Re: Memory card not deteced by mobile or computer.

Is the card known to work in anything? Is it new? is your phone and/or computer SD or SDHC compliant?

 

Many older devices and computers will read the SD format, but not the SDHC (4GB & larger) format. There's a Microsoft update that will take care of that so your computer will read it; you will have to check your phone's specs and/or website to see if it can be upgraded.

I just bought a new Sandisk Micro SDHC (4GB) mobile memory card  but could not be detected by mobile or computer. What seems to be the matter?

I am having this same problem. I have been able to use this same SD previously on this computer and I don't believe it's outdated or anything, but the PC does absolutely nothing when I plug it in. I open My Computer and it only lists the C: and D: drives

Re: Memory card not deteced by mobile or computer.

I have a 2 gb sandisk memory card. it came in a pack with two different sized adapters that the memory card can slip into, depending on what size is compatible with your computer (i did not know that this is what you do with the memory card). i was keeping the tiny memory card in my phone (LG choc 8500), while plugging the charger cord (which doubles as the usb cable) into my computer. alas, that did nothing. more frustration--thinking it must be that i don't have the right "software" to run to access my photos and doing many searches for the "right" software solution... then the discovery with inserting the memorycard into the adapter (on my laptop, it's at the front below the touchpad-very sly sneaky place). then, after, again, nothing happening, searching forums on other lost memory card-ers, i discovered that there is a very tiny "switch" on the left of the adapter, next to the "S" on sandisc, that must be flipped down in order to "work," or grant photo/media access. a prompt came up on my screen asking me to choose which program to run/open the photos on (for me, it was windows media center), and to my relief, all my photos were there! i hope this helps.

Re: Memory card not deteced by mobile or computer.

I have a couple of ideas...

1) Check your mobile phone and computer are both compatible (though they should be...,)
2) Clean the micro sd card
3) Make sure its properly inserted
4) Turn it the other way round

Are you serious? The cards will only go in one way.
