Im phon not format/delete

  • Prepare your memory card for formatting. Decide whether you would like to format using your phone or your computer. If you decide to use your computer, remove the micro memory card from your phone and place it into the memory card adaptor. If you decide to use your phone's removable memory card slot, insert the memory card into the phone while the phone is off, before turning on your phone.
  • 2Navigate to the menu and select your phone options. Locate the menu that includes the technical list; you should see "Media Card" or "Memory Card" listed as an option. If your phone has a separate menu for Memory options, look within this for your memory card menu option.
  • 3Access the memory card menu and click "Options." Be sure that memory card support is enabled. Next, select "Format." This may be found listed or you may need to click on the menu within the memory card menu you have already accessed. After selecting the format you may have the option to choose between formatting the media card and/or the device memory. Select "Media card" if confirmation is required. Keep in mind you will be losing any data previously stored on your card.
  • 4Select OK when your phone asks you to confirm format. Your memory card will now be formatting to your phone and a progress bar may appear. Do not power off or navigate away from this screen. When formatting is complete, your phone will notify you and the progress bar will no longer be visible. You may need to confirm with an "OK" that your memory card has finished formatting.
  • 5For Windows users who wish to format using a computer, place the micro memory card within the adaptor and insert it into your computer's memory card slot. You can also connect to your computer using an external adaptor if your laptop doesn't feature one built in. After connecting the memory card, select "My Computer" within your Windows menu. Select your memory card, which should be listed within this folder. Right-click on the menu and select the format. Your computer settings will prompt you to accept the format and complete the process.

  • sincerely. God bless you.

    My bb 8520 says media card cannot be read. verify that the memory card is formatted. what do me?

    Hi there,

    The best thing you can try to do is connect the media card to your computer. When you see it show up in "my computer" or "computer" right click on it, and select "format". Make sure the formatting is in either FAT or FAT32. Once that is done, put it back in the phone and try again. If you cannot plug the card into the computer, then use the supplied USB cable for the phone, and plug that in to the computer. On your screen it will ask if you want to sync, enable mass storage or charge only, make sure you select enable mass storage. If you do this your card should be readable on the computer and then you can format it using the same method I described. Just note that if your blackberry gets plugged in, it will show up with 2 "storage cards". One of them is the memory that is on the phone and the other is the actual media card. Make sure it is the media card that you have selected to format.

    Connect the media card to a computer using a USB card reader to back up the contents. Chances are the media will be readable from a computer. Once you've backed up the contents, save it to your hard drive and format the media card from your blackberry. Reinsert the card into the USB reader to restore your media files.

    I bought a 4gb Sanadisk microSDHC card for my Sansa c250 and Media player is not reading the card?

    You must find the Sansa c250 menu that allows you to format the microSDHC card for use with media player.  Most microSDHC  cards are shipped unformatted.  It is a new technology and there is no standard format for microSDHC cards as they are used to store many types of data.  My cell phone uses one to store music, video,and photos, so the phone's manufacturer included a format command choice in the appropriate "phone memory" menu.  Look for the microSDHC card in a "memory" menu. Follow the prompts to format the card.  This only works on a NEW card.  If you format a used card, ALL data will be lost.  Formatting a card or a hard disk effectively prepares the memory to be written on, erasing any data previously written on it.

    The memory card is pre-formatted. If a memory card needs formatting the phone will request that you format the memory card (the menu for this will appear on the phone). You can't re-format it. Memory status
    You can check the total amount of memory for media items and the amount of memory currently in use in each media box.
    Your phone is preset to use FAT16-formatted memory cards.
    If you insert a FAT32-formatted memory card, the phone will ask you to reformat the
    memory card. If you do not, you will not be able to access the card from the phone. If a folder on a memory card has sub folders which exceed the maximum folder depth supported by your phone’s file system, you may not open or delete the maximum depth sub folders on the phone.

    Frequent erasing and writing will shorten a memory card’s lifespan.

    • Do not remove a memory card from the phone or turn off the phone while data is being accessed or transferred. This could result in loss of data and/or damage to the card or phone.
    • Do not subject memory cards to strong shocks.
    • Do not touch memory card terminals with your fingers or metal objects. If dirty, wipe the card with a soft cloth.
    • Keep memory cards away from small children or pets.
    • Do not expose memory cards in a place subject to electrostatic discharge and/or electrical noise.
