Memorycard not formatted


You plug it in a card reader, you plug the reader in an USB socket if it's a removable type and wait for it to be detected - an Safely remove icon will appear in the notification area, you open Computer and right click on the card - it will be listed as an Removable Media, you select format and select FAT32 and click Start.
Click the Safely remove icon when the format process has ended and take it out.
If the format process fails the memory chip inside the card has died and the card is dead, junk it and get a new one.

Writed protected


This seems to be the problem of most of us these days and some of our readers who wanted to know the methods how they can remove the Write Protected error from their USB drives like Pen Drives and memory cards.


What is Write Protected error and why it happens?
In the Write Protected error, we can’t write or copy any data in our flash drives and even can’t format the drive.
There are many reasons that cause this problem, let’s see solutions of them.
Solutions:
• First of all try to locate a small switch (if any, that you may have not noticed) at some place on the drive or memory card reader. This is the prime reason for this error. If there is one, switch it to the other side to turn the protection off.
• Yes I know this problem is also occurring these days without this switch but not to worry. Just download this helpful software form here

http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/Hard-Disk-Utils/HDD-Low-Level-Format-Tool.shtml

and run it to execute a “low-level format” on the drive. This software is quite handy and may take few attempts to actually remove the error.
• The problem can also be caused by some virus activity so just get it scanned by some updated good anti virus which may solve your problem.
• BUT if none of the methods listed above solves your problem then your pen drive might have gone corrupted, so just get it replaced.
Hope any of the methods listed above solves your problem.
Update 1:
After the low level format, you may need to “Partition the drive“. Dont worry, partitioning a pen drive means allocating it its File System and Cluster Size that was lost after the Low Level Format.
For that:
  1. Run diskmgmt.msc in Run.
  2. In the disk management window, select the pen drive, right click on it and click on Format.
  3. Now choose the File System and Allocation Unit Size and do not check the boxes below.


Click OK and the drive will be reusable after this.
Update 2 (Better Solution):
Follow the steps in this post and just put the value 0 (zero) in step 5.
This will surely solve your problem now.

My micro sd is now showing as not formatted. does this mean that i have lost all the data which was on it previously????


This error can occur because of some bad sectors present in the card or data corruption. So, do not format the card straight away, just try out following: First test the card in any other phone or pc if it shows up correctly, if it does, then card is OK, then connect the card to the pc and in its properties go to tools> check now, this will check for the errors in the card, choose all the options and wait it to finish (option probably unavailable in XP, but in Vista). Now insert the card back and see if it works. If it works, you won't lose your data, otherwise the problem is with the card and you must look for a replacement or something.

Why can't I put a 7gb video on my 16gb Cruzer


I think I know what your problem may be. Check to see how the drive is formatted. Drives formatted with FAT32 cannot transfer files 4GB or larger. Try reformatting the drive to NTFS.

1. Open My Computer
2. Right click on the drive
3. Select Format
4. Under “File System” change it from FAT32 to NTFS
5. Check quick format
6. Click start

I have not tried this yet but if that does not work try this:

1. Right click on My Computer and select Manage
2. Click on Storage
3. Click on Disk Management
4. In the right pane right click on the drive letter assigned to the San Cruz
5. Select format and choose NTFS

I hope this helps. Good luck!
