Re: Problem reading micro sd card on lg kg290
Well...all you should know about the micro SD card is that you should format it, when it's inserted in the computer's card reading/writing unit... once (the first format) and don't put any file in it...insert it in the phone, and format it again (formatting is rewquiring FAT 16, or FAT file system in both formatting processes) after that, reinsert it in the computer's card reader/writer and find a way to defrag it...after that do a check with a disk checking tool, or program...and after all is ok...you can put any file type on, insert it in the phone, and restart the phone...if this doesn't work...the card is either bad, or the phone does not support it's memory size...

Please remove the SD card and use an adapter to try the micro card on your PC. If the card is reading the files transfer all your important files to a marked folder.
Now there can be problems in the phone's card detection slot and so place card once again into the slot and try.
However is the card does not read then it is possible that the card has failed.
Micro SD cards for cell phones
are now costing less and are holding more memory. 4GB SD cards can hold
an estimated 1000 songs, over 13,000 images, or 22 hours of video
individually. 2GB memory cards hold roughly half those estimates and
8GB SD cards would hold double. So if your cell phone
has a SD card slot learn how to utilize this expandable memory option
on your device. Follow these steps and you will soon be enjoying your
music, pictures, and video on your phone!
Insert your SD memory card adaptor (with micro SD card inserted)
into your SD Card drive on your computer. This should open a "Secure
Digital Storage Device" or similar window. If not, go to "My Computer"
to locate your SD card and open it.
transfer picture files to your SD memory card, open the folder or file
that your pictures are stored on. Simply click and drag a file or
multiple files and drop them into your SD Card window or folder. You
can also copy a picture and then paste it to the SD Card.
transfer music files to your SD memory card, open your "My Music"
folder. Select the folder where you are going to get the music from
(Itunes, Yahoo Music...). Click, drag, and drop the files into the SD
Card window or copy and paste them in.
transfer video files to your SD memory card, open your "My Videos"
folder. Select the folder where you are going to get the video from.
Click, drag, and drop the files into the SD Card window or copy and
paste them in.
out the SD memory card adaptor from its drive. Remove the Micro SD card
(small chip for your phone) and insert it into the SD Card drive on
your Blackberry, IPhone, or other compatible cell phone.
Go to your media, picture, or music folder in your cell phones
menu. Select which item you are looking for and your files will appear!
I speant Hours swearing at my phone because it would not read my music
files, Tried the card on many different phones which would take Micro SD
and all other phones read the music Just not the LG KC550.
I found that getting a Micro SD dongle reader, Insterting your 2GB Micro
sd card in that and then putting your music files into the "sounds"
1. Insert Micro SD card into Card reader.
2. Insert card Reader to Computer Via USB.
3. Go to my computer and Open the USB Card reader.
4. Select the Music files from your pc Via Copy files
5. Go to open Tab (Where you can see your Micro Sd card) Open the sounds
folder and Paste.
If you are finding it hard to get the 5 folders of images, Documents,
Sounds, others and Videos on your Micro SD card. Format the card by
going My computer, Right click the Card reader (with you Micro sd card
inserted) and click format. Takes a few seconds. Insert the card into
the phone, the phone will auto put the folders on the card. Then go to
step 1 (above) and start again.
kk to add music make sure you syn the phone and the cp do the data and all then put .mp3 on all the media files and see if it works. Then if that doesnt go to computor format the card and then put it in the phone. Otherwise you need new stuff.
Instead of loading the music manager, click on file in the LG Suite box, and then click 'content'. This will connect without a problem (at least it did for me, despite music manager not working), and then drag and drop music from your pc files, onto your phone. Hope this helps.
