Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-P73 Digital Camera

Sony Memory Stick Duo Adapter

I have a Sony DSC-P73 and recently bought a Sony Memory Stick Duo Adaptor since the memory stick that came with the camera didn't hold very many pics. When I try to download the pics on my computer they become distorted after the download (have tried inserting the memory stick and have tried using the USB cable). My pics come out fine using the same memory stick when I use my Sony Handycam. Please advise.

Re: Sony Memory Stick Duo Adapter

When you download to the computer, what program do you open with? Try not using the auto-open feature, and open direct from new device in "my computer".

Can I use memory stick duo adaptor with memory stick pro duo on sony dsc s85

The DSC-S85 works with the original Memory Sticks, 128MB or smaller. Even with an adapter, you'd still be limited to 128MB.

Bought used camera Sony Cyber Shot Model DSC-P32. What Memory Stick do I need?

You can use Memory Stick standard, pro or pro duo up to 2GB with the Camera.
    A dedicated adapter (MSAC-M2) must be attached to use Memory Stick Duo™ or MagicGate Memory Stick Duo media.

I have provided the Memory Stick compatibility chart for your reference.

I was having memory stick PRO 256MB, now it got corrupted. what shall i do? i asked in sony showroom but they stop selling memorystick PRO. they told me using adaptor also 1GB or higher memory card will...

Regarding a corrupted Memory Stick, you may be able to recover the data using the free Sony Memory Stick Data Rescue Service. This is a downloadable utility, just click on the link which I have provided for you.

Your camera is designed to take Sony Memory Stick Pro up to and including 1GB capacity. Larger capacity Memory Sticks do not work in your camera, but as you have found out for yourself the 1GB versions are no longer manufactured. Your best option is to contact camera shops directly as there are bound to be some which are still in stock. You could also try sites like eBay and Amazon, but be very careful who you buy from as there are plenty of fakes with inferior performance.

You can use Memory Stick Pro or Pro-Duo provided the latter is supplied with the adapter which is normally included to make it the same physical size as a regular Pro. You can also find Memory Stick Micro (also known as M2) in the 1GB capacity which you require, but even with adapters it might not work with your camera due to other hardware issues.

1GB cards are generally regarded as obsolete, so many folks will have them lying unused due to upgrading. Why not try asking for one on your local FreeCycle or Freegle (UK only) group? You'll have most chances of success if you ask for the smaller 256MB or 512MB Memory Sticks, and they will also ensure maximum compatibility with your DSC-P73. Although it was designed for up to 1GB, such cards did not exist at the time so it was never officially tested with them in practice.

I hope that my posting has been of some assistance to you and helps you to obtain what you require. All I ask in return is that you take a moment to rate my answer.

Have Sony CyberShot DSC-F707 Sony Memory Stick Duo Adaptor and Sony Memory Stick Pro Duo 4gb When installed get C:1301 error


In DSCT1 Camera, the C:13:01 error message indicates a Self diagnostic message. Each of these codes indicates the symptoms and resolutions of the Camera. In C:13:01, the issue is with the Memory Stick being used in the Camera.

The Symptoms are:

Memory Stick Pro Duo 4GB is not compatible with the DSCF707 Camera. Maximum capacity supported by the Camera is up to 128MB. Please try using a MS with 128 MB and check if it works. A dedicated adapter (MSAC-M2) must be attached to use Memory Stick Duo or MagicGate Memory Stick Duo media.

Why does my DSC-P31 Camera won't accept Sony memory MSAC-M2?? and what are the list of memory stick that compatible to DSC-P31?? thanks

It is an old camera. It was introduced in 2002. The spec's I looked up just say memory stick, and memory included "8MB Memory Stick". I looked the MSAC-M2 up on line and it looks a like it's a "Memory Stick Duo Adapter" not a memory stick. I'd try one that is sold as a "Memory Stick".

To make things easier, you should buy a card reader. There are different types.

MS Pro Card Reader - Is ONLY for the sony memory cards

Multi Card Reader - Will read sD, xD, Ms Pro Duo, Ms Pro, Compact Flash, Smart Media, etc.

Sony has a new memory stick out called the memory stick pro duo. Your P73 does not take this. The P73 takes the Memory Stick Pro. Which is a longer stick. You can go out to best buy or ritz camera and buy a card reader (Memory Stick Pro) and stick your memory card into the card reader and stick that into your USB port on your computer. Since it is USB, this will require NO SOFTWARE.

Your camera came out in 2004. Vista did not come out until early 2007. A lot of software does not work with vista.
