    I just got a DSC-H20 and haven't set it up yet. I was reading the manual and it says 'When you insert a Memory Stick Duo without a management file into the camera and turn power on" it may take some time for other operations to be performed. Does the camera have to create management files for all Dou or Pro Duo Memory Sticks and if so how long does the process take?

    If you let the camera (regardless of brand) format the card for you, then that usually sets the card up for ultimate performance, with that camera. The days when all cameras are perfectly happy with the generic USD mass storage format are drawing to a close.
