Question about Cell Phones
It is exactly a software/firmware issue since memory-utilizing devices have a limited recognition of memory storage media.
anyway, make sure that your media will be formatted using the phone where it is intended to be used, and not with a PC since this fault always brings access issues.

There are several of possible cause of the problem. Not ALL phones could support 2GB and higher storage memory cards. You need to verify with Samsung if the phone could support a 2GB memory card.
Regarding on what you have found in the comment that "the firmware is limited to 1GB". I'm sorry Barry, but I don't think so. Firmware is a software created for every device and that should work regardless of the storage capacity. Firmware is designed to work on the system and not in the storage.
The thing is, the phone could either support or not support 2GB memory cards. If Samsung says that it does support 2GB, then you may want to ask them if you need to use a regular 2GB or an SDHC 2GB card. If the phone still did not recognize any card, then this phone needs repair.
Have a great day!
