Hi Mr

  • 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 Amazon.com or Buy.com
  • 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.

    While taking pictures my camera all of a sudden froze and said card error, tried putting memory card on computer but it won't read it have tried using recovery programs but it freezes them please help


    If your memory card is 4GB or larger, AND if your computer is two or more years old, your computer's card reader might not be able to read the newer 4GB SDHC card. In that case, just purchase an inexpensive USB card reader from WMart, or Amazon (here's an example). Try a different card reader first to see if you can directly copy and paste the pictures from the card onto your hard drive. If the new card reader doesn't see the files, then try recovery software. Here's some freeware to try. If the software still doesn't see the card with the new card reader, you may next need to try the corrupted card procedures described at the bottom of this linked article.

    Cannot formate 4GB memory to FAT16 use for mobile phone samsung


    If you are trying to format this card through a PC don't bother, it will not work when you install it into the phone.
    If you are trying to format this card in the phone, you may find that your phone will not access high capacity type cards as few older phones do, and by older, I mean if the phone is more then 6 months old, the chances are that it will not allow access to the card.
    Some phones also have an upper limit to the size of the card they will address and most will not address any card larger then 2gig..
    Of course, you may also have a faulty card, even from new, some of the high density cards are faulty..
    If you can get access to a smaller card (like say a 1gig), try that in your phone. If it works then you will find that your phone cannot address high density cards.
    I have a camera, less then 6 months old, will address normal 2gig cards but it will not allow high density 4 gig cards which is a pain but alas, nothing you can do about it..

    Change in sdhc memory card capacity


    Go to the scandisk website and get the format tool.

    If you got this card for something besides computer,you use the devise to format card and not the computer. Ex-phone.

    Format card with phone.

    If you got this for computer,you should have gotten a flash drive.

    After reformatting my fujitsu lifebook n5010 it doesnt read it.


    Is the card reader built into the computer?
    I know there are a few card readers out there having trouble reading 2 gig memory cards if the computer or card reader was built over 5 years ago.
    If you have a data cable for your phone and software for the phone, your computer should be able to read it that way.

    Computer is not reading my Micro SD, but phone is reading..


    What size is the SD card in GBs? If it is larger than 2GB (4 or 8) do you have a SDHC card reader?
    Also try formating the card first in the phone and then using it. Using it straight out of the package, while able to be written, my have difficultly with other devices reading the data.
