    Question PC not reading Mini SD mem card for my Phone


    I recently bought a 2GB mini SD card for my mobile phone (Nokia 6280). It works as it should in the phone. 4400 photos at top settings, 2 1/2 hours video and loads of songs. My problem starts when I plug it into the PC. There's just nothing there, as if nothing's plugged in. I tried it in the Adaptor, same thing. I would be grateful for even the slightest bit of advice.

    What actually happens when you insert the card ? Does the machine detect it ?

    2.) It is wrong to be French

    4.) Lawyers, see rule 3
    5.) It is O.K. to drive a gas guzzler if it helps you get babes
    6.) Everyone should car pool but me
    7.) Bring back the word 'stewardesses'

    When inserted in my card reader (in the SD adapter as I only have a SD slot) it isn't detected. When I connect my phone in, it says the card isn't formatted and would I like to format? When I try to format, it starts the format but then says 'Windows could not format the card'.

    It is possible that your phone is using a non-windows format for file storage. Does your phone support reading from FAT/FAT32 formatted storage cards? this is the most common format used by them. If not, you are stuck - there is no way to read the card except through an app provided by the phone.

    Weird seeing as how you never made any changes. Still, at least it's working.
