Problem with memory stick adaptor

I have a new memory stick with adaptor. When I turn on the camera it says "access"...then eventually memory stick error. The numbers c:13:01 are flashing in the upper right corner. The memory stick seems to fit fine, but this screen is stuck and won't do anything else...Is it just the battery?

  8. Remove the Memory Stick media from the camera.

Memory Stick for my DSC P-72 3.2 mega pixel camera is not working. The larger stick is no longer available. Will the camera take the adapter for the smaller disc and a 2gig stick?

your camera is only available for use with a regular memory stick . it's not compatible with pro memory sticks (or ms greater than 256mb). so even if you you a memory stick adaptor with a 2gb ms, it will not work with cam. you'll need regular ms with has a maximum capacity of up to 128mb only.although those ms are no longer available from sony,you can do an internet search (like google) to check availability of the ms from online can type in the ms models: msh128 or mshm128a.(that's a duo size ms w/included adaptor).you'll be suprise to find out it's still available online.hope this helps.tnx:)

Sony cyber-shot DSC-W35

you might just want to buy a memory stick adaptor for your memory stick and insert it in the pc memory stick duo slot.. its alot faster to transfer pictures like that anyway.. I wouldnt worry about connecting the camera to the pc, all it does it is consume battery power and transferring pictures takes a litttle bit longer.  But if you do connect with usb, make sure its hooked on properly and you have plenty of battery power.
