Question about SanDisk Memory Media

1 Answer

1Gb SD Card

Hi, I've downsized a bunch of photos totaling about 423 Mb to put on my card, and the card will only load between 16-27 Mb before it says that it's full. The dialog box shows that there is over 900Mb empty space. I've tried this with two different cards with the same result. Both cards work fine in my camera, so it must be something I'm doing wrong, but I haven't a clue what it may be. I'm running OS X 10.4.10 on a Intel iMac Help! Thanks, Greg

    Hi again,
    Nope, didn't work. I get a dialogue box that says it can't copy any more because the card is full, but the card's dialogue box says there's 968.2 Mb available. When I click on "OK", the photo files that have just been put on the card are erased, so basically, I can't get anything at all to stay on the card. Jeez.

You have a hidden trash file on the card, emptying the system trash with the card mounted will also empty the hidden trash file on the card. To prevent this kind of issue and issues of your hidden system files showing up in windows, you can use a clean eject tool such as FinderCleaner www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/16996 to clean off all the hidden system files before ejecting the card, this is not strictly necessary and nor does it cause any harm it just prevents issues associated with these files.

    In finder click Go, then click Utilities, then click Disk Utility and Format the card, if you intend to use the card with anything other than Mac OS X make sure you format it as FAT32, otherwise use HFS+ to considerably increase speed. Disk Utility also offers you a Verify Disk option so use this to check the card's integrity and post the result here.
    To be honest if this doesn't resolve it then you have a hardware fault with the card and it will need replacing.
    I am extremely surprised this wasn't the old trash issue as it usually is with the symptoms you described. The trash issue catches every inexperienced Mac user out because it's not an issue common to Windows.

Sandisk Sansa e130

I have a 1GB SD card in my E130 Sansa. I had fill it up to 998MB. The only problem is that I have to leave 3MB in the flash unit. I guess it need it for constructing the Music Library.
The Flash (512MB) and the SD card (1GB) are both in FAT32.
I guess that it may be a problem of the SD card itself and not a problem of the Sansa.
1) Have you tried to read the SD card with a card reader (without the Sansa)?
2) Have tried formatting the SD card (not a quick format, but a real one) in FAT32 (be careful about that).
