SD memory card issues

I've had my Trance for a few weeks and I'm using a 8GB microSD card that worked great on my other phone. But with the Trance, the card seems to be causing all kinds of problems. After trying to upload music onto the card about 100 times (no joke), it seems that when I get past the halfway point of the card's memory (about 4GB), strange things happen. First, when I go to the library, the playlists just disappear for no reason. Then from that point, the phone just completely freezes and the only solution is to remove the battery.
Now I know that you may think that it's a bad card, but I get some problems with music loaded into the phone's internal memory, also. Although they don't seem to be as critical.
Whenever I call Verizon, they always ...

The manual for this phone states that it will accept up to a 16GB SD memory card - but then states that only a 2GB card is recommended as the phone "may have difficulty" in recognizing the extra memory.

Thanks Cat. I was beginning to think that I was alone. Verizon seemed to think so, too. The problem for me is that I already exchanged a another phone to get the Trance. So when I called about the problems with the Trance, the guy @ Verizon told me to take the entire 30 days and see if it clears. If not, then I could do another exchange. However, when I did call again a few days later, a different guy told me that I can only have one exchange. The inconsistency is unreal!!! So after much arguing with a supervisor, they just sent me another Trance. Big Deal!!! Well, I did manage to get a little more music on the new Trance (just over 4.5GB), but I'm afraid to go any higher. So much for buying an 8GB card. It still is doing funny things like d...
