I'm using a Sandisk 1gig Memory Stick, but suddenly it has far less than 1gig to give. I mainly use this stick for my Sony Playstation Portable (PSP) for save files or such. Right now it has one 341.6mb...

because it requires that much space to write files to boot the games

I'm using a 1gb sandisk sd memory card to sync mp3 song on it. THe mp3 songs go on it fine and play on the computer and on the mp3 player ok. The problem is I have about 533mb of space used and have about...

You may have reached the maximum number of files allowed in the root directory of the file system. If you already have a folder on the card, try moving some of the MP3 files into that folder. If you can copy 1 new MP3 file onto the card, that is your problem. Hopefully your MP3 player supports folders!

1gig SanDisk micro card is not reconized by LG 500 mobile phone

delete that file off of the memory card and try it again.

If no go then I would try it on her hand set and back up the data to a comptuer using the usb cable on either handset ( which ever the memory card works fine on ) and then wipe the memory card transfer it to your handset and do what you need to do and you should be able to load the data from your handset on to it once its been wiped.

If you want to put the data back on you should be able to use the usb cable - assuming you got a usb cable of some description.

Otherwise if you have bluetooth you could enable bluetooth on both your handsets and transfer the data assuming you have enough storage space on the other handset.

If not let me know how you get on or what problems you come across and I will try and help further.
