My 2 gig didn't work and my phone just froze when I turned it on with the memory card in it, but when I installed it with the phone on it would format it and not freeze..

Re: v3i card formating

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!

Re: v3i card formating

No solution... need a 512kb sdmini card... that is the MAX supported size.. i have the same thing on mine... i had a 512 card tho and it formats fine and works. the 2gb card wont even be recognized by the phone..nevermind format. i can also format it on my pc but that does no good

good luck

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.

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

Open the card on your PC and copy all your files to a folder on your desktop. Then go to my computer, right click the memory card and format. When a little window appears just click start.

If your files are deleted then paste them from your desktop back onto your card. This should fix the problem.

Memory card

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.

Problems with formating samsung e250 micro sd card

Did you try to format the card in the device thru Windows Media Player, or Rhapsody? If so, try formatting it thru My Computer instead. My Computer>Device Name>Right Click and select format. It is most likely NOT a virus if you have only put music on the device. It is most likely a corrupt file, or a database error. Best of Luck.
