    I bought 3 separate types of 4gb micro sd cards for my phone and not a single one worked. They all had the same issue; the computer would not recognize it when I plugged it into my card reader. I have a 2 gb PNY that works just fine, but so far Kingston, San Disk, and one other all failed me.

Hi all. Just fixed this with my phone. Copy all the data you have on the portable storage device to a new folder on your desktop (just create one). Then open 'my computer', right click on the device, then click format. After that it will pull open a new window and it will have a format form option. It will say either FAT or FAT32. My sister's LG Trax wouldn't read the FAT32 but would the FAT. Then reload the card and give it a whirl. It worked for me on my cu 500 too.

When your on your main screen, right after you open your phone or press end call button. press 277634#*# and it will take you to the phones test page. go down to port settings and go down to mass storage press okay. then go down to mass storage remove. this usually gets the phone to read your card. sometimes you gotta play with it but it works

Brand does not matter here, a brand name only gives u advantage over warranty or assured quality for long term use.

And the reason why the card did not read could be that the phoe does not support 1Gb of mem. Try something lower say 512 or 256Mb.

I had the same problem with my LG CU500 when I bought a 1 GB Kingston card.  Research turned up this link and although it only talks about Kingston as opposed to the recommended SanDisk I would say you are going through the same thing with the Lexar card.

I ended up getting a SanDisk and it now works without errors.

Memory card not ready


are you getting a format error? the card (if new) should be "ready" already. also you may want to verify in your owners manual that the phone can handle a 4 gig card.

4GB micro sd card.


According to what I've read, you can double the original memory, but no more than that, so the max you can have on a Sansa e250 would be 4 GB (2GB internal memory and 2GB external memory). I also read that the micro SD cards holds
music only-no video.
