Whenever you receive a message saying the memory card is corrupted, this means that there is a virus or some sort of dangerous file which is trying to or disfigure your phone system.
Normally there are two ways to go about this problem, one of which is to make a complete back-up of all your files and then do a format of the memory stick or of the phone memory depending on which memory is corrupted.
Also, you can connect it to your computer if it is the memory card and then use a good anti-virus to scan your memory card, normally if it is a virus it should eliminate the virus while scanning.
Lastly, if the message is from your phone memory, then the only available option is to flash the phone memory and this requires expertise and should be sent to a repairer.
hope this solved your problem?

Nokia N900 Smartphone Firmware Update v3.2010.02-8 (PR 1.1.1)

If your Nokia N900 smartphone is freezing, hanging or acting up I recommend you update the system software / firmware of your device. Erratic behavior can often be corrected by a firmware upgrade.

Here are the instructions for updating your N900 smartphone:

Over the Air (OTA) Update
  1. From the phone's home screen key in *#0000# or go to Device manager
  2. Select Options then Check for updates
  3. Follow the prompts on the screen to complete the update

Update via a Windows PC
  1. Download and install the Nokia Software Updater
  2. Connect your N900 to your PC with the supplied USB Cable
  3. Open the Nokia Software Updater application
  4. Follow the on-screen prompts to update your device

Update via a Mac
  1. Download the 770Flasher tool
  2. Download the latest available N900 firmware image

  4. Connect the N900 to your computer via USB cable (with the device turned off)
  5. Run the 770Flasher application
  6. Drag the firmware you downloaded in step 2 to the 770Flasher application (you will get an error regarding a USB device not being found, ignore it)
  7. Turn the phone on
  8. The update process will now begin automatically once the N900 boots
  9. You are safe to disconnect your phone from the computer when you see the normal desktop reappear on the N900 display

Update via a Linux PC
  1. Download and extract the Linux Flasher tool
  2. Download the latest available N900 firmware image
  3. Turn the N900 off
  4. Connect the phone to your computer via USB cable (with the device turned off)
  5. Open a Terminal window and run 'sudo ./flasher-3.5 -F -f -R' (you will get an error regarding a USB device not being found, ignore it)
  6. Turn the phone on
  7. The update process will now begin automatically once the N900 boots
  8. You are safe to disconnect your phone from the computer when you see the normal desktop reappear on the N900 display
I hope that helps.

My nokia n900 does not show internal 32gb memory and shows memory card corrupted.i had tried through nokia care they did flashing.even clear my device through setting but problem not sorted out.please...


I had the same problem. Just format the memory FAT32 using Windows... that is not a joke!... just try it...the 32MB memory acts as an external (card) memory thus can be formated using Windows... obviously the info on the memory will be lost unless you have a backup file...

It refuses to boot completely after going off and reads system malfunction

This can be caused by number of reasons:
  • switched off the device or battery was removed in the middle of a system update
  • tampering with the system software (Maemo5) or SIM lock protection
  • defective memory or other component fried
  • water or dirt inside the device or external connectors
The N900 is targeted at computer nerds (I have one, too :-), so given expert knowledge on mobile devices and the intrinsics of the Maemo operating system it is running you can actually do a lot of modifications and repairs yourself, including completely re-programming the device from scratch. Nothing for the faint-hearted, though.

However, I recommend contacting a Nokia service station for fixing your phone. To my experience, if no spare parts are required, they ask very reasonable fees for repairs and since the N900 is relatively new still, you might be eligible for a warranty covered fix.

Back up all your data and file(s), example your contact and messages. Install Nokia PC Suite latest version from the website nokia. By installing nokia pc suite you can open your phone memory card and memory card to save it to your computer. After saving your contacts, messages and other files it is time to format your nokia n900 using nokia pc suite. Then test you phone.
