Sd memory card samsung d900

I have just recently bought a sd memory card 2gb, it comes with an adapter so I loaded the micro chip into the adapter and uploaded all the song that were there and that worked fine it left 512mb of space. I then took the card out when the labtop said it was ok to do so, I then tried to put the micro sd card into the phone and suceeded in doing so,however, it is not possible to acess any of the music that I have uploaded. Everytime I go to files, applications or the music player it won't recognise the card or you click on 'memory card' in any of the menus and it says format and if I click yes it just says error and if I no nopthing happens. can somebody help. do i need to drag files or softwear

    my micro sd 2gb prob: i went to memory card, then format and it kept on saying ERROR. ive reformatted with a pc to FAT 16 but still says ERROR when i put it i my phone. i tried changing one of the settings to mass storage, connected the phone to my pc, turned it off and on, re inserted the sim card, and everything that was suggested on help forums. after ages of doing various combinations of the above; now when i go to "memory card" and click on my phone it now says "initialising"....... i keep on clicking it but it still says initialising... how long will it take? is it actually doing anything? shall i just go and cry in the corner????

It doesn't say so anywhere in the manual (I checked through the whole thing), but on the Samsung product info page for the D900 it says it can only use memory cards up to 512MB. So basically the solution is to buy a 512MB card instead. How much does that ****? Most places don't even sell cards less than 1GB. Ebay is probably the way to go. Having said that, since the internal memory is only a tiny 64MB, 512 is still 8x bigger. They really should have included this info in the manual. Would have saved me several hours trying to get the darn thing to work with my new 2G card.

Turn off your unit and turn back on. Then try to access the memory and keep in doing until you can open it. Thats what my friend do on her phone. It works.

I bought a 2GB micro SD but it is write protected , what can i do please give me reply? Thanks


The adapter that you slide your micro SD card into to access it has a little slide lock on the side of it. 0-hxbuybsb-t555-1122-callout-s-.png
Unfortunately these adapters are notorious for going bad. There are other options you have to acess your data and that is to obtain a micro sd usb adapter. They are much more reliable. Let me know if this helps.

Memory stick too small for my printer


Sounds like you are using an incorrect memory card, or you need to get an adapter to allow your card to fit your printer. Check the printer specs to see what type of memory the printer reads, then find the adapter to change your memory card to that spec. Good luck

The memory card for my phone is really small and I don't know how to use it with my computer lol


Did it come with a SD Adapter? If it did put the little micro sd card into the adapter and then get a memory card reader that hooks up to your computer through USB, they are available at most electronics sores for uner $20.00 dollars. then you will be able to move files to and from the card for your phone.

Hope this helps.

D900 mp3 problem


Just try formatting the SD card. Hope it works fine.

Just connect the micro SD with computer.(You need SD adapter, SD card reader, and USB connection) Most computer will recognise the SD card automatically. Format the micro SD in the Window Explorer(or My Computer). Format menu can be found if you click right-button with cursor on the drive letter. After formatting, re-insert micro SD into your D900.
Some Korean experts says the problem might be caused by different file system (e.g. FAT, FAT32, etc) in each memory card. So they recommended not to share your memory card with different mobile phones as well as any electric devices (eg. MP3 player and digital camera).
