Me! My 512mb MMC Card arrived today. I stuck it in the phone, checked the memory screen on the phone, it only read 80.2MB. I panicked a little and decided to format the card using the Nokia 6230. Formatted fine, but it still read 80.2mb.

I then went onto a web forum to find out what was wrong and learnt that although it reads 80.2MB it is, in fact 512MB and that I must NEVER format the card using the mobile! Aaaaarrrrrggggghhhhh! Why didn’t I check the forum first!!??

Anyway, all is not lost, you can buy USB MMC Cards for as little as £8, which can be used to format the card back to its original, working condition. I may also try formatting in my friend’s IPIX Portable Computer.

I feel stupid right now!

Finally, is it just me or is taking the back cover from off of a Nokia mobile phone really, really hard? If the phone wasn’t so expensive I would have taken a hammer and chisel to the damn thing!

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
