my mother just got a Sony DSC-H1 Cybershot digital camera, and it is my job to make it work. I dont know anything about flash memory aside from my little USB drive.
The spec says that the camera takes memory stick(MS) chips for expansion, but when I look at the flash section of newegg there are 4 types of MS (MS, MS Pro, MS Duo and MS Pro Duo). Will all these types work in the camera? and is there a better type of all the 4? All the prices seem pretty close withing weight classes so is there a best type for cameras, or a best brand, or should I just stick with Sony?

Does anyone have experience with how long it takes a 128 Mb or 256Mb chip to xfer pictures onto a computer? Would it be better to have 2 smaller chips for switching when one fills up and/or incase one fails? Or do you think one big one is just as good?

thanks, I didn't realize there was so much options in flash memory. Now I just have to find a card reader...

Sony memory stick pro or equivalent is always a good bet, Need one soon, because at the best quality setting you will only get 5 pictures from that 32mb built in. That will give you a rule of thumb. {about 16 good pictures per 100 mb.}
Spike's advice: Backup your data routinely.

okay, so is the pro better quality? and should I stay away from the duo and duo pro memory?

the 128 Mb chip said it could hold 96 pics at 2592 x 1944 resolution. This is the same resolution my camera image sensor lists. Would this leave the pics looking like crappy thumbnails, even though the res is at max?
