How to remove protected pic

i glanced through the manual but didn't see anything specific. usually the same process as 'protecting' can be used to remove protection from an image or images. additionally, formatting the card will remove even protected images*.

Not Able to Transfer Photos

To get things clear for me, some questions. Do you use a Memory Stick Duo? As you know you can't use a Memory stick in your camera.
Can you see any picture you shot, on the display of the camera?
Did you protect the pictures in the memory and then did a format?
Because format will not look to any software protection, you really lost all pictures.

If so, there are some programmes, that could possibly restore your pictures, if you did nothing more than formatting the memory card.

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

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.

I hope this helpful.

How can i delete a 'protected'picture?

If only one picture is protected, you could download the others and then format the card in the camera.Also, in almost every camera that has the ability to "protect" an image, it also has the ability to remove that protection. Just go into the playback menu and find something to do with "protect" and follow the directions to cancel the protection.

It powers on but then beeps & won't work

You need to remove write protect tab on the mini DV tape you are using in Handycam. If it still doesnt work after removing the tab then take out the tape leave the camera off for few minutes and try another tape (dont forget to remove write protect tab).

If this helps, please vote...thankyou and good luck!

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.
