2.0gb sandisk micro format prblem

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!!!

Re: 2.0gb sandisk micro format prblem

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.

What is the most capacity of Micro SD that suport of that cellphone!

The SDA announced the microSD format at CTIA Wireless 2005 on March 14, 2005, and approval of the final microSD specification was announced on July 13, 2005. At launch, the microSD format was available in capacities of 32, 64, and 128 MB. SanDisk introduced a 2 GB microSD card in July of 2006, initially priced at 99 USD. Since then, prices for flash memory devices have fallen dramatically. The same 2 GB card as of April 2009 can be found for as little as 12 USD at department stores, and as of May 2009 for as little as 6 USD at online electronics stores. At present date Jan 2010 a 16 GB micro SD card class 2 comes for about $40 and a 4 GB class 2 micro SD card comes for about $8.

Motorola V360 -Memory card slot error

Hai Dud,

Are you using Micro SD transflsh memory??
Format the Card on the PC using FAT, after that use a CARDREADER and put these folders on the card: MOBILE and in the mobile folder put audio, video, kjava, picture, temp! Shutdown your Motorola, remove the backcover and plug-in the card! After that Start Your Motorola and copy a file from the mobile's memory on the CARD! It should work!

Hope it Helped You,If so give an "High Five!" [;)]
