Question about Samsung SCH-u740 Cellular Phone

2 Answers

Memory Problem I just purchased a 4GB MicroSD card. My u740 won't format the card. I put the card in my reader and it works just fine. I was wondering if this is a phone problem? I didn't know if the phone just doesn't support a 4GB Card. I didn't find anything about it in the book or online so far so if anyone can help me that would be great. :)

I can't format my new micro sd card


The Samsung Alias works with microSD cards. Your 8GB card is actually a microSDHC card and will not work in devices not designed to work with them. You need to use a microSD card, 2GB or smaller.

Cannot format sd card


You are probably trying to format a micro-SD card that is greater than 2GB eg, micro-SDHC (High Capacity) of 4GB or bigger are not supported by 'older' devices. Stick to 1Gb or 2Gb standard microSD cards for your device.

Hope it helps. Let me know how you go.

My Samsung Gravity won't format my 4gb MicroSD PNY memory card, but when I go to format it on the computer, it says "formatted complete". I put it in my phone and it still ask me to format it, when I click...


Hello

If the Card Says MicroSDHC on it the phone itself does not support HC so you have to get a regular MicroSD card. I had the same problem and purchased a 2gb MicroSD card and it works fine in my samsung gravity.

Motorola SLVR won't format my memory card.


I am not sure this will work, just a suggestion

Try inserting the micro sd card in the larger sd adapter that will allow you to put it into your computer reader. Try formatting it there instead

Cannot format memory card


The Samsung Alias can only use up to 2gb microSD cards. I had this same problem after purchasing a 12 gb card only to discover that I could not use it with this phone. Hopefully this will be fixed when they make the Alias 2.

Unfortunately, we have found an incompatibility with a new revision of our microSD and the USB adapter that accompanied the card you purchased. We are in the process of solving the compatibility issue. We are truly sorry for the inconvenience and would like to send a new card that is compatible with your USB adapter. Your original card should be functional in other adapters, phones, and cameras. The microSD card's compatibility problem should only exist with that USB Adapter.

We would also like to send you two free music downloads from Duracell Flash Memory.

If you would like to take advantage of this offer, please let us know your full name, address, the size of the microSD, and the name and location of the store from which you purchased your microSD.

Sd micro card


it might not work because as i know the maximum external mem that you can put in sch-u740 is just 2-gig micro sd... that's why it won't work and there were times that it might shut down or turned off automatically....
