Fixing Galaxy Y Error: Memory Card Removed Unexpectedly

The Samsung Galaxy Y is one of the least expensive smart phones available in the market today. If you’re already an owner of a Samsung Galaxy Y, you’ve probably already experienced the occasional error message saying “Memory Card Removed Unexpectedly” or the “Removed Unexpectedly Error”. Don’t immediately have a technician open your phone to look at the memory card slot, and don’t buy a new memory card to replace the one you have either. You are not the only one who’s experiencing the “Removed Unexpectedly Error”. All owners of Samsung Galaxy Y units are experiencing this error.

Why is the Removed Unexpectedly Error appearing?

Apparently, the Removed Unexpectedly Error is caused by a mismatch regarding the upgrade of the operating system Android 2.3.6. Now before you decide to forget your Samsung Galaxy Y and buy a new phone, be informed that there is a solution to this error. If you’ve seen the solution that tells you to format your memory card’s FAT 32, it will work but only for a few days. And that doesn’t really help much, does it?

How do you fix the Removed Unexpectedly Error?

Now you don’t need to have great levels of technical knowledge for you to proceed with the solution. The solution for the Removed Unexpectedly Error is relatively simple. All you have to do is update, again? Yes, again. It turns out that the problem occurred when a person upgrades firmware from 2.3.5 to 2.3.6 DDKJ2. What you have to do is to upgrade from 2.3.6 DDKJ2 to 2.3.6 DDKL1. If you’re not familiar on how to do that, all you have to do is to go to Settings from the Menu. In Settings, look for About Phone and then Software Update.

This step requires you to connect to the Internet so it would be a good idea for you to connect to a Wi-Fi hotspot first before beginning the procedure. If you’re not connected to a Wi-Fi hotspot, there will be an option for you to set up your Wi-Fi settings first. If you can’t connect to Wi-Fi, you will be asked if you’d still like to proceed. This time, you will download the update via Mobile 3G Internet. Be informed that data charges will apply. After the update has been downloaded, you will then be asked if you want to install this update. After you install it, the phone will restart. Wait for a while and you’re done!

What if your phone keeps restarting?

Don’t panic. It’s not broken; the phone will restart after every installation of the downloaded patch. It’s natural and actually depends on how late or updated your current patch is.
