Hey, I have an 8gb Kingston SD card (class 4). When I stick it into the computer to format it, all goes well and the computer formats it with ease. I then stick it into my phone (Samsung Beat), only to have my phone say 'Unrecognised. Format?' I click yes to format and after a few seconds, I just get a message telling me that the formatting failed. Since this SD is new, I figured it may have been the phone that I just bought on eBay, so I decided to try my older 1gb SD card. This one works just fine, but it's only 1gb.

What's the deal here?

What format did the computer format the card in, and what operating system are you running on your computer, Mac or PC?
