Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-W1 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Is a "high speed" memory card necessary?

More specifically, for the sony memory sticks PRO duo cards. In what seems to be classic Sony style, they've come out with a multitude of different memory stick options, some big, some small, some you need an adapter for, some are high speed, some aren't. They're all over the place, but to get to the point; Is it necessary to have a high speed card, if you own one of their high end digital cameras and expect to take lots of video? Does it really make that big a difference? Thanks, and sorry for the ramblings.....

In the case of the SONY stick. Yes. The original sticks were too slow for some applications.

I need a sd card and cable for sony f 717


Your Sony uses a memory stick called Sony Memory Stick Pro which they don't make any more, it was replaced with a smaller card called Sony Memory Stick Pro Duo, go to ebay and buy a adapter called Sony Memory Stick Pro Adapter it is sliver in color with blue color at the end. Once you get ahold of that adapter, you can now buy the new smaller card called Sony Memory Stick Pro Duo and insert it to that adapter, then slide the adapter with the new smaller card into your camera.
I have several older Sony digital camera that I converted to use the newer Sony Memory Stick Pro Duo cards, it works great ! I checked your Sony model on Ebay and you have to scroll down a bit to see those adapters I just mentioned, some sell with the adapter and the newer memory stick already included in the price.

WHAT memory stick do i use for a DCR-PC9E


You probably need the old-style memory sticks, as this is a fairly old camera, or an adapter. See this article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Memory_Stick
Adaptors are cheap : http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Memory-Stick-Pro-Duo-Adapter-/251482939281?pt=UK_Photography_MemoryCardReaders_RL&hash=item3a8d8d1f91 is but one example, there are lots for sale out there or your sony shop may have one.
You may have to check to see if the camera is capable of reading and writing to a card of 4GB size, but as you have already bought it, it's worth a try.
Hope this helps.

    • 1 Visit the Sony Support site (see Resources) and download the Sony memory card software. You will need to specify your operating system. Save the file to your desktop.
    • 2 Double-click the downloaded file to launch the installer.
    • 3 Follow the onscreen instructions to install the Sony memory card software. Restart the computer after completion. Once the computer starts back up, it will recognize the Memory Stick Pro Duo when inserted into the computer's memory card reader. You can browse the files using Windows Explorer or the installed x-Pict Story software.

My memory stick pro duo won't fit into either of the two computers I have available to me, because it's too small. When I try to put it in, it just seems to be way too small.


I advise buying an inexpensive card reader, that accepts different forms of USB flash drives, including yours.

You just plug the USB cable of this card reader into your computer, and insert your Sony memory stick.

How about this one for an example?
