Hi Sir ==)

  • 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.

    No access to external memory


    Try formatting the momory card from the phone itself and then check, it should show the contents then. Note: Formatting the card will remove all the data from it, so back it up on your PC first.

    LG Fusic 550 Sprint - Memory Card Error with 8 GB Sandisk MicroSD


    Believe it or not, a lot of the older phones (an even the newer phones) will not support the 8GB memory card. Most of the phones on the market that support 8GB cards are the smart phones and PDA's. There are a few standard phones that support it but not many. Unfortunately, the LG 550 is not one of them. :o/

    You may need to take it back and exchange it for a smaller one.

    your memory card needs to be formatted, in settings --> memory --> format card. then you need to put the card into the computer, and put in the songs in the my_music folder
