    flashed my Ativ S yesterday to GDR2 , my SD card wasn't recognized afterwards.
    (worked flawlessly with GDR1) then updated to GDR3 (still doesn't detect the sd card)

    tried hard reset and even formatting the card using my pc (the long "way" not quick format)

    but still my phone doesn't detect the sd card and not other sd cards i have.

    any advice would be appreciated.

    thanks !

    No intention to scare you pal, but the Samsung phones have a history of throwing errors with updates.
    GDR 2 messed up its bluetooth.
    You could visit a Samsung Gallery for warranty claim, but then I read this at some threads,
    I guess, you have to wait till the GDR 3 is officially out (I hope you are not out of your warranty till then), or try to roll back (if possible)

    not out of warranty yet, problem came up after flashing to GDR2, GDR3 didn't fix the problem.

    Try formatting the card using the phone, not the PC.

    His phone has to recognize the card before he can format it :/
