  1. When you formatted on your computer, what filesystem type did you use (NTSF or FAT32)? What format does your phone require (check your manual)? The problem is likely a filesystem problem. Good luck!
  2. i tried it on both =/ i cant find where it tells me what format my phone requires in the manual
  3. What make/model of phone are you using?
  4. Also, have you tried with another SD card?
  5. the box says cdm8975 i tried a 4gb card yest and it did the same only it didnt let me do anything i thought maybe it was just too much so went and got the 2gb card
  6. Here are the specs for your phone (I think):


    Looks like it will support up to an 8GB microSD. Have you formatted the card on the phone itself? Also, are you using VCast to copy stuff between your PC and the phone (just by connecting the phone to your PC via USB)?
  7. Check this link. Similar model at bottom tells you how to set up folders. Try this as well.
  8. BTW, you should be using FAT32 for the filesystem if formatting via the PC.
