The SD port on the phone could be defective. If you can't troubleshoot that yourself, it's going to have to go into a repair shop. (If it's still under warranty, and you didn't jam a card into the port, causing the problem, it's covered.)

Does the card work on the PC or other device ?? Try to format it as fat32 and then put it back to your phone
