    I have installed a 2GB Micro sd card onto the phone and have put music onto it. however when I put the card into the phone and start it, at the home screen a couple of seconds later it restarts only to be in an endless loop. when I take the sd card out the phone operates normally with no restarts. I have the latest update (not GDR2).

    could it be the sd card fault or has anyone experienced any issues like this?

    thanks

    Can you format your SD card and see if it stops the loop?

    Or this SD card is defective for your device, suggest switch to some other SD cards.

    Also take note of which file format you are using, ie exFAT or FAT32.

    thanks for your advice, I bought a new 8gb micro sd card and that works perfect, think I may have had a slightly funny one to begin with.

    Are the file formats different?
