    Bought a new Samsung Galaxy 3 (Apollo).
    I used to use a Nokia Xpress Music with a 4G Micro SD (so I know it works)

    However, when I put the card into my new phone it doesn't recognize the memory card and they message "removed SD card: SD card has been removed. Insert a new one".

    I've tried formatting it to FAT32 and FAT but netiher are recognized by the Samsung Galaxy 3 :thinking:

    Have you tried a different memory card?
    It could be your memory card port. If it doesn't work with a different memory card and both those memory cards work in other machines, I'd return the phone.

    I tried someone else's micro sd and it works perfectly so I guess the port is not the problem. I'll continue trying different formats on my 4GB micro sd although the manual says it only supports FAT

    Also, I think it does scan the memory card I have but then it ejects it automatically

    Hmm, have you tried FAT32 vs FAT16?

    That's what I would do. If another one works in that slot then it might be the card. But you said it worked in another phone which is really weird. It may be in the process of dying, with a loose connection. Better not to use it in that case!
