    I also have the N73 with the 2gb card,my card worked without formatting. In menu/tools then memory its showing 1909 MB capacity.In camera mode showing 2659 pictures left on the memory card.Suggest you may have a faulty card.

    I also purchased a faulty 2GB (SanDisk) mini sd card for my N80 which displayed the same 'card corrupted' messsage. After comparing it to the 128MB one I received with the phone, I noticed that the metal contacts were shorter - which makes me think that when it's inserted into the phone, it isn't making a true connection.

    Any ideas on where to buy decently priced mini sd cards which are compatible with the Nokia N80?

    I purchased a SanDisk 2GB miniSD from Amazon.co.uk and so far so good. Phone recognises it no problem.

    I got my 2gb card from them & it works a treat in my N73, so it sounds like the card is incompatable with your phone. :(

    Thanks for your help guys!
    I have finally got round to ordering a 2GB sandisk from the from the 7dayshop. Should be fine - I think the other one I got from ebay must have been dodgy! (fingers crossed).
