What make, size and Class card is this as Lumia can be picky in this respect?

Re: lumia 520 unable to detect sd card

Did you format the card with the computer?  Full format. not a quick format. Format to FAT 32 or exFAT

Is it an SDHC card?

yes, format on computer. First time with quick format and second time with full format.

Also, download SD Formatter 4.0 for SD/SDHC/SDXC to format the card.

Re: lumia 520 unable to detect sd card

My Nokia 520 would recognise the 8gb sd card. I tried another card-4 gb, but this still did not work. Really fed up and frustrated I decided to reset the phone back to factory settings. Hey presto, this worked!.
