Memory stick question for Sony Clie

Post by Ron » Sun, 25 Jul 2004 04:26:04

A friend just inherited a Sony Clie SJ130. He's happy as a clam but wants to
expand the memory. This model uses Memory Stick for expansion. He's been
told by Joe Salesman that he HAS to buy a Sony brand stick. This doesn't
make sense to me since Sony licenses the specs for Memory Stick to other

So, what's the deal? Will any brand work? Also, what's the difference
between Memory Stick and Memory Stick Pro (and any other incarnations)? And
before you berate me, I searched the web for this information until my
fingers turned blue. It seems to be some closely guarded secret.

In article <gDdMc.52675$ XXXX@XXXXX.COM >,

Others should work. You will need to check the specs, but I think the
SJ30 will handle up to a 128MB Memory Stick. If the specs say Memory
Stick Pro, then it should handle larger cards.

But it never hurts to be able to return it if it doesn't work for some
reason :-)

Try to get a Lexar Stick, which is by far the fastest.
