There should be a small plastic catch on the side of the card which allows you to write protect the memory stick pro duo. It should have an image of a lock or say locked next to it, if it is locked you won't be able to write to it. Slide it to the unlocked position using a fingernail or a paperclip.

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

The disk is write protected


You only can use Memory Stick Duo. There is a write protection switch on the memory card, you only can switch with a sharp point. Ball point or something like that. Have a close look on the card.
"Memory Stick Duo", "MagicGate Memory Stick Duo" and "Memory Stick PRO Duo" are equipped with MagicGate functions.
MagicGate is copyright protection technology that uses encryption technology. Data recording/playback that requires MagicGate
functions cannot be performed with this camera.
So if you have a MagicGate one it does not work and could give this error.

Hi Devika,
Buy a card reader that can read your memory card and connect to the computer. (Less than $8 in Sri Lanka). Connect it to PC and insert the card to the card reader.
Download Recuva and run it. select the memory card. Try to recover the files.
Best of Luck!

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.

HOW CAN I REMOVE RIGHT PROTECTION ON MY MEMORY STICK? I CANNOT FIND ANY SWITCH THAT CAN TURN ON OF OFF.


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.

Memory Stick PRO Duo is write protected


I had this problem and figured out a easy fix.

1. Take out memory stick from psp
2. Plug in usb to psp and start usb connection
3. Psp will recongnize there is no memory stick inserted
4. Now insert your memory stick and your good to go

For some reason you might have to repeat these steps everytime you want to access your memory stick.

Hope This Helps
