Re: my stuff

I have the same problem with my a707, but usually only after the phone has been turned off or lost power. All I do is pop the card out, then push it back in. The phone then recognizes the card and takes its sweet time reading it (2GB) before letting me go on to "My Stuff"!

Re: my stuff

Do you have a card reader in your pc that you can put the card in?  And of course the adapter to convert microsd to sd card size?  If so then just put the card in pc, right click on the icon when it appears in your "My Computer" folder, left click "format" and format the card there.  It's possible that the data on the card got corrupted somehow and maybe why the phone is having trouble reading or reformatting it.  If the card still doesn't seem to work after putting songs or pictures on it, try using the card in a compatible mp3 player or a friend's phone with a microsd card to see if the card works, if it does then the problem is probably with your phone.  I have heard about compatibility problems with some phones and certain brands of microsd cards, not sure if this is one of them.  Hope this helps.

according to this article I believe it will only go up to 2GB. That or the music files you put on there have to be in a different format. Most likely the first option though. Hope this helps, be sure to rate how i did

How to format sony ericsson 205?

If you would like to format your memory card, do the following:

The reformatting process for the memory card takes a couple of minutes to complete, but can be done from the cell phone itself.

  • Take out the memory card, and turn off the phone
  • Plug the memory card back in, turn the phone back on
  • Access Main Menu -> File Manager-> More
  • Click Memory Status -> Memory Stick -> More -> Format Memory Stick
  • Follow the instructions as the phone gives them.

The same process can be done from a computer. Simply use a card reader and got to My Computer and right click on the drive where the memory card is located. There is an option to reformat the drive. If the computer reformats the drive, then the computer will simply erase all data and reformat, but any cell phone files will not be replaced.

If you would like to reset your phone, do the following:

- Press Menu

- Press Settings

- Press Master Reset

- Press Reset All

If this helps you, please rate.

Thank you.

I have nokia n73. there is a problem in its use. whenever i use it , it gives the message of memory full and asks me to delete some data. please tell me some solution.

The phone's internal memory and memory card may be running out of space. Try to delete unnecessary files and free some memory space. Go to Menu>Tools>File Manager. Select the folder or file you want to delete and scroll left or right to switch from the phone's internal memory to the memory card.

Format the memory card and the phone's internal memory if the problem is not resolved above. But it will erase all saved data on both memory.

Memory Card Formatting Procedure
  1. Go to MENU > TOOLS > MEMORY.
  2. On the memory card menu press OPTIONS.
  3. Scroll to Format memory card.
  4. Press Select.
  5. Select Yes
  6. Once the formatting is complete, remove the memory card.
Phone Memory Formatting Procedure
  1. On your phone dial *#7370#.
  2. Press Yes then enter your phone lock code. Default code is 12345.
  3. Formatting is complete when the phone restarts. Insert the memory card and format it again.

The memory card is pre-formatted. If a memory card needs formatting the phone will request that you format the memory card (the menu for this will appear on the phone). You can't re-format it. Memory status
You can check the total amount of memory for media items and the amount of memory currently in use in each media box.
Your phone is preset to use FAT16-formatted memory cards.
If you insert a FAT32-formatted memory card, the phone will ask you to reformat the
memory card. If you do not, you will not be able to access the card from the phone. If a folder on a memory card has sub folders which exceed the maximum folder depth supported by your phone’s file system, you may not open or delete the maximum depth sub folders on the phone.

Frequent erasing and writing will shorten a memory card’s lifespan.

• Do not remove a memory card from the phone or turn off the phone while data is being accessed or transferred. This could result in loss of data and/or damage to the card or phone.
• Do not subject memory cards to strong shocks.
• Do not touch memory card terminals with your fingers or metal objects. If dirty, wipe the card with a soft cloth.
• Keep memory cards away from small children or pets.
• Do not expose memory cards in a place subject to electrostatic discharge and/or electrical noise.

Samsung t629 memord card problem. PLEASE HELP!

ok, I have managed to use my sandisk 512mb card to put on music...even though I didnt know you had to format the disk in phone first (I dont recommend because all my music is individual clips and not in my music file), however once you see that the music is on the card via "my files" I went to the music player and hit options...then hit "add music from" then hit "memory card" you must put a check mark by all the music files you want to add to the music player (or choose "all" and hit ok) This will put your chosen songs off your card into the music player and you can see the song title at the top of your player screen and use the arrows to move through your songs/clips. Choose the song and hit play.
