Re: formatting disk

This is a prob with your PC and not the phone.. You need to associate the Drive for it proper properties..
Easiest fix is to reinstall Windows or your O/S and then do the updates...

  • Insert your memory card into your computer's reader if you have one. If not, you can purchase a multi-format USB Memory Card reader from or
  • 2 Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives.
  • 3 Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive.
  • 4 In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'.
  • 5 Leave all the options as they are and click on 'Start'. This is a non-reversible process so make sure this is what you truly wanted to do in the first place.
  • 6 Once the process is completed, take the memory card out and insert it into your Digital Camera or any other device. Try to browse to it to make sure it works fine now.

    Memory card format for lg vu 920

    Usually to format a disk, memory card; anything, you need to be plugged into a computer.
    Which requires a USB cable for your phone, or a card reader. If you don't already have a USB cable, it's usually easier to come across a card reader simply because everybody uses them. With a USB cable, most stores don't carry them and have to order, because it's specific for a phone.
    Now if you have a USB Cable or a card reader already, plug it into your computer. (With the phone, make sure the "USB Connectivity" settings are set to "Removable Disk". This way, it won't read the phone's memory, just the memory card.)
    Once the memory card is detected, right click on it, and there should be an option that says "Format". Click it. You should get a popup asking if you're sure or not. Obviously you're serious about formatting the card, so click yes. 
    There's a check box for "Quick Format". It's a sort of way of half-assed formatting; it's faster, but not as thorough. Whether or not you do that is up to you.

    How to format sony ericcsion z550i memory card

    Connect the phone to your computer using a usb cable or card reader.. If you connect the phone there will be 2 extra drives in my computer. Right click on the memory card and click on format. Also choose the FAT32 file system while formatting it is more reilable. If you want to do this from a card reader a new USB drive will be shown in my computer. Right-click and format.
