    I'm using a Toshiba Satellite P-200 (with Vista) and a Sony MSAC-M2 adaptor.

    Vista recognizes the memory, but doesn't give me acces to it. I've seen that the adaptor is not compatible with Vista. How do I fix this problem?

    Did this same memory stick work on this same laptop before?

    Are you using Windows XP or Vista (or some other OS)?

    What brand of memory stick are you using?

I have a Toshiba Satellite laptop and I have the Sony's MemoryStick Duo Adapter the MSAC M2.

I try many times putting it in the port and nothing happens. I click on the "My Computer"; to see if I can click on the "Memory Disk (E)" to open; but it says "Application Not Found".
What does that mean? When I try to eject the Memory Disk (E); it says, "An Error Has Occurred While Ejecting the Memory Disk (E)." Then when I try to "Safely Remove the Hardware"; it says, "Window can't stop your MemoryStick0 Device; because, it is in use. Close any programs or windows that might be using the device, and then try again." I am confuse; what programs or windows that can be using the device?

Can anyone help me out?

Not all computers allow you to use the Pro type of memory, so it won't matter what type of adapter you have, if your memory slot can't recognize it that's the end of the story. Check with your maker's website here's the link to Toshiba's

My memory stick duo adapter is not working, is there anything that i cantry to solve this problem

Usually adapters are pretty cheaply made. I have many Memory Stick adapters just bite the dust for no apparent reason. They are made to be disposable. If it doesn't work now, it probably won't work in the future, unfortunately.
You can pick one up for cheap on Newegg and other websites though.
Thanks for using FixYa.

I have two sony memory stick duo adapters. How do they work and in what.

Sony Memory Stick Duo adapters allow you to plug sony memory sticks into a computer or memory card reader. Without them, your regular sony memory stick would not be able to be read by a computer or other device.

Is there supposed to be a light that comes on when i stick the wireless adaptor in the laptop

It depends. If your computer has the correct device-drivers for the wireless adapter, then the lamp will light. If not, the lamp will not light up.

Hii have just reinstalled my laptop with the vista operating system and i cant seem to connect to the internet

Did you reinstall from the manufacturer-supplied "System Restore" set of CD/DVD disks, or did you install from a "generic" Microsoft Windows Vista DVD? If the former, then the correct device-drivers for the manufacturer-specific hardware should have been automatically installed; if the latter, you'll need to access the manufacturer's "support & downloads" web-site, using a computer that does have Internet access (and either a USB memory-stick or a CD-writer), and download the correct device-driver, copy it to the memory-stick or to CD-R or CD-RW media, and then install the device-driver, by reading the software from the memory-stick or the CD-disk.

I'm afraid your only option is to get the drivers one way or the other before you can connect to the internet or the network.

What I recommend is simply downloading the drivers from another computer that has access to the internet and transfering the driver package with a USB key or an other portable storage device.
