There are 50% chances to make it work again. It may need a so called low level format. A great tool for low level formatting is from HDD GURU, please google for hdd guru low level format and download the software. It is very easy to use, but please be very carefully when you choose the drive letter to be formatted, because otherwise it can format even the system disk. If this tool does not detect the card, it is almost sure broken for ever and it need to be replaced.
it means it is containing some virus...try to format it with some other system..but it is a frequent problem...try to delete the files while in the phone and format using the computer...its better to claim warranty if it has....
is this cleared your problem?
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...
Try a couple of these trial downloads, to see if the pics are recoverable, but it's possible that the psp formatted it to it's own file format.
