Might also be worth formatting it in the phone as opposed to the PC? What File System did you use to format? Fat32? NTFS? The former is your best option.
Thanks. I have formatted the card on a PC, Fat32. I have mounted and unmounted the card to no avail... I will try to format it on the telephone and see what happens. Do I need to use the 'erase the SD card' function or is there another one?

I am confused as to the nature of the problem though, as the phone seems to have created an emulated SD card, named it SDcard0 so when I subsequently inserted an SD card in the phone it gave it the name of SDcard1. I am a bit weary of attempting to delete the 'emulated' and/or the 'SDcard0' folders (I did try doing so using the Astro file explorer and after a couple of minutes of inactivity I gave up) just in case I mess things up.

I hope I will not have to live with this, although admittedly on second thought it is not the end of the world...
