CHECK TO SEE IF THE SMALL PROTECT TAB SWITCH HAS BEEN CLOSED ON THE CARD. IT'S JUST BELOW THE TOP EDGE. IF THIS DOESN'T WORK BORROW A FRIENDS CARD AND SEE IF IT WILL CLICK INTO THE SLOT. OK? IF YOU NEED MORE HELP, REPLY TO: ARCLIGHT1217.

Ram not working


Step 1:
A memory slot is a slot in your motherboard where you place your RAM (Random Access Memory) card. In layman's terms, the RAM is the "temporary memory" that the computer utilizes whenever it is turned on. If the computer cannot detect a RAM card installed in one of your memory slots, you have to troubleshoot the problem immediately.
Ensure that the problem is with the RAM slot and not the memory card. Turn off the computer, unplug all devices connected into the ports of your computer and open the computer casing. Refer to the manual of the computer to know the specific steps to follow in opening the computer casing. Remove the memory card from the RAM slot. To do this, unlock the card using both hands. Pull the card away from the slot to remove. Inspect the RAM card for any apparent physical damages. Wipe the card with a clean cloth to remove dust. Also wipe the memory slot in your motherboard. Place the RAM card back into the memory slot. Press the card into the slot until it clicks into place. Close the computer casing, connect the cables back into their respective slots and turn on the computer. Turn on the computer and see if the memory is detected. If the computer does not boot up, the RAM card is not detected by the computer. Assuming that you have two memory cards installed in the computer and the computer boots up, check if the second memory card is detected by the computer. Click "Start," right-click "Computer" and then "Properties." Under "System," check the amount of "Installed Memory (RAM)." If the RAM is not detected, the RAM slot or the RAM card itself may be malfunctioning. Place the RAM card into another memory slot in your motherboard and see if the card is detected. If it is detected, the other memory slot is malfunctioning. Do not install any RAM card into it to avoid further damage. If it is not detected, the RAM card may be malfunctioning. Insert another RAM card into the slot. If the RAM card is detected, the slot is malfunctioning.

How can i make a motorola razr v3i accepts sd memory card 4gb


    • 1 Hold down the "End Call" button for several seconds to turn the phone off.
    • 2 Remove the battery cover. Turn the phone over and push the clamp on the backside of the unit. The cover should slide up easily; remove it and set it aside.
    • 3 Locate the memory card slot. It is located directly under the battery under a black cover.
    • 4 Pull out the black cover gently to reveal the memory card holder.
    • 5 Slide and press the memory card into place.

Im phon not format/delete


  • Prepare your memory card for formatting. Decide whether you would like to format using your phone or your computer. If you decide to use your computer, remove the micro memory card from your phone and place it into the memory card adaptor. If you decide to use your phone's removable memory card slot, insert the memory card into the phone while the phone is off, before turning on your phone.
  • 2Navigate to the menu and select your phone options. Locate the menu that includes the technical list; you should see "Media Card" or "Memory Card" listed as an option. If your phone has a separate menu for Memory options, look within this for your memory card menu option.
  • 3Access the memory card menu and click "Options." Be sure that memory card support is enabled. Next, select "Format." This may be found listed or you may need to click on the menu within the memory card menu you have already accessed. After selecting the format you may have the option to choose between formatting the media card and/or the device memory. Select "Media card" if confirmation is required. Keep in mind you will be losing any data previously stored on your card.
  • 4Select OK when your phone asks you to confirm format. Your memory card will now be formatting to your phone and a progress bar may appear. Do not power off or navigate away from this screen. When formatting is complete, your phone will notify you and the progress bar will no longer be visible. You may need to confirm with an "OK" that your memory card has finished formatting.
  • 5For Windows users who wish to format using a computer, place the micro memory card within the adaptor and insert it into your computer's memory card slot. You can also connect to your computer using an external adaptor if your laptop doesn't feature one built in. After connecting the memory card, select "My Computer" within your Windows menu. Select your memory card, which should be listed within this folder. Right-click on the menu and select the format. Your computer settings will prompt you to accept the format and complete the process.

  • sincerely. God bless you.

    Insert the card into your computer via memory card slot or card reader. Go to My Computer and right click the icon representing the card once it has been recognized. Click the Format option and make sure "Quick format" is unchecked and select FAT as the format type. This should fix your memory card however you will lose all data on the card. As the card is corrupted this isn't any more of a loss anyways.

    Memory card error


    Make sure your camera can take San Disk. It probably takes a certian card or the SD card might be upside down. Some brand and models stay this fault and the problem with the SD is that it does not accept a memory card higher than 1GB. This info isn't in the user guide. Have you tried an external usb card reader?

    Pull the card out and re-insert. the most likely problem is the card was not seated properly in the slot.

    Keep us updated.

    MY MEMORY CARD WILL NOT LOCK INTO PLACE WHEN I PUSH IT INTO SD SLOT


  • Most likely the SD card is not being pushed in far enough to lock into place. You really need to use your fingernail to push it in past flush until you hear a clicking sound, at which point the card will lock into place.
  • Here are full instructions for insertion and removal of the SD card: Insert the memory card with the metal contacts going into the slot first and facing up at you. In other words the SD card label should be upside down when you insert it this way. You need to push the card in past flush to have the spring mechanism lock the card into place. To get the card out of the slot, push the card in past flush and then the spring mechanism will release it. You will hear a click when the card locks into place or is released from the slot.

    I have an expansion slot for memory card in my player! to what configuration can i expand this??


    The slot accepts microSD cards up to 2GB in size. If you create a folder titled "MUSIC" on this card, you can place as much music on it as will fit. You cannot place videos or photos on the card. In theory this gives you unlimited capacity for music, as you can swap cards in and out. This is what I do for my audiobook library.
