Hi there

  • Insert your memory card into your computer's reader if you have one. If not, you can purchase a multi-format USB Memory Card reader from or
  • 2 Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives.
  • 3 Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive.
  • 4 In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'.
  • 5 Leave all the options as they are and click on 'Start'. This is a non-reversible process so make sure this is what you truly wanted to do in the first place.
  • 6 Once the process is completed, take the memory card out and insert it into your Digital Camera or any other device. Try to browse to it to make sure it works fine now.

    You can only have music on the microSD card; no pictures and no videos. The music tracks need to be in a folder titled "MUSIC".

    Error windows was unable to complete the format

    I experienced the same problem (my USB device ). try these steps:
    1. Start, Control Panel,
    2. Performance and Maintenance,
    3. Administrative Tools,
    4. Computer Management,
    5. Disk Management,
    6. Find the USB drive (usually the last storage device before the optical drive),
    7. Click on the USB drive,
    8. Right click on it and you will see the options (New Partition or Format)
    9. Follow the instruction (I chose FAT32), but please do NOT chose Quick Format.

    Good morning, afternoon, evening or night; whatever time of day you are viewing this solution post. Thank you for choosing me to give my opinion about your situation. So what you are saying is that one month ago you bought a Coby MP828 MP4 player, but wanted to upgrade the memory, so you bought an 8GB Micro SD card. You can transfer music properly, but can't access files from the media player. Your memory device is shown but you can't create a playlist? Well Faizal, we need to first troubleshoot where the root of the problem is coming from, then find a way to solve it. I researched your device's technical specifications and have come up with some possible causes to the problem. The first possible cause could be the type of SD card you are using; the second possible cause is the type of file format you are using to save your files. I compared the Micro SD card and the Mini SD card and the differences between the two do not affect its compatability to the device, so it looks like you can use either one. You could obtain a mini SD card to see if that does the trick, but I don't think it'll make a difference. So it must be the type of file format you are using. The Coby MP828 MP4 player supports MP3, WAV, FLAC, ACC & WMA audio formats. If you are using something different than the formats shown above, that may be the reason why you can't upload your files. Another possible reason could be firmware or software. Your device doesn't offer any firmware updates, but you could try re-installing the Coby Media Manager software to see if that makes a difference. Since you wanted my opinion, I think the second possible cause (that being the file format) is why you can't make a playlist. I don't really know what else to offer you, but I hope this solution helps.

    I added a 2gb mirco SD card to my Sansa e270 6.0gb player, but the memory is still only showing 10mb of the original 6.0 gb available for use. How do I get the Sansa to recognize and use the 2 gb mirco SD...

    Hi,when you purchase a new micro SD card before use, youwill need to format the memory card so that you will be able to know the actual size of the Micro SD card by checking the details after formatting it.

    After formatting the micro SD card and checking the details, if you still do not see the accurate size which is about 1.88mb or the about, that means the micro SD card you bought needs to be replaced. Not a good one.

    Have a nice day.

    you are screwed because you would have to find a type of software to find them again and that might not even work.don't use the sd card even if it is possible of getting the stuff back because it can be overitten. i highly doubt you can get them back since sd cards are digital media.

    External memory - sd card recognition on pc??

    if it doesn't even appear on windows explorer either the sd card, usb link or iriver is defective. if all else fails try getting a memory card reader. this allows you to store files on the card through the computer and still be able to insert the card as external storage on the iriver x20. the only trouble with that is that its hard to get the card in and out of the iriver
