Re: memory cards not working
Do you own any other cards? its would be worth the 5 bucks it cost for a really small card.
I cant remember can you take pictures without the card?
im sure not, seems how you just stated you used the card that came with it and they normally either stor internally or come with one of this little ones.

Consider NOT connecting the camera to the computer.
The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.
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. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.
Quick fix... Roll a little piece of paper up or fold into a small square the set it on top of the memory card and tape that down. so that it puts pressure on the card and keeps it seated in the slot. It sounds like the spring inside the camera is broken. which you will need to have sent out to be repaired unless you have a local camera repair person. And that is going to take about a month. Actually more... unless you find a local repair person. Because Sony bought out minolta a couple years ago and shut down all the minolta repair centers and got rid of almost all their parts. I once had a customer who sent in a minolta to get it fixed and it took about 8 months to get it back. Because of parts.
So You will probably want buy a new camera. but there are still a lot of those Minolta's around on clearance and you can get a great price.
Hope that helps,
