I had an minisd card pny.. and the adaptor broke..
any kind of storage device must be easily formated any time you want.. otherwise its useless..

but on disk drives, you dont have to abuse on formating since you can damage the internal disks... but once in a while is ok..
but memory cards and pendrives should be easily formated any and as many time you want, since its the best way to repair them

How to put some music video or mp3 on my phone j105i by the internet ??


I am not 100% familiar with that phone but by looking up the specification I am assuming that you do not have a micro SD card for it. I will provide a link to one at the bottom.
if you are incessant on not buying any thing then you can try one of two things.
most phones come with a cable that you can use to plug the phone directly into your computer. if you do not have that cable and you don't have the SD memory card. try emailing your self some music files and then download the attachments.

if you do have or you buy the SD card make sure your computer has a SD port first.

Hi anna21,

Formatting the card may fix the problem however you will loose all the data on the card. I have a solution here that can help you but you need a SD Card Reader on your computer to back up the files.

1. Put the SD Card in your Card Reader.
2. Connect it to your PC.
3. If the window pop-up like asking to open with what program select Open as File.
4. If the window does not pop-up, Go to My Computer/Computer. There should be the SD Card Memory.
5. Backup all the save file in your SD Card in other word copy the whole SD card. Save it in your computer. Make sure you remember where you put it.
6. Reformat the SD Card by Right Click and click Fromat
7. Tick Quick Format
8. After it finish formatting, Try open the SD Card. It should be empty.
9. Put back all the copied file back into SD Memory Card.
10. Plug it on your DS. Check the files. Play and Enjoy

Rate me if this helps so I can help others. Thanks for using Fixya.

Sd card format software


Start up a computer with Windows XP, Vista, or Windows 7. Insert the SD card into an external memory card reader or into the computer's built in card reader. If it the first time a SD card has been inserted into the computer, Windows will recognize the SD card and automatically install drivers to read the memory card.

Go to the computer view by clicking on the windows start menu icon in the bottom right corner of the computer. In Windows 7 and Vista click "Computer". In Windows XP click "My Computer"

Right click on the SD drive under the computer heading. A dialog box with different options for the drive will appear. Click on "Format" to bring up the formatting dialog box.

Select the type of formatting (also known as file system format). In Windows XP or Vista there are several choices including FAT, FAT 32, and NTFS. In Windows 7 there is an added choice called exFAT formatting. This is an improved FAT formatting type with improved meta data capabilities. Choose the formatting type, name if the drive if desired, check or uncheck the "quick format" option, and press the "Start" button. When the SD card format is complete Windows will provide a notification.

Good luck.

I have sd card which when I inserted in card reader it is telling it is not formated what to do


If there is data/photos on the card you need to save. Try downloading them with the card in the camera via the USB cable first. this will save your data. Then try formating the card either on the camera or your PC. Sometimes the cards get corupt and it is cheaper to replace them in the long term as this may happen again.

This could have happened by removing the card while the camera was on or by not using the card eject mode on your PC.

The full specification of your laptop is located HERE. It shows that you do not have any card (mini or SD Cards) slots.The only option left in order for you to use and access any memory card is to buy an "external" USB-type Card Reader. There are 3-in-1 and 5-in1 Card Readers that can be connected via your USB port. In these card readers, you can plug in your memory sticks or memory cards and your computer can then access it.

What memory cards are compatible


Probably most of the small memory cards(sd, mini sd, micro sd-some may need an adaptor, sometimes included with your purchase)
Maybe, CF memory card, but most manufacturers tend not to include this format. Most definitely, you must have usb memory slot.

Does not read my PNY MICRO SD card to down load my lime wire musi


You may have to format the disk. Right click my computer and click manage. Then click Disk Management and in the right hand side select the 4Gb memory (it will show up as 3. something Gb). and click format (provided there is nothing on it). Format as FAT or FAT32 and when it's done, it should show up in my computer as a disk.
