While maintaining compatibility with products incorporating a serial interface, the new Memory Stick media is also compatible with parallel interface products by simultaneously using multiple input/output terminals.

The total 256MB (128MB x 2) Memory Stick media with Memory Select Function is divided into two 128MB of storage space within the Memory Stick. Users can easily organise their files, separating their work files from personal files, or their images from their music files.
