My memory card reader isn't reading the cards now. I did just get it back from Microcenter and had the motherboard replaced. Is it likely the tech did not connect the reader to the motherboard??? I haven't had problems with the reader before at all!

To check your memory card ,you need a memory card reader.
insert your memory card into the reader and connect the reader to the USB of your PC. save your data if needed.
if its reading try to format it in your Pc by right clicking the mouse.
format option. then insert the MMC back to the phone and format it in the settings menu/storage.
your memory card will work fine.
if you cannot format using your PC replace the memory card.
What type and size memory card? What card reader? Is the card reader compatible with it? For example, SDHC cards will fit into an SD card reader, but unless the reader was designed specifically to be compatible with SDHC cards as well as SD cards, it won't work.
Try reading the card with another device such as a computer card reader, also make sure there isn't some sort of lock switch on the card. If the card will not read in another device it is probably faulty and needs to be replaced.
Please try a different card & confirm that your phone card reader are working or not. If its working then you sure that, you r memory card have problem. So try to format it and then use. Some time virus's block the card.
If you seen that, your phone does not read any card then visit the nokia service center and give them for service/ internal dust cleaning.
Get a USB card reader, insert the memory card into the card reader and then connect the card reader into the USB port of your computer.
The computer will see the memory as an external memory device, now you can view the data/images and copy them to your computer.
The memory card reader on your computer may not be able to read memory cards over certain capacities (4 GB).
To use your higher capacity memory card without locking up the computer, do one of the following:
If you are using the card in a camera or other device, you can attach the device to the computer using a USB or FireWire cable. When connected, most devices appear in Windows as a Removable Disk and can be used in the same way as the card reader.
Purchase a USB memory card reading device that plugs into any open USB port. Make sure the USB device is capable of reading SDHC. These devices are fairly inexpensive and can be used in any computer that has a USB port.
If the card reader stops working after using Safely Remove Hardware, reset the cable connections and memory card firmware.
Memory card appears in My Computer but errors occur when writing or reading If you are having problems reading and writing data to memory cards, use the following troubleshooting tips:
Try a different memory card of the same type in the same slot. If the different memory card works, the card reader is good and the original memory card should be replaced.
Some cards have a read/write security switch on the card. Make sure that switch is set to Write Enabled before attempting to write data to it.
Make sure that the amount of data you attempted to store has not exceeded the capacity of the card.
Inspect the ends of the memory cards for dirt or material closing a hole or spoiling a metal contact. Clean the contacts with a lint-free cloth and small amounts of isopropyl alcohol. Replace the memory card if necessary.
Make sure the memory card is one of the supported types: CompactFlash (1, 2, and Microdrive), Memory Stick, MultiMedia, Secure Digital, or SmartMedia memory cards.
Make sure the memory card is fully inserted into the slot. Remove the memory card when the light is not flashing and shine a light into the empty slot. Are any small pins inside bent? Replace the memory card reader or have the computer serviced if a pin is touching another pin. Straighten slightly bent pins while the computer is off using the tip of a mechanical pencil.
Put the SD card back into the card reader. Are you files still there when the computer tries to read them? If they are not, then it is very likely the card is corrupt. This happens when the card is removed before the computer is done reading/writing to the card.
What size is the SD card in GBs? If it is larger than 2GB (4 or 8) do you have a SDHC card reader? Also try formating the card first in the phone and then using it. Using it straight out of the package, while able to be written, my have difficultly with other devices reading the data.
