My Phone cannot detect my 32GB SD card, My Phone is a Samsung Brightside. whenever I put the card in, it states “remove and insert again”. It does this every time I do it. Please help.

    Well, it's one of two things. Either the card is faulty, or the card reader on the phone is. To see where the problem is, plug the SD card into a computer (make sure the reader supports 32GB cards) and see if it works. If it doesn't, try to format it. If that doesn't work, your card's duff. If the card works on the computer but not on the phone, it's the phone that's at fault and you'll need to get it repaired.

    What specific type of microSD card do you have?

    Since the phones manual states up to 32GB I would assume it only supports microSDHC cards.
    If you happen to have a microSDXC it may not be compatible.
