Does not read from adapter

Hi, i just bought this 4gb card and it doesnt seem to load from the adapter provided. However when i load it from USB adapter, it works. Is there something wrong with the card? I've tried it with a different microSD adapter as well and it still doesnt work!

    Hi, Just bought a Sandisk 2GB micro SD card and adapter, my card reader will not recognise it, the adapter with the original Nokia Sd card is recognised, is there a problem with my New SD Card.

    I have the exact same issue and not only does it not read from the adapter, but it totally locks up the "my computer" folder when I click on it after inserting the card. It just hourglasses forever. I tried it in the phone after that, so it can't be a password issue.

Sounds like a defective card. Some phones only take up to 2 gigs, and will not format anything larger. Try the card on another phone or computer.

4gb sandisk wont work

The Viewty can (as far as I have been able to find out) only work with up to 2Gb memory - But!!! If you stick the 4Gb card in a card reader / USB adapter and upload enough stuff to it so that there's 2Gb or LESS free space left on the card you can then use it in the Viewty.

The phone can then tell deal with the amount of free space as well as being able to access the stuff you uploaded :)

Read that somewhere & it worked for me.

Why doesn't my USB adapter read my 4GB MicroSD

You may need to upgrade to a MicroSDHC card reader for your computer. My computer couldn't read the MicroSD cards I was using in my Rumour phone either, but this solved the problem. You can purchase these upgraded card readers that plug into the USB port on your computer for around $30.

Guaranteed solution!

This is from Duracell Support

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. For your inconvenience, there will be no need to ship the original microSD card back to us so feel free to keep and use them both. 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. When we receive your information we will ship your replacements parts and music downloads immediately.
Best Regards,

I don't have this unit but I have this problem with another unit. Problem when unit read only 1-4GB SD without this symbols HC because this cards which have HC is high speed storage and need high speed storage readers or this unit need new upgrade to read SDHC and I think upgrade is not possible for this unit. You need to use only standard SD 1-4GB cards. Or you can ask service or upgrade is possible.
I hope I help :)
