Default New media card not recognized

Please Login to Remove!

I just got a media card from Newegg ( - Kingston 8GB Micro SDHC Mobility Multi Kit Model MBLY/8GB - Flash Memory) and it is not being recognized by my Bold or my computer. When I enter the card in my Bold it says "Media Card inserted" but when I go to Options -> Memory it shows "Media card cannot be read. Verify that the memory card is formatted." I can hit the bb button and select Format and choose media card and it looks like it is doing something and then shows an error "Media Card Format Failed".

I have an SD card reader on my computer (1 yr old running Vista Business). I have tried the adapter that came with the card and a spare adapter I have and the USB adapter that came with the card and none of them work. When I insert the card the adapter shows up as Removable Disk (Drive Letter: ) but it says no media inserted. I've tried going to Disk Management and rescanning for disks and everything without any luck. I've also tried on an XP machine with the same results.

I've also tried a 2 GB microSD card that I have and it works in the USB adapter and the SD adapter and in my Bold.

It seems to me that I may have gotten a defective card. Does anyone else have an idea to try before I send it back to newegg?

Default Inserting media card

Just inserted my new card and had the same problem, I think. Anyway, I went through the tutorial and had your result. On double checking the procedures I had thought I had the card in the slot because the outer door was closed, well the media card was not fully inserted, and bingo, a piece of cake after that.
