    what steps can I do to make sure that the 2GB card is recognized and seen? It shows that my total device memory is 19mb!

    nope, not this time! The last time I formatted it the system did not see it either! Should I format it?

    I just unplugged the phone from the PC and it in the adavcned option media card it shows tha the card is 1.8gb with mass storage turned on

    When I turn off mass storage mode support it shows that the media card is not available

    I would try to format it first. That should work.

    you can not re-format the files, you just have to format the SD card....

    then put the files on the specified folders (music, ringtones, videos, pictures) and you are done!!

    Am surprised that for a new card one would have to format it first...

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~i think you're thinking of the wrong type of "formatting". I believe that most formatting isn't only cleaning the card. It's also creating the file structure so that a particular device can read it. Like a 3.5 inch floppy. You can format it for PC or Mac. But once you've done one (or at least it used to work this way) you can't use the disk's data on the other.
