Memory card reader

My laptop has a built in memory card reader. My camera uses a sony memory stick and to transfer pics to my laptop I have to use an memory stick adaptor. I have done this many times before with no problems but now when I put the card into the computer the computer sees the card but says it is not formatted. If I put the card back into the camera it works fine. I have also tried putting a SD card from another camera into the reader and it works normally, no problems. I have tried restarting with no luck. any help would be appreciated.

    I was excited when I read your post thinking that it would fix the problem but it didn't. I did what you said and when I put the card in the computer said it needed to be formatted so I hit ok but then it said that the card could not be formatted. I don't know what the problem is. I ended up connencting my camera to my computer via usb and it saw the pictures on the card no problem and let me transfer them. For some reason the reader is not working with this card even though it has in the past. Could the adaptor be messed up?

    I have a Dell Inspiron 6000, the SD card reader was working fine until recently. It no longer could start (code 10) the SD Memory Card.

    I worked with Microsoft Support with no result. I have installed a Ricoh driver and I can now read MMC cards but not SDs.

My dsc-w310 wont connect on my computer, it says switch on usb mass storage which is on? what to do?


Sometimes it is easier to remove the memory card from your camera and connect directly using a card reader. Modern computers often have a card reader built in for the popular cards like and SD card. Sony often have 'Sony Memory Stick' cards. This would usually mean you have to purchase a card reader separately unless it is a Sony laptop. Card readers are less than 10 GBP each often only 5 GBP. Connect card reader cable to a USB port open windows explorer or my computer, create a new folder on your computer and then click and drag the photos from the card reader to the folder on your computer.

Can I import camera pics to a Dobly Home Theater laptop, by Acer?


First a nitpick: your memory card is Memory Stick Pro Duo, it's not an SD card. Secure Digital is one specific type of memory card, distinct from xD, CF, Memory Sticks, and other memory card types.

Okay, not that I've got that off my chest, yes you can import pics to your laptop. Just connect a card reader to the USB port and then put your Memory Stick into the reader. Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files.

Card readers should be available at just about any department, electronics, or office-supply store. One important point to remember is to make sure you get a card reader that can read Memory Stick Pro Duos. If you get, for example, an SD card reader, it won't do you any good.

I have a dsc-w150 digital camera, no usb cord. how can i transfer my pictures to laptop?


You'll need a card reader to transfer the data to your PC.
These days most laptops and printer has built in card reader. But since Sony camera's use memory stick, some of them don't support memory stick. So,
  • First check whether or not your printer or laptop has memory stick support, if has then use it to transfer you images. Otherwise you've to purchase a memory card reader with memory stick read support[should be available on any nearby electronic shop].
  • Then remove your memory stick from your camera and connect it with your laptop.
  • Open the memory card and copy your images.

Sony cyber shot 7.2 Carl Zeiss transfer pics on memory card


No.
Take the memory stick out of the camera then connect to the computer. You can then transfer the pictures from the camera to the computer.
Alternatively, use the camera's copy command to copy the pictures from the internal memory to the memory stick.

Also, please check your card reader if it supports Memory Stick Pro Duo.

If you already have an adaptor but still doesn’t work, you can buy a PSP USB data cable to transfer files between your computer and PSP.

Memory stick photos to laptop


Connect a card reader and insert the memory card to this card reader and you can transfer the pictures to your computer. Now most of the card readers have slots to insert all types of memory cards, you can have any card reader from a local electronic shop.

Memory stick error


Hi There, In the menu there should be a setting to set the camera back to factory. Try re-formatting the card. Try using a different card. The camera has some built in memory, take card out and shoot 2 pics on built in memory, is playback ok?
If not, card reader may be defective. Only service shop could tell you that for sure.
Let me know, mr cicmo.

My memory card says that it needs to be formatted


If you have a memory card reader built into the computer, printer or by itself insert the memory card and see if the pics come up to transfer over. Lots of stores like Walgreens/Rite Aid/Savon have print machines you can stick the mem card in to print pics and backup to CD/DVD for a few dollars.
