DPI (dots per inch) is an output parameter and is completely irrelevant to the camera.
Imagine taking a picture that's 2000 pixels by 3000 pixels. When you make a 4x6 print, you're printing at 500 dpi. If you make a 8x12 print, you're printing at 250 dpi. Either way, it's exactly the same picture as taken by the camera. The camera doesn't know what size print you're going to make, so it just puts in a default value. The dpi is set when you print the picture, not when you take it.
DPI (dots per inch) is an output setting and is irrelevant as far as the camera is concerned.
Imagine you're taking a picture that's 2000 by 3000 pixels. At the time you take the picture, do you care how big you print it? When you get home and make a 4x6 print, you're printing at 500 dpi. If you make a 8x12 print, you're printing at 250 dpi. Either way, you're printing the exact same picture as taken by the camera. Since the camera doesn't know how big a print you're going to make, it simply puts in a default value for the dpi.
You may be short on memory. Check your settings. Are you taking images in the 'max' setting? In most cases you do not need to burn 5 Mb per image if you are printing 4x6 prints, then 300k should be fine. This will free up your memory card.
The memory stick can only be used for taking still pictures (which are of terrible quality). Your only option for creating space on your hard drive is to delete items. Before that you can upload videos to your computer and/or burn them on DVDs. Sony actuallly has a DVD burner called DVDirect where you can burn DVDs without the use of a computer. I hope this helps.
