    hi android forums,

    recently recieved htc hero as a christmas present, great phone btw. however, i have tried to use an 8gb sdhc card as a replacement for the bundles 2gb card and it wasnt recognised. it wouldnt let me format the card either. however, the card works fine in my previous phone, nokia n95. is there any solution to this problem? thanks :)

    It should work - I did exactly that the day I got my Hero i.e. transferred an 8GB microSDHC card from an N95 to the Hero.

    Try this:

    Unmount the shipped card (Menu-Settings-SD card)
    Remove card
    Insert new card
    Choose "Format" OR "Mount..." i.e. card must be unmounted to format.

    Huh? So what is displayed when you insert the card?

    Maybe the N95 formatted the card in a standard that the Hero doesn't recognize. Try reformatting it with your computer as FAT32.
