Can't formate a Sandisk micro sd hc

I bought a Sandisk micro sdhc 8Gb and a H'mc card reader (usable with sdhc), and when I try to read my card on my computer (an Acer with Vista), it says I need to format it. I do it and when it is almost finished, I got the message ''Windows was unable to format'', and when I give up, it tells me to check if it's well connected (it is) or if the card is locked (I haven't found any lock on my card).

Thanks if you find any clue, I'm bored to search...

My computer wont format my micro sd card


Is it an SD card or a microSD card? If it's a 4GB (or larger) card then it's neither, but instead an SDHC or a microSDHC.

If the card is an SDHC/microSDHC then your card reader may be only SD-compatible. If this is the case then you can buy an SDHC-compatible card reader and use that. Alternatively, if you want to use this card with some other device, such as a camera or a phone, format the card in that device instead of in your computer.

I bought a 4 gig SanDisk Adapter micro SD, micro SDHC. my Acer Aspire will not recognize the card, i've tried the switch both ways multiple times. how can i get my PC to recognize the card?


My reader will not read mine either. I use a usb key card reader. It used to read the regular old SD cards but the new HC card format wont work. This is due to UDF differences. You can try to reformat the card but then your camera or device may not recognize it anymore. good luck

The A402 works with MMC and SD cards. Your 4GB card is actually an SDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it is electronically incompatible. You need to use cards 2GB and smaller.

No, it's a hardware issue. Your 8GB card is an SDHC card (the HC stands for High Capacity), but the card reader in your machine is clearly only compatible with the older type SD cards. SDHC devices will accept SD cards, but devices designed solely for SD cards cannot read or format SDHC cards.

There is no firmware update for this, your only fix is to buy an external reader compatible with SDHC cards for connection via a USB socket. Most new readers are fully SDHC compliant, but check the specs for shelling out your hard-earned...

When i insert my 8 GB micro SD card it says the same thing.


Your 8GB card is considered "high capacity". You will need an SDHC USB card reader to read it.

Formatting troubles for a 8gb Sandisk Micro SDHC


Hi Tony,

Have your My Computer window open and re-insert the card into the reader. If it doesn't show immediately, then right click and choose refresh. It should show up then.

Problem with reading Sandisk 4gig hc micro sd card in my computer and laptop


I guess you put the SD adapter into the card reader right out of the box? You first may have to partition/format it after unpacking it. Under WinXP I can recommend an utility "DiskPart" which you can start from the command prompt (Run... -> cmd). For further instructions (if it sounds to you to be the problem ) contact me again.

Problem with reading Sandisk 4gig hc micro sd card in my computer and laptop


Does the micro sd card been detected by your computer? If not, you may try other card reader, or other computer. If still does not detected, you may try to go to device manager and see whether the sd card is there, if yes, then you can assign a drive letter to the sd card.

Once SD card shows as a drive letter on PC, you can download sd card recovery software to get back your files. recommended asoftech photo recovery that helped me before. download it from link below
SD Card Recovery Software

You can refer to this card recovery tutorial
Recover files from SD Card

If above does not work, you may have to format the memory card (use quick format), and then use Asoftech Data Recovery to scan again the memory card and recover your files.
