There are two types of adapters that convert Memory Stick PRO Duo cards to Memory Stick PRO formats: single-ended and dual-ended.
A single-ended adapter connects only to one end of the card. It cannot read both ends of the card at once, so you will need to insert the card into the reader from only one side.

A Memory Stick is a portable flash memory storage device that is commonly used with handheld devices. Sony pioneered the use of Memory Sticks in cameras, camcorders, and other digital photographic equipment. Sony introduced Memory Sticks in 1998. Sony said in 2010 that it will introduce SD card capability to upcoming models. Memory Sticks can also be found under various other brand names including MicroDrive, Flash Drive, and USB drive.
There are two different types of Memory Sticks: CompactFlash (CF) and MultiMediaCard (MMC). They are almost identical in size and performance but MMCs cannot be inserted into CF cards' slots so they are generally used in smaller devices where space is limited. However, some large devices such as camera backs may have separate slots for each type of Memory Stick. In this case, you should use the smallest possible Memory Stick that will fit the slot.
Memory Sticks come in several sizes from 8GB to 128GB. They are removable batteries that can be inserted or removed while your device is on. There is no need to turn off your camera or move any switches when replacing the battery. The battery life depends on how often you use your camera but it typically lasts for at least 100 shots on average.
Memory Sticks can hold about 500 photos depending on the resolution you use. After storing so many images, the Memory Stick will eventually fail due to lack of memory.
