    What size is the card?



    You might want to the support website for your computer and see if they have a new driver for it.

Mini sd card may need formatting or adaptor may be faulty.
You can buy a USB stick with SD card adaptor slot instead.

Make sure the power is off when you do this, of you could unintentionally harm your phone.3. Power back on, and transfer the pictures to the micro-SD card.4.

If your Gateway laptop has a SD card reader:

If your laptop doesn't have a SD card reader:
5. You'll need to purchase a second adapter that adapts the regular-sized SD card to a USB port.6. Following the manufacturer's instructions, put the SD card into the second adapter.7. Transfer the pictures to your computer. Done!


Best of luck, Juseppi

How do I download photos from LG VU (CU920) cell phone to my computer?


you can use the bluetooth feature if your computer also has bluetooth capability. if not, hopefully you're using a mini SD card. if your computer has a port for mini SD's, then just take the mini SD out of your phone and plug into your computer. if your computer has a regular SD port, then you need to get yourself a mini SD adapter. it looks just like an SD card, but it has a small opening to slide your mini into. if there are no SD ports on your computer, simply buy yourself a Flashdrive (thumbdrive) that has a port on it for mini SD cards. then, just plug that into your USB port.
if you're not using a mini SD card in your phone, then you need a data transfer cable, which you probably have to get from AT&T. i tried radio shack, but they didn't have them. In my experience, using a mini SD card provides the most compatibility. hope this helps.

My mini sd card is in raw format and my computer can't read it - how do i change it back to fat file system ?


  1. Place the mini-SD card within the mini-to-SD card adapter. Make sure the tab on the mini-SD is facing the upper side of the adapter. Slide it in slowly, being careful not to damage the pins.
  2. Slide the adapter in an SD slot on your computer. If you do not have an SD slot, place the adapter in a USB card reader, and plug that into a USB slot on your computer. Give the computer time to read the card.
  3. Open "My Computer" (usually located in your start menu) and navigate to your mini-SD card. It will usually be recognized as a drive such as "E:" or "H:."
  4. Right-click on the drive and select the "Format" option. A menu window will open.
  5. Make sure that the drive size is set correctly, and that it is set to the file system you wish to use (usually FAT32 on an SD card). If you don't know what file system you should use, just leave it at the default setting.
  6. Enter a volume label, which is the name for the drive, then press start. This process should only take a few minutes.
WARNING
  • Do not use the "Quick Format" option unless you have just recently formatted the mini-SD card. "Quick Format" doesn't completely erase all data and is not effective unless used after a full format.
  • When you format your mini-SD card, all of the data on it will be erased. Make sure to back up your files on the card before formatting

I have a T-Mobile G1 with a micro sd card; trying to sync??


most mini sd cards come with a full-sized sd card adapter that the mini slips into. You can then slip that in your computer if you have an sd slot or sd reader.
You can also buy very inexpensively, a usb port mini sd reader that you can plug directly into your usb port on your computer. Then after you'v dragged and dropped the files, you can put the mini sd back in your phone.

Problem with the mini SD Card


Thats weird! This is the right size of SD card for your camcorder. http://www.tristatecamera.com/lookat.php?sku=1GBSD80MINI&stsid=CANHG10 Did you try one of the same size?If yes then Did you try an adapter like this one? http://www.nextag.co.uk/INTEGRAL-Micro-SD-Card-1508586241/uk/prices-html?nxtg=16420a280d0a-59E6FEB3CB48EF1E You should get an adapter of appropriate size and place the micro SD card in the adapter and then insert the adapter into the camcorder.

Micro sdhc card reader will not recognize 8gig card


You problem is most likely to be the fact that your micro chip is a HC chip. HC chips have a new program that is not backwards compatible to regular sd host ports. This is a simple fix, however. If you don't trust downloading programs for it on the internet, just go to target or walmart and get a USB SD card reader, and a SD adapter if you don't already have one. The usb adapter should only be like $10 at most.

SD card reader


1) There is SD card reader on pavilion dv 1000, so you need adapter in which you insert mini SD card to make it SD
2) If you have that adapter, check adapter. Maybe it's broken.
3) If your card is biger, like 2GB or higher you may try updatenig drivers (I read on one web page: " There was a software update for support of reading and using higher memory SD cards, for my pavilion ZV5000, on the HP Software update website." )

SanDisk problem


Blast slot with compressed air, especially if you use phone without the blank in thus mentioned slot for it has no cover. If this has no affect, than it is a hardware problem. Go to a Cingular store that has someone that knows the phone, I'd call ahead. Check the online manual, maybe.

high chance that your card is dead...take it to another card reader, like at a Wal-Mart kiosk to transfer pics for printing.
