Hey soccerdixie,
I would first make sure that your memory stick is not full, and if it is I would upload your images to a computer and then format your memory card in the camera. If this is not the problem I would make sure that your memory stick is not set to the write protect setting, by looking at the write protect switch on the back of your memory stick. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan

Sony dsc-w200 camera works fine until memory stick is installed


Memory sticks now have two types regular and HC. The memory stick is either nor or nand? The new high capacity nand flash cards can not be use in older cameras. Older cameras also have limits on the capacity that it can access. Read your manual to check out the size of memory stick it can use. Most stores sell large capacity memory sticks only good for new digital cameras. you may have to buy older flash cards on ebay.

Have Pentax Optio H90 digital-when dowloading picture to my computer should I or do I leave in the memory stick and battery?


Yes, leave them in. The only reason to take out the memory stick is if you have pictures stored in the camera's internal memory that you want to access instead of those on the stick.

Take the stick to a store like Walmart that has a Kodak picture kiosk. It can read most memory cards and you can print the pics or even make a cd from them.

Yes, you need to have memory stick because camera has limited internal memory that can store few pictures only.
Put new memory card, format it through camera Menu and copy internal memory pictures to memory stick, take our memory card from camera and delete internal memory pictures either one by one or format internal memory through camera Menu.
Thanks.

Go to camera Menu and select Initialize, OK.
Camera will turn on itself, if problem still exist, tap camera gently and turn On again to solve lens access problem.
Memory stick error can be solved by formatting it through Format menu in camera. Use another memory stick in camera to make sure that camera is OK.

Please try to take as many pictures from memory stick as you can then format memory stick through format option in setup.

Memory full message in error


Remove some pictures from the memory stick Or copy them to your computer. Actually your memory stick is full. If you have no memory stick in the cam then purchase a new one for it. The cam memory is not enough to store many pictures.
