    Question Something wrong with micro sd

    Advertisement



    Hello Pinstack This is my first post, so if I forget anything, forgive me.

    Ok, I have this 1gb MicroSD card, and it was working fine. my friend asked to borrow it for a day, and when she returned it, it's not working. It doesn't show up on my phone, but when I plug in the USB it ask me if I want to turn on Mass Storage Mode. When I try to open up the drive on my computer, it "freezes" my computer. Anyone know what's wrong?

    Help will be appreciated. Thanks.

    Give it a format...that would be my best guess. Last resort though. Did she format he/she format it? Maybe use the adapter pull everything off and then give it a format.

    I can't access it.Do I just right click on drive and format? Yeah I was going to try and use the adapter. I'm not sure, if she did or not, but she said she got some messages saying something and she didn't want to mess with anything, but at that moment I wasn't paying any attention. Thanks though, reddog187.

    Re: Something wrong with micro sd

    I would start by checking all the settings before I format the card. check to see if she turned off media card support. Also check to see if she maybe turned on mass storage mode?

    If this doesn't work then I would do a battery pull and as a last resort I would reformat the card.

    just my .02

    Ok, so I right clicked to check Properties, and it says that 0 bytes free and 0 bytes used.

    I'm guessing there's something wrong with the microSD

    btw, Stonebreeze, do I check the media card support?

    Yeah, I just checked it, it says on. She didn't borrow my phone, just my microSD. I also tried the adapter, and nothing shows up. Also, when I right click on the J: drive (that's the one for the microSD), it takes a LONG while before anything shows up. I just get the hour glass.

    Re: Something wrong with micro sd

    do you have another card to check if it's not your connectors?
    Make sure it's seated properly and locked in.
    Other than that, your friend may have fried your card, or did the switch-a-roo with your card. sorry j/k.

    Yeah I think she might've fried it somehow. She said she just got a blackberry, so do you think that her phone's version affected the card somehow?

    I don't think so it shouldn't matter, because all of the OS's are able to recognize a 1GB card.

    Re: Something wrong with micro sd

    So why wouldn't you want to turn on Mass Storage mode?

    That's what allows your PC to use the SD Card in the phone as an external drive.

    Should it NOT be on?
