Audio systems Visual devices VAIO products CLIE handhelds Mobile phones. The generic Memory Stick, coloured blue. The MagicGate Memory Stick, coloured white.
You can purchase Memory Sticks from the Sony Style website (http://www.sonystyle-europe.com), or from your local Sony dealer.
There are currently two different types of Memory Stick:
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 transfer.
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 storage devices. Durability: the same Memory Stick can be used tens of thousands of times. Forward compatibility: the Memory Stick's current format is designed to be compatible with future products and higher capacity Memory Sticks.
The future of Memory Stick Memory Stick's potential is virtually unlimited, with the number of compatible products increasing rapidly in both personal and professional spheres. The introduction of the 256 MB and 512 MB Memory Stick is anticipated in 2002, and a 1 gigabyte capacity Memory Stick is expected in 2003. Additionally, the native transfer speed of the Memory Stick will be increased to accommodate the increasing capacity. By the end of 2002, Memory Stick's transfer speed will be increased by eight times to a maximum of 20MB/sec.
Generic Memory Stick
The original Memory Stick, blue in colour, can be used to record image data taken with digital still cameras, etc. or data from the PC. With it, you can record, play back and transfer various kinds of data at any given time.
Because it is easy to remove and transport safely, you can use Memory Stick anywhere by inserting it into any compatible device to transfer and share the information you have saved. For you, this means you can expand the capabilities of your VAIO computer in the following scenarios:
With your still digital camera, share your holiday pictures instantly by e-mail. From your handycam to your VAIO, make the most of your captured moments with the VAIO's movie editing tools. Carry pictures on you by copying image files from the Internet to your VAIO to your CLIE handheld. With your voice recorder, add your voice to e-mails so your tone is never misunderstood.
The blue Memory Stick is currently available with a 4MB, 8MB, 16MB, 32MB, 64MB or a 128MB memory (the equivalent capacity of 88 floppy disks).
Generic Memory Sticks cannot be used with the Memory Stick Walkman, or with data that is protected by copyright.
MagicGate Memory Stick
The MagicGate Memory Stick, white in colour, records PC and image data just like its blue counterpart; the difference is it uses the MagicGate copyright protection technology.
With this type of Memory Stick, also called the MG Memory Stick, you can enjoy the following features:
32MB, 64MB and 128MB capacity versions. Storage of up to 120 minutes of audio data. Download and save:
digital music pictures movies, and more.
Combine data files to add music to your home movies, for example. Transfer and share data between several digital products. MagicGate Copyright Protection Technology. SDMI (Secure Digital Music Initiative) Compliance. SonicStage software.
So that you further distinguish a MagicGate Memory Stick from a generic one, look for:
logo printed on it
a protruding dot located on the back.
MagicGate is a copyright protection technology that complies with the standards set by SDMI (Secure Digital Music Initiative, an organization working to draw up industry standard specifications in order to protect copyrights of digital music). The logo indicates the copyright protection system devised by Sony. It is not meant to guarantee compatibility with other media.
MagicGate MagicGate refers to the copyright protection technology used by the MagicGate Memory Stick and other MagicGate Memory Stick compatible devices. The Memory Stick Walkman and MagicGate Memory Stick work together to check the data and ensure it complies with copyright protection. If no problems are detected, the data is exchanged in encrypted form; if authentication is not passed, data cannot be exchanged or played back. SonicStage SonicStage uses copyright protection technology designed to manage the digital music content downloaded to the PC from CDs, the Internet and/or other sources. Software installed on the PC records music content in encrypted form onto the hard disk. As well as allowing you to enjoy music on the PC, this technology protects against unauthorized distribution on the Internet. Since it is compatible with MagicGate, you can use SonicStage to transfer music that you have downloaded onto your PC to your MG Memory Stick, and playback on other Magic Gate-equipped devices and media.
If the battery level falls below 10 percent, you should either attach the AC adapter to recharge the battery or shut down your computer and insert a fully charged battery.
Using Normal mode
This is the normal state of your computer when it is in use. The green power indicator light is on in this mode. To save power, you can turn off a specific device such as the LCD or the hard disk.
Using Standby mode
The computer saves the current state of the system in RAM and switches off power to the CPU. The umber power light flashes in this mode. To activate Standby mode, proceed as follows: Press the <Fn> and <Esc> keys simultaneously. Alternatively, 1 Click Start and then Turn Off Computer. 2 In the Turn off computer screen, press Standby. The computer enters Standby mode. To return to Normal mode, proceed as follows: Press any key.

It takes more time to return to normal mode from Hibernate mode than from Standby mode. Hibernate mode uses less power than Standby mode. Do not move the notebook until its power indicator turns off.
Using Wireless LAN (WLAN)
Thanks to Sonys Wireless LAN (WLAN), all your digital devices with built-in WLAN functionality communicate freely with each other through a powerful network. A WLAN is a network in which a mobile user can connect to a local area network (LAN) through a wireless (radio) connection. So there is no need anymore to pull cables or wires through walls and ceilings. The Sony WLAN supports all normal Ethernet activities, but with the added benefits of mobility and roaming. You can still access information, internet/intranet and network resources, even in the middle of a meeting, or as you move from one place to another. You can communicate without an Access Point, this means that you can communicate between a limited number of computers (ad-hoc), or you can communicate through an Access Point, which allows you to create a full infrastructure network (infrastructure).
In some countries, using WLAN products may be restricted by the local regulations (e.g. individual license, limited number of channels). Therefore, before activating the WLAN functionality, carefully read the Wireless LAN Regulation flyer. WLAN uses the IEEE 802.11b standard, which specifies the used technology. The standard includes the encryption method: Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP), which is a security protocol. Data encryption protects the vulnerable wireless link between clients and Access Points. Besides that, there are other typical LAN security mechanisms to ensure privacy, such as: password protection, end-to-end encryption, virtual private networks, and authentication. Wireless LAN devices using the IEEE 802.11a standard and the ones using the IEEE 802.11b standard cannot communicate because the frequencies are different. The standard access is 11 Mbps, or about 30 to 100 times faster than a standard dial up.
Connecting an external microphone
It is possible to plug in an external microphone to your VAIO notebook. To connect an external microphone, proceed as follows: Plug the microphone cable into the microphone connector identified by the symbol.
Make sure your microphone is designed for computer use.
Connecting a Universal Serial Bus (USB) mouse
You can connect a USB device (e.g. mouse, floppy disk drive, printer) to your notebook or to your docking station. If the main unit is docked, you can only use the USB connectors on the docking station. To connect a USB mouse to the notebook, proceed as follows: Plug the USB cable (1) into one of the notebook USB connectors (2) identified by the symbol.
To connect a USB mouse to the docking station, proceed as follows: Plug the USB cable (1) into one of the docking station USB connectors (2) identified by the symbol.
You do not need to shut down the computer before connecting or disconnecting a USB peripheral. You can connect the optional Sony USB mouse (PCGA-UMS1 series). As the driver for this mouse is preinstalled on your computer, you can use the mouse by just connecting it.
