SOURCE: HOW CAN I REMOVE RIGHT PROTECTION ON MY MEMORY

It has no write-protect switch. You must have done something wrong that's why your getting an error. Back-up your files from that MS and format it.


The format may not work the first time, so you need to try it again and again until it works. The best thing to do is to restart your computer if the format fails.

Camera keeps telling me to reinsert the memory card. I've tried to new cards. When I put the memory card I was replacing because it is full, it goes back into the camera just fine.


As a last resort you could copy the full card to a computer and then delete the pictures on the card and use that again.

Here is the error list from the camera manual.
This is all I can suggest from here.

"Reinsert the Memory Stick Error"

Insert the "Memory Stick Duo" correctly.

The inserted "Memory Stick Duo"cannot be used in your camera
(See below).

The "Memory Stick Duo" is damaged.

The terminal section of the "Memory Stick Duo" is dirty

Compatible cards.

Some Memory Stick Duo have a write protect switch on the back.
You cannot record, edit or delete images if you
slide the write-protect switch to LOCK with a
fine-tipped object

Accidentally switched my sandisk memory to 'lock'


Locking the card simply protects it from writes. It does not wipe out anything that was on it already.

If you're asking about a Memory Stick, there's a switch on the back. Slide it away from the "LOCK" position. If you're asking about an SD card, there's a switch on the side. Slide it toward the metal contacts.

The adapter has a tiny switch on the side opposite the notch near the pins.

Want to copy some files to a memory card from a laptop but it says that the memory card is write-protected. how do i remove the write-protection to copy the files.


Some memory cards are having a write protection switch integrated on the side or on the back of the memory card for preventing the content from being erased or overwritten by accident, just like floppy disks. Both SD Memory Card and xD-Picture Card have their write protection switch on the side of the memory card in contrast to the Memory Stick PRO and some Memory Stick Duo that have their switch on the back of the card.

The SmartMedia Card is also supporting write protection but not with a switch. For protecting the SmartMedia Card's content you need to put a sticker on the card's write protection pad. It is the circle that can be found in the middle of the card, when facing the front of the card.
