I have an HTC Sense with a Transcend 2GB Micro SD card. I wanted more space, so I purchased a Patriot 16GB Micro SD card, but the phone will not read it. Is there a limitation on the size of the Micro SD card? If not, what am I missing? Can anyone help?
I do not know if it's formatted. I have an adaptor to USB2.0 that came with it. I copied all of the my files to it with no issue, but phone doesn't recognize that it's there. If you advise on steps to take, I will follow.

Make sure you have a copy of your files on the computer.
Put the new card into your phone and go to settings look for SD Storage and then look for Erase SD card This will allow the phone to format the card and it should pic it up and recognize it to make sure things are going to work try to take a picture and see if it stores it to the card. If it does then you should be good to go
I've seen this a few times and the suggestion has worked for them

Asking simple questions can keep us from doing dumb things.
Moved this to the myTouch 4G forums. And as argedion said if you format the card in the phone (back it up first) then it should work properly for you...if it doesn't I would hazard to guess you got a faulty SD card.
