The Handycam in question is the Sony DCR-SR33 Model.

According to the Specs. below, I would have to say No, Sorry.

Any specific reason you need it back on the Camcorder?

The Camera is AV Enabled meaning I can connect to the TV. It has its Microphone and the others you mentioned as well.

I could be wrong.
It uses USB Mass storage Devices, So it should be a matter of Drag & Drop.

Also when I try to move the file onto the drive its saying the disk is white protected.

Yeah I think so too a friend of mine suggests theres a "Protect Data Setting" enabled somewhere on the camera Ile fish it out.

Could it be the "Empty Function"?

I think the "Empty Function" is like adding Zero's to get rid of the Data (your mpg's & jpg's) For when you sell on the Camcorder i.e. Totally Erase what's on the Hard Disk.

Well every aspect is worth a shot.
