Do you know where i can find this information?\015

I could not get my floppy disk out and the paper sticky that describes what is on the disk got stuck. I had to get it out with a tweezer. The spring load would not push it out. NOW, I cannot put my floppy disk back in. It stops at a certain point and I do not want to push it. I have a Sony MVCFD81 and I love this camera. I need it fixed. How much and how long does it take? Thank you, Sharon A. Miller

I have a digital Sony Mavica FD-95, when I insert a floppy disk into the drive, it reads as "disk protected" when the disk is not protected. Also, when I insert the adapter for the memory stick [64 meg] it reads "disk error" [flashing: C:13:01]. [Disk Protect] In both instances, I double confirmed that the media was NOT write/copy protected & I have replaced the batteries in the MSAC-FD2M memory stick/floppy adapter. Can this be fixed?
