I am using a "SONY CYBERSHOT DSC-P200 7.2". When I plug it into my powerbook to download photos the memory stick icon isn't coming up... it seems to be intermittant.. or was... now it isn't being recognized on either laptop. Please advise. The photos can be seen on my camera but I have not been able to download them. I've been using this camera or a slightly order version for three years so I am very familiar with its protocols!

If you haven't been using the "safely remove hardware" procedure you may be damaging either your stick, your computer's ability to read it, or both. Try reading it on another computer. The same thing happened to my flash drive. It began to work intermittantly, so I replaced it. I now use the "safely remove hardware" procedure and have yet to have any more problems. I replaced my flash drive, you may need to replace the stick, but format it in the camera to see if this helps.

I try to take a pic but it says 'no memory space on memory stick' ...even though I just deleted photos via the computer...?!?

Never delete using the computer...the camera doesn't recognize anything the computer does. Now, you need to format the stick in the camera to get it working again.

Transfering photos from my compuer photo gallery to my camera

Make sure photo files name must be under DSC00001 to DSC99999
connect your camera to computer, click My Computer, Removable Disk, Folder and copy photo files from computer and paste in that folder. If file name is different, camera will not show it in playback though file is in memory stick.

Sony Cybershot - the memory stick is full

More than likely the camera still thinks the photos are on the stick, especially if you deleted the images while it was hooked to the computer. I would safely move the rest of the photos off the stick onto your computer then format the card through the camera and with the camera disconnected from the computer. this should clear the card.

I set the USB to PictBridge mode (press home button, then main settings). Now iPhoto recognizes the camera and I can import photos.
