Re: memory sticks

The memory stick for this camera can be brought at any Sony Style, or even your local best buy. You will need to look for Sony Memory Stick Pro. They are now not purple now but black like the new smaller Pro Duo.

If you wish to call and order you can do so at 1-877-865-7669 and speak to a customer sales rep and order it over the phone.

I need a sd card and cable for sony f 717

Your Sony uses a memory stick called Sony Memory Stick Pro which they don't make any more, it was replaced with a smaller card called Sony Memory Stick Pro Duo, go to ebay and buy a adapter called Sony Memory Stick Pro Adapter it is sliver in color with blue color at the end. Once you get ahold of that adapter, you can now buy the new smaller card called Sony Memory Stick Pro Duo and insert it to that adapter, then slide the adapter with the new smaller card into your camera.
I have several older Sony digital camera that I converted to use the newer Sony Memory Stick Pro Duo cards, it works great ! I checked your Sony model on Ebay and you have to scroll down a bit to see those adapters I just mentioned, some sell with the adapter and the newer memory stick already included in the price.

Sony dsc-w200 camera works fine until memory stick is installed

Memory sticks now have two types regular and HC. The memory stick is either nor or nand? The new high capacity nand flash cards can not be use in older cameras. Older cameras also have limits on the capacity that it can access. Read your manual to check out the size of memory stick it can use. Most stores sell large capacity memory sticks only good for new digital cameras. you may have to buy older flash cards on ebay.

I have an older DSC-P52 camera and am having trouble


There is no reason why the MicroSD adapter shouldn't work in the camera providing the card adapter is the right size for the camera.

I myself use an adapter in my own camera and have no problems with it.

Error message: Reinsert the Memory Stick"

The problem is with the memory card. It probably just shorted internally and is no longer useful. The amount of memory is not the problem, as I used a 4GB card for a long time and my card finally went bad. You will just have to get another memory card and MAYBE find someone to be able to retrieve your data.

Memory stick for Sony Mavica FD92

Most older digital cameras do not work when you try to use a memory stick adapter and the newer, smaller size memory sticks. Because this memory format is so old that it is no longer sold in retail stores, your best option is to buy a memory stick online. You can find these memory sticks on eBay.

To find more eBay auctions for these memory sticks, go to the Memory Cards category on eBay. Then, on the left side select Format = Memory Stick, and Storage Capacity = 64MB and under.

In the resulting search, only look at the auctions that are actually for 64MB and under Memory Sticks - you will find a lot of mis-classified memory in the search results - items that are the wrong format (not memory sticks) or too large to work in your camera.

Sony digital dsc-f707 startup goes to "no memory stick"

Could be that the contacts on the camera are oxidised. Try cleaning the contacts with isopropyl alcohol and see if this helps. If not, it could indicate a circuitry problem. In this case, you'd probably be better off buying a new cam altogether!

older cameras didn't support pro cards-if door where card goes in says memory stick anly and not pro you need to find PURPLE card that maxs out at 128mb and that's the only card you can use-hard to find-maybe staples or office depot sometimes or online-if door says mem stick pro try formating card through menu in camera-

Memory Stick error c:13:01

The problem is compatibility - or lack thereof. The older Sony cameras such as DSC-S50 (I have one), which used the original version of the Sony Memory Stick, can't read the new Memory Stick Pro - even with the "Duo" adapter.

I don't know all the specifics but it has to do with how the memory chip interfaces w/ the camera, how the data is transferred -- newer models of chips/cameras use a different, faster method for data transfer which the older cameras/devices can't do. Similar to "serial" vs. "USB" vs. "USB-2" issues with older computers.

So, sorry to say, but if you have a DSC-S50 camera like I do or similar older model, you're stuck w/ the standard Memory Sticks - which I have just discovered are very hard to find any more. I just finished a sweep of all major electronic stores/outlets in my area (silicon valley - where there's plenty of them), plus many web sites. And all you can find new, now, are the Pro/Duo chips, 1GB & up.

Anyway I hope this helps!
