Question about SanDisk Memory Media

1 Answer

Sandisk sd/transflash disk

Hi, my daughter has media files (music and pictures) on her phone memory card - and we have the correct sandisk adaptor to insert it into my printer - the Epson RX420.

Once in, Removable Disk (G:) appears but we can't see anything.

Double clicking G: in Explore brings up a dialogue box saying that "the disk in drive G: is not formatted" and "do you want to format it now?". Both "Yes" and "no" have zero effect.

I can right-click on the G: in the file list and select Properties - and this bring up a panel with four tabs - General, AutoPlay, Tools and Hardware. All seemingly sensible combinations have no effect...

There's got to be a simple answer ! Please help...

Re: sandisk sd/transflash disk

Oh dear, formatting the drive may have caused all your files to be erased. usually when formatting it, it will warn you that doing so will remove all files on the device. try putting the card into the computer to see if the files are still there. if they are, you may need to transfer them onto a new portable storage device that can be recognised/read by your printer. hope this helps :)

I put music on the sd card and once i put it back in my phone the sd card says"Media card can not be accessed due to fatal errors." What does that mean and how can that be changed?

The file system is corrupted - most likely when you have put the music in you have done that incorrectly and the file system got corrupted in the process.
Format the card to FAT32, put it in the phone, start the phone with it in, take out the card, put it in the pc see if a music file has been created and put the mp3 music files in it, safely disconnect it and test it. If it's the same then the card has died, replace it.

HTC HD2 sandisk adaptor

Okay, you have 3 pieces:
Really small piece - microSD Big piece - SD Card
Forget that black mid-sized piece, you won't be needing it. 
The very small microSD card should be inserted into the phone (in the battery area in back).
That is what you will need it for, just in the phone. But if you want to ever take it out of the phone, you slide it, face up, and it fits one way only, into the large SD card with the red and blue Sandisk label. You would do this because a computer or laptop would never have a way to read the small microSD card we put in the phone, so we put it in the larger carrier and use an SD Card to access the memory card in our computers if we need to. 
Basically for me, my microSD card is in my phone 24/7. It stores all my files documents music etc in my phone. I have the 2 larger pieces but never use them, just install it in your phone, and carefully, you need it.

How do I use the SanDisk adaptor and the SanDisk 2GB microSD


The micro card (the smaller one) can be used alone in a port that accepts (microSD ports)such as those on a Sansa c240, c250, e250 etc.
If you have a regular SD slot (larger than microSD) then you plug the micro card in the adapter and plug the whole into a regular SD slot.

Plug the card in your computer and copy paste the files. Or plug the micro card in an MP3 player that accepts it and use you music transfert software.

You only have one card (the micro SD one), which you can use in two possible slots.

Hope it helps.

Cant fit my transflash adapter to my pc

Does your PC have a SD slot for the transflash adapter? If not you'll still need a SD to USB adapter to plug the SD into. If you have a Sony it may not be an SD slot it may be a Memory Stick or Memory StickPro which is not the same.

Sandisk 1gb microsd problems

The music might not be in the correct format. Does your phone play MP3s? Another thing might be the DRM problem with the MP3s. I had this problem once and had to strip the DRM stuff out of the MP3 before my phone would recognize it.

Micro SD 2 GB just stopped working

The PIC or EEPROM inside these cards may not be working. I guess you best bet is to buy a new one try Kingston brand or go with another Sandisk.
