I recently bought a 2gb Transcend MicroSD card for my Motorola v360v. The phone will recognise that the card is there but throws up a failure message when I try to format it. Despite the stated 512mb SD card limit on these phones, I've heard of people who are succesfully using 1gb and 2gb tf cards on the v360v.

There is a "huge" amount of information on the net about how this is done but I'm not a technically minded person and, admittedly, a little lazy about doing research on this kind of thing. So I'm wondering if anyone can shed any light on this.

To date I have tried formatting the SD card as FAT16, this is supposed to trigger the phone into recognising an unsupported format and spontaneously causing it to reformat the card.....but not in my case it seems. Other phone details:

Boot version: 08.D0
SW: R4513_g_08_B7_ABR

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Perhaps you should stick with the 512 MB cards if using a larger one requires some hacking and research?

That would be too easy :)

I'll just keep googling until I find what I need. Thanks anyway.
