    Everytime I plug in my card reader I get this error.

    [​IMG]

    This means I can't transfer any data to my card.Data transfer from card to PC takes place properly though.I can't even format the card using card reader because of it.I use Nokia 6630 and 1 gb card.

    Does someone know of a solution.??:confused: .This problem is driving me nuts.:mad: .

    mmc doesnt have write protection, afaik. it might be password protected using some app or password protection. if you can find a camera which supports mmc & format it or use a card reader which formats protected cards. can u format it in the phone? also remove the card properly from the phone after it closes all the apps and displays that you can remove the card.

    The MMC is not password protected.I formatted it a dozen times already from my fone.But just after formatting if I put the card back in,it comes up with the same error.

    Do one thing.
    Go to My Computer.Right click on your memory card.Navigate to Properties>Hardware.Select your Memory card from the list.Click on Properties>Policies>Optimize for Quick Removal..Save the settings.It worked for me.;-)
