I got a solution for a 1gig card, so the 512mb max thing is nonsense.

Check this link:

Register there, download the file and open with rar or zip. I formatted my card using the cardreader in my laptop (FAT, not FAT32) and added the files in the above file. Just place the "itunes" and "mobile" maps in the root of the card. Take it out, place it in your phone and voila!

note: works on a 1gig micro sd card. Don't know about 2 or more.

Good luck!

good luck

I bought a 2GB micro SD memory card for my phone but it wont work. i tried formatting it using my phone but it was asking for a password :/ do i have to set a password for it? how do i format it with a pc?

To format it on a PC, simply insert it in your PC if you have a microSD slot, or use a card reader.
When you get the Removable Media driver simply right click and press "Format", press Format again on the menu and wait a few minutes. Then try it on your phone.
Have fun :)

2GB Micro SD needs format code that I never gave it


You can format your micro-SD Card using a software which you can download by clicking this link. I uploaded it to my FTP site for you and it will be there for a limited time. Download that file and save it to your PC. Then unzip that ".zip" file.

If you format micro SD card connecting it to your PC via USB port, it may not ask for password. (I think your phone asks password to format.)

To format your micro-sd card:

- First plug in your micro-sd card into you PC.

- Run the downloaded "HPUSBFW_2.2.3_MASTER.exe" file.

- In the program menu window, select the device (your memory card).

- Select FAT32 as file system,

- Confirm that all the format options unchecked. (Uncheck the quick format option)

- And click the "Start" button to begin formatting.

Hope this helps you.

The 2g kingston micro sd card fails to format in samsung muse phone. It start and then say format failed. I can put it in my computer and transfer information and then retrive it but my phone says nothing...

I have the same problem to beginning with. The new 2GB SD Micro card/with adapter didn't work at all. It didn't see it by window explorer. Others older once did work properly. Make sure you update your SD card reader driver to the latest version. It should be work. My did after updated the card reader driver.

Or update your all in once card reader if you have one.

Good Luck

Hi.. I think you have solved the problem yourself... replace the adapter with a memory stick... You have eliminated the micro sd card as bad... now try a new known good memory stick..

I was having same problem with a 4 yr old digital camera. Apparently, it only recognizes up to 512 MB, and the card needs to be partitioned into 4 parts.
