Memory Stick PRO Duo is write protected

I have a SONY 2GB Memory Stick PRO Duo that is showing that it is now write protected. As far as I can tell it does not have a write protection area on the back of the card. Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you

    i have exactly the same problem. I have it inserted into my Sony Vaio using a "memory stick duo adapter" and successfully copied about 90 photos. Only 5% of the disc is full but suddenly i cannot copy anymore, i get the same error, tha tthe disc is write-protected. I do not see any place on this little disc to physically turn off or on write protection...help!

I had this problem and figured out a easy fix.

1. Take out memory stick from psp
2. Plug in usb to psp and start usb connection
3. Psp will recongnize there is no memory stick inserted
4. Now insert your memory stick and your good to go

For some reason you might have to repeat these steps everytime you want to access your memory stick.

Hope This Helps

This is a little bit complicated problem you have two options .
1.connect your memory card to computer and follow these steps.
a. go to my computer
b. then right click and select manage
c.then select disk management which comes under storage of manage
d.when you connect your memory card you can see its file system and other details there.
e.select your memory card there and click right click on it
f. and select format there. and opt for full format.
if this is not possible, then you have only one easy way claim replacement under warranty. for claiming warranty ,contact your memory cards nearest service dealer and ask him for replacement under warranty.

  • Flash Storage:
  • Memory Stick PRO Duo Expansion Slot pspphatmodelnumber.gif pspslimmodelnumber.gif pspbritemodelnumber.gif
  • Memory Stick Micro Expansion Slot pspgomodelnumber.gif
All flash storage, including Memory Sticks and internal flash, uses the FAT32 file system. http://us.playstation.com/support/answer/index.htm?a_id=1055

The above shows how to format the Memory Stick PRO Duo in the PSP so the correct file structure will be shown.

Be sure to back up any data on the Memory Stick PRO Duo before doing this as all data will be lost on the Memory Stick PRO Duo device.

All labels to face user. Etched out corner is always bottom left. Best to have good grip on the adapter before inserting duo card.
