If you want to format your Memory Stick Duo memory card while it is inserted in the Sony Ericsson phone, you may get an "Memory or Application In Use" error.
The correct way to format the memory card is to first change the USB port mode on the phone to File Transfer mode while it is disconnected from the Windows PC. Then connect the phone to Windows PC. It will be visible as a Disk Drive in Windows Explorer. Right Click and format it.
try using a pc with card reader / writer to format the memory stick pro duo and then try it again in camera it should work........If you have troubles formatting the same using a PC as well check if gets detected as removable disk and then try using a antivirus to scan it and if you find any virus, remove it first and then format it. it should then work.............
the memory stick has to be formatted with the device it is to go into or it may not recognize it Format the stick with the camera. If this is a Web cam then format the disk in Windows with a SD memory card adapter. Can be found on Ebay for small price
Hi there, 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...
I was having the same problem with my 4GB memory stick pro duo, when i took more than 50 pictures with my camera (dsc-w90) i would get the blue screen with the file error message. I'm guessing you bought the memory stick on ebay right? I bought mines there and it turns out it's a fake one. If you also bought it there then you most likely have a fake memory stick because I found out that most of the memory sticks sold on ebay are fake, to help you figure out if you have a fake one or not check out this guide or google fake memory stick pro duo.
