try reformatting the card as fat. Right click on the card icon in my computer. And do a full format

Hi

If the phone is under warranty, send it to Telegistics. I came accross this not so long ago, and it was accepted as an OBF, but then it was new, they may choose to repair your phone.

Regards

Ben

we appear to be in a loop :-)

take the card to someone else, who has a computer that knows how to make the old fat16 filesystem.
