The best way to solve this would be to try to format it using a PC with the appropriate card reader. Then, if the format is not exactly that which the phone desires, try to reformat with the phone again.

If it fails again using the phone (which it shouldn't), you should contact the manufacturer as it is an obvious hardware issue.

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!

Hi i am unable to delete files on a sandisk micro sd 2gb. i have tried various programs to delete them. the file themselves say it is 0kb but still says full when its in my phone is says it is full. thanks


ok do you want to delete individual file or clean it completely.
if the memory card has gone corrupt the easiest solution to find out whether its gone faulty or just corrupt would be to format the memory card but this would mean losing all that is on there.
to format your card
1. insert it in your computer or laptop
2. go to my computer and you should see your memory card or it may say removable disk :? (? being a letter which it will name it)
3: right click on card and select format from the drop down menu
4: select quick format and click next
and all being well should be clean and ready to use again if it fails the format it generally shows that the memory card has gone faulty

the problem with this memory card is that they can be easily damaged or corrupted, sometimes if you just insert it in-correctly or take it out from your card reader without doing the proper procedure of romoving the device, it can be easily corrupted.

try to clean the bronze part of the memory card , try to clean it with eraser the wipe it dry.It is not 100% solution but worth of trying
