    I got a 32gb Sandisk microSD card for my Atrix. The phone recognizes that it has been inserted, and I get an SD card icon with a star on the corner at the top of the screen. I have a notification "Preparing SD Card, checking for errors".

    This notification and the icon never go away. In "SD card & phone storage settings", it seems that the SD card is not recognized at all. What's wrong? Thanks for the help.

    Im guessing you got the card off ebay? If so, it's probably a fake card.
