You might be making the same mistake I did, it's an easy mistake because the card is so danged small - you have to push it in all the way, until it clicks and stays in all the way. You won't be able to pull it out again within first pushing it in and hearing the click again.

Re: LG Vu- using micro SD card

i also got a 4g memory card and kept getting the card not ready signal after istallation. I found that the card wasnt being in far enough by the battery and put a small piece of plastic that i trimmed from the cards packaging inbetween the card and battery. now my phone recognises that the card has been installed.

Re: LG Vu- using micro SD card

So, my first problem was that I didn't push the micro SD card in all the way....D'oh. But, now that i finally got my phone to recognize the fact that the card exists, I'm having the same problem as everyone else: The music player won't recognize the songs I put on it. I can locate the files through the "other" section in "my stuff," though. I thought the solution was the ID3 tags as mentioned earlier, but that won't work for me. The files are in the default "music" folder.

 

Can anyone offer a different solution, or maybe point out something I may have done wrong?

Re: LG Vu- using micro SD card

it's not just ID3 tag, it can be file name convention as well.  It's a pain but process of elimination...  Add your songs in groups of 10 until you add a group that makes it bomb.  Then once you fix that group, you'll know what to do to other songs.

 

If your first group of 10 songs doesn't show, for a test, name them 0001.mp3, 0002.mp3, 0003.mp3 etc

 

if they still don't show, convert the ID3 tags.  the fact that you see them when browsing means it not a problem with the phone or card.  it's the pickiness of the mp3 music player on the phone.

Re: LG Vu- using micro SD card

Is there any way to copy multiple photos from the phone's memory to the Micro SD Card?

 

I've taken a bunch of photos only to find they were saved on the phone's memory, not the Micro SD Card, and when trying to copy them to the Card so I can use my PC's card reader (no, I don't have the data cable to connect my Vu to my PC) while I can select Multiple Photos, I can only select them with the purpose of Deleting them. There appears to be absolutely no option to Select Multiple to Copy to Memory Card.

 

Well, I'm a stubborn SOB, so I'm going to be sitting here for most of the night, copying photos over one by one, then transferring them from the Card to my PC when (if) the Card is full, then copying more. But if anyone can save my sanity I'd really like to know if it's possible to select Multiple Photos and copy them to the Memory Card.

 

Thanks heaps,

John

Re: LG Vu- using micro SD card

going forward, make sure you change the setting for pictures and for videos to save to the sd card.

 

since you don't have the data cable, borrow a friend's laptop that has bluetooth for 5 minutes and grab/move all your photos that way

Re: LG Vu- using micro SD card

Thanks for the tip. I did change it now so the Camera automatically saves to the SD Card. I might have to pick up a Data Cable, too, as none of our PCs or Laptops have Bluetooth. Re: transferring the photos I'm done now, I fired up iTunes and started playing some songs as I made the 9 "key" presses necessary to move each photo from the memory to the SD Card, and 80+ photos & ~750 presses later...I was done Smiley Very Happy

 

Considering the Vu's camera is just a 2-megapixel camera, when taking photos at the highest resolution some of them still came up pretty good when viewed on my PC's screen. The best were those I'd taken outdoors, or indoors where there was a good amount of ambient light.

Re: LG Vu- using micro SD card

you could also find a cheap usb bluetooth adapter online.. i got one a few years back for about $7 shipped.  more universal than the proprietary data cable, but i'm sure those are cheap on ebay

 

with ample lighting the photos are good for almost any need.  the only problem is the image stabilization...   it blurs easily

How did you change it to the right ID3 tags?
