I have a Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-S500 and a SanDisc Memory Stick Pro Duo 1.0Gig Memory card. I had over 350 pictures on the card this morning, and went over to my mother-in-law's house to show her our recent trip pictures and only 32 pictures showed up on my card... but one picture showed up as being over 1.88Gigs big and could not be opened??? I believe that maybe for some reason all my other pictures got shoved into one? Am I out of luck with regaining my vacation pictures or is there a way to get it done? Please let me know what options I have and if it's a problem with my card or camera. Thank you.

According to the users manual, the camera does not support above 512 MB cards, however I noticed that there is a firmware update which might address the issue. Go to www.sony.com and support, electronics. Put your model number in the selection box and you'll be taken to the drivers download page.
Most laptops that have a memory card reader will only read these types of cards, without needing an adaptor:
-Sony Memory Stick or Memory Stick Pro cards
However, you have a MS Pro Duo card, although it fits into the card reader slot, the card is a lot thinner than what's expected, so the laptop won't be able to read it.
You need to put the Pro Duo card into the stanard size MS Pro caard adaptor. See attached image.
Hope this helps.
