Just bought a 2gb mini sd card, when I insert it into my n80, the phone does not beeb and it states, no memory card inserted, however, if I reboot the phone with the card in, then go to memory, it says that its their, but when I try to format it, nothing happens, then it says no memory card inserted agian, any ideas. Also, my epson r300's card reader doesnt read it when it is in the adapter

My 2gig card arrived yesterday, having experience of card recognition from other devices (PocketPC etc) I formatted the 2Gig on my pc prior to turning phone off etc remove card insert new card turn it on, the other reason i formatted it on the pc was I had copied my 128mb which came with the phone off onto the pc and then copied all the stuff back to the card.
As i recall when you look at the files on your card on a pc there is card id file that needs to be copied back.
Admittedly this is not a neat solution when you're stood outside a Dixons or whatever with a new card in your hand :-)
I can now get an hour of video on the 2 gig card, not that I'm about to shoot a muvee(groan) on it :-)

Probably not same problem as you but I got a 2GB MiniSD that was dead (could see it on the pc but couldn't format it). Phone didn't recognise it. Got it replaced and the world was a happy place again.

Dear keith ross,
We have received your returned faulty 2gb Mini SD Card - many thanks.
We have recently discovered that there appears to be a manufacturing fault with these cards, as for some reason they do not work with Nokia phones (although they work fine with all other phones). Therefore, if we send you a replacement card, there is a very high likelihood that this card will not work either, causing you further inconvenience. I therefore suggest that we issue you a full refund via your paypal account.
Please advise whether this is acceptable, and I will issue you the refund immediately.
Again, we are very sorry for this inconvenience, and we have discontinued using this supplier in question.

my n80 did this for a while with the supplied card. i think it may be because i removed the card without selecting the remove card option in the start menu. after i did this, all seems fine again:rolleyes:
