My Phone wont Format the SDCard

I just got a kingston microSD card and I am trying to get my RAZR V3t to access it.  My computer will read it and i tried to place pictures on it to test it out, but the phone cant find them.  Also, i cant save anything to it on the phone (picture, video, etc).  I tried to reformat it on the phone but it keeps saying its not formattable.  I can format it on my computer in FAT or FAT32m but neither of them work.  Am I doing something wrong?

    I it turns out that Kingston doesn't make a microSD card that works on the V3t. As far as i know only the ScanDisk brand works.

Maybe the problem is with the phone? . because you can format the card with your pc just fine... i believe phones usually use the fat32 filesystem .. so IT SHouLD work..

MP66 can't read microSD kingston

The MP66 can read microSD cards. Your 8GB card is actually a microSDHC card and will not work with the MP66. You need to use SD and microSD cards, 2GB and smaller.

The card is not format from my samsung sgh d900

Your device may not be reading it. So, please insert it into your computer's card reader and see if it is read there. If yes, then copy all the data to the computer and then format it and then use it in your device and format it there. If it is not read there then you can try it on still different computer and if it still does not behave then you can throw it away. It must really have gone bad.

My computer won't recognize my phones memory card!

Well I found that these older card readers will not read the 4g sdhc format. In your case you found a 4 gig card that can be read (your sisters) Bring your's back to the store and get an exchange for the brand your sister has, let them know this. The knowledge for them is good. They most alway accomadate just to keep the customer happy.

Micro SD 2 GB just stopped working

The PIC or EEPROM inside these cards may not be working. I guess you best bet is to buy a new one try Kingston brand or go with another Sandisk.
