When I try to open my memory card using my PC it tells me that the disk in drive is not formatted and asks me if I want to format it now. My phone (a Samsung Galaxy GT-S5570) shows the same option. Please help me out! Thanks

    Dear All Galaxy mini users (Galaxy S 5570)...
    In order to open your mobile files by a PC, follow the following steps:
    1. connect the mobile phone to computer by the cable provided ;
    2. remove screen lock wall paper as usual ,
    3. from the upper side of the touch screen of the mobile open page of the GPS, bluetooth etc.
    4. you will see an option saying : "USB connected" select this to activate ,
    5. Follow the instrction prompted.
    6. Probably you need to repeat this connection twice before it will be activitated

      Your memory card has been locked by one of your devices.
      The only is to format the memory card to make it detectable..
      If you have any important stuff in d sd card, make sure you copy it before hand and then format the card because formatting will erase all its data..
      hope this helps.
      cheers!

    Actually your memory card is detectable, the problem is any device that you use to access the content asking you to format it. It happens when the memory card formatted using other platform which are not readable in other platform. I assume you want to use this card in your samsung phone, then if you don't have any concern about any data inside the memory card, just format it in your phone device, and access it through your phone plug in to your computer.

    if you format the card then you will loose all data on it. try the card on other windows and see if they all say the same.

    You should be able to format your smart card through your phones settings menu.

    If not, then put it into your pc and when asked choose yes to format it.
    Is it a new card?
