Question about Dell Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Where to stick the memorystick in, and how to copy to it. I seen it done but never had the use for one. I'm taking a trip, would like to copy some games to my computer without having to buy them again, and would like to know how to do it. I have a pc that has a memorystick slot on it. I want to know does the memory stick have to go all the way into the computer? And how do I tell the programs to copy to it? Would much appreciate your help. I have a dimensions E510 that I'm copying from-Dell computer pc, and a 2009 laptop Dell that I'm copying to using a SanDisk usb memorystick. Gayle

You put the USB pendrive (memory stick) into a spare USB slot.
There will be usb ports on the rear, and maybe on the front of your pc.
The first time you use it, a little message will pop up saying "loading drivers".
After that, everytime you plug it in, a window will pop up asking you what you want to do.
Usually its just open to browse.
Just drag and drop any files/folders you want to copy. can not copy an installed program/game from your "Program Files" to a usb stick and then to another pc.
When you install software on your pc, it makes registry entries in multiple places, and shortcuts to start folder and desktop.
Almost all software will not work if copied like this, you will need to fully install it on the other computer

Hello Sir.Madam, I have DSC-H10 digital camera. It is having memory of type "Memory Stick Pro Duo". This card was working fine till the day. To transfer images to my PC, I have accessed this card to SD...

Your problem is that you have formatted your MemoryStick from your computer. Your Sony camera uses its own proprietary formatting method and does not understand FAT32. You may also have corrupted your memory card if you didn't click on "safely remove hardware" or by right clicking on the icon of the MemoryStick in the My Computer window and selecting "Eject" from the drop down menu. (This assumes that you have a Windows pc, Macs will have their own way of doing this).

Try reformatting the memory card in the camera itself, this usually solves the issue but if it doesn't then you'll have to replace the MemoryStick.

Good luck, I hope that my reply has been of use and that you are able to save your MemoryStick. I'd be grateful if you would take a moment to rate my answer.

Trying to trainsfer program from my computer to the tevion memory

Place the flash drive (mem stick) into the USB port of the computer. Copy the files to it. Remove it from the computer and put it into the USB port of the other computer. Copy the files from the flash drive to the computer hard drive.
The memorystick (flash drive) will show up as another disk in File Manager/Windows Explorer, and disappear when the device is removed.

You cannot transfer already installed games from computer to computer, only the files. The game must be installed from the original CDs in order to function.

You can transfer documents, music, pictures, etc.

I cannot formate my sony 1gb memory stick pro duo when i inserted in my computer it shows it cannot use it before formate disk when i tried to formate it shows window was unable to complete the format

Windows formatting tools are not good enough to format Sony memorysticks.
You need to use special formatting tool
Download that from here:

If this will not be able to format your memorystick - call sony support and report that repair of memorystick is necessary. It is a hardware fault with memorystick and it needs to be repaired or replaced.

Twain error message w/ cybershot dsc-f505

do you use a card reader? or do you connect the cam to your pc to download the pics? best way to transfer the images to the pc is a card reader, but some readers wont accept a memorystick with "lock" turned off, so for example if you have a 128MB memorystick, turn write protect on. switch to "off" position (it is a small switch on the stick) then the card reader will "see" the stick, but erasing and writing is not possible with the pc...

Deleted photo recovery from cameras internal memory


Please try this, turn on your camera, insert a blank memory stick, slide the side switch down to the lowest point, should say “No file in this folder” click on menu, click on Setup, use the arrows and go to Memory Stick, choose “Copy” choose “Album” the “OK” this will copy all you pictures from the Album in your camera to your memory stick.

Hope this helps

Memory stick

well, best buy usually doesn't sell memory sticks, its newer version is memorystick duo
the duo does come with a memorystick adapter
so, just go to any store that sells memory sticks such as bestbuy, walmart, target, etc, and you can buy one there
they should be $20-$50

FD91 and memorystick

Judging from the age of the FD 91 (late 1998), I would say NO. Phil doesn't mention any such capability in his Jan 1999 review.
