Hi! my w850i does not read memory sticks any more although i have checked various MS and they all work fine on my reader, a w810i, and another w850i. sometimes when i reboot my phone, it would ask to format the MS but then it fails. i recently updated the phone using the update service of SE. but i am not sure if the problems started with the update. everything else works fine. do u think the internal reader hardware/software of the phone could be damaged? how can this be fixed? thanks a lot for any post.

It seems that the card reader if the computer is not detecting the card. Make sure that the memory card you use is supported. The multi-in-one card reader on the Aspire One can read and write to Secure Digital card (SD), Secure Digital High Capacity card (SDHC), MultiMediaCard (MMC), Memory Stick (MS), Memory Stick PRO (MS PRO), and xD-Picture Card (xD). Specific models of the Aspire One are also equipped with an SD Expansion slot that can read and write to Secure Digital (SD) and Secure Digital High Capacity card (SDHC) cards. The multi-in-one card reader on the Aspire One can read and write to miniSD, microSD, Memory Stick Duo,and Memory Stick PRO Duo cards but require the use an adapter. Acer does not provide or support any memory card adapters. You can try removing the card reader using the device manager and the reinstall it and check the operation. You may also try using the card is different computer and check. Also try using another card in the computer with the issue and check. If the issue is not resolved please revert back with the model number. Click on the link for the information to Reinstall a Device http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc725782.aspx
your camera is only available for use with a regular memory stick . it's not compatible with pro memory sticks (or ms greater than 256mb). so even if you you a memory stick adaptor with a 2gb ms, it will not work with cam. you'll need regular ms with has a maximum capacity of up to 128mb only.although those ms are no longer available from sony,you can do an internet search (like google) to check availability of the ms from online dealers.you can type in the ms models: msh128 or mshm128a.(that's a duo size ms w/included adaptor).you'll be suprise to find out it's still available online.hope this helps.tnx:)
to make sure the problem please insert ur mem stick to external card reader, if it can read ur mem stick so ur phone card reader had a problem and i think its hardware problem, but sometimes when system files(hidden files) in the mem stick is missing can make the same problem, so u better insert ur memstick to the same device that worked to really make sure the problem is (ur memstick or ur phone card reader), and u also can try to insert the memstick from that worked device to ur phone (just make sure problem solution) :)
To make things easier, you should buy a card reader. There are different types.
MS Pro Card Reader - Is ONLY for the sony memory cards
Multi Card Reader - Will read sD, xD, Ms Pro Duo, Ms Pro, Compact Flash, Smart Media, etc.
Sony has a new memory stick out called the memory stick pro duo. Your P73 does not take this. The P73 takes the Memory Stick Pro. Which is a longer stick. You can go out to best buy or ritz camera and buy a card reader (Memory Stick Pro) and stick your memory card into the card reader and stick that into your USB port on your computer. Since it is USB, this will require NO SOFTWARE.
Your camera came out in 2004. Vista did not come out until early 2007. A lot of software does not work with vista.
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.
