    i have the same problem. It (micro sd) inserts into the phone just fine with the gold bits facing up. then i turn the phone on and chack the external memory and a warning comes up telling me to insert external memory. Is it supposed to go in with the gold bits down?? it doesnt really go in smoothly at all if the gold bits are down.

First of all, remove the back cover. The Micro SD slot is located underneath the SIM card slot. Hold the SD card with the metal connectors facing you and slide the card into the slot, metal connectors first, until it clicks in place. A logo of an SD card should then appear on the top of the screen.
Then to remove it, push it in and it will click and then pop back out

I can Confirm that the NZ version, which as far as im aware is only different to the us ones because it has a scroller instead of a multi dirrectional thingy on the front....IS ONLY COMPATIBLE WITH MicroSD cards, and not MicroSDHC.

For some reason the SDHC cards dont get read by the phone. And yes, the correct way to insert the card is with the gold bits facing towards you.

I checked this all with a Vodafone NZ saleperson in a store. We actually took his MicroSD card out of his Nokia and it worked perfectly. While my MicroSDHC want readable in his Nokia.

Hope this helps....

Now i have to find a buyer for a 4g SDHC

For telus phones you have to take the back off, and then take out the battery and insert the micro sd card downwards

Posted on May 18, 2008

As from what I have read, the slot may be in either of two places, depending on the model of the Shine. Mine (AT&T) has a slot on the side, whereas others might have ones behind the back cover (under the SIM card apparently). For those with ones with slots on the side (with the little rubber microsd cover), if you're having a problem and think the cover is faulty, you're not pushing the card far down enough. It really needs to be pushed down farther than your finger can go, it's not broken (as I thought at first).

The microSD slot is on the side. You have to use a thin flat screw driver or something small like that in order to push the card in enough to catch. If you push it again, it will pop out.

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.

It doesnt work when i insert the card with my micro memory card and asks for a disk

Hi likkle_miss_,

The Micro adapter has no memory in it. It is just an adapter to use so you can plug your Micro SD memory card into a larger (SD) slot. The SD Micro memory card needs to be inserted into the adapter.

I cant load music to my lg shine from my computer.. HELP!!!!!!

The LG Shine is a nice phone, but it is very disappointing with the USB cable.
You may expect the cable would connect the phone to your PC for Calendar Sync, music, videos etc.
Obviously, this will not work.
It will only allow you to hook your LG Shine to your PC to copy music and video files ONLY if you have a Micro SD card in the phone inserted.
After you have copied the files to the Micro SD card from your PC, you can copy them to the phone memory.

There are nice websites with free management programs for also the LG phone, but the Shine is unfortunately NOT listed (yet).

I just bought an LG shine but i don't know how to put my music on it.

You can only do that by using an additional Micro SD memory card that contains the music.
Once inserted in the LG Shine, you can play it from the memory card or copy/move it to the phone.

Lg shine - downloading music from my laptop

If you want to put music files from your laptop onto your LG Shine, you can either use a LG USB cable or a Micro SD Card.The Micro SD card will probably need an additional adapter to have it big enough for your Laptop or PC slot. Once the music files are on the Micro SD card, insert the card into your LG Shine and go to My Stuff". Then, select "Audio and ringtones" and select the file on your memory card. Press the "Options" button and select the copy function and paste it into your phone.
