    I have a Sony CyberShot P92 camera, and I need a bigger memory (have 128MB
    currently), so I was planning to buy a 256 MB memory stick. But I see there
    are three (at least) versions - one double sided (2x128MB), one MSX-256
    Memory Stick Pro and one MSX-M256A Memory Stick Pro Duo.
    The Pro version seems to be considerably faster (according to the
    description), but I read some negative reviews about that one.
    And I have no idea about the difference between the Pro and the Pro Duo.
    Could please anybody explain and give any recommendations.
    Sorry for the newb question :))
    Thanks a lot!

    Hello, Rumiana!

    The Pro can only be used on cameras that support the Pro. The Pro Duo is
    physically smaller stick than the regular pro. But it can be used as a pro
    with the adapter that it comes with. The pro sticks can go to storage rates
    bigger than 128. Regular sticksd are limited to 128 MB. the 2x128 has a
    little a/b switch with 128MB available on A. Then you remove it from the
    camera and slide the switch to B and another 128 is available. They work
    great. I have 2 of them. The regular MS can be used on any MS camera. The
    Pro only on cameras that list it as useable.
