What are you trying to format the card in?

I find the best way is always to do it through a card reader on my PC - right click on the card and press format, assuming you are using windows. If this still fails, try doing it in a digital camera that takes the card. Otherwise there may be something more serious with the card.

Oh and also very important, have you perhaps inadvertently locked the card, there would probably be a small grey flick switch to look and unlock the card.

Hope this helps

Micro sd 2gb tidak bisa format


Hallo scorpio, semoga solusi ini membantu

If the micro SD format fails, do not you repeat the formatting process. Because it will exacerbate the damage to the micro SD. Follow the steps below. Good luck.

All you have to do is:

Step One:
To save data, use EASEUS Data Recovery software (free version - 1GB of data recovery). how:
1. Download and install EASEUS Data Recovery
2. Choose Complete Recovery - Next
3. Choose the drive micro SD - Next
4. Save the data to the hard disk (max. 1GB)
5. Because of your micro SD 2GB, repeat the process of recovery (repeat step 2, 3, 4)
After all data is secure, do the process of removing the micro SD password

Step Two:
The first alternative - use the software HP Drive Key Boot Utility
1. Download and install the software HP Drive Key Boot Utility
2. Then, double click the file cp006049.exe
3. If you are using Win XP, double click the file cp006049.exe - select Install.
4. If you are using Win Vista or Seven, double click the file cp006049.exe - select extrack.
5. Then, open the program "HP Drive Key Boot Utility or hpdkbu.exe" - Next - select drive - Next - Create new or replace exiting configuration - Next - Hard drive - Next - Create new file system - Next - wait until the process is completed - Next - Finish.
6. Remove the micro SD from the USB port, then insert it again.
7. Quick format micro SD (FAT file system)
8. Restore all data, to the micro SD.

The second alternative - use software HDD Low Level Format Tool
1. Download and install HDD Low Level Format Tool
2. Select micro SD - Continue
3. Click S.M.A.R.T - click Get Smart Attributes
4. Click LOW LEVEL FORMAT - click Format this device
5. Wait until the process is complete - press OK
6. Remove the micro SD from the USB port, then insert it again.
7. Quick format micro SD (FAT file system)
8. Restore all data, to the micro SD.

If the second solution does not work, it means your micro SD damaged firmware. Based on experience, one of the causes of damage to the firmware is, the formatting process is done repeatedly, but always failed.

I hope this information helps. Thank you for using FixYa!

When i try to format my micro sd 2 gb card it say that it need to be formated but when i click for it format it say windows cound not complete the format


This is what happens: the memory chip inside the card has failed and the file system on it is corrupted; this corruption is detected by Windows that asks you to format the card to fix the file system; the format fails because the chip is defective and cannot be properly written.
This cannot be fixed, the card is dead. Junk it and buy a new one.

When i try to format my micro sd 2 gb card it say that it need to be formated but when i click for it format it say windows cound not complete the format


Hello,

You can format your micro-SD Card using a software which you can download by clicking this link. I uploaded it to my FTP site for you and it will be there for a limited time. Download that file and save it to your PC. Then unzip that ".zip" file.

If you format micro SD card connecting it to your PC via USB port, it may not ask for password. (I think your phone asks password to format.)

To format your micro-sd card:

- First plug in your micro-sd card into you PC.

- Run the downloaded "HPUSBFW_2.2.3_MASTER.exe" file.

- In the program menu window, select the device (your memory card).

- Select FAT32 as file system,

- Confirm that all the format options unchecked. (Uncheck the quick format option)

- And click the "Start" button to begin formatting.


Hope this helps you.

When i try to format my micro sd card system shows remove write protect how can i format it


Hi, i have here a photo that will show you on how to remove write protect on a micro SD.
1. You need to insert your micro SD into an adapter. 2. Unlock the micro SD through your adapter as shown below. 3. Once done, your micro SD is no longer write protected. eibraz_16.jpg

NOTE: The lock switch doesn't lock the micro SD into the adapter; The lock switch doesn't lock the data on the micro SD; The lock switch simply tells the "user" not to write. It just says "please, don't write me."
I hope this helps.

I have a sandisk 2gb micro sd card. I put it into my computer's card reader and it keeps saying it needs to be formatted. When I try to format it it says windows was unable to complete the format. I am...


> unable to complete the format.

The FORMAT process is trying to write data to the card, but that writing is NOT successful,
i.e., the memory on the card is damaged/defective, and so it "fails".

Responsibly recycle the card, and purchase a replacement memory-card.

8gb PNY micro sd card isn't recognized in my samsung Alias


If the phone failed to format the SD card, try to format it through your computer. Connect the phone through the USB port located at the back of the tower. You'll be prompted that the PC detected 2 USB drives, the phone and the SD card. You will see it by going to My Computer folder. From there, right click the Letter drive represents the SD drive then select Format. I hope this helps.

I can not format my memory card


Make sure that the device you are using specifically is to Micro SD High Capacity format and not just Micro SD. If it says just micro SD on the manuals or on the unit, it can only use a 2gb card.
