My phone will not acknowledge it has a Micro SD card in it. I inserted a friends recently and saw the behavior I expected but it won't read the new card I just bought. The card came with an adapter so I put it in my camera and the card works fine but the phone doesn't see it.
I suspect the contacts in the phone but they are very hard to see let alone clean.
Any ideas as to the cause and/or resolution?
Hi! whenever I plug my phone into my computer, the phone and computer won't react. In the phone, there's a SanDisk Micro SD card in it, and I would like to download music on my phone. Oh yeah btw, it's an LG CU500, too. And I don't know what to do. Help!

Re: LG CU500 not recognizing Micro SD card
Put your new card in your friend's phone to see what happens. See if he can get it going in HIS phone.
And check his card in your phone, AGAIN, just to be sure.
I looked over the manual but nothing special was required for memory card recognition, especially if your new card is exactly the same as your friends.

What is the size of the card you are putting there? before go at hw you must try and see if the size of the card is supported. in some Mobile phones if is larger than supported there will be error in reading

The cu500 and 500v have a seperate battery that operates the micro sd card, it goes dead after about 3 years, you have to take the phone apart to replace it, I do not recomend it unless you have electronic soldering experience.
I don't know if this is the code you're looking for, but I know I had to do a lot of digging to find it: 277634#*# You should really think about carving it into the back of the phone, because you'll need it a lot. About once a week, my CU500 decides that it isn't going to acknowledge my micro SD card, and I have to go into that menu to "Port Setting" -> "Mass storage" exit out, then go back in, "Port Setting" -> "Mass storage remove" exit out again. Only then does it recognize my memory card again. Rather irritating when I've got a GB of music on board that I want to listen to.
1 GB max for this phone and you must us a sandisk brand micro sd card it is not compatible with any-other card. Yes, it will work for a little while but you with have problems eventually. I replaced mine with a sandisk micro sd card and I have had no more issues.

click port setting

click mass storage remove
go back to main screen and check again for memory
if this doesnt work,take out memory card and try without the memory card.
