Why my MicroSD card is not recognized by Lumia 820?

The question is in topic. The card is for 32Gb Class 10, first it was in FAT32, then I formatted it to exFAT.

No clue why phone is not seeing it at all.

@microsd

 

Although it would depend upon size of media files intended have you tried formatting in NTFS?

There are no issues inserting and removing microSD, push the memory card in until you hear a click, then pull the card out?

No, the card is perfectly "clicks" in and "clicks" out.

Have you tried a different memory card as know on good authority that no issues inserting 16GB class 10 which was recognised it without issue without formatting being necessary.

It happened to me too.

I bought a Kingston Micro-SDHC 32GB, Class 10

and Lumia 820 didn’t recognize at all no matter what I have tried - soft/hard reset.

 

I exchange the memory on the store with a different brad

Samsung MicroSDHC 32GB, Class 10

and now works perfectly.

 

So.. be carefully when choosing the memory, since Lumia 820 is not compatible with all of them.

 

Cheers,

Claudiu

Re: Why my MicroSD card is not recognized by Lumia 820?

Does anyone know if the Lumia 820 supporsts MicroSD 'XC' cards.  All the 64gb ones seem to be XC and not HC and I'm not sure if these are supported or work.

 

Thanks

Yes, 820 recognises SanDisk 64GB microSDXC.

Re: Why my MicroSD card is not recognized by Lumia 820?

I just went out and bought a brand new Patriot Memory MicroSDHC 16GB, Class 10. It didn't work. I'm going to try and exchange it for one made by Samsung or SanDisk.

 

I sure wish Nokia would elaborate on exactly what these "compatible memory cards approved for use with this device" are.

Lexar 32gb class 10 high speed NOT Working, might have to find someone to swap it with. Unless nokia can elaborate, or let us know if a software update will fix these compatibility issue.

Try with a lower speed microSD, I believe Class 6 is about the limit which can be handled. Class 10 is an unecessary and expensive overkill.

Class 10 is too much 4 0r 6 is perfect. If your phone does not recognize them reset device.
