    Can't say for sure for that particular camera. However, I've
    successfully read the
    stick from our workplace's digital camera by using usb-storage. Once you
    modprobe the usb-storage module, plug the hardware into the USB port, and
    the contents of the stick should show up on device /dev/sda1. (Of course,
    you'll need to mount /dev/sda1 somewhere in order to be able to read it.)

    Hope this helps.

    err... so you have a board that plugs into PCI, and presents a connector
    for the memory stick, perhaps on a 5,25"-slot front panel, or on a desktop
    device attached to the PCI card's rear plate - is that right?

    If it's basically a PCI device, please start by sending us a listing of 'lspci'
    from your computer with the board physically installed.

    From there on, we might be able to say more.

    I confirm that USB-storage is an option, if both your PC and your camera
    have a USB port and if the relevant gods had a good sleep last night.

    There are actually 2 "sony memory stick drives" - With or without
    "magic gate technology". magic Gate is Sony's attempt to implement
    DRM, and accessing a magic gate stick requires special drivers/code
    that Sony has no intention of releasing - you need to use the really
    crappy windows software that they sell you. Standard Sony memory stick
    should work like all of the CF etc. drives - it's a filesystem device.
    You need to find out what you're trying to do.

    I seem to recall that memory sticks w/ magic gate are white and
    nongate sticks are blue, or possibly the other way around.

    I can't tell you for RH9 specifically. For RH8, I bought a USB reader. After
    making sure USB software was in the kernel, I watched the messages file when
    trying to mount the memory stick. I had to modify one of the kernel files to get
    it to recognize the code that the device/memory stick was returning. Not a big
    modification, but just copying a particular section and reinserting it with
    the appropriate code in place.

    If modifying kernel files isn't your cup of tea, then I can't help.
