    Well, actually, i might have been to harsh.. Not everyone can be techo-literate.


    OP, try restarting the phone and/or reinserting the SD card.

    Well you did not give any specifics, so...

    Also, if you formated your entire memory without trying with the basics (restart, reinsert the card), you are indeed not very bright.

    If you fill your memory with videos, pictures, music and what not, and the same happens again, youre just gonna formatid again? Good luck

    I had tried the basics before i even posted here, Why dont you try being helpfull instead of being so pedantic and trying to be clever and putting people down! Its people like you that put people off using forums like this!

    1 you did not post about trying those things, thats why i wrote it, so you dont go rushing to format if it happens again

    2 i did try to help you, and you shot me down :(

    3 english is not my first language (nor second) so while i might be "sounding" smug, i'm actually not. I learned british english.

    Anyhow, enjoy your phone
