Format memory card without losing album on Sony Cybershot DSC-N1

I have protected three videos on my memory card and would like to format the camera to get rid of them, but I do not want to lose the album pictures. I do not want to press "format" in case I lose them all. Any ideas?

    Thanks but I haven't explained the problem properly. I already have the pictures from my camera on my computer but I like to keep some on the album to show people. I know that if I format the camera to lose the protected videos then I will lose the album photos as well but I am hoping there is a way to keep the album. Very confusing I know but I will probably have to delete the lot I expect.

    Sorry but I did not realise it affected your feedback. I have been looking at my booklet properly and now realize that I can unprotect the protected files and that has solved my problem. Many thanks for your help.

    Why do you rate this as a thank you for tring it is the only way to do what you are tring. It should at least have been a 3 if not a 4 and then you ask how to copy them back to the camera. I would help you but I do not want you to give me a 2 for a fix like you did to rattmur. Format the card after you unprotect the video files then copy the pictures back to the camera. If you have edited the pictures You may need to save them to you hard drive again before format for your camera to read them. By edit I mean even If you changed the files name.

The only way is to upload the pictures to a computer first.

    If the files are already on the computer, then you could just format the card and then copy the files on to the memory card from the computer again.

Sony cybershot dsc-w130 keeps showing "reinsert the memory stick" when i try to take a pcture or adjust telephoto when i do it does not make any difference


I have a Sony Cybershot DSC T70 and it keeps saying "Reinsert memory stick" whenever I turn on the camera or slide down the camera lid. Also, whenever I try to view the pictures on my laptop it shows "Please reinsert the memory stick" something along those lines. As I have been researching for the solution, I would have to format the memory card. However, I wouldn't want to lose the pictures as I just took many as from the holiday last week. The only problem is the memory card, I tried using another memory card and it works fine with the camera. There is nothing wrong with the camera.\r\nCan someone please help me how to solve the memory stick problem? It would be great. Ty.

Error message: Reinsert the Memory Stick"


The problem is with the memory card. It probably just shorted internally and is no longer useful. The amount of memory is not the problem, as I used a 4GB card for a long time and my card finally went bad. You will just have to get another memory card and MAYBE find someone to be able to retrieve your data.

My camera sony smart zoom dsc-p43. everytime i


Hi there
First of all check to make sure the cards write protect is off, take the card out of the camera, face the card towards you, look for a small white tab on the left hand side of the card, to unlock it push the tab down, it will be at the side of the card like this 59a6de4.jpg .
Pop it back in the camera and try to format the card again, if you get the same error message again there could be a chance the card is damaged.

Good luck and thanks for choosing FixYa!!

Please be noted that your camera memory should show as a drive letter in your explorer, if not, you need to take out your memory card and connect using a card reader, or plug-in to card reader slot if there's any on your computer.
