Philips PSA232 SD Card Problem

I have a Philips PSA232 512MB with a Mini SD expansion slot. Whenever I plug in a Mini SD card, it displays the message "SD card problem." When I hook it up to my computer and try to repair it with the included Philips software it says it cannot read the device.

I have two different cards: a 4gb and a 1gb micro SD that I plug into a Mini SD adapter card. Could this be the problem? Do I need to use an actual Mini SD card (with no adapter).

It works fine without the Micro SD card plugged in.

Thanks for the help

I'm not sure about the Memory Format Error, but you are going to need the software to not only recharge the player, but put music on it as well. To turn it on you have to hold down the play button until you see a little "Philips" logo pop up on it. I looked into downloading the upgrade to see if it could recharge that way, but it seems to be only what it says it is; an upgrade. I suggest you ask your husband's friend for the software disk.

SOURCE: Not working.

I have no charge in my philips hdd82 player. Usually I just plug it into my computer via usb and a screen shows up on the player showing its connected and it charges. Usually it comes up as an MTP device on the computer so I can add mp3s as well. Now for no reason at all, when I plug it in, it doesn't charge and the computer doesn't recognize it. The screen shows an outlet when I plug it in so I know the cord works. It just won't let me do anything. When I press the on button with the cord unplugged, I can't do anything either b/c no charge. HELP. plz.

You are missing a critical update from Microsoft that will allow the computer to recognize this as an MTP device rather than an MSD device - this is a new problem that did not exist before.

Try a firmware upgrade, but it may not be successful since the repair was unsuccesssful.

Otherwise, get all the most recent Windows Updates from www.microsoft.com.

If none of the above work, write me back.

Make sure you back up all songs on the GoGear before attempting this solution.

1) Back up all files on the GoGear
2) Open up Philips Device Manager (Start --> All Programs --> Philips)
3) Click on the Repair Tab, and look for a msg that says connect the player while holding the volume + button
4) Disconnect the GoGear from the computer and turn the GoGear off - hold in the volume + button and continue to hold it as you reconnect the GoGear to the computer; after holding the volume + button for up to 20 or 30 seconds, a window will open up saying that your device is being repaired (now you can let go of the volume + button); after the repair is successfully complete, your GoGear will be good as new

Now you can do the firmware upgrade that will prevent this problem from occuring in the future. Open up Philips Device Manager and click the Update tab. This problem was caused because most GoGear's were designed for Windows XP with Media Player 10 (which is no longer the latest standard).

What do i buy so i can attach my digi power dp-fcr20/ mini sd/ms duo card reader/writter so i can attach my mini sd to it and sorry if hard to understand


If the card-reader states it's for a mini-sd card, then you should just be able to insert the mini-sd card into one of the slots. However, some card readers double-up on slots by making it so more than one card-type can be inserted into the same slot. See if the mini-sd card can be put into one of the slots successfully. Tip: Read your manual before doing so, so you don't get card stuck in wrong slot.

    My mini sd card is in raw format and my computer can't read it - how do i change it back to fat file system ?


    1. Place the mini-SD card within the mini-to-SD card adapter. Make sure the tab on the mini-SD is facing the upper side of the adapter. Slide it in slowly, being careful not to damage the pins.
    2. Slide the adapter in an SD slot on your computer. If you do not have an SD slot, place the adapter in a USB card reader, and plug that into a USB slot on your computer. Give the computer time to read the card.
    3. Open "My Computer" (usually located in your start menu) and navigate to your mini-SD card. It will usually be recognized as a drive such as "E:" or "H:."
    4. Right-click on the drive and select the "Format" option. A menu window will open.
    5. Make sure that the drive size is set correctly, and that it is set to the file system you wish to use (usually FAT32 on an SD card). If you don't know what file system you should use, just leave it at the default setting.
    6. Enter a volume label, which is the name for the drive, then press start. This process should only take a few minutes.
    WARNING
    • Do not use the "Quick Format" option unless you have just recently formatted the mini-SD card. "Quick Format" doesn't completely erase all data and is not effective unless used after a full format.
    • When you format your mini-SD card, all of the data on it will be erased. Make sure to back up your files on the card before formatting

    SD card does not seem to fit in the SD card slot


    Is the SD card a mini type or a standard SD card?
    The standard SD card is 24mm wide X 32mm long.
    If it is a mini SD card you need to purchase a mini SD to standard SD adapter, then you will be able to insert it in your Compaq.

    I have a T-Mobile G1 with a micro sd card; trying to sync??


    most mini sd cards come with a full-sized sd card adapter that the mini slips into. You can then slip that in your computer if you have an sd slot or sd reader.
    You can also buy very inexpensively, a usb port mini sd reader that you can plug directly into your usb port on your computer. Then after you'v dragged and dropped the files, you can put the mini sd back in your phone.

    VX8300 - inserting the extra memory card


    On the right side of the phone there should be a MINI SD slot (it has a cover that says MINI sd on it .. open that up)

    The smallest card in your pack is the card that goes into the phone... it goes in "upside down" with the copper teeth facing UP
    Trying to put it in the other way will make it go in all crooked

    Expansion card doesn't stay in.


    Problems inserting expansion cards, or keeping them in your device, may have a simple solution. Try these first: * Make sure the expansion card is facing the correct way. See the handbook for your device for illustrations. * Expansion cards do not fit into the slot if not oriented properly. If a MultiMediaCard (MMC) slides all the way through, it does not operate correctly. Make sure to fit cards carefully in the slot. * The mechanism of the expansion slot is called "push-push." Much like a glass cabinet door, you push to insert the card, and then push it in again to get the mechanism to release. Expansion cards do not need to be forced out of the expansion slot. * Though most expansion cards are notched at the top for removal with a fingernail or other such object, removing the card this away may damage the mechanism. Use an object only when a push fails to release the card. Please be aware that you could damage your handheld if you remove a card improperly, or insert objects other than expansion cards into the slot. * Expansion slots damaged by forced removal of the card do not release the card when pushed, and could refuse to ?lock? the card in the slot. Expansion slot damage can only be repaired by having the entire handheld serviced. * Some expansion cards labeled as SD or MMC do not actually conform to the SD or MMC specification.
