My micro sd card won't be read by my computer anymore
I have a 4GB micro SD card for my phone and now when i put it in the adapter and in the usb port it says: Delayed Write Failed. It keeps telling me to save data elsewhere and that it could be my computer hardware or network connection. So how do i get it to be able to be read by my computer again???

Try to use a different card reader because the error pertains to a bad card reader. You might as well try to plug your card reader to a different computer. If you have no important data on your SD, you can simply reformat the card.

if theres a slot for an sd card on your computer you need a micro sd card adapter. if it doesnt have an sd card slot you need to buy a usb memory card reader (making sure it takes a micro sd card first)
both are widely available in supermarkets/electrical outlets or on ebay/amazon/play etc and are very inexpensive.
1. Purchase a micro-SD card with an adapter for a normal-sized SD card.2. Plug in the micro-SD card to the back of the phone. Make sure the power is off when you do this, of you could unintentionally harm your phone.3. Power back on, and transfer the pictures to the micro-SD card.4. Shut the phone back off and remove the card again. Place it into the adapter. If your Gateway laptop has a SD card reader: 5. Put the adapter into there.6. Transfer the pictures to you computer. Done! If your laptop doesn't have a SD card reader: 5. You'll need to purchase a second adapter that adapts the regular-sized SD card to a USB port.6. Following the manufacturer's instructions, put the SD card into the second adapter.7. Transfer the pictures to your computer. Done!
Does the PC recognize the adapter when you place onto the USB port? If not, try another USB port. It should atleast say it has detected hardware, see if it's finding and installing the drivers correctly.
If it's not the adapter, could you reformat the microsd card? Perhaps, it is corrupted? Is this SDHC or SD (what capacity). Older Blackberries do not support SDHC (I believe this is 4gb or above), perhaps this has something to do with it.
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.
THe HC chip set for SD's and micro SD's have different programming in them and are unfortunately not backwards compatable with a standard SD host port. For you laptop, I reccoment getting a USB SD chip adapter. They're only like $6-$10 depending upon the brand. For your phone, however, I reccomend you take it back to the store for a trade-in on a standard SD chip, or for a complete refund so you can buy one from a store that carries standards.
Unfortunately, we have found an incompatibility with a new
revision of our microSD and the USB adapter that accompanied the card you
purchased. We are in the process of solving the compatibility issue. We are
truly sorry for the inconvenience and would like to send a new card that is
compatible with your USB adapter. Your original card should be functional in
other adapters, phones, and cameras. The microSD card's compatibility problem
should only exist with that USB Adapter. For your inconvenience, there will be
no need to ship the original microSD card back to us so feel free to keep and
use them both. We would also like to send you two free music downloads from
Duracell Flash Memory.
If you would like to take advantage of this
offer, please let us know your full name, address, the size of the microSD, and
the name and location of the store from which you purchased your microSD. When
we receive your information we will ship your replacements parts and music
Best Regards, Duracell Flash Support Team
