Phone card compatibility

  Doberman 09:30 24 Apr 2009

I have just bought a microSDHC memory card for my Samsung G600 phone and tried to transfer images from the phone to the card.I keep getting the message " no entry " and the card shows zero images.I was wondering if the type of card ie. high capacity is incompatible with this paticular phone.As far as I know I have been through the formatting procedure correctly.I know that this isn't specifically a computer problem but am hoping someone has an answer.

hi doberman you dont say what brand your card is i uesd to have a g600 and had no problem it could be faulty card firstly id try formatting you card in pc for that you need an sd adapter you put your micro card into that and turns it into sd size to fit pc if you dont have one go to morrisons they have a sandisk pack for about £15 you get a 2gb micro sdhc card and two adapters mini sd and full sd the full sd will fit pc and you will get another 2gb micro to use or if you have an sd adapter and formatting it doesnt work morrisons do a 4gb sandisk micro sdhc card on its own for about £10.

have you checked your phone manual you may have to format the card as i did with my lg before it recognised it

and for your info the hc part means high contrast

Samsung G600 accepts Micro SD cards.The largest Micro SD card you can use in your Samsung G600 is 2GB..

If its not SD and its bigger than 2gigs its not compat.

"and for your info the hc part means high contrast"

The HC part stands for High Capacity.

Capacity Standard SD: 4 MB to 4 GB
SDHC: 4 GB to 32 GB
SDXC: 32 GB to 2 TB

It looks like it was the wrong card a standard micro sd required not sdhc micro my U900 takes an ordinary micro SD
