Phone can only access 8 of the 32 songs on the memory card

We recently purchased an i580 and it came with a micro memory card. I formatted the card and then uploaded my songs to it. I inserted the card into the phone and accessed the media player, and only 8 of the songs show up. Now, I know for a fact that there are 32 songs on that card. I can't find anything in the book or on the user guide cd, and the technical service reps can't seem to find their butt with both hands!! I am nearly at my wits' end.....HELP!!

Re: Phone can only access 8 of the 32 songs on the memory...

Are all of the songs the same file type (mp3, wma, au, etc...)? Check the card on a PC so confirm that the files have data in them (ie- the file size is not zero). How big is the memory card? Does the i580 have a maximum size card it can use?

Reply here and let me know what you find out.

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?

4gb memory card but when songs are bluetoothed sayes mem full

Hi there

  • Insert your memory card into your computer's reader if you have one. If not, you can purchase a multi-format USB Memory Card reader from or
  • 2 Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives.
  • 3 Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive.
  • 4 In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'.
  • 5 Leave all the options as they are and click on 'Start'. This is a non-reversible process so make sure this is what you truly wanted to do in the first place.
  • 6 Once the process is completed, take the memory card out and insert it into your Digital Camera or any other device. Try to browse to it to make sure it works fine now.

    Vids/music problems with lg viewty

    Viewty should be able to play 3GP and Mp4 format, what I think is probably you are inserting new memory card.

    Here's the problem with new memory card.. You can't fill it with data (songs, videos, pictures) by PC before you insert the new card into your phone. What will happen is, that your new card will be containing those data but unreadable by your phone.

    What you should do now, is backup your data inside the card to PC, then format the card by your phone or by PC, after it is formatted (clean), insert it once to your phone (the phone will write some system data and make folders to the empty memory card), after that, you can fill it with new songs and videos, and your phone should be able to read them. FYI , some phones need videos to be insert to video folder and picture to picture folder. But in this case, I think you just need to format your memory card and do as I instructed above. Hope that helps.

    Download to BlackJack II

    What format are the itunes songs in? The Blackjack II will read WMA, MP3, and a few others but not itunes format.

    The easiest way to get music on the phone is by putting all of the songs onto a memory card (Micro SD) and then put the memory card into the phone.

    Memory card micro sd cannot format

    Definitely your Micro SD Card has a problem. might be ita a virus problem.

    Try to format it by your Computer not by your Phone. If you have a AntiVirus scan your Card and then try to format it.

    if you are not successful in one chance Don't afraid at all, try it three or four times by removing and then inserting the Card again in the Computer........

    Saving music on my micro sd..

    The only way the music can be played on a cell phone is if it is in mp3 format. you also have to list the songs individually (they cannot be separated into folders). to listen to the music you should have some sort of music player on the phone that will play the songs.
