Solved Nokia 108 Phone doesn't show full capacity of 8GB SDHC card

July 20, 2014 at 09:54:00
Specs: Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit, Intel core-i7-2637m / 8GB DDR3
I've an 8GB sdhc memory card(confirmed 7GB+ capacity as i used it to install games in my lappy without dvd drive). i'm using it in my nokia 108 for music, the phone stays in my car connected to aux of audio system all the time. The problem i'm facing is whenever i fill the card above 3.7-3.8 gig, the phone refuses to run music player, play videos and i get memory full mxg upon opening camera. i repartitioned the card using diskpart and formated it using sdcardformatter but the problem is still here, i'm wondering if the problem is with the card or phone although nokia's site says that the phone supports mem cards upto 32GB.
any solution????
Posting it in android as rooted android users are more experienced in such matters.

Might want to try a new card. Maybe there's something quirky with that one. Most of the time you'll want to format the card in the phone/camera in which it's to be used.

(Looks like it got kicked out of the android forum.)

✔ Best Answer
When you check the capacity of the SD card while in the phone, what capacity shows up?

Is the SD card a class 4 or 10?

See the link below which states a 4GB SD card is available as an accessory. The phone may not be capable of fully using an 8GB card.

the phone does not have the option to format the card or view current capacity.

card is class 6.

and the phone should support cards upto 32GB as stated in spec sheet here's the link.

Those specs do NOT state the phone supports class 6 SD cards. There are class 4 cards that are 8GB and more.

I suggest you contact Nokia and ask.

class just represents the max speed of the card, like when u are creating HD videos, phone needs to write them to the card else all the ram would fill up really quick. it doesn't have to do anything with capacity, and yes i will contact nokia. what i think actually happening is that my phone has only 4MB ram so it'll only save enough data in the card that it can keep a track of, like a list of all files in its ram.

Are you sure your phone won't format the card? Even my cheapass samsung wafer does that. I don't think I've ever met a phone that won't.

yup, nokia series 30 phones didn't even came with mem card support before, then started coming with read only and delete only, now it is the first which can recieve files using bluetooth and record videos, pics to the card. there isn't option to format the card, it has to be preformatted, i'm thinking about creating 2 partitions and copying the data that is just backup to the 2nd and use first for phone.

Does the phone manual give any instructions about formatting the card? For example when the card I use is formatted on the phone it creates separate folders for pictures, video and music. I'm wondering if yours is expecting something like that.

Nope, phone creates these folders itself if camera is used. other data remains untouched, another thing i tried was to create a 6 gb partition and leave the rest as unallocated space. it worked alright. so i'm trying to do same with a 7 gig partition(7.44 gig total) i'll create another partition on when it starts to work and throw the files not needed in phone there.

problem solved, apparently, phone can't keep track of empty space correctly cuz when the counter reached 0 i took a pic, it didn't save it saying memory full, but after that the counter started showing 999+ pics and 1:10.05 video(that it shows with an empty card).

Do you know how it's partitioned? I'd expect it to be fat32 And are you sure they're going into folders and not in the root directory? If by chance it's fat16 and the files are being placed in the root directory there's a problem with saving a bunch of files even though you have enough space for them. Fat16 would also limit partition size. Here's one discussion of that:

i create partition in linux, unlike windows, it allows to create more than one partition in removable devices, and i've downloaded a special driver(hitachi) to view multiple partitions in windows. and it is formatted to fat32, fat16 doesn't support partitions above 2 gb
