Mass Storage Device Defect

I had a 2GB flash memory "pqi" brand. I was at my friend's and i transfered some data...and everything went OK. After a while I noticed that the orange light in the flash was off! I'm sure it wasn't after I finished transfering! I replugged it tp find an error message telling that Windows didn't recognize the flash memory.

I came home and plugged it into my PC (XP SP2)...what happened is that the flash logo appeared next to the clock and the disk icon appeared in 'my computer' but a message appears when i double click the disk icon telling me to insert a disk into the disk which is supposed to be the flash!
To save your time, i've tried deleting USB hubs and controllers and disabling USB 2.0 but in vain.


Thanx in advance!

How do you get music to save on a new 4gb memory card on a nokia E5 instead of saving in phone memory


Transfer music from a computer
You can use the following methods to transfer music:

• To install Nokia Ovi Player to manage and organize your music files, download
the PC software from www.ovi.com, and follow the instructions.

• To view your device on a computer as a mass memory device where you can
transfer any data files, make the connection with a compatible USB data cable
or Bluetooth connectivity. If you are using a USB data cable, select Mass
storage as the USB connection mode. A compatible memory card must be
inserted in the device.

• To synchronize music with Windows Media Player, connect a compatible USB
data cable, and select PC Suite as the USB connection mode. A compatible
memory card must be inserted in the device.

To change the default USB connection mode, select Menu > Ctrl. panel >
Connectivity > USB and USB connection mode.


I hope this information will be helpful. Thank you for using FixYa!

Cannot put a memory on my n95 8gb china phone???


N95 8GB has only mass storage memory. It does not have a slot for micro SD memory cards. Best method of data transfer is to use the USB to Mini-USB cable (should have come packaged with handset) and choose on the handset Mass Storage mode on connection for easiest and quickest data transfer.

Computer not recognizing 2G PNY Micro Sd


No problem at all. As long as the phone recognizes the memory card, you can transfer the pics from it. What you do is - connect the phone to the PC as a Mass Storage Device through a data cable using the USB port. It will appear in My Computer as an additional drive which can be used as any other drive in the HDD. Copy, paste, delete, whatever. However, remember that after the file transfer you must first stop using the card from an icon in the system tray and only when it tell you that it is safe to remove the card, then only detach it from the PC. Else there are chances of you card getting damaged.

Same here, can't install any game or transfer data to my LG KC910


To install games, I would recommend using the Mass Storage functionality. Drop the java game inside the games and applications folder and install directly from the handset.

We hope this helps!
