  1. Place the mini-SD card within the mini-to-SD card adapter. Make sure the tab on the mini-SD is facing the upper side of the adapter. Slide it in slowly, being careful not to damage the pins.
  2. Slide the adapter in an SD slot on your computer. If you do not have an SD slot, place the adapter in a USB card reader, and plug that into a USB slot on your computer. Give the computer time to read the card.
  3. Open "My Computer" (usually located in your start menu) and navigate to your mini-SD card. It will usually be recognized as a drive such as "E:" or "H:."
  4. Right-click on the drive and select the "Format" option. A menu window will open.
  5. Make sure that the drive size is set correctly, and that it is set to the file system you wish to use (usually FAT32 on an SD card). If you don't know what file system you should use, just leave it at the default setting.
  6. Enter a volume label, which is the name for the drive, then press start. This process should only take a few minutes.
WARNING
  • Do not use the "Quick Format" option unless you have just recently formatted the mini-SD card. "Quick Format" doesn't completely erase all data and is not effective unless used after a full format.
  • When you format your mini-SD card, all of the data on it will be erased. Make sure to back up your files on the card before formatting

Cange file system RAW in FAT


SD cards take on a multitude of formats.

For a card that needs to work on operating systems such as Windows 98, ME or XP Home Edition, it must be converted to a File Allocation Table (FAT) format.


Also, some devices, such as a GPS unit or MP3 player, may require a FAT-formatted card.


Insert the SD card into your computer's card reader.


Click Start, then "My Computer."

Right click on the drive representing your SD card and click "Format."


Choose the memory capacity that fits what the SD card's capacity is.

If the exact option isn't available, get as close as possible.


Choose "exFAT" from the "File system" option.

Click "OK" and confirm you want to format the drive.

Hope this helps.

My memory card is not opening


Your card may not be formatted -or- it is and it;s a proprietary format. If you want to format it, here is the instructions (for Windows):
Put your card into your computer (some have a slot or else use a card reader). Right click on that drive after it appears in My Computer and select Format; set the File System drop-down to NTFS (better file storage space) or FAT32 (more compatibility in older operating systems) and click Start.

The sd card is not working and saying card error


Go in the camera options and format the card. If your camera does not have this option or it can't complete the format it means that :
Your card might not be formatted with the correct File System. Move your SD Card to a computer with card reader and Format with FAT32 File System the move it to camera. If the camera gives the same error, format the SD card with the NTFS file system the try again in your camera. If the SD card still don't work try FAT Fyle System.

Micro sd card not reading songs


Yes, Brother there is one probability that your sd is formatted in fat-32 file system. For that i would like to say phone can only read FAT not FAT-32. Go to my computer, select sd drive properties and format it with FAT file system. Then load the files and you will be able to see it in your phone. If it works don't forget to vote here. For any proble contact me patel352003@gmail.com or patel352003@yahoo.co.in
