Re: FORMATTING A 1MB MEMORY CARD FOR SAMSUNG D900i
The memory card is pre-formatted. If a memory card needs formatting the phone will request that you format the memory card (the menu for this will appear on the phone). You can't re-format it.
You can check the total amount of memory for media items and the amount of memory currently in use in each media box.
Your phone is preset to use FAT16-formatted memory cards.
If you insert a FAT32-formatted memory card, the phone will ask you to reformat the
memory card. If you do not, you will not be able to access the card from the phone. If a folder on a memory card has sub folders which exceed the maximum folder depth supported by your phone’s file system, you may not open or delete the maximum depth sub folders on the phone.
Frequent erasing and writing will shorten a memory card’s lifespan.
• Do not remove a memory card from the phone or turn off the phone while data is being accessed or transferred. This could result in loss of data and/or damage to the card or phone.
• Do not subject memory cards to strong shocks.
• Do not touch memory card terminals with your fingers or metal objects. If dirty, wipe the card with a soft cloth.
• Keep memory cards away from small children or pets.
• Do not expose memory cards in a place subject to electrostatic discharge and/or electrical noise.

Don't know much about the Samsung phone; Can you put music on the 1 Gb memory card from another source (like a computer) and have it recognized by the phone? Does the phone require music in a particular format? For example, if the phone recognizes .mp3 music files, but all your music is in Ogg Vorbis (.ogg) files, you will not be able to play them on the phone.
1) Find the Samsung phone manual (online?) and see if it requires music files to be in one format, or another.
2) Try loading music, in the proper format, from different sources onto your memory card.
If the card is inserted correctly and its not damaged, then the memory card should show up under media manager, you need to put the files onto the memory card not on the phone...
When you first insert the card into the phone, you need to format the card, some phones create specific folders for different things when they format, e,g images, Videos, etc. You may need to do this.
I cant remember if this phone had this option but try it anyway as if it works, it should be faster than using Samsung PC Studio... Close Samsung PC Studio Unplug USB out of the Phone and a couple of seconds later plug it back in, see if the phone asks you for Mass Storage mode... If it does select that, after a while the Memory Card should show up on your PC just like a USB memory stick you can drag and drop files to it and its faster than going through Samsung PC Studio :)
transferred all my files onto my computer, then proceeded to format the memory card whilst in the phone. transferred all the files back onto the memory card and bingo the music player works fine. Strange that the memory card was from my samsung e900 and worked fine.
Your music may be located in a folder your phone doesnt recognize...that happend to me at first.
First you want to format your memory card through your phone. This will place the required folders on the card.
I used Windows media player to sync the music on my computer to the memory card using a media port on my computer. (just inserting the card directly to my computer). Once music was downloaded I looked at the card through "my computer", and noticed folders...one named "Music" and the other named "My Music". I moved the files from "Music" to My Music". Reinserted the card into my phone and the phone picked them up.
ok, I have managed to use my sandisk 512mb card to put on music...even though I didnt know you had to format the disk in phone first (I dont recommend because all my music is individual clips and not in my music file), however once you see that the music is on the card via "my files" I went to the music player and hit options...then hit "add music from" then hit "memory card"...now you must put a check mark by all the music files you want to add to the music player (or choose "all" and hit ok) This will put your chosen songs off your card into the music player and you can see the song title at the top of your player screen and use the arrows to move through your songs/clips. Choose the song and hit play.
