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?

Re: lumia 520 unable to detect sd 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!.
