    has the card got to be formated before use. If you go into settings and storeage, does it show your card as something that can be used, you need to scroll down, that will tell you if the phone has mounted the memory

    Do the following,

    Menu > Settings > Storage > Unmount SD card > Erase SD card.

    This should allow you to access the SD card freely, however just remember if you wish to view the handsets contents in a file structure you will need to download a File Manager such as Astro File Manager.

    my internets been down for a while hence why no reply, but thank you. i erased the memory, and it now allows me to put music on to it but, it now doesnt let me take / save pictures to it AT ALL and move any applications to it, and if it does let me move them on to it, it deletes the data after a random period of time. i hate this memory card. :mad: any ideas?

    to me, this would be indicative of a faulty memory card... wouldn't amazon change it back?
