Have you tried to check the contents of the memory stick from your PC?

If you can't see the files on your PC, there are a number of file recovery software packages available, some are even free.

    Do you have a card reader for your PC? it may be better to use one than the camera.

    I don't think that your MS is full, the data is definitely corrupted - possibly the battery went flat while writing to the card.

    File recovery software won't work unless you can recognise the card. Why not take your card to your local camera store and ask them to check it.

Problems with my Sony Cybershot W210


1) Make sure that you're not using more than 4 GB memory stick pro duo with the camera. Then try to remove the memory stick and capture 2 images in the internal memory and turn OFF and turn ON the Camera and check. If the error message comes, its the issue with the Camera itself and requires service after resetting. to reset the Camera, select Initialize under Main Settings 1 menu under Settings. if the issue persists, the camera may require service
If its working fine, transfer all the images to the Computer and format the memory stick. Formatting will delete all the contents. If the issue persists, memory stick should be replaced.

Maximum Memory Stick size I can put into my Sony DSC-N1


Unfortunately, there is no way to change the internal card reader in the camera to accept higher density memory cards. You can find the memory stick compatibility list here: https://esupport.sony.com/perl/support-info.pl?&info_id=12 . Scroll down to the Cybershot N Series camera list. The maximum capacity memory stick is 4 GB memory stick pro or M2 Memory stick Pro. For the Memory Stick Duo, it looks like those have a maximum capacity of 2 GB.

I hope this helps.

CAN I UPLOAD PICS FROM MY SONY CYBERSHOT W55 USING A SANDISK??


what do you mean nothing happens???
the memory stick pro duo should fit right into the sony cybershot....
if your struggling to load your photos onto your computer buy a universal memory card reader!
you should try and use a memory stick in a camera that needs an sd though!
