    I got a 2gig mini sd card for my phone. When I got it I just put it into the phone to see if it would work. It didnt because I did not know you had to format the card first using the phone. So I put it into my computer and it worked, so I put a mp3 onto it too see if the phone would read it. Nope. So I put it back into the computer and tried formating it with the computer. Woops I know.
    My question is: is there a way to get my card to work with my phone again?

    Thank you in advance for any help you can give.

    a 2GB card will never work on your phone they only support up to 1GB.
    Can you hear me now?

    2gig

    The guys at verizon say it should be not problem. They probably just have no idea. Ok thank you. They told me there is a new software version coming out either this month or next. Any info on wether this is true or not? Think the phone will support it with the new software? I have v2 right now.

    Noooooo

    Noooooooo.
    That sucks. It would be nice to get a good 60 - 200gb on one of these bad boys and get rid of the ipod for good

    Ok you guys have been a great help thank you.

    One More Question

    One more question. Because I have the 2 gig and it will not work with the phone. Can I somehow make the phone recognize it only as a gig stick or somehow format it to be 1 gig so that the phone will recognize it?
    I would like to keep the 2 gig is possiable so that I can use it later when it does support 2 gig.

    Thanks again.

    you can try for format it and partition it into 2 1GB section (it will actually be less then 1GB) but that might work give it a try and see what it does.

    As far as I know, there is no way to get the phone to read over 1 gig because of the software.

    Also, from what I have heard, (just hear-say mind you) the new version that's coming out will also not support anything over a gig either.

    Then again (hear-say again), I have heard they are already working on both a new phone and a new version that will support past the one gig point.

    We will just have to wait and see...but as it stands right now....nothing past a gig is supported....sorry.

    Partition It

    Well I would love to partition it but I have no idea what software will allow me to partition it. Does anybody know? Can you even partition a miniSD card? I guess you could, but I have no idea with what. I see lots of data recovery programs out there for miniSD but no partitioning. I wonder if partition magic would do it.

    Any thoughts?

    i hardly ever run into these problems because a sales person will tell you anything to get you to buy. i do a little thing called research.
