Question about Cell Phones
I am having Problems with formating samsung mobile E250 micro sd card. Whenever I try to format a card it is giving a error message. Earlier it was working fine but suddenly it has stopped working , so i tried to format the memory card but it did not worked. Can a virus in a computer can have done this when i have connected my mobile to PC. Or can mine memory card could have got damaged. I am using 1 GB Transcend micro SD card.
Did you try to format the card in the device thru Windows Media Player, or Rhapsody? If so, try formatting it thru My Computer instead. My Computer>Device Name>Right Click and select format. It is most likely NOT a virus if you have only put music on the device. It is most likely a corrupt file, or a database error. Best of Luck.

I Had the same problem, however it was only the first time. I have a Samsung A711, it came up with a message saying that i needed to reformat it, an so i did, and it came up with a error message.
How to fix: plug it into the computer and right click on the "removable drive" icon then click format. format it normally, now put it back in your phone, and turn the phone off and then back on. now go over to memory usage, it will ask you if you want to reformat, and press "yes" this time it should work.

You will find that most phones except for very new and very expensive only support 2GB expandable memory (ie: Micro SD). They usually don't tell you in the box or manual. 2GB is still pretty good for a phone.

The solution for the problem is quite simple, open up the folder, extract all the folders and files to ur desktop. Then do this, go back into my computer and format it normally, not using quick format. after that just put ur files back on there if u are 100% sure that they are not corrupting the device then wallah it works :) =] i just did it for 2 of my micro sd cards that didnt work properly.

If you have any problem with formatting, just insert the card then switch your phone off then on. am 100% sure it will work

I think you can try and format the card from the phone itself. Just access your card through your phone, and there should be an option for you to be able to format your memory card.

You just have to change it to mass storage

I had the same problem and I tried everything. I couldn't think of anything else to do so I just turned my phone off and back on again. When I went back to the memory card menu on my phone all the folders that I lost re-appeared. I don't know if it would work on other phones but it's worth a try!
