Question about Motorola Mobility V360 Cellular Phone
G'day iv just bought a 2.0gb sandisk card for my motorola V360 to upgrade from my 128mb(which works) I placed the card into the phone and nothing happend i went into storage devices to find out why, and recieved this message ''Card - Unformated'' i then tried formating it and i recieved ''Format failed'' ahhhhhhhh im pulling my hair out because I bought the card through a company that states the phone supports it and checked else where and other companies state the same. I then inserted the card through a card reader into my computer only to find that it works and my phone is in excellent condition. I would really like a solution, anything please!!!
I do believe the only solution is blackmagic

About the only work-around to this problem that I've been able to figure out (other than just buying a smaller microSD card) is to partition you SD card (on your computer, like). This is because the V360 can't handle the bigger cards, the software wasn't written with these size cards in mind; In other words, the Motorola specs are lying.
You need to create 2 partitions, one about 1024MBmb (or 512MB if your card doens't like teh first one), the other the remainder on the card. You then need to null/delete one of them, thus leaving only 1 partition of 1GB. You'll want to make sure the file system is FAT32, with the Allocation Unit Size at 'default'.
This in effect, turns your 2GB card into a 1GB or 521MB card, and should let your phone read it properly.
Unfortunately, this is much easier to do in a Mac or Linux system, as Windows won't go in and do that sort of playing while it detects the card as a 'removable device'- though the dectection as removable media can also be changed with the appropriate app.
