Problem in connecting Memory card to my W580i

Sir, when ever I swith on my Sony ericcson W580i, I get a message asking for formating of memory card. I accept or not, in both cases the formating fails and when I try to access files in Memory card, it simply says that no memory card was inserted. I formatted the memory card using a computer and tried again but still I failed. Can u please guide through this problem

I have the same issue. ATT service told me that its a software issue. They will replace the phone. In the meantime, this is the fix they gave me.

Remove the battery for a few seconds. This will reset the phone somehow. It WILL NOT erase sim, phone, or storage! This works for awhile and then will not work as well. Its not a memory issue. I have tried the memory in my wifes phone. She has no issues with her 580i. Get it replaced.

Great phone except this single issue!

Format it to your computer first, then format again your memory to your phone so you could get the system files to your memory

Sony ericcson memory card formatting failed

  • Insert your memory card into your computer's reader if you have one. If not, you can purchase a multi-format USB Memory Card reader from or
  • 2 Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives.
  • 3 Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive.
  • 4 In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'.
  • 5 Leave all the options as they are and click on 'Start'. This is a non-reversible process so make sure this is what you truly wanted to do in the first place.
  • 6 Once the process is completed, take the memory card out and insert it into your Digital Camera or any other device. Try to browse to it to make sure it works fine now.

    I have a problem, my cell memory is currently not reading proper

    Hi, it is not a virus, it is the memory card it's getting damage that is why, it acts the way it those.

    What to do is this, backup your data in your computer through the USB cable. After that you will need to format the memory card.

    But note that the memory card will need to be replaced for better performance.

    Take care.
