Micro SD card. But its HC and can't be formatted in my phone.

I already have a card that works in my phone perfectly. I have just bought the cheap Sandisk from Morrisons as a spare. which the phone is rejecting because it won't format. Is there a problem with tha card or the phone.


what size is it?

4GB and over are micro SDHC cards, not standard micro SD.

Your phone will have to support the SDHC format for it to work..

It may help if you stated what phone, and what card. Possibly.

Basically my phone appears to be too old.

Just found this at Wiki:
Secure Digital (SD) is a non-volatile memory card format developed by Matsushita, SanDisk, and Toshiba for use in portable devices. Today it is widely used in digital cameras, digital camcorders, handheld computers, PDAs, media players, mobile phones, GPS receivers, and video games. Standard SD card capacities range from 1 MB to 4 GB (according to the SanDisk Developers website [1]). The capacity range for high capacity SDHC cards overlaps slightly, beginning at 4 GB but reaching as high as 32 GB as of mid-2009. The SDXC (eXtended Capacity), a new specification announced at the 2009 Consumer Electronics Show, will allow for up to 2 TB capacity cards.

The format has proven very popular. Changes to the interface of the established format have made some older devices designed for standard SD cards (≤4GB) unable to handle newer formats such as SDHC (≥4GB). All SD-cards have the same physical shape and form factor however, which causes confusion for some consumers.[1][2]
