    Hi!

    I've got a problem with my SanDisk Memory Stick Duo magic gate 128mb memory card, for my Sony Ericsson S700i cellphone...
    (I'm not sure if this is off topic or not, but i'll still post it here, cuz you guys are the best help a man can get XD)

    It all began when i was dumb enough to remove the memory stick while my phone was turned on. The next time I tried to access the files on the memory stick through my cellphone, they were not there! I started the camera function and it said "memory stick not formatted". So now i can't use my memory stick anymore :( PLEASE HELP! :p

    Does it offer you the option to format it? Look thru the menu's. If not you may be able to also reformat it thru a computer.

    Well there is nothing on the cellphone such as "format memory stick" or anything ... but how do i reformat through a computer?
    Im also thinking about reseting my entire cellphone, but would that help?

    If you don't have a card reader on you computer, then the only way that it could be done is by connecting it with the phone and hopefully it appears as a removable drive in My Computer or Disk Management.

    And File Manager doesn't allow you to re-format it?

    On a side note these cards aren't that expensive.
