    Hi I have just bought a new 32GB micro sd card for my xperia mini pro.
    I can put up to 3GB on it but anything higher than that and it dont show on the phone, if I plug it back in to the laptop all the songs are in a LOST file.
    What I want to know is it my phone or my new sd card

    Welcome to AF, sorry you appear to be having issues.

    Where did you get the card, eBay per chance? I ask as there are a lot of fakes out there formatted in a way to look as though they are 32GB, but actually aren't.

    Download H2testw, run it and see if it gives any errors. If yes, I'd contact the vendor for a replacement/refund.

    try another card... If the other one works, it's the new one.

    The app won't fix it, it will just tell you whether or not it's corrupt.

    I suspect you'll be fine if you use another card. Sorry to say, but I think you were one of the unlucky ones. :(

    Never mind at least I know its the card and not the phone. Is there any way of fixing it?

    Unfortunately no, it's basically a 4GB Card, programmed to look like a 32GB one.

    If you complain to eBay, you'll be refunded.
