S75 & Mem Stick Reader Help

I had ordered along with the S75, and extra 64MB memory stick, an extra battery, and a Sony Memory Stick Card Reader. Those I received today. I was reading the manual on the Card Reader, and it definitely states, that it's not quaranteed to work with a USB Hub, which is the only place left I have to plug it into. It states the fact a number of times in the manual about not using it with a USB Hub, and says not even to hook it up with more than one device on a regular USB port, such as through a keyboard or mouse. Right now I have my main printer hooked up to one USB port on the computer, and a Powered USB Hub hooked up to the other USB port. On the USB Hub I have an HP Scanner and an Olympus Smartmedia Card reader (which are both working fine by the way). My secondary printer is hooked up to my Parallel Port. So now I'm wondering if I should return the Card Reader and get the Floppy Disk Adapter, which I know will be painfully slow, but maybe would not be as fussy as far as working okay. Or, should I go ahead and try hooking up the Card Reader to the USB Hub anyway. I'm a bit nervous about the whole thing now :( Is there anyone else out there who might be using the Sony Memory Stick Card Reader with a powered USB Hub? (I have a Belkin 4 port Powered Hub, running Win 98 SE). Or is there anyone out there who actually hooks the S75 right up to a USB Hub, and not an acutal USB port on the computer to download the Memory Stick? Any advice would be greatly appreciated as I am worried now that when I get my camera, I won't be able to download my pictures without a problem. I don't know if the camera itself would work with a USB Hub either. Thanks very much, Nancy :)

Nancy, sometimes it depends on whether your hub has its own power supply. Many USB devices are not "guaranteed" to work off a hub, though most of them do. The printers are notorious for needing the computer USB port. Try it in the hub. If it doesn't work, just temporarily unplug the printer from the computer USB port and plug in the card reader. It's not like it's something that needs to be plugged in all the time anyway. Unfortunately, this is one of the inconveniences we all face with USB devices.

I had the same concern a month ago when I bought my USB Stick reader. As you mentioned, the manual says there is no guarantee... I don't have a USB hub but I do use the USB port that I connect the USB Stick reader for other things. No problem. In fact I did not even have to use the supplied CD that came with the reader to install the driver for it. As soon as I pluged the reader to the USB port. Windows ME (yes I'm running WindowsME) found the device and install the built-in driver itself. Why don't you just wait until you get your camera and try it out first. Good luck.

I have a Sony DSC-S75 camera and I am having a problem finding a memory stick are any of the SDHC cards compatible/

The only memory card you can use are the Sony Memory Sticks. You cannot use a Sony Memory Stick Pro, so you have to find one that is under 512MB capacity and does NOT say "Pro" on it. You cannot use any other format memory card such as SD or SDHC.

My Sony DSC-S75 camera shows a format error when I insert my 128MB memory stick also blinking is C:13:01. Any idea's how to fix? Thanks!

Format error display shows memory card is unstable and need to be format through format option in Camera menu.
Format memory card, if that does not fix the issue, try another memory card in camera and check this memory card in another camera just to make sure either camera got problem or memory card is bad.
