I have a 2g SD card in my G1 I loaded some GIF images on it but they do not show up on the phone. When I put the card in the reader and try to delete them it says they are protected and cant be deleted. How do I get rid of these?

Re: downloaded files wont delete
Hi.. If the files were loaded to the SD card directlt from your computer via a card reader, try deleting them while in Safe Mode.If loaded directly to your phone, check if there is a setting on the phone or on the file properties to protect the files. If so, adjust it as needed, then attempt to delete the files again.

That means the memory card was corrupted. You need a memory card recovery to recover photos before seeing it. I recommend you use Card Data Recovery, i can recover data from corrupted or damaged memory card.
1. Do not save any new file to memory card. 2. Connect your card to computer. You should see memory card shown as a drive letter (like H:) in My Computer. 3. Download recovery software, recommended one is asoftech photo recovery (simply because i was using it and it worked) http://www.asoftech.com/apr/ 4. Install and open the photo recovery program, select your memory drive, and click 'Start' button to start scanning process which will find your deleted photos.
No problem at all. As long as the phone recognizes the memory card, you can transfer the pics from it. What you do is - connect the phone to the PC as a Mass Storage Device through a data cable using the USB port. It will appear in My Computer as an additional drive which can be used as any other drive in the HDD. Copy, paste, delete, whatever.
However, remember that after the file transfer you must first stop using the card from an icon in the system tray and only when it tell you that it is safe to remove the card, then only detach it from the PC. Else there are chances of you card getting damaged.
On some SD cards there is a program you can run. This will allow the PC to see the SD card files. The autorun.exe file may have been that file or it pointed to another directory. Typically you only need a smart card reader to see the files. if the PC can not access any of the data as stated. Plus a virus.... the data may well be corrupted.
However if corruption by a virus has occurred this utility may allow you to recover those images. http://www.z-a-recovery.com/download.htm Supposed to be free.
Please be careful if you use this file. Scan it for viri just like you did with the SD Micro card. I have not used this program but welcome any reports of success. Who knows, it may very well help others and myself in the future.
most mini sd cards come with a full-sized sd card adapter that the mini slips into. You can then slip that in your computer if you have an sd slot or sd reader. You can also buy very inexpensively, a usb port mini sd reader that you can plug directly into your usb port on your computer. Then after you'v dragged and dropped the files, you can put the mini sd back in your phone.
Hi. Well the problem is that your songs probably aren't recognized as mp3 files. I have a SanDisk micro SD and I downloaded a CD onto on a program such as RealPlayer or Windows Media Player first. Secondly, I dragged the files from there onto my SD. Try this but if this doesn't work then take out your micro SD and format it to your phone. This will end up erasing all that you have on there and possibly require you to do it many times just as I had to do, t eventually mine did work perfectly. I hope this works.
