Re: Memeory Card Installation

There are several possible issues here so I will cover them all...

The size of the card is not the issue as the model you have is known to work with 2gb and 4gb SDRAM Cards.

If the memory you have is SDHC rather than Regular SD that would be the problem. Your device will not work with SDHC memory.

What OS did you use when you reformatted the card? The reason that I ask is that the standard format for that device is supposed to be FAT, not FAT32 or NTFS. If you formatted it in FAT32 or NTFS it will work fine on your computer but not on the phone.

Try reformatting the card using the FAT system.

Motorola w490 (t-mobile) wont detect any memory card

The contacts in the phone are possibly dirty. To fix this, turn off the phone, remove the battery and clean it as follows:

Take a piece of thick paper (card stock is good). Cut a strip the width of your memory card about 4 inches long. Fold the strip in half and dip the folded end into isopropyl alcohol. Gently insert the damp card into the memory card slot (memory card removed) and with an in and out motion, clean the contacts by rubbing them with the card. Allow the slot to dry out for several minutes. Reinsert the battery and the memory card and then power up the phone. If this does not fix the issue, you may have to have the port replaced by a service shop.

Memory card

Have you formatted memory card in phone before you started storing data on it? By formatting the memory card it will set up folders which the phone will look at to determine different types of data, i.e. photo folder holds photos, video folder holds mp4 &3gp, and music folder holds mp3 etc.
Then when your memory card is connected to your pc drag and drop data into correct folders and then phone should be able to recognise the different types of data. Hope that helps?
Only other thing I can think is that your memory card is too large to be recognised by your phone? It will only support upto and including 2gb Micro SD cards.

Phone can't recognize external memory card

Memory card should be Micro SD. The KU990 will only support cards up to and including 2gb, so if you have larger that is why phone will not recognise it. If you have 2gb or below, have you formatted it in the phone?

Just bought 4GB SD card that hx4700 does not recognise - help pse

Your slot in the iPAQ is a SD slot, not a SDHC slot - therefore it will not read the card. Your PC card is probably a dual reader. The SD cards look the same but are different. Have a read of this...

LG viewty 4 gb memeory card..I accidently formated ths on phone! how do i unformat it?

Hi, I also had this issue.
The solution is on

You need to google for an app from HP called SP27608.exe.
This will read the card as 4gb and let you reformat it.
