What make and model of camera are you using ? When you formatted the card, how did you format it - FAT32 or NTFS ? There is free software you can download called SD Formatter which will format a card in a way that can be read by the camera - you could download that and give it a try.

    Sorry, it is not a model with which I am familiar - best I can suggest is SD Formatter.

How do I get my computer to recognize my 128 gig micro sd card that I formatted with my Galaxy S5?

Do not reformat the card. Use the cable to transfer the photos between the PC and the phone. if you reformat, you will lose the data.

I formatted my micro sd card on my Galaxy S5 like it told me to do, but my computer keeps saying that it needs formatted.

Different devices do not always recognize SD cards formatted by another device. To preclude losing your information, transfer information using a cable. If you reformat on your computer, you may have to reformat again to use in phone.

I bought a 4 gig SanDisk Adapter micro SD, micro SDHC. my Acer Aspire will not recognize the card, i've tried the switch both ways multiple times. how can i get my PC to recognize the card?

My reader will not read mine either. I use a usb key card reader. It used to read the regular old SD cards but the new HC card format wont work. This is due to UDF differences. You can try to reformat the card but then your camera or device may not recognize it anymore. good luck

Sandisk 4gb micro SD with adapter is "unreadable"


Certain cameras will not recognize an SD card because it is SDHC. The format was created after the camera. Camera vendors do issue firmeware updates.

Hope it helps.

Problem with reading Sandisk 4gig hc micro sd card in my computer and laptop

I guess you put the SD adapter into the card reader right out of the box? You first may have to partition/format it after unpacking it. Under WinXP I can recommend an utility "DiskPart" which you can start from the command prompt (Run... -> cmd). For further instructions (if it sounds to you to be the problem ) contact me again.

Memory card micro sd cannot format

Definitely your Micro SD Card has a problem. might be ita a virus problem.

Try to format it by your Computer not by your Phone. If you have a AntiVirus scan your Card and then try to format it.

if you are not successful in one chance Don't afraid at all, try it three or four times by removing and then inserting the Card again in the Computer........
