Here is your solution: 
Now follow these steps to a "T" don't do any shortcuts etc, this is "across the board" for all sidekicks it worked on my Sidekick Slide and on my Sidekick 2008.

1. Remove battery and the SIM card from the devise.
2. Flip the sidekick open; press and hold the letter "r" on the keypad
3. While holding the letter "r", place the battery back in the device. DO NOT INSERT SIM CARD YET.
4. The Sidekick will restart itself twice. Please make sure not to let the letter "r" go until it has fully rebooted.
5. Once it has fully rebooted, remove the battery, reinstall the SIM card and battery.
6. Power up device.
7. Once the device has fully rebooted, all prior information should be erased from the device and it should be restored back to the default factory setting.

That means that you have bad memory slot in your lx.
So what you want to do is go in and get a new one.
Or get a replacment on it.

Yeah, I can help. On the sidekick 08 when placing the card make sure you place the card with the cut edge facing the battery. This phone work with the sim card facing the opposite way. Hope this help:)

Yea the same thing is going on with my sidekick LX right now. Try kicking up your sidekick, and clicking the jump button. go to settings and then systems info.

then proceed to hold down menu + shift + D (the letter)

it'll take u to the diags test selection. uncheck everything except SD Card Dectection. (just as a heads up remove the back cover of your phone and the memory card)

then click start tests. if it still says it cant read your memory card (like what mine did) then u need a new phone. u bought a defective one.

I can tell you that if you have pictures on them they have to be put into a specific folder to view on the phone. The easiest thing to do is format the card on your computer. After I did that the sidekick had no problems reading mine. If you ever add photos to the card from an outside source such as usb cable make sure you put the pictures in the exact same folder the sidekick camera puts them in.
