Re: Sony Ericsson Xperia Play: SD card not access

Hey dude, you need to check the memory card slot of this cell phone. See, sometimes we try to insert the different memory card onto this slot and this will creates some trouble. Whenever we insert the memory card onto the cell phone then we need to take care of that the memory card is correctly inserted onto this cell phone. Because it could be possibility that this may be creates some damage on this card slot. Si, if the memory card slot of the mobile is damaged then you need to replace that card slot.

I think you need to try the other memory card on this cell phone. Sometimes there is possibility that the memory card is corrupted or it could be damaged. Then you need to check that if the other card works on this cell phone then replace this micro SD memory card with the other memory card. It would be useful you to solve this kind of issue. You can recover the data presents in this card by using the data recovery software. For recovering the data from the memory card attach this card onto the PC. Then copy that data on the cell phone memory card.

Hey I think you need to format this micro SD memory card. So, if this memory card is not able to connect directly to the cell phone then connect it to the computer. Then use the different types of formatting command for format this memory card. It helps you to format the memory card. Then after done the memory card formatting you need to check whether this card is now able to connect onto the cell phone. If it connects then the trouble is to be solved.

I suggested you that firstly check that this memory card is to be connect with the other similar kind of cell phone or not. If it works on the other cell phone then you need to check the internal memory of the cell phone. Then you need to scan the internal memory of the cell phone by using the authorized antivirus. It helps you to found the virus presents in the cell phone. After scanning the internal memory of the cell phone then there is possibility that the memory card issue is solved and then it able to connects onto the cell phone.

re: Micro SD card does not work in Sony Ericsson Xperia Play

I am having the same issue and i work with phones everyday. I have tried to update the software and tried another sd card, but it is not mounting either.

Once it is installed and starts to verify the card, then gives the message "sd card safe to remove".

If I go to the storage field under settings, it says that the card is unavailable.

If I mount the card, it shows available space for approximately 30 seconds, then kicks off the mount and shows unavailable. Any ideas?

Its surely a hardware problem with your device. As you said it gives "sd card safe to remove" message, it is the sign of any loose or hardware issues. Well, what i can suggest at this is take the device in the service center or any local mobile shop (If out of warranty) and get it repaired.
