I have SONY VAIO PCG-Z505S and IDE memory stick works for me. 

There are only known problem with size of stick: 

If FreeBSD booted without inserted stick ata driver detects 4Mb disc and
only 4Mb stick can be read. 

Same problem present if you booted with, say 64Mb stick, and then want
read 4Mb. 

Solutions: 
  1. reboot with each new stick 
  2. install -CURRENT with atacontrol (not sure about atacontrol in 4.5)
then 
   # atacontrol detach 1 && atacontrol attach 1
  # mount -t msdos /dev/ad1s1 /m/stick
  # ls /m/stick
DCIM                    MEMSTICK.IND            gary_rex_tanner.m3u
