Connect the disk to a computer and then click right on My Computer then click Manage and then try formatting it from there. if this fails then your disk might be locked. try finding the lock on the disk its kind of a small switch button on the sides of the disk try pushing it on either sides while trying to format it. When it is locked it will say that the disk is Protected and when unlocked it will not be protected thus enabling it to format.

Hi i am unable to delete files on a sandisk micro sd 2gb. i have tried various programs to delete them. the file themselves say it is 0kb but still says full when its in my phone is says it is full. thanks

ok do you want to delete individual file or clean it completely.
if the memory card has gone corrupt the easiest solution to find out whether its gone faulty or just corrupt would be to format the memory card but this would mean losing all that is on there.
to format your card
1. insert it in your computer or laptop
2. go to my computer and you should see your memory card or it may say removable disk :? (? being a letter which it will name it)
3: right click on card and select format from the drop down menu
4: select quick format and click next
and all being well should be clean and ready to use again if it fails the format it generally shows that the memory card has gone faulty
