I now have a Palm LifeDrive PDA which uses a Secure Digital (SD) memory card.

I previously had a Sony Clie PDA and do have a Sony camera both of which use a Memory Stick (MS) card.

My question is whether there is any converter which will allow me to plug a Memory Stick into the SD port on the LifeDrive?

I've never seen such direct converter, but you may use PC with universal converter to transfer your data between two cards.
It's about $11: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=7609105252

Thanks Nopius for your suggestion. I actually have such a device and so can swap files OK. I was hoping to get a converter as I have a couple of MS accessories which I would like to be able run on the LifeDrive.

Is there no other slot available on the LifeDrive?

With current prices of SD-Cards, you may also think how much worth it is to you to use the memory-stick in the LifeDrive, wich will stick out a bit, and will be easier to damage.

The LifeDrive has an option for a digital camera, connecting it to the Mulit-COnnector, maybe you must look if there's an Memory-stick adapter for that connector.
what type of accesoires do you have?

I'm thinking about buying a LifeDrive to replace my old and trusty Palm III
How is the lifedrive performing,
