You don't need an image. Just format it. Put your drive into a USB port; right click on that drive after it appears in My Computer and select Format; set the File System drop-down to NTFS (better file storage space) or FAT32 (more compatibility in older operating systems) and click Start.

Depending on the file type/format you are trying to read, you may need a specific type of editor. What is the file type (file extension)? You can right-click on the file and select Properties to find out more information about the file.

You may need to format the memory card after installing it into your camera. Some cameras use proprietary formatting.

Your laptop may need drivers installed for your flash drive. Visit your USB drive manufacturer's website, find the "Support" page, and download the drivers for your specific drive. Be sure to know what version of your operating system you are running as it may be necessary to ensure you get compatible drivers. Install the drivers and try again.

Visit the Sandisk website and visit their "Support" pages. Search for your model of USB drive and look for driver downloads.

I've seen this due to not having the correct drivers on your computer that support the connected flash drive. Visit the flash drive manufacturer website and look for support there. You may be able to download a driver. Be sure to know what you operating system is because that may matter to select the correct drivers.

Take your memory card out of the device and switch the position of the "lock" tab. One position is for "locked" (i.e., "Write Protected") and the other position will allow the card to be written to (unlocked).

Hi - Did you format it on your computer or in your device. You may need to format the SD card in the phone itself as computer formatting may not be compatible.

Here is a video tutorial that can help you restore card data back from this formatted SD card step by step:
I find it when my Seagate hard drive was formatted by my friend and it helps me restore most of my drive videos, files and images.
So, it can also be useful for you.
From now on, make SD card data backups all the time.

SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

If you format the card you can set the "volume". You may be able to change it by using Properties in Windows Explorer.

In Windows copy the file using Windows Explorer. Open two windows and drag and drop from one to the other to create the copy. (If you right-click and drag, you will be able to Move instead of Copy).

hi melissa
i hope your issues has been fixed.

but can you elaborate on the issue which you have.

As per your question there are multiple answers.

which operating system are you using,

what happens when you plug in your sandisk

was it working before.

have you tried it on different machines .

1 GB = 1024 MB (mega bytes)
1 MB =1024 KB (kilobytes)
1 KB = 1024 bytes
1 GB = 1024*1024*1024 bytes
1 GB = 1073741824 bytes

But manufacturers count 1GB as 1000000000 bytes, so it's normal that a sd card which advertise being 4GB is in reality 3.7GB (4000000000 / 1024 / 1024 / 1024 = 3.72 GB).

On Windows systems you may drag and drop or copy and paste.
Bring up your flash drive by double clicking it : Start - Computer -click on the flash drive.. Make that window smaller by clicking on the square "windows" icon if you want . Then you can open the files you wish to copy, highlight them and right click "copy" then click on the flash drive window and right click and "paste" Or you may open both the flash drive window and the files you wish to copy window and drag and drop them into the flash drive window by clicking on the file and holding the mouse button down while "dragging" it into the flash drive window then releasing the mouse button.

Open it in a file explorer, select the files you want to backup and then copy them over to where you want the backup located.

If you're in Windows you can go into your Administrative Tools > Computer Management and select Storage > Disk Management. You can work with any drive attached to your computer from there. Just right click on the drive and choose "Change drive letter and paths".
