Plug your memory card to another PC and determine whether your memory card is detected. If is not detected most probably the memory card had malfuction. Replaced with a new one.

How to Format A Memory Card Using A Computer


If you are having problems where your camera or other device will not format or recognise your memory card, this is often because the card has become corrupted or the device is an older type and does not recognise the file system of the card.

You should always format your card with your camera or device (not your computer) every time you need to do this. This prevents the possibility of data errors and corruption.

However, if your device is refusing to format or will not recognise the card you can often resolve this by getting your computer to format it for you.

This often helps the camera or device recognise the card and make it functional again. If a format on your PC fails and the card is still not recognised then the card is either faulty or in the case of a camera exceeds your cameras max capability. In this case you will have to use a new card or one with a lower memory capacity.

If you have a card reader on your PC this is the easiest way to access the card with the computer. If not, a multi card reader is a cheap and useful device to have.

Be aware that formatting the card erases all information and or photos stored on it.

To format the card with your PC do the following:

1) Insert the card into the card reader.

2) Go to 'Start' - 'My Computer' and then find the card icon which will show as 'SD Card Drive' or 'Compact Flash Drive' or whatever card type you are using.

3) Right click on the relevant card icon. you will be presented with a list of options. Go down to Format and select this option.Now select a File system type.

PLEASE NOTE: Select FAT32 for 4GB or higher capacities. FAT for 2GB or lower capacities

4) Click start to begin the format process.

5) When the process is complete, take the memory card out and insert it into your device. If the procedure was successful the device should recognise it and it should work.

Note: Old cameras
Many previous old cameras and portable devices do not work if the card is formatted as FAT32 or NTFS file system. One of the following errors may occur if your device does not support FAT32 or NTFS:
- Error message asking to re-format the flash card.
- Error message that the flash card is not formatted.

To resolve the above error, backup your data and reformat your memory card in FAT file system

Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ5 does not recognise my memory card


1. Go into the menu and find "reset"...follow the on-screen instructions. 2. With no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format"...follow the instructions.. 3. After downloading any pictures from the card, insert it into the camera and do the "format" thing again. everything should work now. Remember, never use the computer to format or erase your card...always use the camera. Also, when removing the card from the computer, always use "safely remove hardware" icon at the bottom right of your computer screen.

Transcend T.Sonic 610 Formatting Problem


Hello Sir

#1
Insert your ( memory card , flash disk , cellphone , .... ) into your computer.
#2
Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives.
#3
Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive.
#4
In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'.
#5
Leave all the options as they are and click on 'Start'. This is a non-reversible process so make sure this is what you truly wanted to do in the first place.
#6
Once the process is completed, take the memory card out and insert it into your Digital Camera or any other device. Try to browse to it to make sure it works fine now.

External Memory Card Not Recognised


It sounds like your phone's card reader is broken or has debris inside.
To clear debris, use a blast of air to the socket to clean it.
If your card reader is shot, you need to replace the controller.  If the phone is under warranty, get it replaced.

External memory - sd card recognition on pc??


if it doesn't even appear on windows explorer either the sd card, usb link or iriver is defective. if all else fails try getting a memory card reader. this allows you to store files on the card through the computer and still be able to insert the card as external storage on the iriver x20. the only trouble with that is that its hard to get the card in and out of the iriver
