    I just got my M3 lite perfect. I'm trying a Kingston 1GB microSD card and keep getting a "Warning! Can not find Card" message. I've tried a wide array of format settings (FAT and FAT32, different sector sizes, not quick but full formats, etc.) and haven't had any luck.

    Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find any pictures of how the back of the M3 is supposed to look with the microSD card inserted.

    As it stands, after my microSD card clicks into place it is flush to the outer edge of the M3 lite case. I am unsure if this is as far in as it needs to be (should it instead be approximately flush to the indented edge of the M3 lite case instead?).

    I took a look at how big the microSD slot is and it seems like it is built to take the card in further, but I cannot push it in any more and do not want to break it. I am planning on getting a small SanDisk card to test it further (even though from what I've read the Kingston card should work), but hopefully someone can tell me if it's not even worth trying and if I should try to get replacement for the M3.

    Thanks in advance.

    you can feel it click into place, maybe you need to reattach the cover?

    I had the same problem. [​IMG] The micro sd card actually goes way way in. My card clicks TWICE. I have the chinese version, but yea. It should be the same. The micro sd card shouldn't be flush with the side of the m3. From the side of the card to the side of the m3 is mebe....3 mm? Oh yea, I also have the kingston 1gb.

    I just pushed it in a bit further than I would normally feel comfortable doing and I heard a small snapping sound as the card slid in further. It now appears to be snapping in and out normally. Everything appears to be working well.

    Thanks!
