Okay.. go into recovery and try to format sd card from there. Many users have had problems with pc formatted microsd's. If you're on 4ext recovery try a file system check from tools menu first..it might help.
PS: You can first try to mount the sd card from recovery while usb attached to pc. If windows sees it, it might be a rom or kernel issue.
Let me know how this turns up. Best of luck!

I'm an average user so please correct me if I'm wrong. I went to hboot menu (volume down + power). there are 5 options:
fastboot
recovery
factory reset
simlock
image crc

now if I select recovery as you suggested, then the phone stucks at black screen with the icon of a phone and red exclamation sign. the backlight stays on until I pull the battery. what do you think?

first: STOP PULLING THE BATTERY! you'll end up with a bricked phone: to force a reboot press vol up, vol dn, and power buttons all at the same time!
NEVER EVER PULL THE BATTERY This is very important. Pulling your battery out is the most prominent cause of eMMC bricks.(read this: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1268447)

okay now that this is solved.. So you did not give us full specs. It seems that you are not rooted or s-off. am i right?

then, what i just told you is useless unless you are willing to s-off and root. unfortunately i don't think that there is another way to determine if you're facing a hardware or software problem. IMHO it's software related as all those that mentioned this issue here on xda seem to be on stock rom..
there might be a way to check the card via adb but im not familiar with adb that much.. maybe someone else here might have a clue..

anyway, if you do decide to go for s-off'ing which i highly recommend you can find all you need in the general section (but be sure to check your hboot version and read twice before doing)

best of luck!

a guy from androidforums.com have given me a way to " reset the diagnostic monitor on
the phone which could be stopping the phone
from recognising SD cards" by SDK with some commands. though I've never used SDK but I'll try. but if failed I'll of course root and s-off. please help me then.

Since warranty isn't an issue, ROOT is strongly suggested - if only for the purpose of Custom Recovery

Agree to the above. I'd recommend 4EXT recovery. . .

I've decided to root. can anyone kindly answer some questions please:

1. what is the benefit of rooting,other than solving my problem? by googling,I found that the foremost benefit is installing custom Rom. but I'm not interested in custom Rom. I love sense interface. will rooting exclude me from any coming system update i.e. ICS?
2. why do s-off. is s-offing a prerequisite for rooting?
3. I'm only an average user and I've no intention of being "superuser" by being rooted. so if I want then is it possible to get back to exactly the same unrooted, s-on position,as if nothing happened!? I have heard about gold card. is it the only solution?
4. and finally how wood rooting help me soling my Blank SD card problem?

***please answer the questions considering the my phone is NOT supporting micro SD card.
