Try to right click on the drive and format it.
its likely corrupt so the error is incorrect.
if you have a usb memory reader that may be required.

    not likely once its corrupt what you see is what you get.

    take the card out and put it in a usb memory reader to see if there is
    any difference . you may even have a bad memory card. there are a lot
    of cheap inferior 1 gig memory cards that never work right.

    the fix they were talking about was for individual pics have write
    protection the error your really getting is corrupt memory card
    but they have no error in the camera for that its just supposed to work.

    you can just put the card aside and get another.

When i try to delete a picture it says that it is protected


Unprotect the picture first. Press MENU, select the Playback tab (right-pointing triangle), then "Protect images," then press the SET button. Select the image to be unprotected and press SET.

Full details are in the "Protecting images" section of the manual (page 129 in my copy). If you need a manual, you many download a copy (and more) from here.

How do I delete pics in a protected file on my sony camera


Hello,
There are two ways to delete the protected files.

1. Formatting the internal memory or "Memory Stick Duo" erases all data stored on the recording media, even if the images are protected, and these images can not be restored.

2. Just select the protected sign (key) to turn it to gray from green. Then press OK button shown in the below figure. The center button is OK. If you press again, it turns to green to protect your file. Press again to unprotect it.

That is all.

Write Protect Error Message


Sounds like you will need to format the memory card. This will permanently erase all the data from the card and then you will be able to use it again. To format the card: Press the Menu button - right arrow to Setup- right arrow to format option. You will see format yes or no. Choose Yes and press ok. This will clear the write protect message and the card can be used again.

However if you need to save these images first: As long as the xD card was not formatted it is possible to recover the images that were accidently erased,lost or corrupted. You can go to the following website link and download an image recovery software program that is free of charge.

You want to download a program called Zero Assumption Recovery. It is a very simple program to use and many people have had much success in recovering lost images.

Data recovery is a booming industry, and many appropriate services and software can be found by searching regional phone and business directories or the Internet for terms such as "image recovery" or "data recovery".

Write protect message appears on screen


Sounds as if the memory card may be corrupted. In order to remove the write protect, make sure you have downloaded and saved all of the images from the memory card to your computer and then having the card in the camera you will need to run the format option and this will permanently remove the write protect as well as all of the images from the card.
The card should be able to be used again after the write protect is removed.

I hope this helps, but while reading my manual (cuz somethings wrong with my camera) I found the answer to your problem...
The cause said its from a camera malfunction that you cannot reverse. The corrective action is.. Press the RESET button located on the lower right side of the control button, then turn on the power.
