Clarification and correction: On above solution 1, I meant the switch to detect when a floppy disk is inserted, and not the other switch to senses when is protected.

The floppy driver has an internal switch that detects when the floppy disk is protected or not.

It is likely such switch is damaged.

It is necessary to open the camera and the floppy drive to fix it.

If you have experience and skills in fixing electronic devices, or want to try it, then you can try its repair.

The alternative is to pay to have repaired, but is more likely that the quote you will receive is to replace the whole floppy drive, which costs around $40.00 plus the repair labor.

I can not locate where the memory stick is located on my Digital Mavica MVC-FD85. pleaase let me know


I'm sorry to inform you that the MVCFD85 Camera does not have a Memory Stick slot. The medium using in the Mavica FD camera is floppy disc.
The MSAC-FD2M floppy disk adapter can be used in some FD Mavica digital cameras.
With the help of the above mentioned Floppy disc adapter, you can insert a memory stick inside the adapter and insert it in to the floppy disk drive on the camera.

How to shut off disk protect


The write protection is on the floppy diskette itself. Make sure the little sliding latch is covering the hole on the right side of the diskette. If you see through two holes on the diskette it is on write protect.

Not good, you will need a replacement floppy drive for the camera. It is a common failure point on the Mavica series. Sorry, no easy fix

Sony MVC-FD75 Camera won't accept floppy disk


It sounds as if the eject mechanism didn't quite do it's job last time it was used. It could be stuck half way between in and out. Try closing the camera and with a fully charged battery keep pushing the eject button and see if it clears the problem. You can imagine that after all those years dust and gunk has built up inside. It's just a bloody shame they can't build cameras today to last that long. At the worst all you'd have to do is pull the back off and have a good look at the drive mechanism. Or pick one up for $10 on Ebay and swap the drives over.
