I've lost the 4mb memory stick that was included with the camera. The cam corder was manufactured in 2001. With the speed of changing technology I don't know if I have purchased the correct replacement or not. I have tried the memory stick pro and I have tried the memory stick pro/with the memory stick pro duo insert and I can't format the stick inserted. Please offer a solution to my problem and just tell me what type of memory stick is compatable.. My email address is email@example.com ..

Re: Memory stick error
if you are using the handy cam just look at the specs on the manual to determine what memory card is compatible. based on your info it is unlikely that the camera even supports 4gig of memory. You should try the smaller sony memory stick up to 2gb only and it should work. good luck

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

Check the following: Memory Stick is inserted in correct position and orientation in camcorder. Try re-inserting several times. Write-protect tab is switched to allow writing to memory stick (on back of memory stick) Memory Stick is formatted in FAT file system (this should already be done except if memory stick has been formatted in a computer in a different format) Memory Stick is not over the maximum capacity memory stick of the camcorder. Memory Stick is not full. Memory Stick is clean and dry. The dcr-trv320 is a 2000 yr. model and came with a 4mb capacity stick and can probably only use up to a 128mb capacity stick or possibly 256mb. Most memory sticks you can buy today are 1GB, 4GB, 8GB etc. memory stick pro duo. and are probably incompatible. E-Bay has some of the old memory sticks like the 128mb for sale. There is a slight possibility that static electricity discharge zapped the stick. Try another memory stick or try the stick in another device.
Regarding no picture in playback is problem mostly of dirty / clogged video head in Sony handy-cam and can be corrected by using good quality video head cleaning tape.
As far as memory stick picture concern, I think lost pictures (42)would be in other folder on memory stick.
Is your new 2GB memory stick is original from Sony or after market? some of them will not detect in CAM because the contact on MS were not touched iside the slot of CAM
Reinsert your 512 MB MS if it work fine then change your 2MB MS
