128mb Sony Memory Stick Duo

I have a 128mb Sony Memory Stick Duo, and it got corrupted so I decided to format it in my Sony Ericsson P800 but I keep getting the message "Cannot format (disk is write protected)". Unfortunately, this particular Memory Stick I have on hand doesn't have a write protect switch. I have tried formatting it on a card reader/writer on my PC but I also get a "write protect" message. Is there any way to get around this and be able to reformat it? Any assistance would be highly appreciated...

Hi there,
            This is a common problem and its quite easy to resolve.

I had a very similar problem with a friends nokia 5200 memory stick , it refused access to the card , i got the message disk is write protected I couldnt even access it from a PC card reader or format it .
             Somehow he had accidentally set a security code for the memory stick and the mobile then forgot he had done it , I tried the usual code of 1,2,3,4 and this didnt work.
                                                                         When I tried the number 1 on its own , suddenly I could access the memory stick again and format it and didnt get the message (disk is write protected)...Reset your P800 security codes with the master reset function in the main settings menu.This will remove any codes that restrict access to the memory stick...

I bought a new Memory stick for my Sony DCR-TRV320 Camcorder and when i switch my device to memory mode, it tells me "Memory Stick Error."


Check the following:
Memory Stick is inserted in correct position and orientation in camcorder. Try re-inserting several times.
Write-protect tab is switched to allow writing to memory stick (on back of memory stick)
Memory Stick is formatted in FAT file system (this should already be done except if memory stick has been formatted in a computer in a different format)
Memory Stick is not over the maximum capacity memory stick of the camcorder.
Memory Stick is not full.
Memory Stick is clean and dry.
The dcr-trv320 is a 2000 yr. model and came with a 4mb capacity stick and can probably only use up to a 128mb capacity stick or possibly 256mb. Most memory sticks you can buy today are 1GB, 4GB, 8GB etc. memory stick pro duo. and are probably incompatible. E-Bay has some of the old memory sticks like the 128mb for sale.
There is a slight possibility that static electricity discharge zapped the stick. Try another memory stick or try the stick in another device.

How to format memory stick


If you want to format your Memory Stick Duo memory card while it is inserted in the Sony Ericsson phone, you may get an "Memory or Application In Use" error.

The correct way to format the memory card is to first change the USB port mode on the phone to File Transfer mode while it is disconnected from the Windows PC. Then connect the phone to Windows PC. It will be visible as a Disk Drive in Windows Explorer. Right Click and format it.

Have Sony CyberShot DSC-F707 Sony Memory Stick Duo Adaptor and Sony Memory Stick Pro Duo 4gb When installed get C:1301 error


Hi,

In DSCT1 Camera, the C:13:01 error message indicates a Self diagnostic message. Each of these codes indicates the symptoms and resolutions of the Camera. In C:13:01, the issue is with the Memory Stick being used in the Camera.

The Symptoms are:


Memory Stick Pro Duo 4GB is not compatible with the DSCF707 Camera. Maximum capacity supported by the Camera is up to 128MB. Please try using a MS with 128 MB and check if it works. A dedicated adapter (MSAC-M2) must be attached to use Memory Stick Duo or MagicGate Memory Stick Duo media.


Thanks.

P800 memory


Hi,

I am sorry but the 1 GB stick is not compatible. The P800 can only use regular DUO cards (the biggest size being 128 MB). The 1GB is a PRO DUO.

Memory stick duo problem


Hi,

Yes it should work. Make sure that you are buying a DUO and not a DUO PRO (cause the DUO PRO won't work).
