I have a relatively new Motorola RAZR V3m cell phone, and I just bought a 2GB PNY Micro SD card for it. My computer will recognize the card as a memory device just fine, but the phone won't recognize it, and won't even show that there is a card in it. Any suggestions for how I can get the card to work?

Here's what you do; go back to the store, smack the clerk upside the head for giving you bad advice, and trade the 4gb for a 2gb.. (or the razr for another phone). The V3m doesn't support SDHC cards; only SD ones. SD are 2gb and below, while the HC (high capacity) are 4gb and up. Sucks, doesn't it..
sharp, you have to format the SD through your phone and then copy the music to the folder provided by the phone for the music. make sure you check the playing / bitrate / file type of audio file that the phone is limited to play.
soda monster, first of all wuz up man? the answer is yes, i had a razor v3i pretty much same thing to urs, and i installed a 2gb micro sd and it worked, and later i replaced it with a 4 gb card and it worked too. but sometimes when u have to many songs and pictures the phone will become slow and at times freezes ur phone too much, u will have to remove the battery and turn it back on, thats the only bad part , so a 2gb micro sd is recommended.
HAVE YOU TRIED TO REFORMAT THE CARD. IF YOU TRY TO REFORMAT IT MAKE SURE EVERYTHING ON YOUR CARD IS BACKED UP ON YOUR COMPUTER OTHER WISE YOU WILL LOSE THE INFO ON THE CARD. IF THAT DONT WORK TRY TAKING THE BATTERY OUT FOR ABOUT 10 SECONDS THEN PUT IT BACK IN AND POWER IT ON THAT WILL REBOOT YOUR PHONE.
The V3m has an inherent flaw with the Sd Micro Memory Card. Installing the card, which fits extremely tight can damage the electrical contacts in the micro chip socket. This can result in low battery life due to a short to metal chassis of phone and not being able to communicate properly with memory chip. I had my first Razr V3m replaced by Sprint after only 2 days of ownership.When I got my new phone I carefully filed the tab on the Sd Micro Chip so insertion and extraction is much easier.
