With a Memory Stick-capable memory card reader a user can copy the pictures taken with the Sony digital camera to a computer. This one probably does not do SDHC but you probably have something for that already in case you need it. Despite this, Sony continues to support Memory Stick on certain newer devices through the use of adaptors.

However, the major change was the Duo format, which is half as thick and a third shorter than the original module (see images below). But I was pleasantly surprised again when I stuck the TransFlash adapter (with the Sony formatted microSD card) into my notebook computer. The Memory Stick PRO Duo (MSPD) quickly replaced the Memory Stick Duo due to the Duo's size limitation of 128 MB and slow transfer speed. I decided to format the microSD Card, inside the microSD to Memory Stick Duo Adapter, with my Sony gadgets. Memory Stick PROs have a marginally higher transfer speed and a maximum theoretical capacity of 32 GB, [b] although GB-sized capacities of more than 2GB are only available in the PRO Duo form factor.No Memory Stick XC cards were released to the market, likely due to domination of SD cards; its equivalent here is named SDXC and eventually became more successful than any other exFAT-based memory card format.

In 2003, the Memory Stick PRO came out with a little more transfer speed and increased storage capacity, eventually reaching into the gigabyte range. Sony was often criticized for the Memory Stick, as they were deemed to be expensive compared to other formats. In 2009, Sony and SanDisk also announced the joint development of an expanded Memory Stick PRO format tentatively named "Memory Stick PRO Format for Extended High Capacity".Memory Stick PRO Duo media and SD cards up to 64 GB have been tested and proven to operate with this product.

As of January 2010 [update], it appeared that Sony had begun to combine support for SD/ SDHC and Memory Stick formats in their products. In spring 2001, Memory Stick attained 25% market share (against CompactFlash's 40% and SmartMedia's 32%), up from 7% a year earlier. Take a look at the " microSDHC to Memory Stick Pro Duo Converter" review article that is elsewhere on this site.
