Many thanks for replying RFB.
I have turned off mass storage mode.
I have tried Ubuntu (not working as from a guide it says "because Ubuntu isn't capable of mounting your microSD card from your phone") , minitool partition wizard and Paragon partition manager.
I noticed you did it the Ubuntu way as well. Did you use a USB SD card reader?
It is still coming up with the same problem (notification area saying blank SD card).
I have tried setting both partitions to primary, both to logical and a mixture of the two.
I will keep on trying though
I have just ordered a Micro SD USB card reader
Use minitool partition wizard, from here: http://download.cnet...4-10962200.html
That can mount from the LG, and other phones when you connect via usb, and select "mount" for the SD card.(cnnnect phone, and select "mount" in the notification menus"
Then you will see the phones SD card as a hard drive.
click on the drive name, and then it will jump to a picture of your card, and whats on it(well the size of the partition).
select "delete partition", then apply. - this will clear your card.
Then click on the drive/card, again in the programme, and create a partition.
A menu will pop up allowing you to move a sliding bar to pick sizes, and alter options...you want FAT32, primary, and whatever size you want, so for an 8gig card, say 6.95gig for the FAT32, and the remaining space for Ext2.
Create, first the FAT32 one, and secondly create another one from the remaining space for the Ext2 mode, then apply, and the programme will format the card, and create the two you need.
* BOTH have to be marked as "Primary" *
Then simply unmount the card on the phone..
If you create partitions, and you see "unused space" or extra partitions, like boot sectors on the newly created ones, you've done it wrong.
It can read from mounted cards, from several phones I have tried, and it DOES work.
