Why Memory Stick™?
Sony's vision is to expand the world of communication, promoting the portability of digital data. The
Memory Stick™ is the resulting medium, through which digital devices can be instantly connected. With it,
you can download data from any compatible device, then transfer it to another in a single and instant
The main advantages of the Memory Stick™ are its:
❑ Compactness: with dimensions of just 21.5 mm (W) x 2.8 mm (H) x 50 mm (D), compatible products can
also be small, lightweight and attractive in their design.
❑ Capacity: Its data capacity far exceeds that of a floppy disk.
❑ Security: its lock option means you can protect your data from accidental erasure.
❑ Versatility: memory capacity ranges from 4MB up to 128MB (the equivalent capacity of 88 floppy disks).
❑ Reliability: by way of protecting the hardware and its contents, the number of terminals is reduced to
only 10 pins. This, and the overall robust structure of the stick, gives it a longer lifespan than other
❑ Durability: the same Memory Stick™ can be used tens of thousands of times.
