    Default Kingston 16GB Micro SD Class 10 card - will not work!

    I have installed a Kingston 16gb micro sd class 10 card and the Z10 will not format it, it just shows that the formatting is in process. I tries 2 different cards.. anyone else experience this? the computer will recognize it. I have an 8GB class 6 card in it now (Kingston) and it works fine.

    Where did you buy the card?

    If you got it on ebay I'd be worried.

    I have a kingston 16gb right now and it worked fine coming straight from my 9900 to the Z10, not sure what the issue is, mind you, for some reason, I had to "repair" it on the bold 9900 before I could a device switch with it.

    I sell computer equipment so I bought it from one of my distributors, works in my computer without any issues. (I have 4 of them, I tried 2, neither work in the Z10)

    try to ERASE the memory card, and then FORMAT it using the Z10. There may be a hidden file or something that is causing problems. maybe...

    This sounds stupid but try this...

    1) pull battery.
    2) insert or reinsert SDcard
    3) insert battery

    I have to do this on my 9900 in order for the sdcard contents to show up.

    OH, just thought of this. it is what happened with mine. The Z10 cannot read the card if USB mode is turned on.

    Go to the Storage settings and make sure USB Mass Storage is OFF.

    I tried inserting the sd with it off ..no go.. the mass storage is not available until it sees the sd. It goes to formatting and can't get past that.
