Are you sure that isn't a 4Gb SD card, rather than a 4Gb mini-SD card?

I can't Google anything about a 4Gb mini-SD card being available. The 2Gb mini-SD cards have only just become available after about 6-9 months of hyping on manufacturers web sites.

Good old MobyMemory - my 2Gb mini-SD card arrived today. Not bad at all. And the free USB adapter will make a good home for my old 512Mb card.

Now to fill it ....... :-)

Ah, it is Xmas after all, so I've joined the club and ordered one. Not used them before, but it all sounds good from those who have.

Thanks for the heads up on the deal.

It should at least be seen by your computer so there might be something wrong with the card. If you format it, don't do it NTFS of FAT32, just FAT. But I guess that won't work since your computer doesn't even see it.

tried the mini sd with my c500, c550, mda vario and even xda iis w/ adaptor and it's not working. tried it with my sd card reader on my pc and nothing. tried it w/ usb adaptor and nothing. just couldn't see the card. i do have 1 gb mini sd and it's working, and even the 256mb and 128mb mini sd are working.

call the customer support at mobymemory and they say the card is faulty, and i send it back to them just now, they say that they will send me a new one. the customer service is excellent, very helpful and nice. now i'm just going to sit back and relax and wait for the 2gb mini sd card in few days.

i should have that sd card in 2 weeks co'z i'm off for holiday. that's the reason why i bought the 2gb mini sd, so ican put lots of stuff on my mda vario. and make it as my portable entertainment system. 8)

if i can't have it in two weeks, :cry:

please can i have it before 2 weeks.......... i'm begging :cry:

Well mine turned up, and I'm having problems as well.

I popped some photos onto it via the supplied card reader, and once in the phone it seemed okay.

Then I tried to load it with music, via Media Player and Active Sync (which was very slow) then half way through it said the disc was full, and couldn't do any more.

I then re-formtted it as suggested (to FAT), tried to put music onto it direct using the card reader, and again it got half way and failed.

After that, it stopped being seen by the phone - tried various ones, and only sometimes can be seen by the PC using the card reader.

Of course, now they're shut for the long weekend, so I guess it'll be Tuesday before I can speak to them to sort it out.

Fingers crossed.

For everyone's info, the SD adapter built into my HP/Compaq nc6000 laptop also only saw the first 1Gb of the 2Gb miniSD card. When I did a complete CHKDSK on the card it marked half the card as bad sectors!

However, the MobyMemory bundled USB key adapter worked fine, and after a quick re-format (to remove the sectors marked as bad) I now have the full 2Gb with over 1000 WMA files on the card working on my MDA Vario.

Interestingly the '02 cardbus' SD adapter built into the laptop appears as a PCMCIA/IDE drive when connected, compared to the Moby Memory adapater appearing as a USB mass storage device.

MobyMemory does warn that some older SD card readers can't handle the large memory capacties. I suspect that is why they bundle the adapter with the 1Gb and 2Gb miniSD cards. It's a good adapter too, small enough to fit even when there are other devices plugged into the adjacent slot (on my laptop anyway).
