Re: format of sd card fails on phone

Look into the opening where the sd card goes. Might have been clogged with lint etc and the card is not making good contact. Blow the lint out CAREFULLY and try again. Or take your phone by the Verizon store and ask then to take a look at the contacts for you. That is probably the problem.

My micro SD memory card 1gb can not read in my cellphone what should i do?


It might be broken. TO check, insert it into another phone that requires micro sd card. OR insert it into a micro sd adapter, then put it in a SD card reader, then connect it to your computer and see if it can be read. If your computer can read it, format it then try it on your phone again (All files will be deleted when you format it). If all devices can't read it, then that is the end of it.

SD error SD card loading

Try inserting it to another device. If the phone can read the SD card, then there's no problem with SD card. There may be a problem with the card reader on the Samsung phone. You may also try to restart the samsung phone. Also, you can try to format the SD card on another cellphone (go to the memory card > option/menu > format or repair) or on a computer that has memory card reader.

Hi, my g1 has problem to read the sd card, when i try to use the camera, the phone says it does´nt have, and windows XP do recognize the phone

Need a little clarity on what your saying XP does recognize the SD card when you mount the phone to the computer, or it doesn't?

Well here is what you can try. and just remember ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS do this before removing your SD card from your phone.

Settings>SD card & phone storage>Unmount SD card

Now if your phone has "Unmount SD card" blacked out then don't worry about just go ahead and remove the SD card.

Take the card and put it in a card reader and put it in your computer. Go to: Start>My computer> (and the drive corresponding to the SD card.) and then try to open it. If a window comes up saying something like drive E: is not formatted, Format now? and then Ok or cancel well if this comes up it could be one of three reasons; the SD card is not properly formatted, SD card is damaged, or the SD card reader is not working properly. So before trying to format the SD card try another card reader or try it on a different computer. If that doesn't work try to format the SD card. If formatting the SD card doesn't work, you may need to buy another one. If you do decide to get another one check they have good prices for the SD cards however if you prefer local buying best place to go (that I've found) is Radio Shack. They always have sales on the MicroSD cards. One other thing. For some reason. SanDisk Micro Sd cards seem to work the best for the G1. The transend cards are utter **** and worthless. Avoid buying them anytime your in the market for a new SD card or USB flash drive.

Got a new memory for my phone it is a nokia 6300 and the memory card is a 4gb sd micro card and it keeps saying card not formatted wot can i do to format it i have tried on the computer but it is still...

Most likely the phone that doesn't read it and the SD card reader can read "SD" cards but not the "SDHC" that a 4G card will be. All SD cards 4G and above are SDHC, and a plain SD card reader will not read this card.
Buy an SDHC reader, and get a smaller (up to 2G) card to use on the older phone that can't read the 4G one. Hope this helps.

Problems with formating samsung e250 micro sd card

Did you try to format the card in the device thru Windows Media Player, or Rhapsody? If so, try formatting it thru My Computer instead. My Computer>Device Name>Right Click and select format. It is most likely NOT a virus if you have only put music on the device. It is most likely a corrupt file, or a database error. Best of Luck.
