    Did anyone put a memory card in thier Atrix ? If so how big is it and do you have to do anything else to the phone or does the phone set it up for you? I've had the Iphone for so long and the memory was already in it. I ordered 32 gb and was just wandering if I had to do anything else but put it in the phone. I heard of mounted and unmounted But I just want to put videos and music on it....Thanks

    I've got a 32GB MicroSD in my Atrix. It works great. You don't have to do anything to it. Just plug it in and Android will mount it automatically.

    One heads up, though. The internal 16GB comes up as sdcard in the Atrix. Your external card will be mounted as sdcard-ext. A lot of programs don't look for an sdcard-ext and will default saving stuff to the internal "card". You may have to navigate to /mnt/sdcard-ext to set it in particular programs.

    I have a 16GB SD Card that I transferred from my Backflip to my Atrix. I had no problem once it was placed in the phone. Everything that I saved on it, the Atrix can access.

    I picked up an 8 GB memory card at the time I got the Atrix. It installed fine and the phone has no problems recognizing or using it. That is a purely temporary "fix" though, as I plan on getting a 32 GB card, as soon as I have the extra money.

    Just slapped a 32gb micro I bought from a store in Japan called Yamada Denki. It ws about 12,000 yen. It's a Sandisk and its working perfect so far. 29.17 GB's available after I formatted it.

    One note though - as was previously pointed out in this thread - you can't load apps on the external SD card. But you can load photos, movies, etc.

    Good luck!

    doesn't the "move to media area" do that for you?

    On most phones that would be true. But on the Atrix, the media area is the internal SD (the 16gb that comes with the phone).

    I hope this helps!

    Hi I put a 32gb card in my phone (the cheapest I could find) I've tried to load mpg4 files on to it, after about 13 files the rest of the files are unreadable. I've tried reformatting the card loading different mpg4 files and got the same result. The first 13 files work fine.

    Hi Roze-

    The one I bought is fast and large (lexar 32GB class 10). It cost well under $100.

    I hope this helps
