    They've had alot of problems with Micro and will be recalling them. Your card is bad. This is what my son was told today by Alltel.

    1st thing, no reason you should have to hold the card at all for any reason. Does the card not click into place like it should? I know on my Sync it's nearly impossible to get the card to seat by using your fingers, I had to use a dime to get it to click into place. Once you get the card in you have to format it, did you do that? I had a hell of a time trying to figure out how to do that but finally got it.

    Go to "my stuff", select "options", select "memory card settings", select "format". This will prepare your card for use in your phone. Once you do that you should be able to do what you want.

    If you're having to hold the card with your finger, either you didn't push it in all the way or the phone is defective since it won't allow the card to click into place.

    There is no need to format a microSD card. The phone will automatically prepare the card for use.

    Yeah, I guess Samsung put the format option in there just for ****s and giggles

    While it may very well be possible that it does as you say, given the issue the OP is having, manually formatting the card surely can't hurt.

    The original poster has a mechanical problem not a logical problem. If the card is not recognized, it cannot be formatted.

    Manual or automatic formatting aside, any card that has to be held in is defective.
    ...and this old thread should probably be closed.

    It looks like Sync master addressed that when he said "If you're having to hold the card with your finger, either you didn't push it in all the way or the phone is defective since it won't allow the card to click into place."
