PIC chips use flash memory and you can erase and rewrite single
memory locations. They are supposed to give up after 1000 writes
whether that be single location or block.
Dunno about sony chips but it is at least remotely possible
that they support single location erase.
There are PC adapters for the more common (non sony) type of
camera memory because the non-sony type is compatible with PCMCIA
through a very simple pin converter. As for sony, they make good gear
but tend to be compatible with sony and nothing else.
