    Atrix not detecting external sd card

    Hi Guys
    Need help urgently. I see many helpfull devs working here.
    I am in similar situation where my Atrix is not detecting/mounting External SD card.

    1. I tried with SD/quick format since The card is readable in PC using card reader but no luck on Atrix
    2. I followed posts and installed romracers recovery for Atrix still no luck.

    Background
    I was happily using Fruitcake from last 6 months and previously CM7RC2 so my device is rooted unlocked and recovery installed. 2 days back I decided to go to CM7 latest nightly so I took all backups removed ext sd card(8GB) since I dedicated it for only music files. Had put CM7.zip on internal memory card and installed through recovery. After CM7 installation I inserted ext sd card and it is never detected/mounted. If i put my sd card in my wife's phone it works well but my Atrix is not detecting any card. Any help greatly appreciated.

    Merry Christmas Guys

    Re: Atrix not detecting external sd card

    I'm afraid it might be a damaged port then. Have you tried with another SD?

    Problem resolved. Seems there is some loose connection issue on memory card holder. I kept phone screen on and tried to fiddle with microsd sliding in and out and at some point it detected. Sorry to bother you guys.

    One of my friend also suffered familiar situation but finally we managed to solve it. I think you should make sure if your firmware supports the storage size of your SD card, and then check if you have chosed a proper mode: FAT32 or NTFS. Try to search some articles about SD card fails to be found by Android.

    What is the best file format for SD card, NTFS or FAT 32?
