Problems with formating samsung e250 micro sd card

I am having Problems with formating samsung mobile E250 micro sd card. Whenever I try to format a card it is giving a error message. Earlier it was working fine but suddenly it has stopped working , so i tried to format the memory card but it did not worked. Can a virus in a computer can have done this when i have connected my mobile to PC. Or can mine memory card could have got damaged. I am using 1 GB Transcend micro SD card. The memory card will not format in the phone!  There is nothing wrong with the memory card it is only new but when I put this into my phone it won't reformat.

I had the same problem and I tried everything. I couldn't think of anything else to do so I just turned my phone off and back on again. When I went back to the memory card menu on my phone all the folders that I lost re-appeared. I don't know if it would work on other phones but it's worth a try!

I just got my samsung e250 today..and it's second immediately i inserted my 1gb memory card in everytime i open my memory card it always shows format..and everytime i format my sd memory...

Format the memory in the computer using all-in-one memory card card reader. But if it cannot complete the formatting or it hangs up in the computer then your sd card is broken.

Good Luck!

Be careful, if you use the USB cord to plug the phone up make sure that your not formatting the entire phone.

Did the Micro SD card come with the bigger card to plug it into making it a standard size SD card ? If so then you can plug that into a card reader if you have one go into MY Computer, and right click on the drive of the SD card click format.

Those are the only other ways of solving said problem if you can't do so on the phone itself. Also the phone may not accept a memory card of such size.

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.
