    Hi guy and girls,
    I've had this problem for about 3 months, basically since I got a new SD card, my SE Xperia Ray's Camera/Video recorder simple tells me "SD write protected" whenever I try to use them and will not let me record anything. The same goes for my Gallery.

    In order to get round this, I use a 3rd party Camera and gallery. However there seems to be no video recorder on the market, can anybody help?

    Many thanks.

    Hi ash, I don't think I've seen a 3rd party video recorder unfortunately. Have you tried clearing the cache and data of the camera app via the applications menu?

    Settings - > Applications -> All -> Camera -> Clear Cache/Data

    I tried this but no luck. I have no idea what to do next.

    I believe the app LG Camera might have the ability to let you record videos. You could try that?

    Failing that, I think you might need to contact Sony/a repair centre I'm afraid.

    Hi Ashhow,

    Have you tried another card, and also

    have you made sure the switch on the SD card is not in the lock position.

    Hi I tried to LG Camera and it worked, cheers for that.
    As for the lock position, my phone uses a micro-SD so there is no lock on it.

    You may also want to try backing up the content from the card to a PC then formatting the card:

    Main Menu > Settings > Storage > Unmount SD Card > Format SD Card.
