Default Can't find/recognize my SD-card (2GB)

I recently received a used E10i from a friend.
The phone works well, BUT it would not find/recognize my SD card (2GB).

(The SD-card is relatively new, and it works fine on my old Nokia 6086.)

Are grateful for any suggestions on how I can solve this.
Is it possible to manually mount the sd-card in any way?

Have you tried using a different SD card on your phone?

Yes, I was fortunate enough to test with my friend's SD card, and it seemed to work.
My friend's sd-card, was exactly the same model and brand as mine, but only 1 GB.

Is the card holder extra "sensitive" on this model (E10i)?
Because I've read that several others seem to have similar problems.

The card reader should cause a problem specific to one memory card and not another. However I do see this from time to time and more often than not it is either a fault memory card or a corrupt system file on the card itself. Unfortunately unless you can get the card into a card reader on a PC and format it then replacement of the card is the only real option.

Ok, I suspected this.
