    Another noob question, this time about memory stick duo and duo pro
    for the Sony DCR-DVD505 camcorder. I assume the advantages of a memory
    stick are the camera doesn't have to write to a mini-DVD and the
    memory stick be read by a computer? Does the memory stick require a
    compatible slot in a PC or is there an adapter for USB or otherwise?
    In an initial search on I saw memory sticks from 1gig to
    16gigs (though 16gig sticks were around $200, half as much as I paid
    for the camcorder). What size is recommended? I assume they can hold
    both still images and video? Any other advantages of a memory stick?
    Thx again.

  2. The FireWire connection is used for video transfer from the
    camcorder (NOT from the memory chip) to the computer...
    Stills can be read into the computer with a USB device that
    has an appropriate slot for the chip type you use.
