    hi there
    my father has bought a sony dsc -w1 and needs to upgrade the memory stick for a long holiday with no download facility , the problem he has is related to the "magic gate" wording on the majority of memory sticks and memory stick pro's. the instruction manual wording is confusing and i wondered if any one can help.
    the manual states that "Data recording/playback that requires MagicGate functions cannot be performed with this camera" does this mean that if i buy a card with magic gate technology the magic gate stuff wont work, but the stick will still record images and videos (just not copyright them) - which is fine ! - the reason i ask is that i seem to find more memory sticks with the magic gate wording than any others...
    sorry if i've missed something really straightforward but would appreciate any advice before i buy the wrong thing ! :confused:

    As far as I know the magicgate sticks will work as a basic mem stick on cameras that dont support magicgate functions. I havent seen any of the normal 'non magicgate' cards for quite some time so assume the magicgate ones are simply replacing them.
