    If you happened to use an SD card previously used in a Windows Phone 7 device, it wont work. The cards become locked to the device and can not be used (even reformatted) on any other. Only work around is if you happen to have a device which ignores the rules (old nokia n8 phone or maybe some cameras) to format it in, or the original WP7 device to format it from (is there even a way to format the card in Wp7? Maybe thru a bootloader or custom ROM). Secure Digital - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Windows Phone 7 devices use SD cards designed for access only by the phone manufacturer or mobile provider. An SD card inserted into the phone underneath the battery compartment becomes locked "to the phone with an automatically generated key" so that "the SD card cannot be read by another phone, device, or PC".[32]Symbian devices, however, are some of the few that can perform the necessary low-level format operations on locked SD cards. It is therefore possible to use a device such as the Nokia N8 to reformat the card for subsequent use in other devices.[33]

    I have had this problem with the phone not recognising the SD card. Have tried two with no success. Have tried formating the cards on and off the phone and using the phone reset command. All failied.
    So...I had a brainwave and this cured the problem.
    First take the SD card from the phone, then load it with the music files you want stored. Put the SD card back into the phone (which of course still doesn't recognise the files on the card). Then set the phone to store files on the SD card. Then send an email to yourself with a music file attached. The phone picks up the email, then you downloading the music file which downloads to the SD card. This triggers the card into operation and there is not only your downloaded file, but the others that were on the card originally. See if this helps.
