Okay, so here’s my issue- I have an 8Gb Fuze+ that when I insert a Fat32 formatted microsd card, complains that there’s a filesystem error and to please reformat to Fat32. When I go to “format” under the settings menu, and try to format the card from there, it complains that it’s unable to detect any microsd card.
Gparted, new partition table, new fat32 partition, throw it in, same problem.
I tried just giving it a partition table and not defining any partitions, and seeing if i could format it then- same issue. I don’t have any other microsd cards to try to make sure it’s not the card, but needless to say, this card works flawlessly on my laptop through an adapter to full SD card size, which then goes into a built in card reader. It also works perfectly in my LG phone, so I doubt it’s anything to do with the card itself.
Google has offered no solutions, first place I checked. Looking around here on the forums and the support page didn’t yield any hints, either.
I updated the firmware manually (I’m on an Ubuntu Linux system), same issue. I got all excited, too, because the release notes for the 1.30.01 X firmware said it fixed a couple issues pertaining to sd cards not being recognized. But no dice- exact same issue, no change. Rebooting the Fuze+ doesn’t help either. When the card is in the device, and the device is plugged in, Ubuntu auto-mounts the Fuze+ and the card, no problem, and I can read and write successfully to both.
I did check permissions of the card, just in case (I know next to nothing about filesystems here, but hey, a “chmod 777 -R” can’t hurt, right?), and that’s not the issue.
I’ve looked about, made sure the songs on the card weren’t showing up despite the errors, and they weren’t- I made sure to make a similar directory structure as on the Fuze+ itself on the card, no luck that way either.
So now I turn to the forums- Is there any help to be had? Am I alone in experiencing this issue? Am I just doing something wrong, or is my device permanently sick?
