Question about LG VX8300 Cellular Phone

Lg phone stopped reading SD card

So I made a phone call, and when I hung up, my phone's wallpaper had reset to default. All my pictures and songs were gone. (they were saved on the sd card) Now the phone won't read the card. Is there anything I can do, reset the phone or something, to make it start reading the card again?

Hi Archie Bald,

I know it's been 2 years, so I'm posting this for anyone with an LG.
Unfortunately, this is an ongoing problem with several of their models. To boot, cell phones in general seem to be produced today with a minimum of QC; models change so quickly, they really don't care about refining any one model. To make matters worse, I've owned several other LG products, 2 of which died on days 32 and 33 - after the return policy. Today none of my LG products work - indeed the longest lasting product got just over a year. While my experience may be bad luck, it's hard to call it that when it spans several of their products; indeed, some family members have had similar results. My current EnvTouch is my 5th swap-out. The longest lasting one was 34 days. Most people would say that at least the refurbs should be better... Not so for me, as 3 of them were refurbs. Touchscreen problems, sd card reader did what yours did, and the battery won't hold a charge overnight, and some genius engineer thought a quick-lock key combo wouldn't be necessary - so now it calls people in my case all by itself. IDIOTS. The p.o.s. is 6 months old.

Bottom line: RUN, don't walk - away from LG, forever and always... and remember that FTC Consumer Sentinel is your friend - file a complaint.

Remove your memory card, if it stops freezing, the card's your problem. Either the card is not compatible (more than 4gb or SDHC instead of SD), or the phone is referring to the card during normal operations eg wallpaper, ringtones etc. Copy these "operational" files to the phone and only use the card for storage of pictures, music etc, but not for anything the phone uses regularly. If the problem persists after you've taken the card out, sorry can't help...

LG Neon shows MicroSD card but doesnt read it


You must move the music files to the appropriate folder on your micro card. put the card back in your laptop and move all the music to the "sounds" file. Your phone is not set up to read the entire card, just the folder associated with the application being used. If this doesn't work out, then copy the entire card to your desktop and format the card while inside your phone from your phones menu. Now insert the card and select, open to view files. you can now locate the appropriate file and paste the songs you would like to have on your mobile device.



Good Luck And

I cant put music on my sd micro card


hi samm,

when a memory card is formatted through a phone, it will create folders where the media will be stored. this folder is not created by default or is not the same when you format it through a player.

to resolve your issue. have the cards reformatted using your phone. then put it to your computer. once this is done, you should be able to see folders where you can put specific medias to, like songs, pictures and movies. once you have it, just drag and drop the songs you want to copy then you will have access to those files on your phone to.

regards,

Brandon,

1st - Place the SD card in the phone. 2nd - Adjust the setting to save Pictures, Video, Music to the SD card by going to Settings and tools > Memory > Save Options. 3rd.

Now on the PC you will see the phone has created folders for you "Music". 4th - Drag your music files into the correct folders (ie music, pictures, etc). 5th Place SD card back in LG Envy 2 and enjoy the music.

LG Chocolate 3 won't read my Micro SD card full of MP3s!


Ok, I figured it out. Well, ok, maybe I didn't figure it out, but I did solve the problem -- by making sure everything on the SD card was backed up, and then reformatting it. Then I put all my MP3's back into the "my_music" folder on the card, and it all showed up on the phone -- finally!
