that 1/8 of a GB). Seehttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Memory_Stic...

Well alot of the time there is a issue with the formating that the camera does on the stick and also when formating it on the computer it formats it another way as well. some in FAT and some in FAT32 this is ushally a error for the most part I would definatly plug your duo stick into a card reader and then go to my computer and the find the drive that the stick is in and right click on it and go to properties and do a error check on the stick to make sure that there is no errors. and if you can defragment after the scan then by all means do it and then format the card and try it and hopefully it will work out to your advantage.

*note this problem seems to only happen with the non branded duo sticks not the sony branded ones.*

If you tried replacing the memory card, removing batteries, and cleaning the contacts already, then it means the memory card socket contacts inside the camera are defective.

Usually this is caused by a bad connector or a bad cold joint on the memory card slot wirings, or on the small pcb board inside the camera.

To fix the problem the camera must be taken apart, the wirings to memory card slot tested for continuity, and the lose contact re-soldered.

If the camera is less than one year old, or still under guaranty, the repair will be covered in complete.

Ask a quote for this job at any repair shop, or call the number listed on the owner manual to get service.

Yes, a Memory Stick Pro Duo is the right card for this camera. The manufacturer shouldn't matter.

Maximum Memory Stick size I can put into my Sony DSC-N1


Unfortunately, there is no way to change the internal card reader in the camera to accept higher density memory cards. You can find the memory stick compatibility list here: https://esupport.sony.com/perl/support-info.pl?&info_id=12 . Scroll down to the Cybershot N Series camera list. The maximum capacity memory stick is 4 GB memory stick pro or M2 Memory stick Pro. For the Memory Stick Duo, it looks like those have a maximum capacity of 2 GB.

I hope this helps.

what do you mean nothing happens???
the memory stick pro duo should fit right into the sony cybershot....
if your struggling to load your photos onto your computer buy a universal memory card reader!
you should try and use a memory stick in a camera that needs an sd though!
