Asha 203 does not regognize 16 GB microSD card

My daughter is a proud owner of Nokia Asha 203 since x-mas. She asked me do buy a memory card and I took a 16 GB class 6 one (from Samsung). When I put the card in the phone, it does not recognize it:

- I have copied some MP3s and they are not detected. When I choose "Memory library details" from the media player, it says 

Memory card: (unknown)

- When I plug in an USB cable and choose mass storage mode, the phone says "Insert memory card to continue"

 

I have tried with an older card - 4 GB class 4 - and it works like charm, the phone detects and plays MP3s from it. I have tried putting the 16 GB MircoSD in another player (in fact, one cheap chnese player) - works just fine. 

 

I have updated to the latest firmware: 20.52 from 27-09-12. Did not help. It seems to me that Asha 203 cannot handle 16GB MicroSDHC. Can anybody help with this?

Have you tried to check if the memory card that you have purchased are working? try inserting the memory card to other device and see if it will work. Also, try to check if you are inserting the memory card properly. You may also try to access the files of the memory card via PC (using a card reader) and then make a backup for all of the files on the memory card then try to format it.

As i wrote in theninitial post, I have tried putting the 16 GB MircoSD in another player (in fact, one cheap chnese player) - works just fine

 

It also works fine on the card reader attached to my PC.

 

I'm curious if this is common problem for this phone, or is it just mine

Then try formatting it to the Fat 32 File system from your PC. But before formatting besure to copy the files to your Computer's memory as formatting erases al the data on your memory card.

Please give some kudos if it worked!
