    I have a Fujifilm xD 2GB card that gives me the same error when I insert it into the SanDisk card reader. I can't copy anything to my docs or anything. When it tries to copy I get the same error - 'the disk in drive 'x' is not formatted'. Now what?

Right Click Computer, Properties, Manage, Disk Management. If it doesn't show up here the card is bad. If it shows up as Not Initialized, right click it and initialize it then right click and partition it.

My girl took pics of wedding Saturday and viewed pics earlier today. When she went to look at them again, a message " Disc in Drive E is not formatted. Do you want to format disc now?" Of...


do not format -- you will lose the pictures

instead go to another computer that supports SD memory and CDRW. insert into that computer and then take all the PICS, save into that computer. now take a blank CD and take the saved PICs and burn into CD.
Also, to ensure you dont lose these pictures (PICs) you may want to buy a 4G or 8G USB thumb drive (about $10-$15 or less) -- drag and drop all the PICs (saved on that computer) into the USB thumb drive. Now you have on CD and USB drive.

hope this helps

Problem with reading Sandisk 4gig hc micro sd card in my computer and laptop


Does the micro sd card been detected by your computer? If not, you may try other card reader, or other computer. If still does not detected, you may try to go to device manager and see whether the sd card is there, if yes, then you can assign a drive letter to the sd card.

Once SD card shows as a drive letter on PC, you can download sd card recovery software to get back your files. recommended asoftech photo recovery that helped me before. download it from link below
SD Card Recovery Software

You can refer to this card recovery tutorial
Recover files from SD Card

If above does not work, you may have to format the memory card (use quick format), and then use Asoftech Data Recovery to scan again the memory card and recover your files.

How do u format sandisk microsd 2gb and microsdhc 4gb disks


You can only form sd Hc if your card reader is approved for SDHC use. It should tell you that on the outside of the card reader or in the documentation of the card reader.

If your drive isn't formatting 2gb, it could be that the driver was designed prior to 2gb cards being released. You could look for a new driver or replace it with a card reader that supports SD HC use as will as a 2 gb SD drive.

The card is probably formatted with a FAT16 filesystem. Try reformatting the card with a FAT32 filesystem.
