Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have an 8Gig SD card on which everything suddenly turned to giberish! It isn't even normal letters in giberish order, there are weird symbols and dashes, etc. Any idea how to fix? I haven't tried to format, there are good video files on there and if I can possibly salvage, that would be great. Tony

    When you click on the files, are you seeing this giberish? Or is it the names of the files in the folders?

Try using a data recovery software like Recuva. Thats what I had to do when this happened to my memory card. You can also try something like Photorec if Recuva doesn't work. Photorec will take longer but will work if Recuva doesn't work.

I purchased a 8gig sd card and tried to put it in


The camera only supports SD memory (limit 2GB), not SDHC (4GB and more). The manual claims up to 1GB guaranteed, though the camera recognizes my 2GB card card.

Sandisk 8gig micro sdhc card


It is most likely because your card is a SDHC (NEW ) and your reader is just a SD.

IPAQ 6515 doesn't recognize new HP 8Gig SD card when inserted. I reset but nothing happened. Any idea what the problem might be.


I am sorry?

You want me to give you my solution for nothing and want to charge me $9.95 for it.

I could not find any posted solutions when I checked your site.

Samsung 226bw weird display problems


At first you should clarify if your GPU or LCD is broken.
Do You have any chance to try another monitor with your Graphicadapter or to try your monitor on a different PC?
Moreover you should try it with a new cable.

The symptom of weird symbols sounds most likely like a overheated or wrong-plugged Graphicadapter

My memory stick wont work


No, a USB adapter is not what he needs.

This happened to me before, something [like a song you downloaded] is corrupting the file. After a while of trying to make it work, everything will turn into giberish. What you have to do is reset the SD card. Put it in your computer, and delete everything.

Put it back on your phone, it'll work since your SD card at this point is nothing . PRess Menu, and then go to settings and tools.Go to Memory. Then card memory. Then press options and then FORMAT. Voila. Everything is erased but your card works now.
