Install the memory card in the device and hook the device up to the computer with the USB cable. Go into my computer and the memory card should show up as a removable storage device. Right click on it with you mouse and select format from the drop down menu. If your computer has a card reader slot on it for your memory card you can just plug it in that slot and repeat the process above. You can also buy an external usb memory card reader for under 10 bucks and also use the same process. Formating the card will prepare it so that you can save files on it. Formating will also erase anything on the card so make sure you save anything you need on it before you format it.

Memory card error card says locked


Hi!

SD cards (or MicroSD, using an adapter) are locked using a mechanical switch on their left side.
Simply, take the SD card (or the SD adapter) and change the switch position.
Usually the UP position is the Unlocked position...

Why my memory card not formatting


Hi!

Your problem might have different causes... As you didn't supply much details I'll try my best to help:

* The memory card itself may be faulty and need to be replaced.
* If connected through a microSD-to-SD adapter and/or SD-to-USB adapter, the adapter(s) might be faulty. Also, try using a different USB port on your computer.
* If you're trying to format it through a camera, the memory card type might not be supported by the camera and therefore it doesn't get formatted. In this case, use a supported card and/or format your card by connecting it to a computer.

Bought new Memory cards for Power Shot A530, it won't format


Hi!
I'd guess that the memory card you've bought is a SDHC card and/or a card of more than 2GB, which - unfortunately - is NOT supported by your camera.
Please note that it only supports normal SD or MMC cards in capacity of up to 2GB.

My 4gb sandisk memorie card unable to format how to format this card, ithik the driver of card is missing plz solve problem


You don't need any drivers for any USB card. If you can't format it, either the memory card or the USB port is defective. Try to use the card at another computer or try another card on the same USB port.

Phone says no card when 8gb card is in


have you inserted the card? if yes, open the settings for your phone, look for your memory card and have it formatted through your phone. your card needs to adapt the phone properties first before you can use it.

if that step didn't work, it's better to check your memory card while using friend's phone. consult your phone specifications also for some clarifications, try to check if it can support 8 gb memory cards.

My memory card is unreadable. I insert it into both of my cameras and into my computer and they all say the format is wrong and they won't read it.


plug your memory card into your computer
go to my computer right click on the memory card then click format.
Maybe one of your cameras have a format function on them, go to settings and it might be in advanced or memory then click format.

oops i accidently put this in clarification... dumb computer locked up and changed it...

Format button deleted my memory card???


Format will wipe clean your memory-card like new - Always.
so normally avoid that button.

if you lost some photos using the format then there maybe some chance to get them back.

take out the card and put it in external card reader.

Now get hold of some file recovery software like 'GetDataBack for FAT32' (buy/borrow/steal :) ) install it on your computer, GetDataBack should be able to pull back the data.

Let me know if any more clarifications needed.

3) Hold those buttons until a formatting screen appears.
4) It automatically completes and ur phone asks for restart.
