Question about Sony 2GB Memory Stick PRO Duo Memory Card

1 Answer

Copying computer pix to memory stick

I have a new Sony DSC-S730 with a 2GB Memory Stick Duo and was excited that I could copy older pictures from my computer onto the memory stick. I did it and sure enough, I saw those pictures on my camera! FANTASTIC.

However ... I took some files off the memory stick and then couldn't copy anything any more. The pictures would go onto the stick and when connected to the computer I saw them however I couldn't see them on my camera.

So tonight I bought another memory stick thinking now I could copy again but ... I could only see three of the 10 or so I copied. The rest said "file error" when trying to see them on the camera.

Why is this such a problem when the first time I copied them I was able to see them on the camera fine. Also, I'm quite sure the first time I copied pictures from my computer onto the stick I didn't have to change the name I had given them. Tonight I could only view the pictures when I changed the name I'd given them back to DSC######.

What IS the problem ... shouldn't this be easier? Help!

The resolution is probably incorrect for the camera LCD. try changing their size to a standard size like 640x480 with a resize program.

How can I download pictures from my Internal Memory from my Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W100 to my computer?


Two options: If you normally transfer your pictures by connecting your camera to your computer, remove the memory stick from the camera before making the connection.

Alternatively, if you use a card reader to transfer the pictures directly from the memory stick, use the "Copy" command in the "Memory Stick Tool" submenu to copy the pictures from the internal memory to the memory stick. The Memory Stick Tool and the Copy command are described in the "Memory Stick Tool" section of the manual (beginning on page 53 in my copy). If you need a manual, you may download a copy from here.

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.

How do I change from internal memory to external memory on my camera?


Hi,

You can copy all the images from the Internal Memory to a Memory Stick Duo media using the COPY option in the Memory Stick Tool Menu option.

Please insert the Memory Stick Duo media with sufficient free capacity into the Camera.
Select MENU--> Settings-->Memory Stick Tool-->COPY-->OK.

The original images in the Internal memory retain after copying. You may have to delete the contents of the internal Memory. Remove the Memory Stick media after copying, then format the internal memory. FORMAT in Internal Memory Tool.

You can only copy the images to the new folder created on the Memory Stick Duo which is created automatically. You cannot copy the images to a specific folder.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Have a new sony dsc-w120 cyber shot camera. first digital camera and have no clue. also have memory stick duo. can i transfer pictures directly from the camera to my mac computer using usb...


OK,
Camera has small inbuilt memory that can store few pictures. You can copy these photos in memory stick by inserting memory stick in camera, go to Menu >> Copy >> Yes.
Memory stick stores many photos depends on its size and let memory stick in camera, hook it with computer and transfer photos from memory card.
Thanks.

Getting my pictures back onto my camara


Connect camera with computer with USB cord, power up camera, computer will recognize it and if you installed Sony image mixer software that will prompted, close it, click My Computer, click removable Disk, click folder to open it, now you can copy pictures from computer and paste here but be careful about picture file name should be DSCxxxxx some thing, if you have already changed file names then camera will not show these picture in playback mode though pictures would be on memory stick.

How to?.....


You should be able to transfer the images directly to your computer without transfering them to you memory stick duo. Have you tried connecting the camera to your computer and retrieving the images? If you would rather have the images on your camera on your memory stick duo, then remove the memory stick duo connect the camera to your computer, copy the images off of the camera, turn the camera off, put the memory stick duo back into the camera, plug the camera back in, then transfer the images that you just transfered from the cybershot to your computer back to the camera. They should copy directly to the memory stick duo.

Memory Stick error c:13:01


The problem is compatibility - or lack thereof. The older Sony cameras such as DSC-S50 (I have one), which used the original version of the Sony Memory Stick, can't read the new Memory Stick Pro - even with the "Duo" adapter.

I don't know all the specifics but it has to do with how the memory chip interfaces w/ the camera, how the data is transferred -- newer models of chips/cameras use a different, faster method for data transfer which the older cameras/devices can't do. Similar to "serial" vs. "USB" vs. "USB-2" issues with older computers.

So, sorry to say, but if you have a DSC-S50 camera like I do or similar older model, you're stuck w/ the standard Memory Sticks - which I have just discovered are very hard to find any more. I just finished a sweep of all major electronic stores/outlets in my area (silicon valley - where there's plenty of them), plus many web sites. And all you can find new, now, are the Pro/Duo chips, 1GB & up.

Anyway I hope this helps!
