8GB Kingmax Micro SDHC could not be format

Asked By 950 points N/A Posted on -

I have a 8G kingmax microsdhc which I used for a week on my cell phone. I stored files and images in my mp3, then there came a time when I took off the microsd from the cell phone and placed it on the adapter and stuck it on my laptop.

I tried to open it but it won't follow the command. It says something about, not being formatted. So it asked me to format it. Even though I knew that I may lost all files, I followed the instruction to format it. I was surprised when something popped up and said that Windows cannot continue formatting the device. I tried using it on my cell phone but I can't access it anymore.

I tried several times but nothing happened. I also tried opening a file from the microSD but it won't respond. There was even a time that my computer froze. I know that I may use some software to recover the file, even if I reformat it. But the problem is, I can't access the drive.
 
Can anyone please help me? I have a very important file in it.

Solution 2: If you can’t format your micro SD card then follow the instruction:
 
  • Change your file system from NFTS from FAT32.
  • Then click on the "Format" not "Quick format".
  • After finishing format, eject your micro SD card by clicking "Safely Remove Hardware” and reboot your computer.
  • Then connect your micro SD card via an adapter. I hope it can solve your problem.
 
Solution 3:
 
  • Connect your micro SD card into another USB port.
  • Go to start menu.
  • Select control panel.
  • Go to the device manager.
  • Go to expand universal series Bus control submenu.
  • You can see all broken or corrupted device by yellow marking.
  • Right click on your Micro SD card and choose update option.
  • After updating install all up drivers for your MICRO SD card.
  • Disconnect your adapter and reboot the computer.
  • Reconnect adapter. Now you can open any file from your micro SD card.
 
Solution 4:
 
  • Right click on "My computer".
  • Click on the “manage”.
  • Go to the “disk management”.
  • Right click on your driver.
  • If partition is not available then you have to partition your Micro SD card in FAT16 or Fat32.
  • After partition, reboot your computer and reconnect your Adapter.
 
Solution 5: If you are using Windows XP then scan your SD card “Scan disk” program or if you use Windows 7 then scan your SD card by “Check disk” program. It detects all corrupted files and bad sectors of your SD card and fixes them.
 
Solution 6: If you are using Windows XP or Windows 7, then setup Windows Vista in your computer and try to format it. Remember that you have to change file type NFTS from Fat32. I hope you can format your SD card.
 
Solution 7: Sometimes it occurs from the adapter. You can use multiport adapter which supports 8 micro SD card and try to connect it into another USB port of your computer.
 
Solution 8: If you fail to format your card, then you can try it on your phone. I think it may work on your phone.
 
Solution 9: You can use “ErrorSafe” software which recovers all of your corrupted files and bad sectors. For you to recover your data after formatting you can use “iCare” data recovery software, which recovers all your lost data.
 
  • Download the “iCare software”.
  • Install it in your local disk C where your program files are presented.
  • Connect your micro SD card by adapter into your computer.
  • Click on the “Recovery” option.
 
You will get back all your data which you have lost.
 
Solution 10: If you can’t format or open your micro SD card, then your SD card is surely infected by a strong virus. You have to use a strong Antivirus or Firewall with a license key and full scan your computer. It removes all Trojan, Malware, Riskware, and Virus. Then you can format or open file from your micro SD card.

Scan your memory card for viruses. This kind of situation can occur due to viruses. Otherwise try to format your Micro SD card by using Command Prompt. Open your Command prompt window and type format x: (“x” must be your Micro SD device letter).
 
If it doesn’t work, your device has been damaged.

It seems your microSD card may have reached its EOL or end-of-life. Also, when you are using a microSD card, the best way to format it is to perform the formatting on a mobile phone instead of doing it on a computer because a microSD card is designed for use on mobile devices and not for computers though you can perfectly use it on PCs.

That problem with your microSD card is pretty common and it usually happens on microSD cards where a user frequently deletes and copies files like photos, videos, and others stuffs. When you encounter this error when formatting a microSD card, it means the media or the SD card may have reached its last write cycle. When this happens, you will no longer be able to format the SD card.

You can still recover the files it previously contains using any recovery tools but that’s the only thing you can do. You cannot fix the error because it is already permanent. Just purchase a new microSD card for your phone and transfer the photos in there. When you purchase and use a microSD card, its life depends on how you use it.

The more often you delete or move files to and from the SD card, the shorter its life will be. You decrease its life the first time you format it on your phone. Don’t worry, an SD card has hundreds of millions of write times and it will take very long before it reaches its very last write cycle.
