I have a Memory Stick slot on my Sony Vio computer. Is it possible to get a Memory stick adapter for Compact Flash Cards?I found one forMemory Stick Pro, but not the older Memory stick. I'm not sure if Pro will work in my computer. Thanks.

Can't find one, sorry.

Have you a spare usb port ? If so it would be cheaper to get a CF card reader (or multi card reader).

Given that, if I'm not mistaken, memory sticks are limited to 128 mb, I would say there is a good chance no one makes them. Even if they do, it will be of limited use unless you make some fancy device that is able to switch between different regions of the CF card to access, the first 128mb, then the next 128mb then the next etc etc etc, which will of course cost too much to be worth it.

P.S. Not to mention it will be very difficult to make since a CF card is not divided into blocks of 128mb (to my knowledge) and even if it is, if you've used it in a normal CF reader, you could easily have files crossing between the 128mb blocks and filesystem issues which will be hard to overcome.
