Question about Sony 2GB Memory Stick PRO Duo Memory Card

1 Answer

Can't read from the sony mem card.

I have a 2gb high speed memory card that I've been using for a little over a year with my phone. Recently I noticed I can't take anymore pictures with my phone camera because they were getting corrupted, so I took the mem card out of the phone and put it in my sony laptop that has a memry card reader. I was able to access all the files, so I copied them over to my pc and then put the stick back in the phone and that fixed the issue. However, when I tried to put my music back into the card using the laptop, I noticed the phone doesn't recognize it anymore. Now when I even put the stick in the laptop, it just gives me a pop up saying that I should format it, but the format fails. I've tried FAT, FAT32, and NTFS using quick and normal format. Is there anyway to fix this? and anyone knows if sony has any kind of warranty for these guys or what??

    You have to put music in the exact folder that is automatically created by your phone. The same thing for video or image and other type of files (if any). For instance, if you deleted all in your laptop you can't just copy image files on card and then put it in your phone. You should make atleast one photo with a phone,allowing it to create image folder (with that picture) and then put inside that folder other pics from your laptop..

Hello Sir

  • Insert your memory card into your computer's reader if you have one. If not, you can purchase a multi-format USB Memory Card reader from or
  • 2 Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives.
  • 3 Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive.
  • 4 In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'.
  • 5 Leave all the options as they are and click on 'Start'. This is a non-reversible process so make sure this is what you truly wanted to do in the first place.
  • 6 Once the process is completed, take the memory card out and insert it into your Digital Camera or any other device. Try to browse to it to make sure it works fine now.

    My computer can read the Lexar 1GB SD. But Kodak wont.

    I suggest formatting the card using the utility in the camera. This will delete any data that is currently on the card.

    Phone won't read sandisk memory

    I have seen this happen a lot of times with memory cards and formatting is the only solution for this and in the formatting options choose FAT32 as it seems more reliable than FAT. I have last formatted(FAT32) my card two years back when I had problems like these and I haven't had this problem since then.

    Inserting a 2gb micro sd mem card in lg webslider to have xtr spa

    You have to move each song/file to your external memory straight away after recieving it via bluetooth because it goes straight onto your phone memory. Seach your phone memory and move all photos, videos, music etc to ext.memory by selecting the file-select options in lefthand corner- move to external memory. If your phone cannot find your external memory then you havent formatted your memory card. Go to Settings-Memory Status(way way down the bottom of list)-External Memory-Format(lefthand corner). Just remember to move each file to ext. mem. straight away.Its a pain but you have to do it manually, the phone doesnt do it for you.

    check if your e2 can handle a 2gb mem card, most unit made three years ago cant handle even a 1gb mem card. check your unit capability first before buying a new mem card . [:0)
