Hello,

1. Last question first :No, there is no need to format all SD cards every time.

2. Sometimes this happens. I mean sometimes there is a need to format the SD card. Because , may be you use it for other purpose with other electronic items. But if you use it for only taking pictures with your camera then there is no need to format it. When you use it with other instruments then it is better to format the card.

3. You should use one recovery programs to save your pictures. After that you format your card, use it normally as you do before.

Hello,

I've been encountering this issue. The problem may come from the card reader or the card holder. If possible, use a different card holder and of problem persists, try a different card reader or test on another computer.

Hope this helps!!

I have an 8GB micro sd card for my blackberry storm when i put it in. It says media card has inserted contains errors. to correct the errors use a disk error-checking utility on a computer. what do i need...


Hi,

The chances on any micro sd card showing errors can be either the files stored in it are corrupted or the card is simply bad already. You may try to identify the problem by performing the following steps.

1· Access micro sd card through a card reader. May it be built-in in a computer or an accessory that needs to be plugged-in to a computer.
2· Wait for a few seconds for the computer to read the micro sd card.
a· If it asked you to "open the folder to view files", do so then copy all contents in a new folder on your desktop. This is to make a backup copy of your files. Then, format the micro sd card with FAT32 format. Copy all files back to your micro sd card.
b· If it asked you to format the micro sd card, most likely all files are corrupted. Try to format the card for re-use. If not successful, your micro sd card is bad already and needs replacement.

I hope this works for you. Good Luck!

I'm unable to format my 4gb Sandisk High Capacity SD card. The response I'm getting is that the disk is write protected.


Hold the SD card so the label is upright and facing you. Locate the switch on the left side and slide it up to unlock it. If you have a Micro SD card, put it into an SD card adapter. Slide up the switch on the adapter to unlock it.

Insert the SD card into your computer. If you do not have a built-in SD slot on your computer, then connect it with a USB adapter.

Open the Computer icon on the desktop. A window will open with a list of the available drives. Locate the drive the represents the SD card. The name of the drive may differ depending on you named it, or what the default name is.

Right-click on the drive and select Format. If it asks what you would like to format it to, select "FAT32" and click Start.

It doesnt work when i insert the card with my micro memory card and asks for a disk


Hi likkle_miss_,

The Micro adapter has no memory in it. It is just an adapter to use so you can plug your Micro SD memory card into a larger (SD) slot. The SD Micro memory card needs to be inserted into the adapter.

Computer won't read memory stick


SCMG - You won't be inserting it into your modem. But if the card fits snuggly and it seems to fit right, then you're probably where you need to be.

For all of you - it may be easier to connect the camera directly to the computer to download the pictures. All cameras come with the appropriate cable to connect the camera to a USB port. All you need to do is make the connection and then put the camera into "review" mode to view the pictures and Windows should automatically see the camera and ask if you want to download the pictures off of it.
