    Hey all, I just bought an enV recently, and I want to use a MicroSD card with it. I have one that I bought off an import site for use with a mod card (don't worry, it's irrelevant to this), so it was not directly from a cellphone provider.

    Anyway, my problem is here, when I insert the phone flips out. It restarts itself, but not fully. It keeps showing the Verizon startup sceen over and over.

    The MicroSD card has no files or folders. And I ran a "CHKDSK", so the card isn't corrupted.

    What can I do? Are there special drivers or something? All help is appreciated.

    the only suggestion i have for you is to buy another microsd card. . .from a trusted maker in the cards.
    try a sandisk microsd card. my friend bought a 1gb sandisk card for his env, and everything worked out just fine with it.
    i've also had good luck with walmart branded microsd/sd cards (they should have a sticker saying that thier exclusive to walmart on the packaging). . .they're made by a company called PNY (they also make nvidia graphic cards. . .not sure what else they make). i've used a regular sd card for my digital camera for over 2 years now with no problems, and my dad got a microsd card for his phone (a razr) about 2 months ago, with no problems.
    their a really good deal as well. . .you can find a 1gb microsd card for about $20 there.

    i've always been a bit skeptical on buying really cheap things on ebay, from a company i've never heard of.
    thnx.

    Hmm that is so wierd that it would react like that.
    Hmm. I would guess that it is not compatable possibly?
    Maybe its corrupt?

    I would insert it into your computer and re-format it.
    Maybe that will be the fix. Maybe try the card in another phone?
    Maybe try another card?

    You can get a San Disk 8GB Micro SD Card with a usb adapter at Radio Shack for $39.99. I bought one there, and it works very well. That's the best deal I could find on one. I've got mp3 files of every book of the Bible on it, and it takes up less than 2GB of the 8!

    I'm using a 2 GB San Disk product but have no luck - the phone does not recognize it as there, and just repeats "card not inserted" in every menu option I try. One guy wrote in a forum that the phone doesn't recognize anything bigger than 1GB . Anyone know if that's true?

    I'm using a 2GB in mine, and it's worked just fine in both my enV and enV 3.
    Maybe there's something wrong with your disc?
    Are you sure it's in the right way/all the way? Is the SD port clean?

    Have you tried going into Settings & Tools > Memory > Card Memory > Format?

    I tried it one day, and it said it didn't recognize my SD card, a couple days later, it works fine, might've just been a glitch.

    Try formatting it before you insert it into your computer.
