Memory Stick for Sony Digital Camera DSC-S50

I'm looking at buying another memory stick for my camera. I'm confused at the phrase "your camera does not support the MagicGate standards...your camera is not subject to MagicGate copyright protection" in my owner's manual. Does that mean I can't use the Sony MSA-128A as a replacement? Should I buy the SanDisk SDMSV-128-A10 instead? Thank you for any help.

Hi, I'm going to add this, and I'm not sure how to word it. Magic Gate, Magic Pro those terms signal to me that the device is limited accessing only 128 Mb at a time. You have seen the memory sticks advertised as 256 Mb, and they are 2 X 128 Mb with a physical switch that must be turned to access the other 128 Mb of memory. Those devices that are Magic Gate and Magic Pro compatible allow all the memory to be accessed at one time. Hope that helps.

Camera keeps telling me to reinsert the memory card. I've tried to new cards. When I put the memory card I was replacing because it is full, it goes back into the camera just fine.


As a last resort you could copy the full card to a computer and then delete the pictures on the card and use that again.

Here is the error list from the camera manual.
This is all I can suggest from here.

"Reinsert the Memory Stick Error"

Insert the "Memory Stick Duo" correctly.

The inserted "Memory Stick Duo"cannot be used in your camera
(See below).

The "Memory Stick Duo" is damaged.

The terminal section of the "Memory Stick Duo" is dirty

Compatible cards.
Memory Stick Duo (without MagicGate)
Memory Stick Duo (with MagicGate) *1 *2
MagicGate Memory Stick Duo *1
Memory Stick PRO Duo *1 *2

NOT compatible
Memory Stick (without MagicGate)
Memory Stick (with MagicGate)
MagicGate Memory Stick
Memory Stick PRO

Some Memory Stick Duo have a write protect switch on the back.
You cannot record, edit or delete images if you
slide the write-protect switch to LOCK with a
fine-tipped object

The disk is write protected


You only can use Memory Stick Duo. There is a write protection switch on the memory card, you only can switch with a sharp point. Ball point or something like that. Have a close look on the card.
"Memory Stick Duo", "MagicGate Memory Stick Duo" and "Memory Stick PRO Duo" are equipped with MagicGate functions.
MagicGate is copyright protection technology that uses encryption technology. Data recording/playback that requires MagicGate
functions cannot be performed with this camera.
So if you have a MagicGate one it does not work and could give this error.

My memory stick does not have a lock or unlock position.


Do not use the computer to erase a memory stick. If your pics are safely on the computer and you want to completely erase the stick, use the format function in the camera.

Have Sony CyberShot DSC-F707 Sony Memory Stick Duo Adaptor and Sony Memory Stick Pro Duo 4gb When installed get C:1301 error


Hi,

In DSCT1 Camera, the C:13:01 error message indicates a Self diagnostic message. Each of these codes indicates the symptoms and resolutions of the Camera. In C:13:01, the issue is with the Memory Stick being used in the Camera.

The Symptoms are:


Memory Stick Pro Duo 4GB is not compatible with the DSCF707 Camera. Maximum capacity supported by the Camera is up to 128MB. Please try using a MS with 128 MB and check if it works. A dedicated adapter (MSAC-M2) must be attached to use Memory Stick Duo or MagicGate Memory Stick Duo media.


Thanks.

Why does my DSC-P31 Camera won't accept Sony memory MSAC-M2?? and what are the list of memory stick that compatible to DSC-P31?? thanks


It is an old camera. It was introduced in 2002. The spec's I looked up just say memory stick, and memory included "8MB Memory Stick". I looked the MSAC-M2 up on line and it looks a like it's a "Memory Stick Duo Adapter" not a memory stick. I'd try one that is sold as a "Memory Stick".
