SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

By mistake, I removed the memory card(Scandisk PRO DUO) before clicking the 'eject' icon on my computer. Now my Sony cyber shot tells me to reinsert the card. Did I mess up the card already?


It probably got corrupted. If your pics are safely downloaded to your computer and you don't need them on the card anymore, just format the card in the camera to get it to work again.

My memory stick does not have a lock or unlock position.


Do not use the computer to erase a memory stick. If your pics are safely on the computer and you want to completely erase the stick, use the format function in the camera.

Retrieving used memory space off DUOPro stick that can't be viewed on LCD or computer.


You have a bad sector on the memory stick.

Download the data to a computer and format the stick.

Good luck.
