Re: Memory card format error

Try to format the media card on your computer (using a media card reader) if possible. Then try inserting it into the phone again and format if from there once more.

Re: Memory card format error

What formatting method did you use? FAT or FAT32? I believe that FAT32 is the correct means of formatting it on your computer.
