| | 32 GB SD card troubles

I just purchased a 32GB micro SD card for my 8530 Curve, and for the life of me I cannot get it to work. I consider myself fairly literate when it comes to computers, but nothing I've tried has been able to work.
Essentially, it goes like this. I put the card in the phone. It says the card must be formatted. If I click yes, the formatting works about 75% of the time. When that is complete, it says there are errors on the disk. When I choose repair, it shows itself as repairing for about two minutes, then most of the time the phone reboots itself!??! As soon as it comes back online, it tells me I need to format the card again. Over and over. So, I tried using my computer to format, and repair, and it still will not be accepted in my phone. I even purchased a USB card reader in case my standard card reader didn't read SDHC.
I've literally spent the last three evenings trying to get this to work. I have all the current versions in my phone. v188.8.131.524. Any suggestion out there?? Any patches or plug ins that would make this work? I primarily use my phone for and MP3 player while at work, and my 2GB card is just to small. I have never had an issue with the 2GB card ever. Works like a charm every time. The 32GB card is a brand new SanDisk. Could it be F*&^ed from the factory?? Any help is greatly appreciated.
