I have the 2 gb card installed, and only using about 1 gig. The music has to load each time i start the player, and takes about 10 to 15 secs per song to load! Can take up to 15 minutes to load 220 songs! I already returned 1 upstage because it would only load fast (3 to 5 secs for all 220 songs) on a full charge, if it went down even one bar, it would go back to being really slow again. Charged the new upstage last night, tried it out this morning and its even slower than the first one i had! So...took it back to the sprint store and they checked the card, no problem. Card loaded fine in other model samsungs, motorola, ect... Tried the card out in two other upstages and they both loaded really slow. Is anyone else having this problem? or... (continues)
Make sure you format your card for Windows. I had the same trouble originally, but after reading about it elsewhere and reformatting the card properly (with a PC, not the phone), my music plays as it should.
Don't use the music store to use your music on your card. Go to mass storage and get into to your music form there. Completly different experience. has visuals, no loading time shuffle,repeat mode, makes a world of difference. The music store sucks! I have never used with any samsung I have had or the lg fusic, music store is just a pain in the A**! So go to tools-mass storage and card- and your all set. Save to your favorites for a short cut
I had the same problem when i got my 2g card. you have to redownload the updates for your phone because they are stored on teh card, once you do that the songs will not have to load every time you go to your music. (that way you dont have to go through your content)
