Easy solution, don't buy cheep memory cards they have lots of reformatting problems. the cheep ones get damaged often and need to be reformatted, while the real ones will only need reformatting if you turn it off during a save, and then its only the one file is damaged not all of them.

Try take the card out, then put it back in fully. I've seen this problem before on an Official Nintendo GameCube 251 Block. If there are saves on it, and it still asks you to format the card, just take the card out, and put it back in. You could also try a different slot... Chances are, you just have to take the card out and put it in again for some odd reason. I've seen this fixing that issue. I don't think any of the hardware, i.e. the GameCube or the Memory Card are damaged in any way. Hope this helps.

How to solve the problem " please insert the disk into drive" of memory card

ok how did format get done? if not on computer then formatting needs to be done with card in computer and do a thorough format NOT quick format

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.

    Memory card corrupted

    Try reformatting it by inserting into a card reader connected to PC. If it is indeed only a bad sector in the card then you will lose data but still salvage your card. Otherwise you will lose both card and data. Also, if you are using a linux OS then there are data retrieval methods available from corrupt cards as well. Kindly clarify OS.

    On pokemon XD it keeps saying that the save file currupts I have alot of room on it but it still crrupts so what do I do to fix this

    • Fully Corrupt:
      When the entire save area of the Memory Card becomes corrupt, the system will inform the player that the Memory Card is corrupt and offer to format it. The card must be formatted before gameplay begins or when the game attempts to access the Memory Card. The exact message may vary from software to software.
      Follow the steps for formatting a memory card.

    • Suggestion: It is always a good idea to copy your most important files to a second Memory Card as a back-up.

    • Data Area Only Corrupt:
      When only the data area of a Memory Card is corrupt (not the entire Memory Card) the game may not detect this until the Memory Card is accessed. Once it is accessed, the game will inform the player that the file being accessed is corrupt and must be erased. The game will only delete the one file being accessed and will not format the entire Memory Card (Other saved game files on the Memory Card may be OK).
      Follow the steps for deleting a file.

      For specific issues with the Memory Card 1019, please click here.
    • Memory Card is Damaged:
      If the Memory Card has been physically damaged, or has been damaged beyond repair, you will get this message. The Memory Card will need to be replaced. The system may attempt to format the card, but if it cannot it will give the error Memory Card is Damaged. There is no way to recover the game data from the memory card.
      Please use our convenient repair options.

      For specific issues with the Memory Card 1019, please click here.

      Suggestion: It is always a good idea to copy your most important files to a second Memory Card as a back-up.

    This procedure is only used if a corrupted Memory Card is inserted into the Nintendo GameCube.
    If required, this procedure will begin automatically when you select "Memory Card Screen" from the main menu. You cannot use this procedure to erase files from a useable Memory Card.
    1. After selecting "Memory Card Screen" from the Main Menu, if your Memory Card requires formatting, a window will appear to ask for confirmation for formatting.
    2. Use the Control Stick to select "YES" and press the A Button
    3. A window will appear to notify you that all data will be erased and ask again for confirmation for formatting.
    4. Use the Control Stick to select "YES" and press the A Button.
    NOTE: When you format a Memory Card, all data will be permanently erased and unable to be recovered.

    Hi, problem can solved.When a memory card says formatted operation failed,it means the memory has been affected with VIRUSin it,thats why it's not given you access to get into it.

    Remove the memory card from the phone, then plug it in to compatible card reader on your computer. It will appear under your Hard Drives on the My Computer window. Right-click on it then click format. On the format window make sure to set the File System to FAT 32, once the formatting is done. Right-click on it again then click on Eject. Plug it back in to your phone to check if it works fine now. If not then have the memory card replaced.
