Disk Protect Problem

I have a Sony Mavicap MVC-FDR1. Suddenly, I cannot save to new floppy disks. The "Disk Protect" sign appears on the screen whenever I try to save a photo. If I put in a disk that already has photos on it, I can save additonal photos on that disk. But, you cannot erase an incorrect picture. I have tried to format the disk....will not let me format. I have checked disk type...they are exactly the same as old disks. I have checked...the lock tab is in the unlocked position. What is going on? Is there a setting that can the accessed to remove this protection? Can anyone help?? Thanks, RVerrette

SOURCE: Disk Protect

Try to use a can of air and blow out the inside where the disk goes. The sensor may be dirty.

The first thing to check is the floppy disk itself is not protected, what this means is on the left/right corner of the floppy disk is a little tab that can be moved up or down. Check to make sure the disk is not locked (usually symbolized by a lock symbol on the disk). If that does not work, you might have a bad floppy drive

When a floppy disc is inserted it flashes disk

The floppy driver has an internal switch that detects when the floppy disk is protected or not.

It is likely such switch is damaged.

It is necessary to open the camera and the floppy drive to fix it.

If you have experience and skills in fixing electronic devices, or want to try it, then you can try its repair.

The alternative is to pay to have repaired, but is more likely that the quote you will receive is to replace the whole floppy drive, which costs around $40.00 plus the repair labor.

Can not put 3.5"disk into my FD85

This is an old model of Sony Movica and you can copy all floppy disk pictures in computer.

In your camera floppy drive is defective and requires replacement but floppy drive of MVC-FD85 is not available any more. So bet a new digital camera and think MVC-FD85 is history now.

How to shut off disk protect

The write protection is on the floppy diskette itself. Make sure the little sliding latch is covering the hole on the right side of the diskette. If you see through two holes on the diskette it is on write protect.

Keeps saying disk protect

These old electronics tend to be tempermental, just like my old 1988 Nintendo....when the problem persisted, I held the disk slot open and went Nintendo-style on it (blow the dust out of the disk slot). That cleaned off the disk reader. I put the disk in, and it started reading the disk instantly.
