How to format a 32GB microSD card for Nexus One and Android


Tuesday 20th of April 2010 / androinica.com
Google has acknowledged that there is an issue with Android that can create problems when people attempt to format a 32GB card on their phone. Sure, the Nexus One and many Android phones say they support up to 32GB cards, but the catch is that you have to first format the card on your computer; Android can’t do it directly from the phone. A fix for this issue will come with the next OTA update.I’ve always formatted my SD cards on my computer first and never really thought it was that big of a deal to not be able to do it on the phone. To be fair, I always have a microSD reader handy, so maybe other folks aren’t as lucky. If you’re able to load a microSD card on a Windows PC, here’s how to format the SD card.Place the microSD card into your adapter or USB reader. Then put the adapter/reader into your computer’s SDcard/USB slotWait until the AutoPlay notification pops up. Make note of the drive letter, which looks like this (the part that says “Sony Ericsson PC Software (D:)” :Close the AutoPlay window and then go to My Computer (or Computer

How to sort and load music?


Friday 12th of August 2011 / androidforums.com
Ok I have alot of songs I have had for years and want to be able to listen to them. On my old Nokia express music phone it was easy to plug it in transfer a song add it to a playlist and was done. On teh android it seems different, I have my music or sd card from the old phone in the new one, but when scrolling through them it has them arranged weird, some will be in sub folders others will be in places that shouldn't be or I have to do a search to find it all. I am wondering if I need to format the sd card with the android system as the old phone could have been different format. If so I do have some apps moved to the sd card would I lose that info and saved data from the games? I have not been able to find anything on how to organize music on teh android with a sd card. I would like to be to go to a catagory and scroll down to find a song or artist rather than spending hours having to search before I find it. I do know now its getting harder to get music and have waiting to do it the right way before using the P2P methods but have been scared off of those now. Been reading some of

How to Import eBooks From Computer to SD Card to Kobo Reader


Tuesday 11th of January 2011 / droidforums.net
Hello everyone! I recently searched the forums for a solution to my problem, but to no avail. I had seen that you could get the Kindle reader from Amazon on an Android phone and was very excited! I found out that you could also download many free books online to use with your Kindle! But I was dismayed when synchronization between my Kindle Reader for Mac and Kindle for Android didn't occur...leaving my Android Kindle Reader rather useless. Then I found Kobo! Kobo is Border's eReader, and so far I much prefer it. It has similar features to Kindle, but it shows you your books on a bookshelf-like UI, with a little green bookmark logo showing you which books you're already reading. I especially prefer Kobo because I couldn't figure out how to get books from my SD card into Kindle, but with Kobo, it's extremely easy!So anyway, here's how you do it...Step 1: Download an eBook in the ePub format. Kindle's format, .azw, doesn't work with Kobo as far as I can tell. If you already have books in the .azw format, it's not big deal! Download a program called Stanza(for Mac and Windows) and open

2.2 froyo - Android 2.2 - External SD card not working - says "Blank External SD card" -- Why?


Sunday 19th of December 2010 / android.stackexchange.com
OS: Android 2.2Device: Samsung Galaxy SAll of a sudden my external SD card has stopped working.Error Notification:> Blank External SD card> > SD card blank or has unsupported file system.The last thing I did before this was to record some video, which was set to record to the external card, and then plugged it into USB. I also installed USB drivers for the phone from Softpedia as Windows wasn't recognaising it by default. After installation the phone's memory showed up as a removable disk but the external card did not. Then after unplugging the device from the PC I had that error in the notification bar.How do I recover my SD card? Do I need to format and therefore stand to lose the data on it?

external sd - Android 2.1 - MyTouch 3G Slide - Preparing SD Card mal-function - Formatted SD Card after taking out and putting back in :(


Thursday 17th of March 2011 / android.stackexchange.com
Operating System: Android 2.2Device: HTC MyTouch 3G Slide SD Card: Micro SD 8GB Sandisk card that is less than 1 year old Background: This feature formatted my working SD Card w/ all my pictures on it after i took it out and put it back into the same phone. I didn't add or delete any data from the device when i took it out... I checked the sd card on the computer and it only had 2mb of cache files on it while before it had 6gb of music and photos. I already tried mounting and unmounting the card. That doesn't help. The phone has recently been factory restored. Questions: 1) Why is Android / MyTouch3G Slide formatting my sd card? 2) How do I know if it's an sd card problem or a phone problem? 3) How do I get the card to work w/ the pictures and mp3s on there? I'm thinking maybe I should prepare the card for android somehow- with a sd card formatter Update: I recovered the files w Easeus Data Recovery, put them back on the card, and it formatted the files again. I'm thinking I should format my card for android 2.2 or mytouch3g so it accepts the pictures or put the card in while the ph

How do I format the SD Card for my Android?


Thursday 02nd of January 2014 / forums.androidcentral.com
I tried to format it on my laptop via adapter, by right clicking SD Card F: going to format, selecting FAT32, checking the quick format box, and pressing start but whenever I place it back in my phone, it won't mount. It says it's damaged. I had the same problem when I first purchased the sd card but found a link online that showed me how to format it a different way,in another location, which worked perfectly. I recently removed the sd card for something though and encountered this same problem but am unable to find that same link. It's driving me nuts! I had to import everything to my laptop to make sure I didn't lose it all. Please help
