Maybe the pins in the memory card are broken or there may be dust lodged in the memory card :D

SOURCE: memory card cant be read

Are you using a card reader? If yes, you need to isolate the problem. Please follow the steps below:

1. Try connecting your memory card reader into different USB port of the computer.
2. Try using different card reader to see if there's a problem with the card or with the reader.
3. Connect it into different computer.
4. Remove and reinsert the MicroSD in the card reader and make sure that the card is properly seated.
5. If the card reader and the computer are working but still unable to detect the MicroSD, try to reformat the card.
6. If same problem persist, return it to the store and have it replaced.

Have a great day!

How can i switch a memory card from read only to open


You didn't specify the type of memory card so I'm assuming it's a Secure Digital card.

SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

My memory card is not working


Memory cards, also called memory sticks or MS cards, can create problems with a computer. Sometimes, a computer will not read the card or errors cause problems when removing files from the card to put them onto the computer.


Problems range from a virus on the memory card to inappropriate software on the computer. Fixing the problem partly depends on the cause of the problem, but making the card work is simple and takes only a few minutes.


Scan for viruses. Some viruses or worms infect MS cards.

A computer that suspects a virus might interfere with the memory card as a result.


Look for viruses or problems with the anti-virus software that won't allow the memory card to open. If a virus if found, remove the virus through the anti-virus software before opening the memory card.


Check that the computer has the appropriate software installed to read the card.

Some MS cards or memory sticks might require more updated software or specific software that is not on the computer.


If the software is installed, look for current updates and download any updates to determine if the problem is old software.


Open the control panel.


Click on "Add New Hardware" and see if it is available.

If the hardware for the memory card is not installed on the computer, this will allow installation.


Once installed, the card should read.

If the memory card is not showing up, the problem is often damage to the card, which prevents reading the card. If the card is damaged, it must be replaced.


Use an adapter.

Some memory cards are not designed for reading in a computer directly and require the appropriate adapter.


The adapter changes the data to the appropriate system for the computer to read it.


Hope this helps

My pc cant read my 2 GB SD memory card. I tried for thousand times... plz help


Hi divine_chord,

If the memory card is working perfectly in your device , then you need to check if the the memory card has a password to it, if it does then you will not be able to read it in your computer , so all you need to do , is remove the password on the memory card and then try connecting the memory card to your PC.

Sometimes different card reader can read it so it would be good to give it a try.

Hope this helps ..:)

I cant format my memory card and my cellphone cant read it to what should i do .


Get a Multimedia card reader for yourself. Plugin in the card reader in computer and insert the SD card in it. Once you see the SD Card in My computer that means your card reader is able to read the SD card that you have inserted. You can right click on the icon and click format. Do a quick format and choose file system as FAT32.
or
You can use SD Card Formatter and can follow their manual. I think that will also work for you. http://www.sdcard.org/consumers/formatter_3/

If you a using a card reader that plugs into your PC and it STILL doesn't read from the card, this means that the card itself is defective and needs to replaced. You CAN try using another card reader to see if that helps.

Hope this helps. :)

If ur card is over 2GB, the memory card reader may have a max memory size limit. if it does it is probably 2GB. Check the specs or try a smaller size card to test.
