No, you didn't loose memory. You just have to reformat it. When you do, check if you can change the total capacity with drop down menu, also try settings it to FAT32.

If not, you could use another computer or even a portable device like cellphone or camera to try and format it.

Don't worry, you cannot 'loose' the 64gb.

Testimonial: "when I inserted the card into my Galaxy 3 phone it was possible to format it back to its 64gb volume. I believe my problem with the PC Windows 7 had to do with using a card reader that does not work with SDXC cards. I will shop for a better reader and recheck after that. thank you"

Try putting the memory card in your PC and formatting it from My Computer.

If you have a camera that takes this kind of card, you can try to format the memory card from there as well.

SOURCE: I purchased a 4GB Sandisk

your samsung Gravity 2 wont read the HC format, there is not much you can do sorry. the SD HC is a newer format for devices in the last year or so. Older devices will not accept the HC format cards. I did the same thing! And im in the business, easy mistake. Keep it around though you'll use it soon, just not in your Samsung. Gurvy

If you a using a card reader that plugs into your PC and it STILL doesn't read from the card, this means that the card itself is defective and needs to replaced. You CAN try using another card reader to see if that helps.

Hope this helps. :)

I have an 8GB micro sd card for my blackberry storm when i put it in. It says media card has inserted contains errors. to correct the errors use a disk error-checking utility on a computer. what do i need...


Hi,

The chances on any micro sd card showing errors can be either the files stored in it are corrupted or the card is simply bad already. You may try to identify the problem by performing the following steps.

1· Access micro sd card through a card reader. May it be built-in in a computer or an accessory that needs to be plugged-in to a computer.
2· Wait for a few seconds for the computer to read the micro sd card.
a· If it asked you to "open the folder to view files", do so then copy all contents in a new folder on your desktop. This is to make a backup copy of your files. Then, format the micro sd card with FAT32 format. Copy all files back to your micro sd card.
b· If it asked you to format the micro sd card, most likely all files are corrupted. Try to format the card for re-use. If not successful, your micro sd card is bad already and needs replacement.

I hope this works for you. Good Luck!

Memory card micro sd cannot format


Definitely your Micro SD Card has a problem. might be ita a virus problem.

Try to format it by your Computer not by your Phone. If you have a AntiVirus scan your Card and then try to format it.

if you are not successful in one chance Don't afraid at all, try it three or four times by removing and then inserting the Card again in the Computer........
