The card formats into the OS on the phone and works fine but when I get into computer management it just shows H:/ no media. I have tried the windows fix for code 10 and 43 and driver updates, uninstalls, reinstalls of the usb spots in device manager w/o luck. I have two targus media card readers with sd and micro sd slots. windows recognizes card in with the sound both with sd and micro hookd to either reader. I use the adapter also on my laptop with a media card reader in it w/o luck either. I am trying to get it to detect so I can format it to work with my 3ds. Please message me or email email@example.com
I assumed you already read the Samsung Focus wiki
on the SD card topic.
Once you put the microsd, it becomes part of the OS and the card [format] becomes unreadable under OS/card readers. Removing it from the phone would result in phone data loss, the phone would ask for the card and not work anymore until you hard reset. So make sure you got all your media backed up before you do this.
Now, if you want the card removed from the phone and used somewhere else, it's kinda tough. Basically, if you search through the forum, you'd see that you need another device to unlock (re-format) the card:
- a Focus with a custom ROM (these have the card unlock utility installed)
- a Nokia symbian N or E series phone (N95, E7x etc) supporting microsd
- a camera (which may see the card and format it - not all brands may work)
You're a beginner, you just got your Samsung Focus and don't know what to do? Read this post
Before asking questions, please read the Samsung Focus wiki
and search the forums!
