Have you formatted it in the phone? Why not get a memory card reader and try, they sell them in Australia for about AUD$25 - which, using my n-gage currency covertor works out to be approx GBP 10 :)

the best way for you to go is to buy the external mmc reader or borrow one or if your broke an wanna try something diferent

go to a photo develope place that developes digital photos and stuff (ill recomend a pharmacy...from a big franchise its easier to find incompetent ppl who dont know what they are doing) prettend you want to develope after the person dont know what to do becuse it cant read the card ask them to format the card on FAT 16 which i belive its just FAT on the options ....if they ask it usually have 3 option NFTS,FAT 32 and FAT....you just want the FAT

if you wanna do it by your onw dont wanna ask nobody and look like a dork to a 15 year old on the pharmacy, you can also try one of the kodaks machines but way i have never use so i dont know how far you can go handeling the card on format and other issues


ill sallow my pride and ask the ppl on the photo develope section or your local pharmacy :P

I'm suprised ntfs works on your n-gage, but if it isn't recognised on your comp I guess you should copy your important files onto your phone then do a format with your phone from tools|memory.

I formated it with the n-gage but without result!!

I also formated it with an 6600 but the same.

Holy shit! Format it with a digital camera, that might work. If it doesn't try the memory card readers in the above posts. If you still get no results, it might be corrupt-in which case you should ask the seller to take a look.
