8830 and Micro SD card issue

I have a 8830 with 8gig sd card.  Have used it for the past two months and no problems.  Even used it today.  Now when i insert the card into the phone it does recognize that there has been a media card inserted. But when I go to tools it shows that the card needs to be formatted.  So it tried formatting via the phone and that fails.  Even tried formating from PC and it says there is no media disk inserted.  Not reading the card for some odd reason.  I used it this morning with no issues and have not received any errors on phone.  Any ideas?

Re: 8830 and Micro SD card issue

Hi and welcome to the forums:

If you have a card reader can the PC give you the options to format?

Make sure that in options-media first option Media card support is on.

I beliveve your media card has encounteed a major error and will need to be replaced.
