    pull the card out check the contacts, then put it back make sure you have the contacts facing the correct direction and make sure it is pushed in all the way , sometimes they have a spring load action and you need to push it in till it clicks

    Better bet would be to plug it into your computer and see if windows recognizes it if not its the card if so your phone is jacked. Did the original card work

    I'm having similar problems as well. I've had the Arix for a week now and its been working fine. I connected it to my PC to add a couple files onto the the internal phone storage. Now my phone is not reading my SD Card. When I connect it to my PC it connects and read without a problem.

    I've unmounted and re-mounted both cards. Rebooted my phone a few times and nothing. What else is there to do? I you can see I'm new to this.

    I'm having this issue as well.

    Under settings, everything is greyed out for any sd card i put into it. THese cards work in another phone (captivate). When i place these cards in the atrix and then try to see if the computer can even regocnize them, through the phone, the comp only sees the internal storage

    I also ran into this problem. Lots of reformatting and trying on different devices.

    Finally I figured it out: You have the JAM THE SUCKER IN THERE, almost to the point where you're worried you're going to hurt something.

    Once I really pressed and wiggled the microSD card into the slot, it started working. You'll know it's fully in because there's actually a tiny bit of space between the end of the card and the flap that's supposed to hold it in.

    I tried this but my Atrix still doesn't recognize the card. Both the options are greyed out in Settings. I can tell the card is in as far as it will go because the little nib extension on the side of the card is up against the metal holder in the phone. There is a very tiny (approx 0.25mm) gap between the memory card and the rubber flap that holds it in, but my phone still can't see the card. Should I get an exchange?

    I am having the same issue. I have tried reformatting and it just says "checking for errors" the same message that I got before I reformatted. I can put the SD card in other devices and computers and it works just fine. I have jammed the card in as far as I can and it won't recognize it. Could it be the phone?

    Unfortunately, it didn't work. I tried both NTFS and FAT formatting and none were recognized.

    Do you mean the phone says "checking for errors?" I'm definitely leaning toward it being an issue with the phone, as the same memory card works flawlessly on a Captivate. I tried formatting the card on the Captivate but the Atrix still didn't recognize it.

    Any other suggestions?

    So after spending an hour with AT&T customer service trouble shooting my SD card issue - they are sending me a new phone. Looks like it is a problem with the reader....not my card or the OS.

    Yah the flap does nothing. I ended up pushing it in using my finger nail you nail breaks you pushed too hard...
    Stupid setup. Mines failed once already. Suddenly became ' damaged'...i think my phone got really got one day, someone else had the same issue.
    But a for inserting the card, push till you think youre going to break it.

    You have to take out the sim card and the battery. Then you put the sd card in. Then put the sim card in. And then the battery. If u cant find it the sim card its right above the battery. I hope that works!
