You'll need an adapter to convert the Micro SD card into a normal size SD card, slot the Micro SD into the SD card adapter and then plug that into the computer.
Most computers then pop up a box to tell you that you've plugged something in, so you can then browse what is on the card.
Double clicking on the items on the card will then enable you to view the images/items.
Easiest way is to insert micro sd card into your phone, copy all pictures to it, remove it and put micro SD card in your computer. If your computer doesn't have micro SD card slot you can buy an adapter that plugs into USB.
I had the same problem with an HTC Aspire ( I think that's what it was called :} Anyway I formatted the micro SD card in fat 32 through my laptop using a micro sd to sd adapter and the sd card slot on my laptop. I then stuck the micro sd card back into the HTC and it worked. I heard formatting through another phone works too. Try it and let me know.
You don't need the SD adapter in your mobile phone. You may use it by inserting the micro SD card into the SD adapter, then insert the SD card adapter in a "SD card reader" and use it in a USB slot in your computer to access files from your "micro SD card".
It might be broken. TO check, insert it into another phone that requires micro sd card. OR insert it into a micro sd adapter, then put it in a SD card reader, then connect it to your computer and see if it can be read. If your computer can read it, format it then try it on your phone again (All files will be deleted when you format it). If all devices can't read it, then that is the end of it.
the card could be formatted incorrectly or you put it in up side down or it is not completly snug in the socket
to reformat the card you will needa micro sd adapter or a micro sd USB adapter if your computer does not have an sd card slot then put the card into your computer and it should show up as a thumbrive style storage device you can then right click and reformat DOING SO WILL ERASE ALL DATA ON THE CARD this works in windows xp and 7
-this phone seems to have a micro sd card slot - you can insert a micro-sd card and transfer the photos to the card, then read the card on the laptop with a reader that supports micro sd. so, you should check into the laptop and see if it has any card readers built in since you may need an additional adapter or device in order to connect the micro sd card to the laptop. some micro sd cards will come with adapters to the larger sizes of mini and standars sd card, which may help. you might also have luck putting the card from the phone into some other connectible device (ie a camera) and move the files in that manner - but depending on your hardware and software this may not be a viable option (inexpensive to try, though, if you already own some compatible device)
if you are holding the phone with the camera lens toward you, the micro sd slot is on the right side ...owners manual pgs 11,12
the adapter does not go into the phone
the adapter you got should be the size and shape of a regular sd card...this is for insertion into memory card reader/writers...the micro sd card fits into the top of the adapter....it just makes it easier for you to transfer images to and from your computer or separate digital camera that holds a full size sd card
