    First check to see if support is on for the card
    Look in Options-Advanced-Media Card / Support=On

    While you are there once we see the card hit Menu and select Format Card.

    hope you got it in the right way, would be the 1st thing i checked.
    make sure media card support is turned on, (options, advanced, media card)

    If its on and still not working, do a battery pull..

    Is it a new card? You may have to reformat the card--hopefully not.

    Re: media card issues

    what OS are you running on your phone, and what is the size of the card?

    4.2.1.94 (and around there) supports 2gb
    4.2.1.101 and up supports 4gb.

    so if you are trying to put a 4gb card into a phone that is running older code it will not work

    Sounds dumb but I had to take mine out twice and but back in before it recognized the card in my phone. I was not clamping the card all the way in. Try that it worked for me

    Yeah...the part about the long struggle followed by not recognizing the card has me a bit worried about if it is installed correctly.
