    Been having issues with my sd card. I can only seem to copy 2gb to it.

    I copy, say 10GB of songs to the card on the pc through the adapter, I can see and access all 10G. When I put it in the phone, I can only see 2gb...then I put it back in the pc, and can only see 2gb..

    do I chock this up to a cheap (ebay) card..or could there be a bigger problem?

    I have formatted the card in the phone a few times.. but can't get more data on the card.

    I have also tried copying the songs via usb cable with the card in the phone..doesn't seem to make a difference

    Any ideas?

    You got a fake card. I bought one on ebay a while back. Its a 2gb relabled to 32gb. They use a tool to fix the file system to report 32gb. It will even let you copy 32gb to it. Its when you try to read or copy past 2gb that youll notice problems.

    I got this one for mine and it works great, you can't go wrong with the quality and price.

    Newegg.com - PNY 32GB Micro SDHC Flash Card Model P-SDU32G10-EFS2

    $47.99 + Free shipping. PNY 32GB and it's Class 10! The speeds are very fast too!! After formatting you get 29.5GB. Plus, it's an AMERICAN company! Which I like, cause I'd rather support domestic companies and products made here instead of overseas.

    Ironically, your support for domestic companies has landed you a Korean phone. Just something to think about.

    I always go with sandisk, because I use them for my cameras, I just stick with them.

    They have ways (even ebay has pics) to show what is a fake card and what isn't.

    Got my 32gb which I don't use anymore for like 40.00 last year on amazon.
    Class 4.
