Sony DSC-H5 Cybershot write protection

How do you remove write protection from pictures in the internal memory of the camera from your PC? I plug in the USB cable and open the folder where the pics are stored, select all and get a write protection error. I can manually remove one at a time directly from the camera, but can't seem to remove all the pics at once from the PC.

Thanks in advance!

    Available menus and read the manual...duh! Neither help, that's the point of reaching out to see if anyone who owns this camera has figured it out. And yes, I've been to the Sony website. That was fun, too! : )

    can't delete pics and folders, because of write protection. I can only reformat it through the cam's menu.

Camera has a "protection" option for the pictures. maybe it;s active. Put camera on "playback" mode and check the available menus. Also, I guess your camera came with a manual. Read it!

    OK, the in-camera memory is a "write protected" medium. You simply can't delete files using the PC. But you can delete all files using the camera. Simply start the camera in "play" mode, press "zoom out" so you get in the browser mode and then press "delete" button. You will get a "delete" menu on screen: "delete all in this folder / select / exit". I guess "all in this folder" is your option. Good luck.



    P.S. You also have the option of formatting the memory (go to main menu and choose the third menu from the vertical list)



    And all these are written in the manual... :) :P

How to transfer internal memory pictures on a DSCW70


Unlike most brands/ models of cameras, the Sony CyberShot (DSC) cameras feature internal memories, (not enough to hold sufficient data). If you took a few shots before inserting the memory card, the pictures are stored in the internal memory. You can transfer/ delete those pictures by the following steps.
1. switch off the camera,
2 open the battery/ SD card slot cover and remove the SD card.
3. close the cover and switch on
4. press the display/ preview button and your picture should be visible on the screen.

You can now do whatever you want with your picture.

Does this help? Please provide some feed-back if my answers do help.

Pictures were taken with my SONY CYBERSHOT 10.1 camera - but there was no memory stick in the camera. Now the picture are in the internal memory. I've tried to delete them, but I get messages that say they...


first of all remove any memory card you may have in the camera.. Then connect the camera to your computer using the USB cable provided. Then Switch on the camera, Once windows has recognised your camera, open up My Computer. There will be a removable disk icon appeared, open it up. Open the DCIM folder, then open the 101_SONY folder. This now has given you access the area where the camera stores you photos. select the first file by left clicking on it, then hold shift and left click on the last file, they should all now be highlighted. Now right click on the last file. and select properties from the menu. On the window that appears, deselect read-only checkbox and click Apply. Your photos will now no longer be write protected and can be deleted.

Hope this helps

Yes, you need to have memory stick because camera has limited internal memory that can store few pictures only.
Put new memory card, format it through camera Menu and copy internal memory pictures to memory stick, take our memory card from camera and delete internal memory pictures either one by one or format internal memory through camera Menu.
Thanks.

How do you upload pictures on the internal memory?


If you normally upload your pictures by connecting via the USB port, remove the memory stick before connecting the camera to the computer. If you normally upload your pictures by putting the memory stick into a card reader, use the camera's memory stick tool to copy the pictures from internal memory to memory stick.

I have a Sony DSC-H5 and the shutter button does not allow me to push it half way -- only all-the-way -- the macro won't focus.


It is a common problem on this model. You need to replace the control assembly to fix the problem. Here is a link to show you how to replace the assembly and where to get the part.
