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.

SOURCE: sony t500 digital camera memory stick

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.

When i connected cybershot dsc t70 memory stick to my pc using card reader i am unable to see the images in it..which is possible directly in camera to view please help me in this


You firstly need to verify your camera is reading the Memory Stick properly in the camera.
There should be a memory stick logo next to the amount of pictures you can take on your screen
If you are positive your Mem Stick is working and pictures are on there then Check
your MyPictures area on your System or your MyDocuments Area. You can
access these areas by clicking on your MYComputer Icon.

If you think the pictures never transfered then remove the stick from the PC and re-insert it. Try this a couple times. Sometimes the PC for whatever reason will not read the card and a simple Reboot usually clears up the problem.

Brand new camera, unable to take any pictures. Internal memory is full. Even when we put a mmory card in place, still thinks internal memory is full. Why doesn't the camera use the memory stick to save...

If you used the internal memory even once, the memory card will not work until you get rid of whatever is in the internal memory. Do this...with no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format"...follow the on-screen instructions to erase the internal memory. Then, your card should work properly.

Memory card has a problem after taking important pictures.. displays reinsert memory stick error and wont read on computer either... any idea if photos can be recovered?

Make sure the memory contacts show up a visible clarity. If there is no detection in any of the card readers, inthe camera and inthe PC, it seems likely that your card has some errors on it,
If the card is detecting the memory but is not showing any pictures, the use a file search in the search mode with the drive selected for pictures/images.
If not it will be best to have it checked with a photo studio to concur the findings since you have important images on it.

Memory sticks empty and shows no memory available

i have a solution that worked! Notice: save all the needed data on your computer, because Formatting your Memory stick will wipe everything out!
if you have a Sony PSP, or know someone who does, replace the memory stick that says "no memory Space" in to the PSP port, go to "Settings" which is the left-most section of the PSP main screen, then scroll down to "System Settings," select it, Scroll down again to the "Format Memory Stick" selection and press "X" follow on-screen instructions and  SHAZAM!  its ready for action in your camera again!

Using Internal says memory full, no image!

I own the same camera, Not sure about no pictures showing in the memory but you can get a 2 gig memory card for around $20 in stores or around $15 or $16 on ebay, holds over 700 pictures at the highest resolution. Also try to download your pictures to your computer if you haven't already. Hope this helps.

I have Sony DSC V1 digital camera. I am facing a problem with this now. I am not able to take any pictures because always it says " memory stick error" though there is a memory stick in place.

This problem can be fixed by formating memory stick, please go to Camera Menu > format option. Take back-up of data in memory before formating it, and use memory card reader to get data in PC as camera is unable now to transfer data in PC (until it shows no problem with memory stick).
