Question about Sony Ericsson Walkman W810i Cellular Phone

1 Answer

My SE phone cannot detect my M2... when I insert it, the phone wants to format it. If I click OK, it says Formatting Failed. I already formatted it on my PC using a card reader, but my phone still can't detect it. It says, Memory card not Inserted. Please advise.

Im phon not format/delete

  • Prepare your memory card for formatting. Decide whether you would like to format using your phone or your computer. If you decide to use your computer, remove the micro memory card from your phone and place it into the memory card adaptor. If you decide to use your phone's removable memory card slot, insert the memory card into the phone while the phone is off, before turning on your phone.
  • 2Navigate to the menu and select your phone options. Locate the menu that includes the technical list; you should see "Media Card" or "Memory Card" listed as an option. If your phone has a separate menu for Memory options, look within this for your memory card menu option.
  • 3Access the memory card menu and click "Options." Be sure that memory card support is enabled. Next, select "Format." This may be found listed or you may need to click on the menu within the memory card menu you have already accessed. After selecting the format you may have the option to choose between formatting the media card and/or the device memory. Select "Media card" if confirmation is required. Keep in mind you will be losing any data previously stored on your card.
  • 4Select OK when your phone asks you to confirm format. Your memory card will now be formatting to your phone and a progress bar may appear. Do not power off or navigate away from this screen. When formatting is complete, your phone will notify you and the progress bar will no longer be visible. You may need to confirm with an "OK" that your memory card has finished formatting.
  • 5For Windows users who wish to format using a computer, place the micro memory card within the adaptor and insert it into your computer's memory card slot. You can also connect to your computer using an external adaptor if your laptop doesn't feature one built in. After connecting the memory card, select "My Computer" within your Windows menu. Select your memory card, which should be listed within this folder. Right-click on the menu and select the format. Your computer settings will prompt you to accept the format and complete the process.

  • sincerely. God bless you.

    It wants me to format the card

    take the card out ..and insert it in a card reader and this way save all the files inside into the computer ..cause formatting the card will erase all the data on it ..
    if it asks for formatting it means that it detected some issues in the memory 's alocation units ..and it will not work again until you format it ..If you already have saved the files from the memory card ..just go ahead and format it ...the best choise is to format it in the camera ..but if it do not works..try into the card reader ..just insert it ..than go to my computer folder..right click on the card icon (removable storage device) ..and choose from the list format quick ..and the Fat 32 mode..and ok ..

    Mmc is not detected in the phone (it says "mmc is corrupted" ) though it opens in pc. I hav formatted it with fat option (hard format and not Quick format).other mmc if inserted show the same problem....

    Try to read your memory card with your computer, use memory card reader, if problem same. it's say mmc corrupted, need to format also, that mean your memory card damage already.

    I did a reformat but still my phone cannot detect the memory card

    1. If your memory card can be detected on your computer, then try to completely format the card.

    2. Goto Start >> My Computer >> Right-Click the memory card icon >> Format >> Uncheck the Quick Format option >>
    Start >> OK / Yes (confirm the request!).

    3. If the memory card cannot be detected / readed by your PC, phone, or camera, then that card has become corrupt / unrepairable!

    4. You should replace that memory card with a compatible one!

    please rate this advice if it! :)

    Mr Jacques,
    Welcome to fixya free solutions. First I'd advise you not to re-insert your mem stick again in SE before formatting. Take a nokia cell from any of your friend. fit it in Nokia set don't try to browse the mem card simply click options and format it. It will easilly format the stick and now you can use it in your SE set also. If you face any problem kindly do comment back.

    My sony m2 memory card is not working in any phone, when i look for my files on the phone it just says memory card not inserted, however when i put the card in a universal reader on my pc, i can see that...

    there are chances of the card not fitting properly into the slot provided..
    one way would be to insert another card and try out what happens and
    the other is the phone software may be corrupted

    also try to format the card from your system and then try it on your phone

    Motokrzr K1 i can not format the memory card

    I've gotten it to recognize a 1GB card. It seems like there has to be some way to get a 2GB to work, what could be the difference between them? I tried partitioning the card on my computer to 512MB, but it still wont work.
