My nokia n900 does not show internal 32gb memory and shows memory card corrupted.i had tried through nokia care they did flashing.even clear my device through setting but problem not sorted out.please...


hi,

I had the same problem. Just format the memory FAT32 using Windows... that is not a joke!... just try it...the 32MB memory acts as an external (card) memory thus can be formated using Windows... obviously the info on the memory will be lost unless you have a backup file...

I bought a new ps2 and a datel 32mb card and the game i put in says there is no memory card,


Try these steps. If this doesn't work you may want to take the card to Game Stop or something and have them test it to see if it's working. Hope this helps!

  1. Insert the Memory Card into the PlayStation 2 console. The port is located directly above the controller port. Note that there are two different memory card ports; there is no difference between the two. Some games, however, will attempt to auto-load from slot one so it is recommended that you keep your memory card inserted in slot one.
  2. Plug your controller into the PlayStation 2. Power up the system without a PS2 disc inserted. You will be taken to the system menu screen. Select the "Memory Card" menu to examine any data on the card. If the memory card is new there should be no data on the card, if it is used you may see old saves from the previous owner on the card. If you no longer desire to keep these saves, you may highlight them and press the "Triangle" button to delete them.
  3. Insert your PlayStation 2 game disc into the system. When the disc appears on the system menu, select it. Load the game, and play until you are prompted to either create a user profile, or to save your game. Once you have saved any data to the memory card, reset the system.
  4. Select the "Memory Card" menu and examine your memory card. You should see a new icon representing your game's save data. If this data appears on the card, you have correctly set-up your PS2 Memory Card.

    If the data does not appear on the card, you will need to format the card. If the system detects corrupt data on the card it will automatically open a prompt asking if you would like to format the memory card. Select "Yes" and the PlayStation 2 will format the card.

Memory card error


If you get a message on your camera such as "Memory Card Error" AND there are no photos that you want still on the card, the first step is to format the card through the camera menu (Note: if you have an xD card, once you re-format your card any photos cannot be recovered.). Read your camera manual to see how to format your memory card. If this does not help, try another memory card (say the small 16/32mb card that came in the box with the camera). If this card does not display a "memory card error", then the other card is at fault.


If you do have valuable photos on the card, then DO NOTHING (do NOT format the card, do NOT take any more photos). You need to undertake a photo recovery. For options on Photo Recovery, click here. Once you have recovered your photos and archived them, then reformat the memory card through the camera as outlined above.

Keep us updated (remember to rate this answer).

I have tried 3 different Sd cards in my Norcent x125 DCS-760 camera. All 3 times I received a ''card error'' message. What can I do to fix this???


Hi,

May i ask, have you formated these cards before putting them into your camera?

If not then the first step is to format your SD card through the camera menu. (Read your camera manual to see how to format your memory card). If this does not help, try another memory card (say the small 16/32mb card that came in the box with the camera). If this card does not display a "memory card error", then the other card is at fault.

Hope this helps,

PS2 Memory Card "Unformatted"


DNT FORMAT IT if you do then it will just unformat its self when you turn it back on i have the same problem if i was you i would try deleting some stuff off the memory card (turn the play station on with out a disk in and click on memory card) than delete some old data you dont want. but if that still dont work then try blowing in the memory card (it might be a bit old). after you have done all of these things and it still dont work then i would go on a website about sony play stations and unformating memory cards, and there will be a phone number ring it tell them whats happened and they will surly send you a new memory card but that would meen your old memory card would have to go in the bin :( its a plesure to help.

My PS2


Have you already tried the other slot on your ps2?
If you have a different ps2 try to insert the mem card there, if the issue persist then it might be a corrupted memory card. You can either format it or use ActionReplayMaxEvo's tool for formatting if your ps2 is still unable to recognize or read it. I bought that not for cheats but for formatting my 8mem card and made it 32mb after formatting my memory card, for some reasons its like a upgrade firmware for the mem card.

Ps2 memory card


My memory card has been doing that too. It's either your memory card has gone bad or your ps2 memory card slots is fucked up
