SOURCE: "No Memory Stick" errors
Due to the length of the memory stick it rarely causes bent pins sideways but they can over a long period lose their tension and fail to make contact with the memory. Also, more commonly they can tend to get a build up of dirt on them. Try using an old memory stick and quickly push the stick in and out of the camera as fast as you can and do this for about 15 to 20 times (with the camera off of course) this should clean any gunk built up on the contacts. Now switch on and use the new stick to see if it's working. If not try the exercise again. If it still doesn't work try sticking 2 layers of sticky tape to the front (the side opposite the gold contacts)Run the tape from the bottom (the contact end) to the top. Running it to the top will ensure it comes out with the stick when you eject it and it doesn't stay inside causing problems. Doing this will marginally increase the size of the stick and put a little more pressure on the contacts. Just nake sure the sticky tape comes nowhere near touching the stick's contacts as this will tend to make them pick up dirt. Also this trick is only to see if it's you camera's contacts have lost tension, its not meant as a permanent fix. If neither of these tricks work I'm afraid it's a trip to the camera hospital.

I have news for any of you who bought this card. This part number MS-EX8G is fake. The MS-EX card is Sony's newest fastest card on the market as of late 2009. It has a burgundy color face and there are already fake cards that look like it. The black cards and even the red cards have different part numbers.
The new MS-EX cards are only available in 1GB, 2GB,and 4GB capacities currently according to the sony usa website. There are few US sellers who actually have this card right now. It is also available in the phillipines under the same part number and widely available there.
Here are the specs from Sony:
Type: Memory Stick Interface (serial/4-bit parallel/8-bit parallel)
User Memory Capacity: 1GB, 2GB, 4GB (approx)
Write Speed: 40Mbps minimum (when optimized with compliant host devices) (4-bit parallel); 120Mbps minimum (when optimized with compliant host devices) (8-bit parallel)
Output Voltage: 2.7V-3.6V
Power Consumption (in Standby): 5mA (max)
Transfer Speed (Parallel Transfer): 480Mbps (60MB/sec) in Parallel Transfer (Theoretical maximum speed)
Average Operating Current (Serial transfer): 65mA (max)
Average Operating Current (Parallel Transfer): 100mA (max) (4-bit parallel); 200mA (max) (8-bit parallel)
Weight (Approx.): 2g
Dimensions (Approx.): 20 x 31 x 1.6mm
The 4GB card has a SRV price of over $100USD but it is available most places for about $75. If you want to confirm the card you purchased as a real card and not fake, you can contact sony and they can help you determine if your card is genuine. If it isn't you can often get a refund from the seller and also can turn them in to your local police, the manufacturer and even your credit card company so they know whats going on.
letting the credit card company helps because if they get enough negative **** from consumers the cc company can suspend or revoke their ability to accept credit cards. chargebacks also reflect poorly on the seller and can get them busted as well.
alerting the police can get them thrown in jail, and alerting the mfg can cost them major fines and jail time as well.
hope this helps and good luck. BTW - dont take my word for this, check it out yourself. contacting sony about this is the best and safest way to make sure you are buying a genuine sony product. dont be a victim.
