Memory stick fails

I have a 512MB Memory Stick Pro Duo (Magic Gate) that has work just fine until today. Now the screen says ACCESS when I try to take a photo. When I open the door to the battery & memory stick a red led is on. If I change the memory stick the camera works ok.
Does this mean the 512 memory stick has failed?

Camera keeps telling me to reinsert the memory card. I've tried to new cards. When I put the memory card I was replacing because it is full, it goes back into the camera just fine.

As a last resort you could copy the full card to a computer and then delete the pictures on the card and use that again.

Here is the error list from the camera manual.
This is all I can suggest from here.

"Reinsert the Memory Stick Error"

Insert the "Memory Stick Duo" correctly.

The inserted "Memory Stick Duo"cannot be used in your camera
(See below).

The "Memory Stick Duo" is damaged.

The terminal section of the "Memory Stick Duo" is dirty

Compatible cards.
Memory Stick Duo (without MagicGate)
Memory Stick Duo (with MagicGate) *1 *2
MagicGate Memory Stick Duo *1
Memory Stick PRO Duo *1 *2
NOT compatible
Memory Stick (without MagicGate)
Memory Stick (with MagicGate)
MagicGate Memory Stick
Memory Stick PRO

Some Memory Stick Duo have a write protect switch on the back.
You cannot record, edit or delete images if you
slide the write-protect switch to LOCK with a
fine-tipped object

"Memory Stick Duo", "MagicGate Memory
Stick Duo" and "Memory Stick PRO Duo" are
equipped with MagicGate functions.

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.

When you turn on the camera, message Memory stick error appears. Camera works fine with internal memory but not when using sony memory stick PRO DUO

Try to format memory stick through camera menu to solve this problem and if camera wont allow to format then try/ replace memory stick as this PRO DUO could be defective.
If another memory stick gives same problem then memory stick slot connectors could be bad and visual check by local camera repair shop is required.

My sandisk memory stick pro duo wont work anymore

I have a Sony Cybershot DSC T70 and it keeps saying "Reinsert memory stick" whenever I turn on the camera or slide down the camera lid. Also, whenever I try to view the pictures on my laptop it shows "Please reinsert the memory stick" something along those lines. As I have been researching for the solution, I would have to format the memory card. However, I wouldn't want to lose the pictures as I just took many as from the holiday last week. The only problem is the memory card, I tried using another memory card and it works fine with the camera. There is nothing wrong with the camera.\r\nCan someone please help me how to solve the memory stick problem? It would be great. Ty.
