Question about Sony Ericsson Walkman W810i Cellular Phone
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...
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...
