Question about Sony 2GB Memory Stick PRO Duo Memory Card

1 Answer

Hi, my memory stick pro is not showing any pictures when it is in the camera and when I put it in my PC it says the folder on it is only 96kb, but when I check the properties of the stick it says 3 GB are used and one GB is free. Is it possible for me to get the 3 GB of pictures that are on it?

    Ha I spoke too soon. It was my g/f's camera and as is the norm for women they neglect to think about things when it comes to electronics etc. SHe has had this cam for a couple of years and has never deleted the memory card on her computer to make sure there is enough room. So when we were away on holiday in NYC after the first day she said the card was full. I had my laptop and said we can hook it up and transfer the old pics then delete them from the card, but true to form she hadn't brought any leads and it being a sony the card did not fit in the pc as she also hadn't brought the adaptor. So we went through the cam and deleted the pics manually to free up space. She was then able to use the cam and we could look at the pics at night on the lcd. When I managed to locate the hidden files as per your instructions I was able to see the pics we had deleted, pics from 2008, but not the ones from NY, there is 1.5 GB free on the card so I am thinking that she somehow deleted them when she tried to transfer them and the files we thought we had deleted have somehow been kept, they were in a folder called trash that was greyed out but 2.5 GB in size. So we have lost pics from a good trip all because she did not maintain her cam i.e. move old photos off it and save them and then delete the drive via the pc, I am mad and she is upset :-(

    OK, thanks for info.
    I'm not sure that DSC-H10 support 4GB memory stick however, need to unhidden these files in memory card to see in Windows.
    Click on My Computer, click Tools on upper bar, select Folder Options, Folder Options window will pop up, click on View Tab and select "show hidden files and folders" click Apply and OK buttons at bottom of that window.
    Hook up camera with computer and click Mass Storage (it is memory stick in camera) in My Computer and click on folders to see picture files that were hidden before.
    Thanks.

    What I understand is your are missing latest trip pictures and got old trips pictures, right?
    Here is another way to recover deleted files in one condition that is if memory stick/ card has not been formatted either in camera or through computer.
    Download Pandora File Recovery free software (click that link to get it) and install it in computer, hook camera with computer and go to memory stick folders and recover deleted files.

    Please note that if memory stick has been formatted, files are gone forever. It will work if picture files are deleted one by one.

My Sony memory stick pro duo magic gate mark 2 is not shows images on pc but in my camera, but the photos are visible on Sony cybershot camera


Some Sony Cybershot camera's have a small amount of memory built into the camera. Double check that the camera is set to put the pictures onto the memory stick.
If the camera is set up correctly, the memory stick may not be formatted correctly for your computer. If at all possible, connect the camera to your computer directly with the USB cable that should have come with it.

I put memory stick duo into laptop now am not able to use camera.


It sounds like the photos are downloaded onto the pc... the access might mean that the memory card is empty. Turn the selector wheel on top of the camera to the mode that you take the photos on and try taking a picture. Make sure the card is in the right way first. Also the next time you download the photos just make a new folder on your desktop and label it photos. Insert the memory card open it and highlight one photo then press cntrl and A ...this will highlight all the photos in the folder then drag them to the new folder it will remove the photos from the card and place them in that folder on your pc. hope this helps

HI I INSTALL THE GIGICAM DRIVERS BUT MY 26379 WONT


try another USB port, on the back of the computer. My fromt ones are low power and dont work on half of my devices! Also, reboot the PC when the camera is plugged in, maybe itll pick it up. The camera may be drive mode and not picture mode. I have seen some strange things on 3rd party cameras. My Sony DSC-30 puts all videos in a folder that Picasa never sees, or deletes. I found a 2 year old video in there when I was looking around on the memory stick.
