I recently purchased a samsung gravity from t mobile. it includes an mp3 player so i figured id buy an 8g micro sd card for only 20 bucks. i got home put the card into my gravity and formated it. i then took the micro sd card and put it in a microSD Adapter and put it into my laptop. it found a new device but when i go to it and try to put music into it it only reads 104kb of memory. im confused on this and am wondering how to solve this problem
Re: my 8g micro SD card only finds 104kb of memory
I had the exact same problem. I even tried formatting the card in Windows to get the 8g back and copying back over the folders that were created when it was formatted on the phone. That did not work in the phone and it wanted to format again which kicked it back down to 100k.
I called Samsung and they said the MAX card was 4g MicroSD or SDHC. I couldn't find anywhere in the manuals showing a Max capacity. I ordered a 4g card, but didn't receive it yet. I am a little worried that it won't work either, based on some things I am reading about the memory slots on other Samsung phones.

Hi,when you purchase a new micro SD card before use, youwill need to format the memory card so that you will be able to know the actual size of the Micro SD card by checking the details after formatting it.
After formatting the micro SD card and checking the details, if you still do not see the accurate size which is about 1.88mb or the about, that means the micro SD card you bought needs to be replaced. Not a good one.
your samsung Gravity 2 wont read the HC format, there is not much you can do sorry. the SD HC is a newer format for devices in the last year or so. Older devices will not accept the HC format cards. I did the same thing! And im in the business, easy mistake. Keep it around though you'll use it soon, just not in your Samsung.
i recently got the samsung gravity as well and had a 4gb card for it and got the same problem.... from what i have found its not the size of the card its that the phone does not support the (HC - high capicity) micro sd card. I went down and bought a regular 2gb microsd card and popped it in and it works fine. also all you have to do to put music on the card is drag(from your pc) and drop into the music folder(on the sd card). hope this helps. have a great day!!
Just try formatting the SD card. Hope it works fine.
Just connect the micro SD with computer.(You need SD adapter, SD card reader, and USB connection) Most computer will recognise the SD card automatically. Format the micro SD in the Window Explorer(or My Computer). Format menu can be found if you click right-button with cursor on the drive letter. After formatting, re-insert micro SD into your D900. Some Korean experts says the problem might be caused by different file system (e.g. FAT, FAT32, etc) in each memory card. So they recommended not to share your memory card with different mobile phones as well as any electric devices (eg. MP3 player and digital camera).
In my experience, every mp3 player/photo frame/etc with a card reader has a MAXIMUM memory limit for the type of card that it can read. It is possible that the Sansa player can only read 2GB Micro SD cards or smaller - and thisi nformation may not have been available when they printed the manual. If you have followed all instructions, and it still will not read the card, try switching to a 2GB Micro SD card.
According to what I've read, you can double the original memory, but no more than that, so the max you can have on a Sansa e250 would be 4 GB (2GB internal memory and 2GB external memory). I also read that the micro SD cards holds
music only-no video.
If your music files are in a folder you cannot add them to play list, but if you have all your songs singly you can add them to your playlist, I had the same problem tonight with this phone, we added them individually no problem, this has worked but is a lenthly prosses, so far so good, not had a play about with them other than this, still to get them back as an album not yet done, Jackie
