Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-D770 Digital Camera
I just bought the new Sony DSC-D770 and I can take about 12 high resolution pictures on the included 8MB memory stick. I bought a 340MB Microdrive which LOOKS like it should work according to the Sony spec -- it is 3.5/5 volt and fits into the slot. But all I get is Error 13 when I try to use it and Format Error when I try to initialize it. The drive works great in Sony's parallel port PCMCIA reader and a notebook computer. I have tried formatting it, chkdsk, precreating the directories, but nothing works. Does anyone know if the drive is compatible with the camera? If yes, any idea what's the problem with mine? If no, are there any other drives that will work? I also haven't been able to reach anyone on Sony's technical support line. Thanks! Bob

Drive is not compatible, the camera reads the drives ID as a hard drive and is programmed not to allow a hard drive as the camera does not have enough current to supply a hard drive.

No, from what I have been reading, it isn't compatible. Other users report an Error 14. Sony does say in their manual that not even all PCMCIA cards will work.
