Question about LG CU500 Cellular Phone

LG CU500 not recognizing Micro SD card

My phone will not acknowledge it has a Micro SD card in it. I inserted a friends recently and saw the behavior I expected but it won't read the new card I just bought. The card came with an adapter so I put it in my camera and the card works fine but the phone doesn't see it. I suspect the contacts in the phone but they are very hard to see let alone clean. Any ideas as to the cause and/or resolution?

    My friend's card that did work is the same kind that I bought. (Kingston 1GB) I thought it would be safe.

    Thanks though, any other ideas?

    Yeah, I was planning on retesting using my friend's card and phone but I won't see him again until Monday at work and this is really frustrating me. lol

    Thanks though!

    I just found something which indicates this is a can of worms but sounds like it can help me resolve this matter. The problem is I don't have a Micro SD card reader. Oh well, I'll get this resolved. Check this out:

    I thought I should let everyone know. I got back with that friend and it turns out that his Micro SD card is a SanDisk. If you checked out the link in my previous post you'll see that that is the recommended brand and there is a ton of issues when using Kingston. That's ridiculous because Kingston is a huge name in memory. Oh well! Live and learn, I guess.

    FYI! I traded cards with that friend! Why would he not trade? He gets a brand new 1GB Kingston card in exchange for a used SanDisk and his phone works perfectly with either brand. Now my phone recognizes the card as soon as it is turned on and is recognized just like a flash drive when connected to the computer. PROBLEM SOLVED!

    So, the LG CU500 has problems working with the Kingston brand. They must be aware of this by now and I'm sure they are working on it. Oh well! I'm all set now!

Hi! whenever I plug my phone into my computer, the phone and computer won't react. In the phone, there's a SanDisk Micro SD card in it, and I would like to download music on my phone. Oh yeah btw, it's an LG CU500, too. And I don't know what to do. Help!

Put your new card in your friend's phone to see what happens. See if he can get it going in HIS phone. And check his card in your phone, AGAIN, just to be sure. I looked over the manual but nothing special was required for memory card recognition, especially if your new card is exactly the same as your friends. ZT3000 Beta tester of "0"s and "1's"

Micro SD Slot in My LG Rumor 2 isn't reading Micro SD Card

hello,kindly check if it is inserted properly,you will see a directive arrow on the memory card to show you how it is to be inserted,if after you have inserted it correctly and it still does not sees it,i would suggest you suspect your memory card is corrupt if their is any message displaying on your mobile phone screen,and if it does not show any message like memory card corrupted,then you will have to visit a mobile phone repair expert to help you change the memory card slot,after this your mobile phone will now read your memory card.

kindly rate this solution if it's helpful,

take care.

kk to add music make sure you syn the phone and the cp do the data and all then put .mp3 on all the media files and see if it works. Then if that doesnt go to computor format the card and then put it in the phone. Otherwise you need new stuff.

Computer is not reading my Micro SD, but phone is reading..

What size is the SD card in GBs? If it is larger than 2GB (4 or 8) do you have a SDHC card reader?
Also try formating the card first in the phone and then using it. Using it straight out of the package, while able to be written, my have difficultly with other devices reading the data.
