problems to access the memory stick files

Hi all, when I put my memory stick (which has a number of files it contains), it goes straight to windows live photos and doesn't give me any options with the stick. I've tried different USB ports, but it doesn't help


You can always close Windows Live Photos and open or Start - computer or Windows Explorer.


Check the settings of automatic reading - Control Panel - Auto-Play.

How to customize auto playback

I hope this helps.

  • move pictures from a memory stick in a different place, and release in addition to the memory stick. I find that the pictures (copies) are always on the memory stick

    I don't want to make copies, which I already have, I want to get out in addition to the memory stick of mnving content in a portable hard drive permanently. My photos are totally assembled in 3 different places in my windows computer (not my fault) Photo Gallery, I don't want the images there are... My collection is private.  Picasa collects all the photos again. I want the originals stored for future use in a hard drive laptop or on disks.

    I do not use the photo gallery, you just need a viewer to open the pix.

    Also, I don't know why you get 4 copies. Some libraries can be deleted if you do not use. I don't remember those that can be deleted, so you'll just to test.

    If I understand correctly: create a folder for the original user and another for the edited pix. After you have moved the pix on the flash drive, you can delete the content of this file and it is there and empty for the next round of pix.

  • Satellite Pro P100-327: memory card reader does not read the Memory Stick Duo

    I just received a P100-327
    aShop = true)
    According to this page, is supposed to have "1 x 5-in-1 Bridge Media slot (supports SD Card, Memory Stick®, Memory Stick Pro, MultiMedia Card, xD-Picture Card)", but the pdf manual that comes with it says that it supports not the Memory Stick Duo, Memory Stick Pro Duo or mini-SD.

    However, I have a Memory Stick Pro, and a Memory Stick Pro Duo in a Memory Stick Pro adapter, and the reader can't read one of them (they both count as Memory Stick Pro, which should be readable, right?)

    Would I be able to read my Memory Stick Pro cards? Why I can't because it says that I should be able to? Should I install something first?


    To my knowledge and according to the manual of bridge housing media supports media type
    -SD memory card
    -MultiMediaCard, xD-Picture Card
    -Memory Stick
    -Memory Stick Pro

    Please note that the Memory Stick and Memory Stick Pro are not the same in the Memory stick Duo and Memory Stick Pro Duo.

    Hi all

    My T130 has a bridge 5-in-1 Media Slot for SD card / Memory Stick / Memory Stick Pro / MultiMedia Card and xD-Picture Card.

    But how it should work with a Memory Stick? Its smaller SD card and just fall into the slot (no klick and no contact - and no easy way to get it out with your fingers).

    Do need me an adapter for this (mentioned nowhere in the manual)?

    On my old Sony Vaio, I have two slots, SD and Memory Stick - but how should this work with one slot on T130?

    > But how it should work with a Memory Stick? Its smaller SD card and just fall into the slot (no klick and no contact - and no easy way to get it out with your fingers).

    Hey Webb,

    Follow the suggestions below for a possible solution:

    Method 1: I suggest to change the Bill of Exchange to the drive and then try to connect the device.

    Method 2: I also suggest that you scan your computer with the Microsoft Security Scanner, which would help us to get rid of viruses, spyware and other malicious software.

    The Microsoft Security Scanner is a downloadable security tool for free which allows analysis at the application and helps remove viruses, spyware and other malware. It works with your current antivirus software.


    Note: The Microsoft Safety Scanner ends 10 days after being downloaded. To restart a scan with the latest definitions of anti-malware, download and run the Microsoft Safety Scanner again.

    Important: While running scan on the hard drive if bad sectors are found on the hard drive when scanning try to repair this area if all available on which data may be lost.

    I hope this helps.

    To share the file or folder with some people but not others, in the toolbar, click on share with, click specific people, select each person you want to share with, and then click Add. When you are finished, click on share.
    To change the level of access to a file or folder, in the toolbar, click on share with, and then select group residential (read) or homegroup (read/write).

    Method 2:

    Try to remove the sharing protected by advanced sharing settings change password.

    I was manually copying my photos my iPhone6 on my PC (Windows 10) and deleted the. AAE different associated with JPEG images files before copying them, because I had deleted these same files previously after transfer to my laptop without a problem. I see that now I can't open/view all JPEG files.
