    Can I regain use of my SD card?


    I have a 64 GB SD Card which is about 50% free. It has been used as an additional backup for files, no longer required. I want to use it in my new Android MiNote 7 phone, to replace a 1 GB card which will soon be full. But I am now unable to either delete the Windows files, or to format the card. I have tried many times, using my PC and an Android Tablet. I have tried both quick and full format. Some apps seem to go through the delete and format procedures and report 'done' but the files are still in place (especially annoying in the case of a full format).

    The phone can read and open files (not much use) but in addition to not being able to delete them they cannot be moved or cut and pasted. Is there any way I might be able to format the card, other than the usual procedures in Windows or Android? It would be wasteful to just bin a card with 64 GB.

    :)
     
  2. SD card failure

    Hi Andrew,

    I would need to ask few questions so I can isolate your concern properly. Kindly answer the following:

    • Did you get a specific error message?
    • What are the troubleshooting steps you have done so far?
    • What's the current build of your computer? Press Windows key + R and then type winver.
    • Did you try to run a full system scan using your anti-virus? Can you tell us the result?
    • Does your SD card has a write protection?

    Meanwhile, you may try these troubleshooting steps:

    Step 1: Run the Hardware and Devices troubleshooter. Open Settings> Update & Security> Troubleshoot> Hardware and Devices> Run the troubleshooter.

    Step 2: Check SD Card in Disk Management.

    1. Open Disk Management.
    2. Your SD card will appear as a removable disk.
    3. Check if it has a drive letter.
    4. If it does not show anything, right click the SD card and then select “Change Drive Letter and Paths”.
    5. Click “Add” and select a drive letter, then click “OK”.

    Step 3: Update SD card driver.

    1. Open Device manager.
    2. Find your SD card and right click it.
    3. Select Properties.
    4. Click the driver tab and then select Update Driver.

    Note: You may need to use a keyboard and mouse to connect to your laptop to perform the said steps if it does not allow on tablet mode.
     
  3. Can I regain use of my SD card?

    SD CARD

    All appps are installed in phone memory. There is no way around this. You can install a game FROM the SD card but it is then installed in the device's main memory.



    STEP 1: Copy all the .xap files which you want to install in your Windows 8 phone to your SD card.

    STEP 2: Now go to Start -> Store -> SD card and wait for few minutes for all the .xap files to be loaded.

    STEP 3: Select the app which you want to install -> Select Install option.

    STEP 4: If your apps are compatible then you can see them in the Compatible apps list if not it will be shown in the Incompatible apps list.

    STEP 5: Once you have successfully installed the apps, you can see those apps listed in the Apps list from start.
