    I have been using the phone with the memory card for about 3 yrs now and it was working fine. It has now started giving me the message"memory card unavailable." which makes all my music, pictures etc. unacessable.

    I have tried another card in the phone and it's not reading it. Does this then mean the card reader is not working or should I still try formatting the card.

    I have an inspiron 530 with windows vista where would the memory card slot be located?

memory card needs to be formatted before use, make sure the memory card is formatted if you do it on a computer make sure it it FAT type not FAT32.

if you want to format the card on a computer with a card reader open computer or my computer from your desktop or from start menu then select the removable storage device from there that is your memory card -- right click and select format, then Select FAT and leave everything else as it and hit format.

when the format is done you can remove the card from the computer and put it in the phone and you should be good to do, your phone can also be used to format it if you wish.

To format the memory card;

1. Select 'Menu' (press Navi key).
2. Highlight 'Organizer' and 'Select' (press Navi key).
3. Highlight 'File manager' and 'Select' (press Navi key).
4. Press 'Options' (left softkey).
5. Highlight 'Memory status' and 'Select' (press Navi key).
6. Highlight 'Memory card' and press the Navi key.
7. Press 'Options' (left softkey).
8. Highlight 'Format mem.card' and 'Select' (press Navi key).
9. You will now see the message,
"Note: All content on memory card will be lost. Format anyway?".
10. Press 'Yes' (press Navi key).
11. Enter 'Phone lock code" (this is as default 0000) and press 'OK'.

    okay, 3 possible reasons for that -- 1. the memory card has broken down and is no longer usable.
    2. The memory card is corrupt - and will work again after formatting but you will lose all content in it.
    3. The card reader on the phone has stopped working or does not touch the cards contacts properly anymore.

    To confirm that your phone works properly try another memory card if possible, if the other card works with the phone, then just try reseating the original, if it still doesn't work then the problem is either 1 or 2.

    if the card doesn't work in a computer, then try formatting it, if it doesn't work after that or the format is not possible then the memory card is broken and you need a new card.

    hello, I've received the same message two times from you?

  • Ekse Mar 12, 2011

    you would need a memory card reader, most computers dont have one build in, if your phone does not read another card its means your phone or the card reader it has is faulty or not touching properly.

Inactive SIM problem in Sony Ericsson w760i.

Hi mslsweden,
It does sound like the sim reader might be malfunctioning or the sim card could be worn.
in this case i would recommend you simply try another sim card with the same network before assuming its the sim card reader.

I hope this helps :)
