I want to know if the write protection on a HDD camcorder can be removed. For example i have a sony dcr-sr55e and when i connect the camera to the pc and try to do anything with the videos on the hdd exept copying it doesnt let me. :fou:  So basicaly the hdd in the camera can only be used by the camera (writind, deleting, copying). I would GREATELY apreciate any help!! :D  :wahoo:  Oh i forgot to mention that the memory stick's that i put in the camera canot be touched when the cam is used as the memory card's reader. If i put the memory card in my psp it works (i CAN put stuff on it wrom my psp but not from the cam).

Sory for my bad english but i am bulgarian and sory for not making sence at the end but i'm sooo sleep deprived trat i think i'm going to faint so i better post this soon.... :sleep:

Just copy the file to your computer. If you can't make changes to the file itself... RIGHT CLICK on the file, click PROPERTIES. and under Properties, there should be a check box for READ ONLY. Uncheck the box, hit APPLY, and you should be set..

AFAIK no camera/camcorder allows you to edit the images/vids on the camera HDD/SD Card,etc. You need to copy it to PC then do the editing. However, some cameras let you save/copy a finished file on to a SD card,etc.
