The SD500 uses SD cards (and by extension, microSD cards). SDHC and microSDHC cards are electronically incompatible. While SDHC cards and microSDHC adapters will fit into the slot, they will not work in SD devices. This is a hardware issue and cannot be updated by firmware. You need to go with SD (and microSD) cards, 2GB and smaller.

I have a Samsung galaxy centera Smartone and having hard time with replacing a full 2 gb microSDHC Card with 8 gb microSDHC CARD and it still says memory full What do i need to do now


The phone can handle up to 32 Gb micro SD cards, so I think the format is not good. Try formatting the SD card in your phone, to make sure the format is what your phone can work with.
If you can't use the card, because the phone does not let you format is, try formatting it in a PC, using an external memory card reader. Us format FAT32.

SOLUTION 1 - Unlock the memory card. There is a Lock switch on the left side of the SD card. Make sure the Lock switch is slid up (unlock position). You will not be able to modify or delete the contents on the memory card if it is locked. NOTE: If you are using a microSD/microSDHC card or a miniSD/miniSDHC card, insert the card into the microSD/miniSD adapter. The SD adapters will also have a lock switch. SOLUTION 2 - Toggle the lock switch. If the lock switch is loose and moves easily It is likely the switch is sliding to the locked position as the card is placed in your host device. In this case the card will need to be replaced. SOLUTION 3 - Try to Format the card using Disk Manager (For all memory cards) The data on the memory card may be corrupted. Format the card under Disk Management and then try to transfer files to the device once more.

Just bought a 4gb memory card for my cannon eosi rebel - camera says it cannot read the card - does it need to be formatted?


Yes most new cards need to be formatted before they can be read.

If you are having the same issue after formatting, then replace the memory card.

Maybe you could try to format the card in the camera. If that doesn't work, try formatting it in the computer. (The card alone, not the camera connected to the computer) Otherwise I think it's broken. Do you use a micro/mini SD adapter? If the contact is bad, it may tell you "Memory card error" and "card locked" at the same time. Check the contact.

Sd card


There are regular SD cards and high-capacity SD cards (HCSD). Some devices are not compatible with HCSD cards. It sounds like your camera is not compatible. You may still be able to purchase 2G & 4G regular format SD cards that will work fine.

I hope that helps.

SanDisk microSD/microSDHC card not working for my computer


Hi there!!!

I can understand your issue..

When you say if you connect the card into phone and connects to the computer and gets an error message as I/O drive error then i'd say the file format in the card is not recognized by the computer.

I'd suggest you to format the card through the computer. Here is the steps :

1) Open My Computer
2) Right-clicking on Removable Disk
3) Select Format, select the checkbox for "Quick Format".

Hereby check this screen shot
