I don`t have the software CD and can`t transfer my photos to my computer


Hello
if you dont have CD then an option to transfer data from phone to computer by a Memory Card Reader if you have SD card in your phone (most of phones do have). They will go by the name " 6 in One, 12 in one, USB Reader Writer or Flash Memory Card Reader Writer. They allow all memory sticks and cards to be recognized by your computer. On Windows XP, you just plug it in and find it as another drive on My Computer then just copy and paste the files you want to transfer.

Sd card format software


Start up a computer with Windows XP, Vista, or Windows 7. Insert the SD card into an external memory card reader or into the computer's built in card reader. If it the first time a SD card has been inserted into the computer, Windows will recognize the SD card and automatically install drivers to read the memory card.

Go to the computer view by clicking on the windows start menu icon in the bottom right corner of the computer. In Windows 7 and Vista click "Computer". In Windows XP click "My Computer"

Right click on the SD drive under the computer heading. A dialog box with different options for the drive will appear. Click on "Format" to bring up the formatting dialog box.

Select the type of formatting (also known as file system format). In Windows XP or Vista there are several choices including FAT, FAT 32, and NTFS. In Windows 7 there is an added choice called exFAT formatting. This is an improved FAT formatting type with improved meta data capabilities. Choose the formatting type, name if the drive if desired, check or uncheck the "quick format" option, and press the "Start" button. When the SD card format is complete Windows will provide a notification.

I got the message "Your Disk is Write Protected" when i go to format. How i format my Transcend disk. Please help me. Thanks.


Removing the write protection depends on the source of the problem.
Broadly speaking, it can be any of the following scenarios
  1. There is a write-protection tab on the mini sd card HOLDER. Every time you insert this into your PC or card holder, this tab slides to the write protect position. Either keep resetting, inserting & reinserting until it doesn't slide or tape it down.
  2. There is nothing wrong with the mini sd card. Simply locate the write protection key and push it.
  3. The mini sd card has some error: Go for a low level formatting.
  4. The card has virus: Remove the virus. The link for the steps is present in the related link at the bottom of the article.


There is an easy way to solve this problem: Simply put the yellow lock in the middle of its slider. No sticky tape required, as shown below. But if your still having the same problem i suggest you try the sticky tape.

problem is only that small moveable yellow lock switch is not making, just put sellotape over it maybe two layers needed to make switch.
== Answer == Even though what is written below may work, the problem is probably that on the card reader (if you have one) there is a small switch that has lock written on the side. If this is pushed down, the drive is write protected, push it in the opposite direction and it may fix your problem I had the same problem with several cards but eventually found a way around it. DON'T buy a new one!

Make sure the SD card lock is 'off' and then use thin, opaque sticky tape (ie non see-through; eg insulation tape) to cover the whole gap but keep clear of the metal contacts at the back.

Your card should work fine now... don't know why this has to be done, but it works! Additional info:
Reason #1,
the mechanical lock switch accidentally moves to the "locked" position during insertion due to the poor quality of the switch. Hence, by taping it, you are actually preventing the lock switch to travel towards the lock position. i.e. downwards.

Reason #2
If the above fails, it is likely your SD card reader/writer's fault. But don't discard it or buy a new one yet. Allow me to explain the mechanical design of the SD card lock mechanism. So that you may choose to repair it if you want to. You will need a small paper clip and screw-driver to open your card reader. (Don't proceed if your card reader is still under warranty, please return/exchange with manufacturer) There is a mechanical switch very much like a micro push button (I wish I could show you the picture/drawing). Anyway, depending on the position of the lock switch. You either push or release this micro push button inside the SD card reader.
Due to mechanical wear and tear, or some forceful insertion of the SD card, the micro push button is in its "open" circuit position, i.e. write-protected. In order to make the SD card reader writable, we will need to "close" the circuit. (Note: this is an irreversible process as I will be telling you how to remove the write-protection feature of your SD card reader. Once you do this, you would be unable to use the SD card lock switch to lock your data. So, just be careful not to accidentally delete your data)
To proceed, you need to remove the main circuit board from the SD card reader/writer enclosure. The location of the micro push button switch is the same location as the unlock position of the SD card when inserted in the SD card reader/writer. From the BACK of the exposed SD card reader, insert the unfolded paper clip (same way when you try to poke something like a device reset button) except, that it has to be long enough to allow the micro switch to touch together for contact. Then insert the SD card. Once the contact is "closed", your SD card reader/writer can write again. I understand that without a drawing, this may not be very helpful. Please provide suggestions or better explanation if you can. Thanks.

Or, just tape the lock switch to unlocked. This also works for SD cards in normal size. back up all the files u have on ur card then follow these steps

1. Go to Control Panel
2. Go to Administrative tools
3. Go to Computer management
4. From the tree menu on the left select Disk Management
5. Now on the right side you will have a list of all storage devices connected to your computer. Select the one that is your mini SD card. BE CAREFUL WHEN CHOOSING THIS BECAUSE YOU COULD FORMAT YOUR HARDDRIVE. Double check the name in My Computer
6. Right click on the SD card and select format. A new window will pop up showing format options. Select FAT32 from the file system drop down and check the quick format option and then click on OK
7. Enjoy your mini SD card without that annoying write protection

    Hi, my g1 has problem to read the sd card, when i try to use the camera, the phone says it does´nt have, and windows XP do recognize the phone


    Need a little clarity on what your saying XP does recognize the SD card when you mount the phone to the computer, or it doesn't?

    Well here is what you can try. and just remember ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS do this before removing your SD card from your phone.

    Settings>SD card & phone storage>Unmount SD card

    Now if your phone has "Unmount SD card" blacked out then don't worry about just go ahead and remove the SD card.

    Take the card and put it in a card reader and put it in your computer. Go to: Start>My computer> (and the drive corresponding to the SD card.) and then try to open it. If a window comes up saying something like drive E: is not formatted, Format now? and then Ok or cancel well if this comes up it could be one of three reasons; the SD card is not properly formatted, SD card is damaged, or the SD card reader is not working properly. So before trying to format the SD card try another card reader or try it on a different computer. If that doesn't work try to format the SD card. If formatting the SD card doesn't work, you may need to buy another one. If you do decide to get another one check Amazon.com they have good prices for the SD cards however if you prefer local buying best place to go (that I've found) is Radio Shack. They always have sales on the MicroSD cards. One other thing. For some reason. SanDisk Micro Sd cards seem to work the best for the G1. The transend cards are utter **** and worthless. Avoid buying them anytime your in the market for a new SD card or USB flash drive.

    I tried to reload the SD memory with the original DVD Nokia -Route 66. The SD has been reformatted but reloading does not work. Program cannot find SD memory.


    Hi, this comes very late - just surfed inn - but may be help to someone. To reload R66 from your cd/dvd don't download it, follow these steps in stead:
    1. Insert the memory card into the memory card reader/writer.
    2. Format your memory card in FAT (not FAT32).
    3. Insert the CD/DVD into the DVD drive. Select 'Browse Contents' in opened Route66 window.
    4. Select and open 'MemoryImage'
    5. Select the folder 'R66' and copy it to the formatted memory card.
    6. Remove the memory card from the memory card reader/writer and insert it into the Nokia 330 device.

    Now it should work, at least worked for me.

    Targus Universal 32 in 1 memory card reader/writer will not connect to my computer. I have Windows XP Proffesional 64bit. Is it a 64bit problem? If so are there 64bit drivers i can download?


    Guys...I was pretty upset when I could not find the driver for my Targus Universal 32 in 1 card reader/writer. That's what brought me to this site. However after reading under the "Technical Specifications on the insert (instructions etc..), I noticed that Windows 2000/XP/Vista computers do not need drivers. Says just plug in and use (which I was going to do in the first place).

    You have to put your card in it first and use one of the USB ports on you CPU (not your monitor..if you have that). IT WORKS GREAT!!!

    2GB SD card no recognized


    sir probably your 2gb is dead or not factory formatted... just take your receipts and take that back to where you bought it... if it is formatted probably its the same problems of those who formatted their SD with windows xp... that worsen your problem cause i think you just void the warranty of your SD card... try your SD to other card readers and if something pops like "your drive is not formatted... format i now... just click no"

    Had a similar problem running windows XP, it couldn't read my sandisk SD card on a usb sandisk imagemate reader/writer. The solution on Microsoft's site was worthless, having already applied all XP patches. Fortunately, I tried accessing the SD card under windows 2000 and it worked fine, so I formatted the SD card in windows 2000 and now it works fine in XP.
