    When I asked for what type of disk I meant disk TYPE not BRAND.
    Disk type is Xd SmartMedia Compact flash etc.,
    Sandisk is the brand.

    If the same disk locked in place on the same camera but does not now this can only imply the lock down mechanism has failed in the camera.
    But come back with the Card TYPE.

How to remove/load sd card stuck in Huawai M860


The SD memory card slot is spring loaded, to insert the memory card insert the card into the SD memory slot with the SD card contacts going in first and gently push it in until it locks in place. NOTE if the SD card does not slide into the slot easily then the SD memory card has been inserted back to front, turn the SD card around and insert it again.
To remove an installed SD memory card, press the SD memory card and it will pop out slightly then you can then pull out the SD memory card.

I forget my memory card password of nokia2700


Locked Memory card.
Note:- Locking of memory card is a RANDOM process.(means it gets locked on its(memory card) "OWN')
1.Whenever a card gets locked,its mainly due to the following reasons.
(I)When you insert it into a uncompatible mode.
(II) when some unsupporte files are placed.
(III)When its for specific mobile.
100% working solution for LOCKED MEMORY CARD is :-
1.Use Unlocker(its like a pendrive device with 9V battery ),and its IC is programmed in such a way that it tests every possile code.
2.The one that sets mades the memory card Unlock.
3.BUT you cant know what the CODE was.
4. Data can NEVER be retraced.

Noye :-Buy an Unlocker available @ Rs.200.But you may not get the same problem often so take it to the retailer it will costaround Rs.20 for unlocking .

HOW TO UNLOCK 2GB MICROSD MEMORY CARD?


Are you using an adapter for the memory card?
viscamtech_8.jpg
The adapter will have a lock in the indicated place. Use it to unlock.
If you are not using an adapter, you might have used some software to lock it. If you don't remember, you may have to format it first. But by formatting, you will loose everything in the memory card!

How do I insert a memory card into my Nokia 5310d? Thank you


Insert a microSD card


Use only compatible microSD cards approved by Nokia for use with this device. Nokia uses approved industry standards for memory cards, but some brands may not be fully compatible with this device. Incompatible cards may damage the card and the device and corrupt data stored on the card.

1. Remove the back cover of the phone.

2. Insert the card into the microSD card slot with the contact surface facing down, and press it until it locks into place.

MY MEMORY CARD WILL NOT LOCK INTO PLACE WHEN I PUSH IT INTO SD SLOT


  • Most likely the SD card is not being pushed in far enough to lock into place. You really need to use your fingernail to push it in past flush until you hear a clicking sound, at which point the card will lock into place.
  • Here are full instructions for insertion and removal of the SD card: Insert the memory card with the metal contacts going into the slot first and facing up at you. In other words the SD card label should be upside down when you insert it this way. You need to push the card in past flush to have the spring mechanism lock the card into place. To get the card out of the slot, push the card in past flush and then the spring mechanism will release it. You will hear a click when the card locks into place or is released from the slot.

    My camera is locking my memory card. I slide the lever on the memory card to unlocked, which is down, and when i insert it in the phone and push it down to lock it in, it pushes the 'lock' on the memory...


    I have had a similar problem with flimsy lock tabs. I solved it by placing a small amount of scotch tape over the tab - starting near the connection pads, over the tab to the back edge of the card. There's usually not a whole lot of extra room in the slot, so insert carefully and remove portions of tape as needed.

    Worst case scenario - if you never use the locking tab (I never do) you could place a small dab of super glue to hold it in place. Let it "set up" before reinserting - you don't want the tab to move an be held on the lock position.
