    Hi,

    I was just wondering if anyone could help me with the following problem I am having with my 8GB Memory Card i recently purchased for my G1.

    The built-in memory card reader on my computer does not recognise the card when I insert it, so I attached it via USB whilst still in the phone. The computer then recognised it until I began transferring items to it. When it just stopped working and even made the phone unresponsive.

    Have I just bought a dodgy memory card?

    Thanks for any help you can provide. :)

    Could be an iffy card ... what make ?

    Also reformat the to FAT32 ... if having problems do that in you PC try to use someone else's and a different read/write adapter ....

    I have found SanDisk cards to very reliable ...

    I don't even think it has a make, its just plain black with no writing on it.

    Can you use the phone to format it to FAT32?

    You should be able to... just mount with the cable to PC and use the PC's formatting utility ..
