    Hook the sony pro duo up to a computer using usb. Now click Start Menu, click Computer, click Removable Disk(the one the duo is on), click Avchd, click Stream.
    Now you should see all the recorded files (they have the small movie icons).
    RIGHT Click on the first file, go down and select Properties at the bottom. In Properties box, UNselect Read-only.
    A pop-up will ask if you want to change all the files, press YES.
    Now all files can be deleted, moved, written and formatted.

There should be a lock switch on the card, most likely on the left side. Slide the switch into the opposite position and see if this fixes the problem. If not, try formatting the card from your camera and then attempt to load it on to your computer.

How to remove write protection from sony memory stick pro duo


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.
Memory Stick Duo (without MagicGate)
Memory Stick Duo (with MagicGate) *1 *2

NOT compatible
Memory Stick (without MagicGate)
Memory Stick (with MagicGate)
MagicGate Memory Stick

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.

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
