Need help Samsung m510 - sd card needs formatting?
I just received my new Samsung m510 phone, and I'm trying to put music on the SD card. Every time I put the SD card in the adapter and insert it into my laptop (a Dell Inspiron e1505), it recognizes it, but tells me that "The disk is not formatted" and asks me if I want to "format it now." Should I do this? Will it hurt the compatibility with the phone? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
The MP3 player on my samsung 510 is only playing out of one speaker both on my headphones and on my speakers. I currently have a 2.5mm to 3.5mm adapter and am playing my music off a 2Gb Kingston SD card. Does anyone know if it is possible to make it play through both speakers and if so how?
Hi, I'm trying to decide whether or not to buy a Samsung 510. I'm pretty keen to connect it to my car stereo in order to play mp3s. Has anyone done this or does anyone have any idea what plugs I need to use between the phone and my stereo? I'm thinking of connecting it straight in to the Aux Input in the front of my car stereo.
other than the model number and the look, what are the real differences between the m500 and the m510? Phonescoops phone comparison shows absolutely no differences between the two, but sprint's pricing is nearly $100 apart....anyone have any answers on this?
Sooo..... Can anyone see a reason to get the 510 right now? With the recent price drop of the the m610 down to $129.99 after the instant rebate why would anyone get this phone? I know the 610 is being discontinued but until that happens or until the drop the price down to the price of the 500 I can't see myself selling many if any of these phones.
i have a friend who has a samsung sync and she just bought my 1g microsd after i bought a 2g microsd from radio shack for about 30 bucks (it was on sale) anyway, she asked me to help her use it, i told her she would first need a usb adapter, but then i realized that there was something about her phone (as well as my m510, for that matter) that i didn't know:
-what folder do music files for the media player (bluetooth) need to be in?
-also, what file format (extension) do they need to be, so that the phone recognizes them?
-while we're on the subject, is it possible to use files on the memory card as ringtones or alarm ringers, and if so, how? any answers to these questions, regarding either the m510 or SYNC, would be greatly apprec... (continues)
i understand with technology advancing as it does,but there are still more phones out there with vga cameras and no sd slots then there are with those features that are basic. since when did having 1.3mp camera and sd slot become basic as we were reminded about 400 times during the video. as was stated when the m510 first hit phonescoop,its a scaled up m500,which isnt basic and its a scaled down m610.
Most of the physical design is nice. It has a good feel to it. It's sleek and fairly thin. Not crazy thin, but not thick at all.
The color scheme is unusual. Ours has blue trim on the inside, but is black on the front and back. If you buy one online that's "blue", don't expect it to be blue on the outside.
The keys are huge and have a great EL backlight that's white, bright, and even. Unfortunately, the keypad is the same exact type as the M610, which I hate. It's just a single perfectly flat surface, with only a slight change in texture to separate the keys.
The prototype we saw at CES had a better keypad. At the time, I thought it was terrible, but somehow they managed to replace a bad keypad with a worse keypad, IMHO. The prototy... (continues)
I like the design and features of this phone, but am concerned about a few things.
First, is the plastic glossy so that it shows fingerprints? Glossy phones seem cool for about 2 days, until you get sick of all the fingerprints and the greasy effect. A good quality matte plastic is way better.
Also, what about basic performance? A lot of reviews for the m500 were luke warm or negative about call quality. I have stayed away from Samsungs ever since I had an a620 that made a high pitch sound in the background while talking. I read one review for the m500 that mentioned the same thing. I wonder if this phone has the high pitch squealing or any other call quality issues. Also, the m500 was said to have poor battery life – has that been im... (continues)
