Question about LG CHOCOLATE VX8500 Cellular Phone
I have tried to format a Sandisk 2.0 GB micro sd card to my LG Chocolate VX8550. The phone does not appear to even read or recognize that there is a card. I have used the included adapter and my computer recognizes and utilizes the card--any suggestions beyond maybe the phone is broken?
Here are the steps I took:

When you put your adapter and sd into your computer, drag music files onto the my_music folder not the My Music folder. there is a difference. >.<

Is the card all the way in the adapter? I had that problem and once I realized it wasn't fully in the adapter it worked fine!

Put your Micro chip into the Chocolate
Take it out and connect it to your computer
You will see that the phone automatically saved folders such as "my_music"
Save your files into its folder
Put it back into the phone
(I'm 12 and I found that out)

I had the same problem and managed to fix it eventually. Turns out that when you try to turn on your phone MP3 player, it is looking in the wrong internal memory - so you get "list empty"! So you just need to move the files to the correct phone memory.
1) Plug in the phone to your PC using the USB cable.
2) Go to your PC and click on My Computer. You should see your phone listed as a drive denoted by a letter e.g. J, K , L etc. 3) Double click on the drive and you will see a folder called My Media follwed by a list of all your MP3 files.
4) Cut all the MP3 files to your clipboard.
5) Double click on the My Media folder, then on the Music folder.
6) Paste the MP3 files into the Music folder.
7) Disconnect the phone from the PC - and hopefullly job done!

1) The microSD card is inserted into a slot on the right side of the phone, approximately at the level of the top of the display screen. It has a cover which lifts off in the same way as the place where you plug in the charger. The microSD chip goes in with the contacts facing toward you (as you face the phone) and will only go in one way. Press it in gently until it latches in place. To remove it, press on it again and it will unlatch and pop out just far enough for you to remove it.
2) When viewed from your computer, the Chocolate VX8550 microSD should show four directories (folders) called my_pix, my_flix, my_music, and my_sounds. Music, in mp3 format, must be saved in the my_music folder. If you save it anywhere else, the phone will not "see" it.
When you insert the microSD card and power on the phone, the phone will create an index of the mp3 files using the information embedded in the mp3 files (artist, album, genre, song).
Please note that the phone also has its own internal memory which is separate from the microSD card. It is possible to move files from the card to the phone and vice versa, but when you do so, the file is moved, not copied.

You have to put your MicroSD card in the phone and then take it out once you do that put it in your computer and it should be already for formating, you should see files on the card.
