Compatibility of Memory Stick PRO Duo models with IC Recorder ICD-MX20

Applicable Products and Categories of This Article


Thank you for your continuous support for Sony products.

It has come to our attention that the following symptom may occur in the IC Recorder ICD-MX20 during its recording operation onto the Memory Stick PRO Duo model MSX-M512S (512MB) :

When a user executes the DIVIDE operation during the recording mode and records onto MSX-M512S, there will be a possibility of no recording for a few seconds’ duration at the top of the following voice file.

This symptom will not occur if the DIVIDE operation is only executed during the playback mode of ICD-MX20, and not during the recording mode.

Even though MSX-M512S is recommended for use in the instruction manual for ICD-MX20, we would like to announce the change of the recommendation shown in the instruction manual and ask users not to use MSX-M512S with ICD-MX20.

For users who have already purchased MSX-M512S for use with ICD-MX20, and experienced the symptom described above, we will replace the MSX-M512S with an equivalent model of Memory Stick PRO Duo which is compatible with ICD-MX20, free of charge.
