    i think the phone can take the card, it was working prior to me sending some music to it, about 2gb worth, could this be the root of my problem?



  • pudster May 30, 2008

    i bought it off a website 'lowpricememory.com', they sent me a compatability chart for the cards and it said my phone could take up to 8gb, also my friend has the same phone with a 4gb card, however it is not an extreme II, any ideas?



  • pudster May 30, 2008

    how do you re formatt a card, does it require any special software?

  • pudster May 30, 2008

    okay, what am i looking for? theres pictures and music in the files but nothing out of the ordinary.


  • pudster May 30, 2008

    iv got a card reader built into my computer i just put it in there

  • pudster May 30, 2008

    they are in the music file, i deleted them in case there was a problem with one of them or something.

  • pudster May 30, 2008

    as im moving the files back using 'disk to phone programme' a lot of error messages are coming up stating 'unable to process' is this part of the problem?



  • pudster May 30, 2008

    aha, iv figured out the card seems to work unless an error message comes up during transfer, im guna try and move the files without the disk to phone thing! myt work.

  • pudster May 30, 2008

    yey it worked, thanks a lot cellphoneer, you helped me find the real problem, its nice to know someones just willing to help!!!!!! :)

You might want to check but i think that the w810i can only hold a 2 micro card. thats probaly why its not working. the pantech duo is oen of the ponly phones that can hold the 4.

    yeh. im almost positive, it wont take the 4. I would ask your local att store. did they tell you it would?

    well, i would try re formatting it and putting it into the adpater straight into the computer and seeing whats on it through the desktop. it came with a pc adapter right? if not just keep it in the phone and plug it in with the usb cord and see whats in each folfer "music" ringtones" it may need to be reformatted, but dont do this unless you have a copy on your computer, reformattign it will erase all data on it

  • Trisha

    no, you just go to your mmc setting on your mobiel device and it has an option to format card then it will say, all datat wilbe lost if you continue. make sure your stuff is saved soemwhere and you can continue. i woudl try the computer thing first though, putting it into your computer and seeign what exactly is on it

  • Trisha
    Trisha May 30, 2008

    with the usb or the mmc with adapter?

  • Trisha
    Trisha May 30, 2008

    ok, perfect. what folders do you see? where are the music files? in rigntone file or music file?

  • Trisha
    Trisha May 30, 2008

    ok. since you deleted em, try goign back and puttin gthem back on, mayeb try putting soem in the rign tones file and soem in the music file.

W810i flashes me a white screen then nothing


When I had the white screen problem, I was about to replace my W810i before I found out about the Sony Ericsson Update Service (SEUS). I used it to fix the firmware inside my phone, even though the phone seemed dead and my computer wouldn't recognize it. You can download the SEUS from Sony's website here:

Sony ericsson w810i


clean the connecters on the memory card if this dosent work then blow in the hole to remove any dust that might might be affecting the phone from reading the card. but if that dont work either then take it to a phone shop and see what they say because it might need fixing thats if it can be fixed hope this has helped.
