I bought a 2gb Micro SD card for use wth SE k850i. Put it in the slot but the phone isn't recognising the memory card at all.
The card isn't faulty as it works in my samsung. I've also formatted the card using the pc. Have put it in with the phone on, and with it off. Also googled it but couldn't find anything of any help.
The phone has recently been repaired by Vodafone as the touch screen stopped working, so has been updated by them with the latest firmware etc.
Does anybody have any idea why it doesn't work? Any help will be greatly appreciated :)
Thanks

Yeh I tried another Micro SD card and still didn't recognise it. Do you think it could be yet another fault with the phone?

According to the SE site, it uses a Micro M2, not Micro SD

Edit: I see it uses both. Have you tried an M2?

try a 512MB card and a 1GB card ....... see if they are recognised

some phones are limited to what size they can read

Sounds like it - I have the same phone and never had a problem with a Micro SD card.

On a few sites I've looked on it says it can use both..... Thanks though :thumbsup: Not tried an M2 as I don't have one, I'll see if anyone I know has one i can try beofre buying one.

I think perhaps it may be a fault so i'll take it down to Vodafone shop tomorrow. Just wanted to check here first.
Thanks everyone, rep on way

Yep, I think it's a fault too as I'm using a 4GB Micro SD in mine with nps

Yes, sounds like a fault to me too. M2's aren't that popular, so you may have a problem finding someone with one.
