The Integral is working fine with the TV and laptop the Verbatim and another one I had wasn't .The Verbatim did not work when a friend tried it on his TV either. Hopefully this one I have bought will solve the problem. I haven't tried or used a Sandisk so I wouldn't know whether it would work or not.

Would any of them record from TV or is it a special sort?

Memory sticks are pretty stupid devices, it is the television that does the recording on the stick.

The question is what will you TV recognise, it may not be happy with any stick you put in it allowing for it not being a counterfeit piece of rubbish. Integral, Sandisk, Kingston are reputable names. However you TV may not be happy with all of them, and it may not be happy with stick with larger capacity.

Having said all that, you are going down the wrong route for recording programmes. Your TV may be able to have a hard disk attached to it (it was not a reliable solution for me) or you get a HUMAX box that you can attach between your TV and aerial etc. and that has a hard disk and its own tuner so it can record programmes when the TV is off.

It may be a problem with the way it's formatted. I have a couple of mobile CCTV cameras and use Sandisk USB sticks in them. I format them on my hard drive but 9 times out of ten the camera tells me to format them again which I do and it works fine.

Make sure it's formatted to the correct FAT.

Ochaye,this is only a temporary recording situation.I posted a problem before Christmas with my TV and Hitachi digi box. I have been monitoring them since then and more or less come to the conclusion that my digi box needs replacing.I will probably decide on the Humax that was suggested. Thanks again for all your help and replies.
