My phone has been detected highly infected virus from the memory card. the virus is so huge that it cannot erase or even not detected by the anti-virus scanner. i already formatted my phone and the memory...


if the virus is really huge and you can't do a thing to eradicate it, i'll suggest that you erase everything on your cellphone and that means including the memory card, then you rewrite the features and apps on your cellphone

This blog article how to fix folder become shortcuts should help you out. Follow the step by step please. Note: do not attempt to format the drive before you try.

Repeat


the following MIGHT help:
(to clear or 'erase' skip to format -below)
1ST: Just try to 'reset' by holding down the main center button AND pushing UP on the lock/off-on button, for about 8-9 seconds,
It will then 'refresh' the database, shouldn't lose anything,
OR:
Most other problems can be fixed ultimately by the following;
REFORMAT the SansaDisk Clip by finding it in My Computer and right click then just 'format' the thing. THEN drag and drop new music into it (or books), DRAG and DROP, you apparently erase the thing with a 'FORMAT' ....BUT - it's .sys files remain and it is like new {as in empty}
This usually fixes almost anything, should even erase a virus (I'm guessing) but shouldn't hurt it.
Good Luck!

-simple 'drag and drop' from my MUSIC folder seems to work just fine for me...

SANSA Clip not recognised


DON'T USE THE WMP (windows media player) It screws with some things; too complex.

Unable to view the pictures folder


Hi, I got the solution for myself. Initially I have enabled to view the hidden folder option and even then I was not able to see the folder, then later I have disabled the options Hide Extensions for Known file types and Hide Protected Operating system files. Then I could see the folder and able to retrieve the photos. Once I have taken my photos I have formatted my MMC card and it is working normally.
