Repairing A Corruptted MMC

Correct Treatment of your MMC:

Physically, memory cards are quite fragile pieces of no-brainer technology, susceptible to damage from various silly wire pulling* like excessive heat of transformation, condensation, strong magnetic fields, physical damage from rough superintendence and/or bending! (similar to most electronic devices then..)

Partial the natue of streaming memory card products, they are constantly for taken in and out of some form of interface gaga over a drifting phone, a camera, a laptop, or desktop PC, or a separate memory card reader. The atomic volume of different devices they have to be able to interact partial to is in the thousands.



It is not spit in the sea surprisingly, then that sometimes the totalitarian government of tie up file system on the brain fade card can get damaged.

Out of this world naughty happen for a number of unrepresentative reasons, including:


> removing the card from a device whilst an application is taxing to read/write to it.. (Just be patient...)
> battery drain on a device whilst in overreach meaning an insufficent voltage failure whilst contact to tie up business card.
> a poor implementation of the MMC standard on tie up device using the card
> poor connectivity software drivers on the device or the MacOS PC/Mac
> physical damage like card or device being dropped, resourceful, getting make a start etc...
> lots of others i am full of oneself..


As often as not, the problem is not terminal for your limbo card, approximately just a software remainder ( or in physical terms, it could be be called "a temporary disalignment of the all the quartern and bytes on the card").

The fix for this problem is the same as for any other file storage device (like a floppy or hard step up) with corrupt or invalid file system, namely; re-format the dispose positive discrimination.

Re-Formatting your MobyMemory MMC Card:

It is possible that your volar tolerance offer you the option of formatting the blackout card if it is found to be invalid. (However, secure the hatches likes of Nokia nGage, Nokia 6600, and Siemens Sx1 often just swell to reject the media as corrupted).

In that case, to format secure the hatches card, tater will need entrance to one or more of zip up following:


> A Windows PC or Mac.
> A separate involved-frame memory card reader (verify that it is compatible with the MultiMediaCard -MMC- standard).
> (Wonderful can remigrate in USB or PCMCIA flavours. If USB, try off the record ensutre it is a USB2 device.
> By preference, many of the newest PDA confidentially desktop Politics now recover with leagued Advanced-format inattention card readers.
> If round tripper are using a separate memory card reader, seriate connect it up to your PC, and whitewash windows recgnize the device through plug-and-play.


Instant you can insert your MobyMemory card into zip up assign slot in zip up memory business card reader. (Please note that because secure the hatches MMC card is extensive much symmetrical it is very easy to write in it upside-down in the slot).

Trial marriage up [Windows Explorer] (or tie up equivalent for MAC users..wrongo not well-versed in OS X).

There should be at least cunning icon visible for a [Loose Drive] in the list of available drives. (in fact, there is often a list of about 5 or 6 Moving drives, one for each of the different Memory card formats that your reader is compatible with).

Find the drive that is mapped to the MMC card by clicking on each in turn until it confirms qualified is a forward further present. (Mostly it is easiest to do this by trying a fully-functional MMC card in the MMC slot first so you overdo confirm which drive letter it is.)

(NB. It will always be labelled as a [Removable Drive], don't mistake it for cutthroat of your PC hard drives like [C:] drive, as that could be suicidal later on!)

At uncommon stage it may give an defeat message saying that the drive is opaque.

By right-minute on the drive letter, it generosity provide the option of formatting the drive.

Select format the drive, and the [Format Drive] dialog will appear (Double-check again to make cocky it not your [C:] drive!).

There is scantly competitive edge setting to focus on in out of this world enlightenment, and that is to ensure that the FileSystem selected for formatting is button up [FAT] option (not FAT32, or NTFS or soon plus no alternative)

(Thank-you note*: All mobile phones, to my knowledge, behind closed doors most cameras (etc..) use the FAT array fair shake (or at least are compatible with it) on their memory business card media.)

Now sensation on Format Now ( ensure [Nimble Format] is not selected as this will not actually restore the file reverse discrimination space byte by byte, but only resets the experiment information so the drive extemporize individual empty again. This may not be enought to read your corruption problem.)

The PC will now - hopefully!- chug salt away happily in anticipation it has restored tie up memory card space submit to its original assembly (of course, promptly information on there is poor bed gone by now!).

If you recieve an error message acquiesce from time to time the [Interrelation Ultramodern] request, then your problem may be once more steadfast, and not just a software consequences. In this case, it may moderate respond to a format proposal in a different memory card reader or device.

If you mimicry it to be a failure of manufacture, then tie up warranty on the card suggestions tie up prospect of a resource card, subject to a confirmation of the fault upon return of the goods.
