Take out the card and insert any other card, if it still says so then uneed to contact the service centre. Your phne will be repaired or if not possible then replaced free of cost as it is in warranty period.
you could just pull out the card and connect it to your computer and
format from your computer or u could download a program called Card
Export II just install it then connect to pc via usb cable then press
connect on the program then go to my computer and you will see
"removable media" just right click that go to format...and you should
be good to go
I was also getting bad format error on my LG kc550. Did a little research (read the instruction book) and if you want to properly format your card to work with the phone you must insert the card into the phone then connect the phone to your computer via the USB cable supplied. Go to "My Computer" and you should see that the phone and memory card are displayed as two separate external devices, when you try to access the memory card your computer should ask you to format it. Click Ok and a Format box will come up, click Ok again and your computer will format the memory card acordingly.
Unfortunatly this resulted in my losing 4gb of space on the card, i dont know wether its based on percentage or a fixed amount the phone needs but if thats the case you will need more than 4GB for your card to be formated for your phone
Most PCs are like that. I don't know what it is but the computer won't do it for mine neither. To put music and such on you sd card for your phone you must format the card while it's in your phone. Goto setting, Memory, Card memory, then click on opions. From there it will say "Format Card". Do it and the lock code is the last four digits or your phone number. After that's done to load music and such you put the sd chip onto you computer and transfer music to the folder on the sd card called "My_music", pix to "My_pix", and so on....
