Digital camera transfer virus?

Heres what happened
Sister in law gets a virus on dell laptop, Needs me to look at it. Has AVG.
Connects her Sony cybershot digital camera using Sony type 2 USB wire with a 1GB memory stick pro duo to my similar dell laptop and I immediately get an AVG pop up saying I have a virus.
Is it possible she got a virus on her computer, transferred it to her memory stick, not affect her camera in any way, then transfer from the camera to my computer?
And if so, can I connect the camera to my computer and use AVG to scan the camera and remove the virus?
BTW- Think I AVGD, spybotd and ccleanerd the virus off my computer but still have to check hers.
PS - I also posted in the virus forum but no replies.
