    I have a Sony DCR-TRV11E camcorder which we bought in 2001 and cost over 1000.I have no intention of changing it as it takes great video but i would also like to make use of it's still image facility.
    The problem i am having is i can't find a memory stick to fit it.

    It came with a 32mb memory stick which looks like this

    Sony MSA-128A Memory Stick: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics & Photo

    However you can't get hold of them anymore :(

    What i'm trying to find out is would one of these work?

    Sony Pro Duo 4gb Memory Stick For Sony PSP & PS3: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics & Photo

    My logic is that the adaptor makes it compatible and slots straight into the camera as it is now the same size as the original.

    I've been researching this all day and can't seem to find the answer so i hope someone can help.

    We have the same sort of thing in one of ours and it works fine :) Ours doesn't go in a video camera but we have the old-style slots on the front of our computer and Dad's camera takes the small style card, so we use the adaptor when we put it in the card reader. Works great.

    ahhh but you said they dont do them no more and they do :)

    nah not worth it when the 4gb one is only 18 quid....you know id try one from argos if it dont work its so easy to take back they are great with that and what with the replacement ins too if it does go bits up you get it replaced no quibble

    Think i will just stick to a 1gb as the video camera might not support a bigger card as it's only for a 64mb in at the mo!

    They don't do 1gb at Argos and i'm not paying 30 for a 2gb as Argos isn't the easiest place to get to when i have to pick it up and return it!

    Just looked again at the card in there at the mo and it's only 32mb!
    It's got 331 pics on it at the mo so i'm sure a 1gb will be fine!

    It's only to take extra pics on alongside the digital camera.
