2GB Micro SD needs format code that I never gave it


You can format your micro-SD Card using a software which you can download by clicking this link. I uploaded it to my FTP site for you and it will be there for a limited time. Download that file and save it to your PC. Then unzip that ".zip" file.

If you format micro SD card connecting it to your PC via USB port, it may not ask for password. (I think your phone asks password to format.)

To format your micro-sd card:

- First plug in your micro-sd card into you PC.

- Run the downloaded "HPUSBFW_2.2.3_MASTER.exe" file.

- In the program menu window, select the device (your memory card).

- Select FAT32 as file system,

- Confirm that all the format options unchecked. (Uncheck the quick format option)

- And click the "Start" button to begin formatting.

Hope this helps you.

How do u format sandisk microsd 2gb and microsdhc 4gb disks

You can only form sd Hc if your card reader is approved for SDHC use. It should tell you that on the outside of the card reader or in the documentation of the card reader.

If your drive isn't formatting 2gb, it could be that the driver was designed prior to 2gb cards being released. You could look for a new driver or replace it with a card reader that supports SD HC use as will as a 2 gb SD drive.

Sd card format/volume problem


Its better to avoid using disk management to format to format the card.

Use this formatter to format(usually the memory cards are factory formatted in the FAT or FAT 3).


Usually its better to format the card using the phone only. 

Good Luck.

2GB SD card no recognized

sir probably your 2gb is dead or not factory formatted... just take your receipts and take that back to where you bought it... if it is formatted probably its the same problems of those who formatted their SD with windows xp... that worsen your problem cause i think you just void the warranty of your SD card... try your SD to other card readers and if something pops like "your drive is not formatted... format i now... just click no"
