Memory card micro sd cannot format

My memory card micro sd cannot been formatted in my phone and computer.when I delete all file like music and photo,i turn off and turn on my phone back,all the file still exist.what the problem with my memory card?

My micro sd card is not being formatted by my phone nor my computer. Ive been to disk manager and it recognizes the disk drive but says that the card is unreadable. What should i do to fix this or is there somthing wrong with my micro sd card? when i put my memory card in my phone it will format it but when i put it in the adapter into the computer to put files on it it tells me to reformat it. When i try to do this it gives me an error. I have tried FAT, FAT 32and FSTS and none of them work. My memory card is brand new and worked the first time i tried to use it but wont work anymore. If it does work and I put the files on my card when i put it back into my phone it cant read them and says they are in the wrong format

  • 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.

    W490 wont read memory card


    Hi, sykko_one, I have the exact same phone and was experiencing the same problems. After about a year of using my phone and storing music, pictures, videos, etc. on my phone it would suddenly stop working. Sometimes it would work, and sometimes I wouldn't be able to save or read any data on the memory card. What I did to fix it was completely remove the memory card from the phone and used a micro sd Tinpec card reader, picture here. You want the one that supports micro sd. You can find them on ebay or amazon. Then connect your micro sd card to your pc with the adapter and right-click the removable drive (might be drive e: or f:) and choose format. Leave the default options and format the disk. Make sure you've selected the right disk. To verify this you can open the drive and look at the contents, it should have a folder called "moble." Go ahead and format the drive. Then use chkdsk.exe from the command line to check the disk for errors. Syntax will look like "chkdsk f: /f" or "chkdsk e: /f" (depending on the drive letter assigned to your sd card reader.)

    If the format and chkdsk do not work. try just deleting all the information from the card and copying some pictures and music files to it. If these copy successfully then I would assume the problem is with the firmware on your phone. Take the phone to a t-Mobile store and see if they can't re-load the firmware. And don't worry about deleting any data from your sd card, it will not affect the phone in any way, it will just delete whatever pictures music files you have stored on the card. So be sure to back those up first before you do anything. Hope this helps. -Rogueelite

    Doesn't show mp3 files on micro sd card


    You have to drag and drop only the MP3 files into the music folder. If you have them organized and in folder by artist, drag only the MP3s into the card's Music folder.

    Problem reading micro sd card on lg kg290


    well...all you should know about the micro SD card is that you should format it, when it's inserted in the computer's card reading/writing unit... once (the first format) and don't put any file in it...insert it in the phone, and format it again (formatting is rewquiring FAT 16, or FAT file system in both formatting processes) after that, reinsert it in the computer's card reader/writer and find a way to defrag it...after that do a check with a disk checking tool, or program...and after all is ok...you can put any file type on, insert it in the phone, and restart the phone...if this doesn't work...the card is either bad, or the phone does not support it's memory size...

    Memory card micro sd cannot format


    Definitely your Micro SD Card has a problem. might be ita a virus problem.

    Try to format it by your Computer not by your Phone. If you have a AntiVirus scan your Card and then try to format it.

    if you are not successful in one chance Don't afraid at all, try it three or four times by removing and then inserting the Card again in the Computer........

    I'm having trouble with my 2GB micro SD Card


    You have to format your micro SD memory card with your phone first before you can download files to it. With the micro SD memory card in your phone.
    1)go to menu 2) go to settings & tools 3)go to memory 4)select card memory 5)***SELECT OPTIONS*** ---this will ask you if you want to format your card select YES, if there is a phone password it would be your last 4 digits of your number.

    Now eject the memory card from you phone. Now when you put the memory card to your computer you should see the sub menus...my pics..my videos...my music...my sounds. Now all you have to do is just click and drag your music and photos to these folders.

    Then when you add the memory card to your phone it will see all the music, photos, etc...
