How to Put a Memory Stick in a Sony Cyber-shot
Most Sony Cyber-shot digital cameras have the battery and memory card in the same compartment. (memory card image by PeteG from

All digital cameras, like the Sony Cyber-shot series of digital compact cameras, use memory cards to store the images they capture. In most cases, Sony designed its battery compartment to also have the slot where the memory cards can be installed. In some models, Sony's cameras can record to two separate cards at the same time. This allows photographers to record images as JPEG files and as uncompressed RAW or TIFF files. Inserting the memory cards from model to model is pretty much the same.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Turn the camera off, or confirm the power is turned off, and located the battery/memory card compartments. Most Sony Cyber-shots have their batteries and memory cards stored in the grip portion of the camera.

  2. 2

    Slide the locking mechanism to open the battery/memory card compartment. Swing the compartment cover door fully open.

  3. 3

    Insert the memory card into the compartment so the electrical contacts go in first. The slot for the memory card will have groves in it to ensure you are installing the card correctly.

  4. 4

    Guide the card into the slot until it slips into place. If your camera has a lock to secure the card in place, secure the lock, close the compartment door, and turn on the camera.
