    Anyone got an LG Viewty? Micro SD card help, please?

    Hi all.

    Ordered an LG Viewty, will be arriving in a few days

    I was automatically going to order a 4gb micro SD card to go in it as that's what size I have in my SEk770i.

    However, I just stumbled up upon the fact that the Viewty can only support up to 2gb, is that correct?
    Elsewhere, I read that you can use a higher memory card if you format it or something, anyone know about this?

    Thanks, it's just that I will be really put off if I can only have 2gb memory

    only 2gb m8 ,, you can not format it in any way ,, we have looked into this for a while thats the only downside to the phone

    Someone on Amazon said this about a 4gb card:

    This card will work fine with many older phones and will work with the LG … This card will work fine with many older phones and will work with the LG Viewty. Insert the card into your computer and format it in FAT 16 using 64k clusters. You will lose some space, but not loads. When you insert it into the LG viewty it will say that you only have 2gb, this is because the LG viewty can only "see" up to 2 gb, but you will be able to play all files record videos and add new files etc. Hope this helps, enjoyPS. If you have filled your card up you may experioence some lag when it comes to loading files.

    oh well its up to u to try , but after having phone for nearly a year and reading all up on them within the first few months of having it , we just stuck with what we knew ,, and that was no bigger than 2gb would work ,

    i have a 6gb in mine, it doesnt show as 6gb in the phone but i can put 6gb of content on it in the card reader and the viewty sees and plays all the data

    didnt even format it any different just used it out of the packet as is

    Ok, now worries - I just thought that maybe your make one just happens to be one that will work in the Viewty so would have bought the same

    Did anyone find a certain answer on this, particularly which SDHC cards are definitely known to work? Need to buy a card and want to make sure it's compatible ... thanks.
