Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-D770 Digital Camera

2 Answers

Sony DSC-D770 and IBM MicroDrive

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.

Recently purchased Sony Cybershot DSCW180. Took 3


Yes, you need to have memory stick because camera has limited internal memory that can store few pictures only.
Put new memory card, format it through camera Menu and copy internal memory pictures to memory stick, take our memory card from camera and delete internal memory pictures either one by one or format internal memory through camera Menu.
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".

LLFTOOL is a utility for low-level disk drive formatting,

1. Download this tool:

2. Format memory card

(WARNING: After running this low level format tool,
the whole USB flash disk surface will be fully erased.
Therefore, data restoration will be impossible after using this utility!)

Copying computer pix to memory stick


The resolution is probably incorrect for the camera LCD. try changing their size to a standard size like 640x480 with a resize program.

have you tried formating the memory stick on the computer and see if that works? how did you put the pictures on the computer? via the USB that came with the camera? or did you use the memory stick and put it into the camera?

Memory card


Hi - no, the DSC-P7 isn't compatible with Memory Stick Pro, only original Memory Stick, meaning you're limited to 128MB/stick. Having said that, the P7 is only a 3.2MPixel camera, 128MB will hold quite a few pictures, even at full resolution.

Which memory stick ?


Several of the Sony cameras require a high speed memory stick for 640 x 480 30fps movies. Here is a clipping from the Sony P150 specifications: "MPEG VX Fine with Audio (640 x 480 at 30fps), (MPEG VX Fine requires Memory Stick PRO media)"
