Question about LG CU500 Cellular Phone

Sandisk memory size

I'm trying to copy songs onto a 2GB sandisk mini SD chip to load into my LG CU500 phone. The first problem I get is that it will only load 549MB of songs onto the disk. Windows reports there is 1.35GB of space remaining, yet when I try and copy onemore song, I get a "disk full" error message.

Then when I insert the chip in my phone I get the "not ready" error message.

Any help would be appreciated especially on the second problem. It's no good having a disk full of songs that won't play.

Re: Sandisk memory size

Sounds like a fake chip - did it come from Ebay? Try to verify the chip's authenticity, there are some guides on ebay that show what to look for on the packaging and on the chip itself.

My lg cu500 says card not ready when I installed my mini sd memory card. There's nothing wrong with the card, because it works in another phone.

the card memory is too large for the phone... an SD card with a lower memory will most likely work....i had a 2gb sd card that will not work in a samsung sgh 500 as it will only take a max of 512 mb...put it in a samsung sgh probs...or try to format the card whe it is in said phone...if that doesn't work...try a lower memory card.

PC does not recognize Micro SD Card in LG CU500

The easiest solution is to leave it as 'mass storage', then navigate to it, my computer, mass storage, ect, Then just right click & open it. Now open your pictures, music ect. on your PC, drag & drop to the phone. That's how I do mine. You will be able to drop them into whichever folder you want. You might have to drop them into a folder on the phone then copy & paste them to the SD card after you disconnect from the PC. If you have more questions leave a comment, I'll be happy to help. Good luck.

Playing Music on Samsung A650 cell phone

Hi, You will probably have to copy them from the card to the phone itself. Just navigate to the SD card, choose the song, hit options, copy, a window should open asking where to, if not, navigate to your music folder, hit options, paste.
If this helps plz rate this 'fixya', if you need more help just leave a comment & I'll be happy to get more info for you. Thank you kindly.
