Background: I have a Samsung Focus, i917, Windows Phone, that is faulty, and I'll *hopefully* get a refund from DX.  When I purchased it, I also got a class 6 32Gb micro-SD card - giving the phone a really nice 40Gb memory all up. 

In preparation of returning the phone to DX for inspection, I've reset the phone, and then removed the memory card.

I now have a useless 32Gb micro-SD card.  My camera won't format it (card is locked), and Windows won't even see it.  (I've found out now what the 'S' in SD means now! - MS use the SD-card security feature to lock the card (as well as proprietory formatting it)).

I've discovered that (only?) a Nokia N8 can format the card and make it useable again...

If you're in Otautahi (ChCh) and have a Nokia N8, I'd love to hear from you.

Cheers,  Duncan.

If you don't find anyone PM me. I'm in Wellington but should have an N8 somewhere that doesn't have any use to me.
