    Hi,

    not sure on the first one.

    The second was a "samsung" from e-bay.

    I have now bought him a Sandisk 2gb from morrisons for £5 .. ! yes, just £5 !



    We will try (re)formatting a bit more frequently and see how it goes.



    Cheers

What brand cards are you using. I've had a Sandisc 2 ultra II in mine nor for about a year and never had a problem. before that had a 1gb Kingston and again no problems. after every download I always format the card to start it freash so i'm always using that same part of the card.

If you don't format often i'd do so. You don't need to do a low level every time, i do mine about every 10th downlaod

I have a clarion nx501. The micro sd card that has the navigation on it is corrupted. the guys at clarion said that they can't cover this under warranty. please tell me what my options are. i heard...


Please read my post here: http://community.crutchfield.com/forums/p/22187/251957.aspx (pasted below).

I hope you bought your unit at a Clarion dealer....

Hi, (Team Crutchfield - please add this to your knowledg-base.)
I'm on my third NX501 (could have been the fourth if not for working directly with Clarion).
The SD Card corruption causes both loss of Navigation and intermittent Sirius start up (it'll never acquire signal).
Your unit needs to use the exact micro sd card it came with forever (it has a permanent serial number).
You have two choices:
1. Get Crutchfield to replace the unit
2. Call Clarion (I suggest this rather than ripping your dash apart over and over).
Here's what to do. Contact:
Ben Kwan
Customer Service Technical Representative
Clarion Corporation of America

800-347-8667 ext 4342
Direct Line: 310-217-4342
Fax: 310-217-4243
Ben will have you send your microsd and rebuild it for you and return it (likely with the firmware upgrade that addresses this issues on another microsd that can also be found here: http://clarion.com/ca/en/support/navigation_updates/NX501Fupdate/index.html).
While you're at it, update the Bluetooth firmware too: http://www.clarion.com/us/en/support/software/NX501/index.html
Once you get the card returned (THIS IS HUGELY IMPORTANT - EVERYONE WITH A Clarion NX501 SHOULD DO THIS!!!), back it up using Naviextras toolbox (the program clarion uses for map updates). You can get it here: https://clarion.naviextras.com/shop/portal/downloads
Once you follow these steps, barring your micosd physically or logically self destructing, you'll have an NX501 that's nearly problem free and backed up just in case that unfortunate corruption reoccurs.

Of Note: Ensure you insert the microsd card with the contacts facing up and do not force anything.

I'm extremely confident this will make a world of difference for you (and anyone suffering the microsd corruption of the Clarion NX501).
Regards,
Marc (mshmovie)

Can you recover pictures from a corrupted PNY SD 512MB card? If so how?


1. Do not save any new file to memory card.
2. Connect your card to computer. You should see memory card shown as a drive letter (like H:) in My Computer.
3. Download recovery software, recommended one is asoftech photo recovery (simply because i was using it and it worked)
http://www.asoftech.com/apr/
4. Install and open the photo recovery program, select your memory drive, and click 'Start' button to start scanning process which will find your deleted photos.

We have a client with the Sangean PR-D8, the problem are that its keeps corrupting the file on the SD card when recording using the Timer setting it show that its record but when complete the MP3 file...


I have similar problem with this set - recordings are corrupted. Every few seconds a fraction of a second is cut off. Probably it's a problem with SD card. Someone reported this problem in amazon.com customer review for Kingston 4 GB Class 4 SDHC Flash Memory Card SD4/4GBET

Corrupted memory card my samsung exclaim says no memory card or not inserted correctly..but it is...how do i fix this?


find an card reader for it (it's probably microsd, get and sd card adapter) and format it using a computer. when your computer recognizes the card, go to my computer, right click on the card (should be listed under removable storage), and select format (try FAT16 first, then FAT32). after it is done formatting, put it back in your phone, and see if that works.

if not, then you might have a bad card. try a different card. if the second card doesn't work, could be the phone.

good luck

Tom tom go 300 ''unable to store settings'' ''file access error'


Hi,
You might have the switch on SD card set to "read only" , This would stop your tomtom being able to write to the SD card ... hence , " unable to store settings " message . .... OR ... the folder where your tomtom wants to store the settings is corrupted ( on your SD card ) so it can't store them.... or similarly , the file is corrupted on the SD card ( maybe the card is damaged ) so the existing file cannot be overwritten . Check out all these possibilities before suspecting any hardware fault on your tomtom ..... GOOD LUCK

Samsung Digimax V4 jpeg problems


Did you try to copy the files to your computer first then open them? While the SD is in the reader, you should run a chkdsk on the SD drive to make sure there are no lost clusters etc. maybe the file table is corrupted...
