SOURCE: My LG Chocolate VX8550 wont recognize micro sd card

Here are the steps I took:

  1. Insert the micro sd card with the metal plates facing you (that took me a second). Don't worry about the little push you have to give.
  2. Go to the Settings & Tools option in the Menu.
  3. Select *. Memory
  4. Selct 3. Card Memory
  5. Select Options while the bar is on "1. Memory Usage". The only option available to me was 1. Format and select that.
  6. It will ask for the phone lock code-if you have never set it IT IS THE LAST 4 DIGITS OF YOUR TELEPHONE NUMBER.
  7. The phone will format the card and put the file folders on it.
  8. Use the adaptor USB reader or whatever you have to connect it to the computer. Copy songs to the my_music folder.

for mp3 as ringtones:

  1. You should select the part of the song you like, and can add effects with this:
  2. To set it as a ringtone, send it as an attachments to you It must be small to go through, around 30 seconds.
  3. You will get a text message, and select options. Select Save As Ringtone.

Having problems playing music frommy sandisk 4gb micro memory card on my motorola ve240 cell phone

I have a similar problem, the issue for me was windows media player was creating a folder called music on my sd card and uploading the music there during sync function. However, the phone only looks in the \my_music folder on the SD card. Sync your phone, then rename the newly created music folder to my_music and the player will work. Still looking for a permanent solution to this problem.

LG KC550 PC Suite Problem

I speant Hours swearing at my phone because it would not read my music files, Tried the card on many different phones which would take Micro SD and all other phones read the music Just not the LG KC550.

I found that getting a Micro SD dongle reader, Insterting your 2GB Micro sd card in that and then putting your music files into the "sounds" folder works.


1. Insert Micro SD card into Card reader.
2. Insert card Reader to Computer Via USB.
3. Go to my computer and Open the USB Card reader.
4. Select the Music files from your pc Via Copy files
5. Go to open Tab (Where you can see your Micro Sd card) Open the sounds folder and Paste.

If you are finding it hard to get the 5 folders of images, Documents, Sounds, others and Videos on your Micro SD card. Format the card by going My computer, Right click the Card reader (with you Micro sd card inserted) and click format. Takes a few seconds. Insert the card into the phone, the phone will auto put the folders on the card. Then go to step 1 (above) and start again.

Hope this Helps guys.

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.

Where do you put the sandisk into?

the micro SD(smallest) goes into the phone the other 2 are adapters, mini for older PDA's, the largest goes into your PC (usually on newer models), if the pc does not have a slot for the sd, use a usb adapter to transfer music

I have a LG enV2. I bought a micro SD card so I could put my own music on my phone. For the life of me I cannot figure out how to get the music on my phone from the media card. Is there a way?

Ok, format your micro sd card, and then put it in your phone, and mess around in your music, then put it back in your pc and put your music in the media or the music file.. dont remember which one it was, and then put it in your phone. Now you can open your music and it will find them! Enjoy!
