Here are a few possibilities to check: If you previously accessed, mounted or formatted the memory card while in root (Linux) or administrator (Windows), and are now trying to mount the card in some regular user account, you may not have sufficient "privileges" to mount the memory card.

Also, the format itself is VERY important with memory cards. For example, if you previously formatted the card in windows, and used a format unsuitable to the card (or the slot/reader) this will cause an i/o error report. Most memory cards below 512mb need to use FAT12 format (old DOS format). Most cards above 512mb work best with FAT16 format, but SOME can use FAT32. Some new, rare mobile phones can use NTFS media, but most card readers cannot use that format, and many cards will be unreadable, possibly even permanently damaged if you try to format them as NTFS or eclectic/now useless Mac HFS or HFS plus.

So check your phone specs, the computer's card reader specs, and the memory card specs, to make sure you have not created this type of problem. If so, mounting the card in Linux (as root) will usually allow you to identify the format if it is unconventional, and utilities there will let you repair it.

I have a PNY usb 2.0 combo. The usb ports work fine and read external drives etc. The SD readers quit working. The SD cards read fine on the internal mounted reader. My PC recognizes the drives, and t

I bought a deer cam (trail camera) at Walmart and a PNY card with PNY Multi-Slot USB & Flash Card Reader P-UBSDRDR21K-RF. I can't make them all work for me. PNY card reader has no instructions on the package neither on their website and their support is a joke. When I plug in this multi-slot card reader into my PC (I tried two different PCs) something isn't right. I get no results, just empty folders. The card is new and has data on it. Both products come from PNY, both were purchased at Walmart and both are going back to Walmart for a full refund and I will never buy a PNY product ever again.

Where do I insert my microSD memory card or does my computer have a slot for it?

Here are the ways for you to insert your microSD to your computer

1. Use "memory card reader" (this is probably the best way)
find the slot that says "micro sd" that's where youre going to insert the microSD

2. Use the internal memory card reader of your pc ( if your computer has it)
it is located in front of your desktop. The find the slot that says "micro sd" and insert it.

How can I transfer applications from phone memory to sd card in sony x10 mini ? My phone memory is full

Without knowing the Make and Model of your phone and it's manufacterure/carrier; I can only offer a General Answer that will work with almost all phones and all computers.

Most electronic and mobile phone stores carry a product which allows you to place your tiny, telephone memory card, into a larger, SD card, which will fit into your card reader slot, once you have transferred your data, remember to delete (Format) the memory card by right clicking it in Computer or My Computer, then Select (Format)

**WARNING: Be ABSOLUTELY CERTAIN YOUR DATA HAS TRANSFERRED as Formatting a memory card will Delete all data on the card.

You failed to include your Computer Make/Model and/or whether you have a Memory Card Reader, built in. Most People have one, especially on most laptops, but don't know it. The Card Slot would be on the front edge, where the keyboard faces tour belly when using it on your lap, or on the left or right side. The slot you are looking for may be labeled SD, MMC, MS, MS-Pro, etc..

Once the cellphone card, is 'piggy-backed' into the larger SD card, it will function the same as any other memory card, like your camera card, for instance.

Many of the more popular cell phone stores and kiosks, may carry a kit, containing a cord and software which goes from your phone to a USB port on your computer, to move the data from your phone to your computer.

If your computer does not have a built in Memory Card Reader, you can, very inexpensively, purchse a Multi Memory Card Reader which you can use with all memory cards.

I was listening music on my mobile,after a hour ,battery becomes empty,then i restart my phone (after charging) the meory card becomes corrupted

This is true that if the power unexpectedly turns off - this causes data writing errors on your memory card (but the card itself isn't damaged).
To solve this some digital cameras, phones or other devices offer automatic data repair process. If there is no such automatic and manual repair in your phone/device - do the following steps:
1) Attach your device to the PC via cable (sometimes this won't work if the device doesn't give the PC users enough permissions) or alternatively take out your memory card, put it inside the USB memory card reader (see various types of memory card readers:, and plug the reader in the USB slot of your PC.
2) Go to: My Computer (or Win+E keyboard shortcut) > Right click on the drive representing the Memory Card > Properties > Tools > Check Now... > Check both boxes to fix errors.

My San Disk micro SDHC Memory Cards 8GB wont format and when put in a device it heats up. What is wrong with it?

technically, some card readers dont have any regulators to minimize the voltage to read a microSD.. some direct card reader can destroy/ damage your memory card.. try to use an all-in-one card reader, or a microSD adaptor then put it in your card reader slot..
Card reader slot in laptops made for memory cards only.. =))

How can I find the correct USB cord to download pictures? I've tried make and model but can't get USB info with same.

Well, if I were you seeing you are going to have to buy something I'd be buying a card reader. With a card reader you can either purchase on that works with the one card you use or a multi which has a number of slots for all the cards made. What you do here is connect the USB cable that comes with the reader to the computer and insert teh memory card from the camera into the reader. the computer then loos at the Memory card as if it were an external hard drive and the camera is not even hooked up. You can open the files and save them to a folder on your hard drive. Last single reader I bout was $12.00. Works great no programing to worry about either.

Where can I insert my mini sandisk memorycard into my toshiba laptop? I see no slots for it.

If you have no SD slot on your laptop, you will have to buy an external USB SD reader. They typically cost $5-$10, and are readily available online (e.g. or in almost any store with a good selection of electronics.

Not all computers have the multi card reader installed. But, if yours has it it will look like a series of slots distributed around a rectangle.

Good luck on finding it.

The memory card reader on your computer may not be able to read memory cards over certain capacities (4 GB).
To use your higher capacity memory card without locking up the computer, do one of the following:
  • If you are using the card in a camera or other device, you can attach the device to the computer using a USB or FireWire cable. When connected, most devices appear in Windows as a Removable Disk and can be used in the same way as the card reader.
  • Purchase a USB memory card reading device that plugs into any open USB port. Make sure the USB device is capable of reading SDHC. These devices are fairly inexpensive and can be used in any computer that has a USB port.
If the card reader stops working after using Safely Remove Hardware, reset the cable connections and memory card firmware.

Memory card appears in My Computer but errors occur when writing or reading
If you are having problems reading and writing data to memory cards, use the following troubleshooting tips:
  1. Try a different memory card of the same type in the same slot. If the different memory card works, the card reader is good and the original memory card should be replaced.
  2. Some cards have a read/write security switch on the card. Make sure that switch is set to Write Enabled before attempting to write data to it.
  3. Make sure that the amount of data you attempted to store has not exceeded the capacity of the card.
  4. Inspect the ends of the memory cards for dirt or material closing a hole or spoiling a metal contact. Clean the contacts with a lint-free cloth and small amounts of isopropyl alcohol. Replace the memory card if necessary.
  5. Make sure the memory card is one of the supported types: CompactFlash (1, 2, and Microdrive), Memory Stick, MultiMedia, Secure Digital, or SmartMedia memory cards.
  6. Make sure the memory card is fully inserted into the slot.
    Remove the memory card when the light is not flashing and shine a light into the empty slot. Are any small pins inside bent? Replace the memory card reader or have the computer serviced if a pin is touching another pin. Straighten slightly bent pins while the computer is off using the tip of a mechanical pencil.
  7. If errors persist replace the memory card.
