Question about Nokia 5300 Grey Cellular Phone

Memory Chip isn't recognized

Everything on my phone (including the Nokia Suite) is working and updated----except for the memory chip. I've powered on and off the phone plenty of times. I'm unable to format the chip because the phone doesn't detect it's presence. This chip can be detected and read by a PC alone, but it seems to be invisible to my phone. I've formatted it with my PC, but this has had no affect.

What can I do? (It's the 1GB Mini SD Memory chip)

My phone show memory full,but i hae nothing on my SD card how do i move information from my phone memory to my SD card.

I had a similar issue. You need to go to the settings menu and check to see if your phone is recognized the chip. If no, power off your phone, take out the chip and reinstall it. If your phone is reading your chip, there are many apps you cc an download in google play. If your chip is not recognized, check it in a another phone.

When i play radio or music player in my nokia 5220, the message show up "not enough memory" eventhough i 've deleted many data in my phone. How to resolve it?

have you checked if there are any firmware updates available for your device via Nokia Suite? if there are any, please update to the latest version offered. Failing that, you can try re-installing your current firmware thru Nokia Suite.

You should also save any photos/videos/music to your memory card, or if you don't have one, then invest in one as your device does support microSD memory cards.

to re-install, select check for updates, and it will say there are no updates, and next to the text saying there is no updates, there will be a paragraph within that paragraph in blue text will be "re-install".

I have an acer power f5 which canot accept a 1GB

Try the 1gb chip on its own. (with no other chips)
If it still does not work check your motherboard manual
Make sure that your memory is supported by your motherboard.
You will need to know the type and speed of the memory chip you have.

If the memory is a match and it still does not work it may just be stuffed. Did the memory work in another machine?

Hope this helps

How do i get the retsriction code for my nokia 5310b XpressMusic

The e-mail solution posted to me by Nokia below to unlock the media licence keys after firmware update worked and is thus (Note all your phone music will be wiped so will need to upload again from your PC):

1. Connect your phone to Nokia PC Suite in "PC Suite" mode. Launch PC Suite.
2. Use PC Suite Content Copier to back up the contents of the memory card onto the PC.
3. Disconnect the phone and format the memory card:

Menu > Gallery > (the memory card folder) > Options > Format memory card > Yes.

4. Re-connect your phone to PC Suite and restore the backed up data to the memory card.
