Question about PNY 2GB microSD Memory Card

4 Answers

Computer is not reading my Micro SD, but phone is reading..

I inserted the Micro SD into the Adapter, then I put the adapter into the computer slot, and the computer shows it's in, but every time either freezes up or says "Please insert a disc into SD Card (F:)." I just bought it yesterday, so maybe I am doing something completely wrong. It works in my Cell phone which is a T-Mobile Nokia 6086 just fine, but I want to use the card on my computer.

Please get back to me as soon as possible.

Thank you for your time.

    Well, it is a 2gb Micro SD, and I just reformatted it, and the same thing is still happening. I am wondering if there is some other kind of software to read the card other than just the "My Computer" application that comes with the computer. If there isn't than what is my problem?

    I checked it in my upstairs printer, computer, and in my Nintendo Wii, and the other computer doesn't read it at all. The Wii says something like Can't read SD card, and the printer says error. But it's weird that it works in the phone. I've tried 2 different adapters for the card as well. It could be that I'm using an over 1gb card, in which case I will just use the card for extra picture and video storage on my phone, but I'd appreciate it if I could download them off of the computer.

What size is the SD card in GBs? If it is larger than 2GB (4 or 8) do you have a SDHC card reader?
Also try formating the card first in the phone and then using it. Using it straight out of the package, while able to be written, my have difficultly with other devices reading the data.

SD card reader software is incorporated in service pack 2. If the micro card works ok it may be the adapter is at fault. Have you checked on a different computer to see if it still malfunctions?

I recently had a phone exchanged for the identical phone. (nokia 6086 flip phone) When I tried to see my photos on my new phone from my micro SD card it would not read it and said "Card not formatted, Operation failed". Now it will not see it on my new phone either. What do I do.

There are card readers out there that have trouble reading memory cards greater than 1 gb. You might want to replace your card reader with a newer model.

You'll need an adapter to convert the Micro SD card into a normal size SD card, slot the Micro SD into the SD card adapter and then plug that into the computer.
Most computers then pop up a box to tell you that you've plugged something in, so you can then browse what is on the card.
Double clicking on the items on the card will then enable you to view the images/items.

Where do I insert my microSD memory card or does my computer have a slot for it?

Here are the ways for you to insert your microSD to your computer

1. Use "memory card reader" (this is probably the best way)
find the slot that says "micro sd" that's where youre going to insert the microSD

2. Use the internal memory card reader of your pc ( if your computer has it)
it is located in front of your desktop. The find the slot that says "micro sd" and insert it.

You don't need the SD adapter in your mobile phone. You may use it by inserting the micro SD card into the SD adapter, then insert the SD card adapter in a "SD card reader" and use it in a USB slot in your computer to access files from your "micro SD card".

I hope this helped you.

My micro SD memory card 1gb can not read in my cellphone what should i do?


It might be broken. TO check, insert it into another phone that requires micro sd card. OR insert it into a micro sd adapter, then put it in a SD card reader, then connect it to your computer and see if it can be read. If your computer can read it, format it then try it on your phone again (All files will be deleted when you format it). If all devices can't read it, then that is the end of it.

How do you put your sandisk microSDHC card with adapter in your camera

That depends on the camera. If the camera supports Sandisk Micro, then the SD card will fit into a slot. The slot is often located near to the battery.

You will just have to push card in and camera will automatically read card.

If camera does not read the card, ensure that the camera model can support SanDisk Micro, and that it will also support card size. Older cameras do not support big memory card (eg.4Gb)

It doesnt work when i insert the card with my micro memory card and asks for a disk

Hi likkle_miss_,

The Micro adapter has no memory in it. It is just an adapter to use so you can plug your Micro SD memory card into a larger (SD) slot. The SD Micro memory card needs to be inserted into the adapter.

Installing micro SD adaptor

if you are holding the phone with the camera lens toward you, the micro sd slot is on the right side ...owners manual pgs 11,12

the adapter does not go into the phone

the adapter you got should be the size and shape of a regular sd card...this is for insertion into memory card reader/writers...the micro sd card fits into the top of the just makes it easier for you to transfer images to and from your computer or separate digital camera that holds a full size sd card

Micro SD 2 GB just stopped working

The PIC or EEPROM inside these cards may not be working. I guess you best bet is to buy a new one try Kingston brand or go with another Sandisk.
