Lumia 520 Micro SD Card Not detected

Hello,

 

I have just bought a Lumia 520 and decided to insert a Micro SD card, however on the the Phone Storage menu it says SD Card not found, I have tried 2 other Micro SD cards with the same result???

 

SD Cards are Optima 16gb & Kingston 2gb??

 

I have noticed other Lumia 520 owners are having similar problems.

 

Does anyone know if there is a simple fix or answer??

 

Thanks

Factory reset the device with the card in it,make sure you have nothing on it or back it up.
To factory reset press and hold the power key and volume down key for about 15 seconds until the phone vibrates and restarts

If  i have helped at all a click on the white star below would be nice thanks.

Could also be worth installing Lumia Pusher to check everything up to date: http://www.windowsphone.com/en-gb/store/app/lumia-pusher/492cccf5-6352-4c77-8e5f-fd267bcddafb

If you can, format the card on your PC using FAT32. Do a full format, not a quick format

The problem here is the class off the card!
Class 4-6 is ideal anything over that is the problem.

Re: Lumia 520 Micro SD Card Not detected

the nokia owners manual on my 720 says the microSD card should be atleast class 4. it didn't say up to what 'class' it's compatible with.

 

i've read several inputs where class 10 was working and equally the same where class 10 cards were not. so when i bought mine, i thought to buy something in the middle... class 6. it does work, no problems at all

 

so far :squint:

Class 4-6 is perfect class 10 is a no go.Its an overkill.

My SanDisk class 10 card works fine, just as it said it would on the packaging.

No go means it won't work, overkill means an unnecessary cost or specification. Those are clearly not the same thing.

The format on a PC fixed it.  I used a camera reader.  I am not sure what class my 4GB card is.  Thanks for the help!
