    Yes and No.
    They are not directly compatible
    but it is possible to buy a
    PRO Duo sized adapter for Micro
    SD's.

    You can use Micro SD cards with a MSPD adaptor like the Photofast-5400. But these adaptors are really hit and miss, some work perfectly, some don't work at all. I have one myself and it works ok.

    Personally I suggest you use an actual Memory Stick. I use this which works nicely.

    Off-Topic - What the hell is with your custom statement Emigre?
    I thought you was a Sony fanboy?

    On-Topic - Yeah actual sticks are better.

    If you want cheap, REAL CHEAP go to DealExtreme
    and pick up a fake. Otherwise they can be a bit pricey sometimes.

    But most people wouldn't recommend a fake.

    MSPD prices are a bit of a pin compared to SD but don't go down the ebay route. There's a relatively good chance you'll get a fake stick. Personally I say just use the 4GB stick or get an 8GB. I use a 4GB myself and I honestly struggle to fill it up.

    @ Emiger - Ah ok I swore I saw you post a heap of stuff which was
    definite fanboyism to Sony. I guess not

    @ OP - If you want to pirate get a 8-16GB stick.

    However, DX offer the poorest quality fakes that you can have corrupt or fail on you. They hardly even bother to disguise that they're fake.

    If you're going to get a fake, at least get one from somewhere that makes half an effort.

    I did manage to find one on DX with good reviews
    and people stating they didnt notice the difference.

    Although come to think of it that could be
    fabricated reviews.

    Do NOT ever but from a DX site or something like that when buying memory. Go to a real store and buy a real stick because you will end up with a 16GB stick for $10, take it home, realize its partitioned into three 6 GB portions and 2 of them are bricked off. and the other 6 are cheap and will break in 4 months of use.
