    The folks at Best Buy told me the 4GB should be fine. They gave me some things to try - without success then directed me to the GEEK SQUAD desk. I will post what they do if it helps.

I have a sandisk 2gb micro sd card. I put it into my computer's card reader and it keeps saying it needs to be formatted. When I try to format it it says windows was unable to complete the format. I am...


> unable to complete the format.

The FORMAT process is trying to write data to the card, but that writing is NOT successful,
i.e., the memory on the card is damaged/defective, and so it "fails".

Responsibly recycle the card, and purchase a replacement memory-card.

I forget my 4gb microsd memory password.how to unlock it


Hey bro, im sorry to inform you that there is no way to recover your memory card without losing your data. But if you are fine with losing your data, then try this out.
Put your microSD in a nokia E-Series phone. I'll suggest the E-65. Now, go to the memory card in the TOOLS folder and select options, and choose FORMAT MEMORY CARD. It will ask you for your confirmation, press yes if you want to, and it will format your card and remove the password. I hope this works for you. Cheers ! I've tried it out. It does not ask you to put in the old password before formatting. It worked for me !

Format external memory


Hi,

the problem can be solved.For the video not to be able to play might be due to the video file being corrupted or the memory card was not really formatted properly.

You can format the memory card again and try transferring the file into the memory card.If it does not work, try and use another device to format it.

If still it does not respond properly, then the memory card is corrupted and it needs to be replaced.

Have a nice day.

Cannot format external memory card.


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 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.

How do I configure external storage?


Had the same problem - but with older Insignia NS-DV2G. Didn't want to buy a new bigger 4GB. Salesman at Best Buy today said I just needed a Macro SC card. Sold me a 2 GB. CAme home - downloaded new tunes, loaded it up in the Card reader and synced. Computer said everything went to the card fine. Turned on the Insignia and got same error as you - "Unable to format external memory". Huh? Thought maybe the memory was too much at 2GB. Had a smaller 256 macro card on hand. Reloaded music on that and stuck that it in Insignia. Same error message. Googled the problem and found your posts. Thought I was doomed. Drove the 20 miles BACK to Best Buy (read a total of 80 miles for two round trips) and two guys couldn't figure it out. Called for a third guy to come over and he turned the dial, pushed the button and all the new songs were there! Just like that. How in the world.............

With macro card inserted:
Go to SETTINGS.
Scroll to SYSTEM
Click on INITIALIZE
Click on YES.

Poof!

At least it worked for me. Good Luck.

Unable to format external Memory


From what I understand, the player can only support SD cards up to 2GB.
