What is a Memory Stick?
"Memory Stick" is a new compact, portable and versatile IC (Integrated Circuit) recording medium with
a data capacity that exceeds a floppy disk.
"Memory Stick" is specially designed for digital data exchange among "Memory Stick" compatible
devices.
Because it is removable, the "Memory Stick" can also be used for external data storage.
There are two types of "Memory Sticks".
One is the regular "Memory Stick" and the other is the "MagicGate Memory Stick" equipped with
"MagicGate" copyright protection technology.
"MagicGate" is a copyright protection technology that uses encryption.
