    I have had my phone for 8 months and i bought a 1 GB micro SD( by Lexar) card for it and it has been acting up lately. Everytime i try to listen to the music i put on it, the phone keeps turning off. It acknowledges that the memory card is inserted but everytime i try to look at my pictures, rigntones/ music, and videos the phone is always turning off.
    and now it does not even acknowledge that the Micro SD has been inserted.
    what should i do?

    I have the same problem!! I bought the memory card and it wouldn't even acknowledge that the card was in the phone! By now I have a new phone because it has been awhile, but I'd still like to use a memory card in that phone on some occasions...

    if you actually get it working then you can save a picture to it that you've taken and if you put that picture for a person then it'll save so you can call them if it says the card isn't ready, so yeah

    I Have a LG CU500 , My MP3s were working perfectly, and suddenly just keep telling me " card not ready ". I have a 512mb and a 1gb card and still

    none of them work now.... I was told this phone can handle only the 512mb

    card, maybe that's why a lot of people is having this problem. Like I told you before, my 512 worked good ...

What is the capacity of your SD card? Some phone don't recognize a 4gb or 2gb, it's better to use 1gb SD card. Try to buy a memory card reader, put the SD card there and plug it on USB port to test if your SD card is working..

I bought a 1 GB and inserted into my phone and it said card not ready but what got mine to work was you have to go to the main menu select 1 (Cingular Music) then select 1 (Music Player) and then select 3 (Shuffle Songs) and then it should recognize the memory card. Thats how i got mine to work. Hope it helps you.

I have a LG Shine i guess its the CU750 or somthing like that. I was getting messages like Card not ready. I found that if I pushed the card farther in with a butter knife the card finally was able to be read.

Hi,

Your mobile doesnt support micro SDHC card, it supports only micro SD card, So check whether the card you use is SD and not SDHC

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.
