I usually find how to unprotect it there.
I have SONY HDR-SR12 camcorder.
I lended it to my friend for his project and he was trying to transfer video files to his Mac, and he was unsuccesful. He said he tried everything but didn't work. I have no idea what he did to my camcorder but ever since I got it back from him, whatever he recorded shows up on lcd as saved file but when I press to play, it will say file is protected and would not play, nor I can't delete or transfer to my computer. Lots of previously recorded video files were also affected. My hard drive memory is at its limit and can't delete most of the files.
Can someone help?
