Question about Samsung SGH-E900 Cellular Phone

Memory card write protect?

I'm using a Samsung D900 phone (the pink version!), a Sandisk 2Gb MicroSD memory card, a Crucial Technology MicroSD adapter and a generic USB2.0 SD/MMC memory card reader, with a Windows XP IBM Compatible machine. MY problem is this: I can only look at files on the memory card with my pc, I can't delete from or write to the card using my computer. The error message: "Please remove write protect or use another disc" is not very helpful, seeing as i haven't turned write protect on, afaik.

Due to the fact that my mother stood on my usb bluetooth adapter, and my usb cable has gone A.W.O.L, I now seem unable to transfer files to my mobile. There is no write-protect switch on the MicroSD card, the lock is certainly off on the adapter, and there's nothing on the generic reader, so how have i write protected my card, and how can i UNwrite protect it?

Can I use a 8gb micro SD card in my Nokia 7390. If so how do I go about formatting etc.


The phone only supports 2GB or smaller capacity microSD cards. Walmart and Amazon both list SanDisk 2 GB microSD cards as in stock online. See http://www.amazon.com/SanDisk-MicroSD-Adapters-SDSDQ-2048-package/dp/B000OT94PO for one of these.

I've also seen the low capacity memory cards at a local grocery store.

The specs for the Nokia 7390 are available here: http://www.gsmarena.com/nokia_7390-1691.php . The manual is available here: http://nds1.nokia.com/phones/files/guides/Nokia_7390_UG_en.pdf . The Nokia approved microSD card is legalese to avoid responsibility if a badly manufactured card (cheap/counterfeit) does damage or fails to store your data.Go with a brand like Kingston or SanDisk that have a reputation of manufacturing good memory products.

I hope this helps.

LG Fusic 550 Sprint - Memory Card Error with 8 GB Sandisk MicroSD


Believe it or not, a lot of the older phones (an even the newer phones) will not support the 8GB memory card. Most of the phones on the market that support 8GB cards are the smart phones and PDA's. There are a few standard phones that support it but not many. Unfortunately, the LG 550 is not one of them. :o/

You may need to take it back and exchange it for a smaller one.
