  1. I have a 256mb memory card for my phone (microSD). The thing is full of folders with random names and ludicrous sizes (from 200mb to 4 gb)
    I cant delete any of them, I cant format the card... I've tried a phone connect as well as a card reader... Any ideas?

    How is a 256 MB card full of folders larger than it's self?

    I had a similar problem with not being able to format a card I had.
    The system just decided to forget it and wouldn't load it upon insertion, so I finally put it into another computer and VIOLA! I reformatted it and it worked perfect from there on. i don't know if this will help you, but it couldn't hurt to try.

    That's precisely what bemused me... A 256 Mb card with files and folders that are multiple GB in size... I'll try that... Any chance the memory card is damaged?

    There's always that chance.

    But I'd try it in another computer as well. See what happens.
