Memory Card Reader Replacement & Repair
Memory Card Repair Problems
If you are having trouble with the memory card in your device, we can help. A failing memory card can cause slow or choppy downloads, loss of functionality, errors when loading, or strange noises when trying to save items to the card. You should first try to troubleshoot the problem to see if there is a simple solution.
Troubleshooting Memory Card Repair Problems
If the memory card reader is in your PC, the capacity of the card might be too high for it to read. If you are trying a 16 GB memory card, test the reader with a lower-capacity card, such as 2 GB. Your PC might also require a driver update. Check the website of your PC manufacturer to see if there is an update available. Some PC manufacturers offer a diagnostic tool for your memory card reader as well.
Test the memory card in another device to make sure that it is the reader that is not working. If the memory card does not work in any device, it could be a damaged or corrupted card. Make sure that the memory card is not locked. SD memory cards have a lock the left side that you must slide up to unlock.
