Are you having a problem of formatting the memory card using your phone? If the phone doesn't like it to format your memory card, then it could be the problem with the phone or with the memory card itself.

Try inserting the problem memory card into another phone and format it. If other phone does accept the format, then there's no problem with the memory card.

Now, to isolate the problem, try using another memory card and insert it to the problem phone. By these steps, you would isolate which one is causing the problem.

If you find out that the problem is the phone, bring it to the nearest Nokia Care Center and the repair would be free if it's under the warranty.

Have a great day!

Im phon not format/delete

  • Prepare your memory card for formatting. Decide whether you would like to format using your phone or your computer. If you decide to use your computer, remove the micro memory card from your phone and place it into the memory card adaptor. If you decide to use your phone's removable memory card slot, insert the memory card into the phone while the phone is off, before turning on your phone.
  • 2Navigate to the menu and select your phone options. Locate the menu that includes the technical list; you should see "Media Card" or "Memory Card" listed as an option. If your phone has a separate menu for Memory options, look within this for your memory card menu option.
  • 3Access the memory card menu and click "Options." Be sure that memory card support is enabled. Next, select "Format." This may be found listed or you may need to click on the menu within the memory card menu you have already accessed. After selecting the format you may have the option to choose between formatting the media card and/or the device memory. Select "Media card" if confirmation is required. Keep in mind you will be losing any data previously stored on your card.
  • 4Select OK when your phone asks you to confirm format. Your memory card will now be formatting to your phone and a progress bar may appear. Do not power off or navigate away from this screen. When formatting is complete, your phone will notify you and the progress bar will no longer be visible. You may need to confirm with an "OK" that your memory card has finished formatting.
  • 5For Windows users who wish to format using a computer, place the micro memory card within the adaptor and insert it into your computer's memory card slot. You can also connect to your computer using an external adaptor if your laptop doesn't feature one built in. After connecting the memory card, select "My Computer" within your Windows menu. Select your memory card, which should be listed within this folder. Right-click on the menu and select the format. Your computer settings will prompt you to accept the format and complete the process.

  • sincerely. God bless you.

    How to format my 4gb memory card for my motorola phone using my kodak easyshare camera

    You don't mention what model of Motorola phone you have, but most (if not all) that accept a memory card have a format option. I would use the phone format function rather than the camera.

    My phone wont accept my memory card

    hello sir

    1. 1 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. 2 Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives.
    3. 3 Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive.
    4. 4 In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'.
    5. 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. 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.
