My Phone wont Format the SDCard

I just got a kingston microSD card and I am trying to get my RAZR V3t to access it.  My computer will read it and i tried to place pictures on it to test it out, but the phone cant find them.  Also, i cant save anything to it on the phone (picture, video, etc).  I tried to reformat it on the phone but it keeps saying its not formattable.  I can format it on my computer in FAT or FAT32m but neither of them work.  Am I doing something wrong?

I cant format my memory card and my cellphone cant read it to what should i do .

Get a Multimedia card reader for yourself. Plugin in the card reader in computer and insert the SD card in it. Once you see the SD Card in My computer that means your card reader is able to read the SD card that you have inserted. You can right click on the icon and click format. Do a quick format and choose file system as FAT32.
You can use SD Card Formatter and can follow their manual. I think that will also work for you.

My computer won't recognize my phones memory card!

Well I found that these older card readers will not read the 4g sdhc format. In your case you found a 4 gig card that can be read (your sisters) Bring your's back to the store and get an exchange for the brand your sister has, let them know this. The knowledge for them is good. They most alway accomadate just to keep the customer happy.

Micro SD 2 GB just stopped working

The PIC or EEPROM inside these cards may not be working. I guess you best bet is to buy a new one try Kingston brand or go with another Sandisk.

Memory card for my nokia

According to the Nokia site the 6085 series uses a MicroSD card,Up to 2gb is supported..I think.

Not sure of your location but this nokia site for Nokia 6085 Memory cards has them
( you may need to enter your location and browse from there ! )

I'd try searching ebay for --> MicroSD+memory+card <--
like I said before I know that your 6085 will support up to 2gb sized cards,So stick to cards up to 2gb in size !!

I use a MicroSD-->SD adapter card. The MicroSd card slides into the back of the SDcard. Then I use a SDcard-->USB adapter to be able to read and write data on the MicroSD card.
