A memory card is a storage device that allows you to store music, videos, documents and more to upload to a computer. LG phones come with a limited memory; therefore using an external MicroSD card allows you save more information. Before using your MicroSD card with your phone, you have to format it so that your phone is able to read it. This simple process takes merely minutes to complete.
Things You'll Need
- LG phone
- Micro SD memory card
- Card reader (if needed)
- USB cable
Insert the Micro SD memory card in the memory card slot on your computer. If your computer does not have a memory card slot, connect a card reader to the computer using a USB cable. Insert the memory card into the card reader. Your computer automatically recognizes the phone.
Click the Windows "Start" button and click "My Computer." You should see your phone's icon listed as a portable hard drive.
Right-click your phone and click "Format." Click "Start" to format the memory card.
Remove the memory card and insert it into your LG phone. Select "Settings" on your phone and select "Reset Settings."
Select "Master Clear" followed by "Memory card."
Select "Format external memory using Mass Storage." When the formatting process completes, you can use your memory card with your phone.
