Hi,
On the left side of your SD card you have a micro switch on it and must be on the upper position. On the down position your SD card is write protected !

    I have fogoted this fact : in the picture behind your question is a mico SD card whith a reader or adapter.You must know if the adapter can operate in the two modes (READ/WRITE) or only READ.
    If you received an driver whith your adapter install it and perheaps it can operate in write mode otherwise only in READ mode.
    An other solution for you is to buy a card adapter whitch permit the to modes operations READ/WRITE ask it to your vendor before buy it.

Hi,

The problem might be that the card is password protected, i recommend you switch it to the unlocked position and then use a computer to format the memory card and do a full format not the quick format.

hope this helped.

I CAN`T PUT MUSIC IN IT


Make sure that the microSD card is formatted. You may reformat the memory card using your phone and then try saving some music.

If that will not do any help, try using another microSD card to see if the card is defective.

Have a great day!

Hello

If the Card Says MicroSDHC on it the phone itself does not support HC so you have to get a regular MicroSD card. I had the same problem and purchased a 2gb MicroSD card and it works fine in my samsung gravity.

It's probably just that you aren't using the correct folders, but...

First, make sure you phone TRUELY sees it as it should. Some phones don't properly handle SDHC cards. As long as it's a picture phone, put in the card(blank and formated) and take some pictures. If you have a data plan, download a tune or two (sprint has "free sample" mp3 download of the week).

Now, take the card out, and access it with the computer.
You should see a picture folder, and a media folder(names depend on the type of phone you have)

Specifically, the music folder is where you want to put your music files.
Also, depending on your phone(you didn't say what kind you had) you should begin trying by uploading 128Kbps mp3 files. Most modern phones should handle that format.

Now, return to the phone, and test it out with either your "mass storage manager" app, or your media player app.

MICROSD DONT WORK


Your computers SD card reader is more than likely too old. My computer is only a year old and was told it wouldn't work. I called PNY and they told me that I needed to buy either a 1GB or 2GB card or an SDHC external adapter. Of course it doesn't tell you this on the package, good luck!
