    Looks like the 2nd one is more for video, with a fast write speed.

    The Pro Duo is a smaller unit. It is not interchangeable with regular Memory Stick Pro units. It is only about 1/2 the size of normal memory stick units. It is used for digital video and cell phones where space is extemely limited.

    Let me rephrase what I said:

    Memory Stick Pro is not interchangeable with Memory Stick Pro Duo. But...if you buy the adapter, you can use the duo in place of the regular memory stick pro. My sony digital video cam uses the duo, and I have to insert it into an adapter to be able to read it in a memory stick reader.

    Edit:When I get home tonight, I'll pull out the Duo, put it in the adapter, and see if it works in my little Sony Cybershot that takes a normal memory stick.
