That what happens when you format. BUT... you may be in luck, there are a few free recovery programs that should be able to recover your files.

I don't have a computer is there any other way to format sandisk 16gb SD card for my moto e?


Odd how the few who tried to answer ignored this part of the question, "I don't have a computer". Or the fact the person specified the item in question is a micro SD card for a phone, but people kept answering as if it were a flash drive, or a computer was related. Open your eyes people. Sheesh!!!

As with most phones with SD card readers they will have their own method of mounting/formatting a card for use in the phone. DO NOT use the computer to format the card prior to using it in a phone.

Insert the card into the phone and open settings. Find memory card options. Scroll down to mount card option. Select that to mount the card. Another option should be available or should appear after the card is mounted. Format the card using this method to be used on the Moto E.

Same thing applies to camera's... they will have their OWN format /mounting method and you shouldn't use a PC version format. As the device will have some format or parameter is requires in order for the card to be used in that device. Only use a PC format if the product specifies to use a PC to format.

How do i get muve music to work on a sd card thats not from cricket?


I don't use move music so I just put a new one in. Since my SD card wasn't dead all the time, I was able to copy it off to my computer.

After inserting the new card, formatted it, and all I restored were my pics. That's all I needed.

Two other options you can try:

In my Nokia 5130c-2 mobile I've a 8GB Micro SD memory card. When I try to enter into Memory Card it tells Unknown File Format in Memory Card. Format Memory Card Yes/No? Every thing was going fine...


Put the SD card in a stand alone card reader, and copy the data off it to your computer. Next, format the SD card, and put it back in your phone.

Hi, my g1 has problem to read the sd card, when i try to use the camera, the phone says it does´nt have, and windows XP do recognize the phone


Need a little clarity on what your saying XP does recognize the SD card when you mount the phone to the computer, or it doesn't?

Well here is what you can try. and just remember ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS do this before removing your SD card from your phone.

Settings>SD card & phone storage>Unmount SD card

Now if your phone has "Unmount SD card" blacked out then don't worry about just go ahead and remove the SD card.

Take the card and put it in a card reader and put it in your computer. Go to: Start>My computer> (and the drive corresponding to the SD card.) and then try to open it. If a window comes up saying something like drive E: is not formatted, Format now? and then Ok or cancel well if this comes up it could be one of three reasons; the SD card is not properly formatted, SD card is damaged, or the SD card reader is not working properly. So before trying to format the SD card try another card reader or try it on a different computer. If that doesn't work try to format the SD card. If formatting the SD card doesn't work, you may need to buy another one. If you do decide to get another one check Amazon.com they have good prices for the SD cards however if you prefer local buying best place to go (that I've found) is Radio Shack. They always have sales on the MicroSD cards. One other thing. For some reason. SanDisk Micro Sd cards seem to work the best for the G1. The transend cards are utter **** and worthless. Avoid buying them anytime your in the market for a new SD card or USB flash drive.

2GB Micro SD needs format code that I never gave it


Hello,

You can format your micro-SD Card using a software which you can download by clicking this link. I uploaded it to my FTP site for you and it will be there for a limited time. Download that file and save it to your PC. Then unzip that ".zip" file.

If you format micro SD card connecting it to your PC via USB port, it may not ask for password. (I think your phone asks password to format.)

To format your micro-sd card:

- First plug in your micro-sd card into you PC.

- Run the downloaded "HPUSBFW_2.2.3_MASTER.exe" file.

- In the program menu window, select the device (your memory card).

- Select FAT32 as file system,

- Confirm that all the format options unchecked. (Uncheck the quick format option)

- And click the "Start" button to begin formatting.


Hope this helps you.
