Memory Card Corrupted Message

I have a 2gb memory card which has worked fine for several months, however I now get the message "memory card corrupted" whenever I try to access it using Tools > Memory Card. I have tried to format the card using the phone but I get the same error message and loading the card on my computer using a card reader just freezes my computer.

I had done a reset of the phone using *#7370# and was transfering files to the phone just before it happened.

Anyone have any suggestions on how I might get the use of my card back!?

Cheers,

Matt

You have donne all, from software side. So, maybe the card is corrupt Try another card, and see if the phone works fine.

I tried my original Nokia MMC and that works fine. I'm gutted if I need to buy a new 2gb card!

Would be very grateful to hear of any other suggestions.

Cheers,

Matt

surely if your card is less than 1 year old then you can return it a s faulty and get a replacement for free..

I bought the card from ebay. I guess its wortha shout asking for a replacement card but maybe less likely to have joy given that its not a big retailer. Not too sure what the make of the card is - theres no branding on the card - probably a dodgy one from Asia! Nevertheless its worked perfectly since June until now.

My firmware is the latest .42 version. Ive had the problems since I did a full reset (#7370) with the memory card still in. I didnt notice a problem until later I transferred some files onto it and half way through I got an error message and its been unusable ever since. I'm thinking its got something to do with the reset but I cant figure out a way to even wipe the card clean.

Any other ideas would be greatly received.

Cheers,

Matt

maybe u can search the net for mmc medic and try the software which force format on a corrupted card.

you may also try to format the card using a digital camera, mp3 player, or such a gadget of any sort. sometimes, it jus work that way.

CHeers!

Format via a PC

Have you attemtped to format the miniSD card using a PC? You may need a card reader to connect it to your PC.

nearly all cards you buy off ebay are fake and are not reliable, just because it worked ok for a few months doesnt mean its a good card, as you have fortunately found out.....I think also the chances of you getting a refund are slim, but worth a try.

with mem cards always buy branded from a reputable company...you get what you pay for I am afraid.

I had the same problem on N80 with one card of 2Gb! But that same card had worked well on N73 for several months... I check the firmware of N80, and there is 3.xx. Another problem, is card missing, when inside phone... I do a firmware upgrade for the last one, and all problems gonne. So a good advice for all, is put N80 on 4.0623.0.42.
