Having captured a short MPEG movie on my camera (4mb memory stick) I attempted to view the movie through Sony's provided PictureGear Lite version 3.2. However, only the still images appear in the view windows and no MPEG movie appeared at all. I'm using the Handycam Serial Port Adaptor (MSAC-SR1) that came with a Sony DCR-TRV10E PAL DV Digital Handycam, that comes equipped with a Memory Stick.
Any clues from anyone??

Are you sure it is your charger and not the battery? (Batteries)
You could buy a new Sony charger, but there are lots of universal camera battery chargers, that won't cost as much and you can use it for every battery from every camera. Pick the right one and you have a charger for years to come, whatever your new camera will be and how big or small the batteries are.
USB will only download still photos or movie shorts stored on a card. eg memory stick.
If no card is in the camera then no connection.
If you wish to capture movies stored on the tape, you will require a firewire cable to connect.
Use iMovie to capture the footage or another Mac application like Final Cut if availble on your Mac.
1) Make sure that you're not using more than 4 GB memory stick pro duo with the camera. Then try to remove the memory stick and capture 2 images in the internal memory and turn OFF and turn ON the Camera and check. If the error message comes, its the issue with the Camera itself and requires service after resetting. to reset the Camera, select Initialize under Main Settings 1 menu under Settings. if the issue persists, the camera may require service
If its working fine, transfer all the images to the Computer and format the memory stick. Formatting will delete all the contents. If the issue persists, memory stick should be replaced.
The official line from Sony is that all devices that take memory sticks will be compatible with future sizes of memory stick. This was a major design consideration for them. If that is the case, then I applaud them for that as it pretty much future-proofs the devices as far as memory is concerned (Sony say that they'll have 256Mb memory sticks by 2001, i.e. in the next 14 months or so!).
So I would say yes, the F55 should be compatible with all the new memory sticks that are coming out.
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)"
