N70 Memory card

Is anybody else having issue with memory cards being corrupted by their N70. I have now tried two different 512Mg cards from Kingston, ths first worked for a few days before the phone couldnt read it - the second could be read when I first inserted it, but when I went to format the card the phone soft reset and now it is saying the card is corrupted. I can read the card in my PC card reader and I can read the original Orange card in my phone... its all a but frustrating!!!

No problems with ATP or Transcend cards on my N70, FWIW. Been using those for a few months now.

This happened to me using a 3650 (seems to be a common problem in s60 phones).

I used my cheapy 2.99 card reader to format it, and now it works absolutely fine.

Got a Kingston 512 for my N70 too.

Works fine most of the time but I have problems transferring data to it sometimes. Pics seem to be fine but if I try and send something like a mp3 it just freezes and says the phone has rejected the operation.

1 thing i did notice, i formatted my card in another phone and then started using it my N70 which worked perfectly, but when i have formatted it in my N70 it doesnt work very well. Not sure if that helps

Having played around with it quite a lot over the weekend (oo-er missus), it seems to be linked to trying to format the card in the phone and trying to do it with a very low battery.
I have re-formatted the card in my card reader and it seems to be working fine (at the moment) in my fully charged phone...

I've just ordered another 512 card made from lexar card from RS Components which costs £27 GBP, which I thought was pretty cheap. Got it slighty cheaper myself as I'm staff :-)

Will pick it up tomorrow and let you know how it is. I'm hoping I dont have the same issues as my Kingston gave me.

Will post feedback.

Beware: I could be wrong, but I think Lexar doesn't have a dual-voltage (DV) RS-MMC available, but just single-voltage (which will not work at all in the N70).

I've gone through 3 Kingstons in the past and had to return them. They don't have good quality control obviously. I also noticed a speed increase since switching to aData cards. All my friends have been using these cards as well. They're reliable, fast and cheap-highly recommended.

I checked before I purchased that it was DV. Pick up it later so will be able to confirm for sure.

Mine should arrive Tuesday I hope,

Carl,
