    My LG GT540 will not accept new memory cards. If I use a 2 GB card the phone says "Unaccessible":mad: (in danish though).

    If I insert a new 8 GB card I have to format the card for the telephone to see the card but the card still can't be used. For instance if I download app to my phone the phone can't use the card but only the tiny memory in the phone.

    What am I doing wrong?

    Thanx for any advice ;-)

    What version of android do you use ? if you have prior to 2.2 you can't install applications to sd (you can use link2sd however).
    You can still store music, videos, maps etc....

    I have version 1.6. I have great problems upgrading to 2.1 since I don't have the SD-card that came with the phone. I bought the phone second hand :)

    Is it even possible to upgrade the GT540 to version 2.2?

    What is "link2sd"?

    Link2Sd is an app that you use to copy to apps to sd card, you have to partition your sd card and link2sd essentially moves your files over to the sd card but creates a "link" so your phone still thinks it's installed on internal memory, just the link has virtually no size :)

    Do you need a rooted phone for this?

    Put the SD card in your PC/laptop (connecting the phone using a usb cable will work as well) then go to start and type Disk management, the click "create and format disk partitions" go to your SD card right click a partition and select delete partition, do this with all partitions the you will have a block of unallocated space, then right click the unallocated space and click create partition and format it with FAT32 (you may get a few blocks of space, in which you will have to merge multiple partitions)

    If disk managment doesnt work you may need a third party disk managment software, just google for some and read reviews to make sure its legit, I'm pretty sure windows disk managment will not find ext partitions.

    Also on your phone there is an option to fomat the SD card, however I dont think that will re-partition it as well.
