SOURCE: nokia 6288 / format memory card

MMC puchased should be formatted once, because new MMC comes with file system FAT-32. and mobile phones supports FAT file system. You can copy your data from MMC to PC using MMC reader/writer first. Then format it in your mobile and then reload your data in formatted MMC at folder created during formatting. Then you may see your MMC working properly. Fix your problem and vote here to fixya for solution....

SOURCE: How to format the Nokia 3500 memory card?

hi there,

here are some instruction you can follow to format you memory card

For soft format
*#7370# or *#7780# Reset your phone to the default factory settings. Usually you will need this code when you want to reset your phone back to the same condition when you got it for the first time. When the phone ask for security code, the default one is 12345.
Warning: Before you do reset the phone, make sure that you don’t have important data. Your data on the phone memory will be lost once you reset it.

For full format

Use the three button combination. Switch off the phone. then press the three buttons (green button, * , 3) and switch on the phone. the phone will switch on and display formatting on the screen. you van then let go of the buttons and wait for the format to finish. Make sure your battery is fully charged or the charger is connected.

Note: Better to go Nokia Service Center rather trying yourself as trying those means you are taking risks.

Nokia 5230 memory card still corrupted after hard reset

It is possible that the phone has hung up becausethere are errors in the software. So to reset remove the battery and the memorycard from the phone. Using your PC , scan the memory card for any corrupt filesor media files with virus- it is possible when they are downloaded from unsafesites. If so remove or format the card. Copy only valid files to the card anddo a scan before it is replaced. Now replace the card and battery and switch onthe phone. If the phone hangs up or is slow when it is switched ON , then it ispossible that the fault is relative tothe software and will need a reinstallation. Possible hardware issue cannot beruled out. Seeking help from the authorized service /supportcentre is most ideal. Take estimate and decide.

My nokia 5230 is extremely slow, i tried factory resset....after that, it's more slower. it doesn't make any sense.

First check your memory card,, if the data inside the memory card were affected by virus,the problem might comes from mmc.So, first of all copy all the data to your Pc by draging the file not by selecting Clt+A.And format the memory card.Make backup all the important files of your phone and and for format it by dialing *#7370#.This is the first steps to get rid from this.Good luck
