Question about Sony Ericsson K800i Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Unable to read almost empty M2 512MB memory stick

Last night i got a call and noticed that the ringtone had reverted to the default and (instead of the mp3 i had chosen). i pressed the 'check status' button on the top right of the phone (facing up) and it there was no readout for the memory card. this had happened once before, so i just took out the memory card and put it back in to no avail (though my theme wallpaper was still up). i switched off and restarted it, but the phone gave a warning message that the contents of the card would be formatted, so i gave cancel and reinserted the card again then went to file manager and checked the 'memory card' tab and it says 'no memory card inserted'. i tried taking it out and putting it back in 3-4 times but it still cant seem to read it. also, after restarting the phone it had reverted to the default theme. my phone is only about a month old, and i've taken good care of it - haven't dropped it, gotten it wet, anything. please help

Memory phone full


hi
sometimes the ringtones from mthe card will go to the phone memory but this is not the problem.

the ring tones are small in size.

each program have to be set card memory or phone memory.

the picture or video is the biggest memory "eating"

i think this is your broblem you have to move all your picture and videos to the card from the phone and than set the phone to use the card for picture and video.

I have a memory card in my LG 365 neon and everytime i set the ringtone it doesnt ring in to that one...it goes to default..One time it will ring in right and the next time its as if i dont have any song...


Go into your memory card and move the photo and music file to phone memory.
Then select the ringtone for your profile.
Dexactly the same with the photo.

This will stop your phone reverting back to default.

Hope this helps and please rate, thanks

I have a motorola VE240 phone. I have downloaded ringtones in my sounds files. How do I take those files and use them as ringtones.


To take sound files you have downloaded you have to move them to the phone memory instead of the memory stick. Also you have to send the sound to a MMS msg to yourself and then save it. It is very stupid and annoying that the manufacturer Motorola did it this way, they really shouldnt be taking the ringtone companies best interests over the end users.

Ringtone problem


Hey,
U can only assign any mp3 ringtones only if it is placed in Phone memory. U need to make phone memory as default storage device. U can do it by going to options when in multimedia->pics/sounds/video clips.
