Why doesn’t my computer detect my MicroSD card?

karan singh December 8, 2011

I can’t access my Micro SD card? It says “Error: Please insert disk in to drive.” The disk is in the drive!

    My card reader in laptop detects other memory card but not this specific one. I checked its not broken. I was using it in my nokia phone and suddenly one day said memory card not found. Now I am trying to use it in my laptop but still it doesn't detects it.
    Is my card gone corrupt??? Or any other solution??

      right click on computer and choose manage then under Disk management see if your memory card is shown and if yes double click on it; Or right click and choose change Drive letter and path.

      The fact that it's not showing up properly on either the phone or the laptop suggests it is corrupt. You may be able to reformat it - try doing so on the phone first.

        It is not detected by the phone.

          In that case, I'm afraid all I can suggest is what ha14 suggests above, disk management or a third party utility.

    the reader may be is corrupted, is it external reader or you are inserting directly to the pc/laptop?

        depends on how its broken:faulty, here is a discussion
        it is up to you to decide, since it can void the warranty

        or try to uninstall the driver, reboot, download a new copy from the manufacturer site install and reboot.

        before going through steps try another micro sd card and see if the message repeats.

    Perhaps you're cliking on the wrong drive. Or your card is broken. Have you tried in another PC? Or a camera, maybe?
