How are you trying to get the photos off the memory stick? Are you using an adapter to read it from the USB port on your Mac?

My friend just puts the sticks back in his camera and then loads them on iPhoto same problem the Mac has an SDHC card reader/writer and Sony's Duo is well for the most part a priority card from them or you could get a multi card reader for the Mac.

I would invest in a USB card reader.

First i tried using the usb cable that came with it (that worked before) It says USB Mode on my camera now and thats it. Then i tried putting the Memory stick in the mac. My mac reads Sd cards but not this card.

How much would a card reader cost. And how does it work?

You can pick one up for about $15. Basically you just insert your Memory card into the Card reader and the Card reader plugs in through USB.
