Reduced Size MMC cards for Nokia 6630

I did something silly yesterday afternoon.  I went on a bit of a buying spree and, in addition to Logitech speakers to replace the pair I blew, I bought a 256MB RS-MMC for my Nokia 6630.  The only problem is that my phone doesn’t pick up the card at all.  I returned it to the shop I bought it from and they are trying to work out what the problem is.  In the meantime I have done a little research and it turns out (and I did know this), the Nokia 6630 works with a DUAL VOLTAGE (1.8v) reduced size multimedia card and not the normal reduced size multimedia cards which run at somewhere around 2.7v to 3v.

It seems that a number of people have this problem (based on searches that bring people to this site) so here are a few links which may be helpful:

Apparently, Samsung has manufactured a range of dual voltage RS-MMC cards.  They put out a news release in March 2004.

The bottom line is that you should be careful when you buy a RS-MMC because it may not work.  Check it is a dual voltage card first and that it will work in your Nokia 6630.  This applies to all phones that use memory cards – make sure you are buying the right one for your phone.  You don’t want to wind up with an expensive card you can’t return and have no use for.

  1. Nokia 6630

    Since my earlier post I did a little digging around and it seems that the Nokia 6630 is an excellent phone. It is basically a pretty good upgrade on the Nokia 6600 with a whole host of new and improved features.

  4. Hi, thanks for that info, however i have a new 6630, with the original 64mb Rs-mmc card, works fine for a short while, but then has problems accessing the card. I have looked on other websites to see if this is a common problem, and i have found that some are experiencing this, however i have not seen a solution.

    So if anyone can give some insite on to this, whether it is a model problem, or the 6630 in general, i can go and get a refund! Unless it can be sorted, as it is a wonderful phone

    Thanks

  8. Im also a proud but also disapointed new owner of the 6630. after 3 weeks, “memory card corrupted” came out and it refuses to be formatted. So i go out and look for a replacement. Guess what, none available here in the philippines until who knows when, not even in the NOKIA centers! So as of this writing im stuck with the 10mb phone memory. My question is: why does Nokia come out with a super phone and limit its own capabilities (high res cam, etc. with only a 64MB?)with a rs-mmc thats not even commercially available and not even reliable

  9. There seem to be quite a few problems with the memory cards and the 6630s. I don't know why these problems are occurring, unfortunately. I will hopefully have a chance to do some digging around and if I uncover anything, I'll be sure to post it straight away!

  24. hi,
    i also have the nokia 6630 and oh my god it is awsome, abit bulky but its ok i dont mind a brick lolol.
    i have had some problems but i have solved them, iv had viruses and all sorts now i have a new problem.
    i have installed a application for 7610 which doesnt work for my phone and causes it to function incorrectly, eg:
    when using video record says function not supported. and also when accessing web says: Web unable to perform operation.
    as i installed the app on my MMC all i did is ejected the mmc and my functions worked again, re-inserted the MMC and same problem.
    so i know its a app or a process that runs from the mmc that causes this..
    i have tryed to formatt the mmc within the phone
    organizer>memory>options>format mmc. This function will not work.
    so i inserted the mmc into a card reader and formatted this way.
    worked :d
    also i deleted the system folder from my mmc within FExplorer. any problems with viruses or applications just e-mail me ill get back to you hope this information helps…..

  28. My twinmos 256mb dv rsmmc worked fine in my nokia6630. I just bought a 512mb kingston. phone find it. formats it. but when I wanna copy my old files to the new mmc it gives error on certain files. like the ones with more then 3 letter in extentions. Im guessing this is caused by the fact that the filesystem isnt Fat16. anyone know how I can format the mmc without a cardreader?? like using a app on pc or soemthing?

  32. First of all, sorry for my English (i am an italian boy afterall 😀 )

    hell yeah, i own a 6630.

    in fact, i have buyed it about 3 hours ago.

    the mmc supplied with the phone just plain SUCKS.

    if i keep the mmc in the slot,

    1-i switch on the phone and just appears the “nokia” splash logo, and nothing else, like in a loop.

    2-i can't do ANYTHING! it just keeps saying NOKIA NOKIA NOKIA ecc.

    BUT, the funny part of my experience: if i take off the mmc, the phone MAGICALLY starts working! and, if i put the mmc in the phone again, it locks! like in the beginning!

    Please, Help MEEE 😀 😀
