Well, i tried 3.46 and FAT, but no luck. May be because of Sandisk. But it is known as a good producer, interesting  :|

Did those of you with the 2GB change your registry settings?
Default is 512000. You need to change it to something like 2500000

I have an MPX220 with the 1.49 rom, and I got the 2gb Sandisk miniSD, and I cannot access more than 1gb.

When I used Resco Explorer 2003, and did properties on my storage card folder, it reports:

1.89GB (1936.88MB).

If I try to save something to the miniSD the phone seems to crash, because my Abstract Start menu stops working, and all of the MRU shortcuts on my home screen, become broken... I can only fix it by rebooting the phone.

I think this is a driver problem, and somebody with this phone and who has some driver writing experience should take a crack at this.

I remember when I had an old computer that had an LBA limit, of 4GB, and Western Digital used a boot loader driver call Ez-Drive which translated the 8.8GB drive into a format the old BIOS's could understand....

anyway, this sucks... I hope we can find some kind of workaround...

or maybe If anyone has it working, post your fatfs.dll, and lemme copy it!

Just search the regestry for "512000" using Smartione.

ok peeps i have had my card up to 97% on a 2gb card actual storage space = 19.80mb do not format card just plug and play also when transfering file to it if you do get an error massage that the card is full at the 1gb mark easy solution remove card place in card reader transfer file past 1gb point plug back in phone and the phone just reads it and carries on with full access to all files

I use a pretec 2gb and pcline card reader. i also transfer all file to card via card reader as its about 100 times faster than when connected to the phone.

so answer to question yes 2gb works do not format and use card reader to transfer files and on a seperate note I have never found a card reader with storage limitation ever.

My 2gb sandisk works ok, as long as it's got at least 25% free space. It sees all of the card but once I have less than like 500 megs free it starts saying its full. I'm using asian rom 3.46.

since formatting my card via the phone it now anly see 50% of the files the memory manager reads it is 50% full but go into file manager and open up any folder you add after hitting the 50% mark and they appeay empty but the the memory manager is telling me I now have 65% full remove he card place in PC and the files show up.

but back on the phone they appear blank delete the "blank" files via the phone and memory manager reads that it is still 65% full delete the"blank" files on the PC and memory manager once again read at 50% and all folders and files are visible.

didn't do that till I formatted it I have since re formatted it via the PC which could always read all 100% of the 2GB card but the phone still only shows you 50% of the files on the card yet it shows 100% of folders ie it show the folder title of the album but once open it appears blank

yet the PC shows them as there

PS they are not Hidden in any way.

Setting the registry to 2500000 worked for me, whereas setting it at 2048000 did not (sorry if the numbers are off, I'm tired as hell, just check earlier in the thread). I've had it almost full (47 megs free) and didn't run into any issues. Well a file I transfered was corrupted, but by the transfer (I don't have a dedicated reader, I use the printer connected to my server which is slow and if I don't leave it in for a little bit after a big transfer I get delayed write errors). Not sure why the one number works while the other doesn't. I didn't even format the card after the change.

Weird.

ok i have a test i would like all 2gb card user to do please

i want you to copy as many folders as you can get on to a 2gb card with files in each of these folders whether it be pictures music or video.

fillit right up so that it full.

then using file manager view each folder in turn to see if all the files are view able

any that are not view able rename the folder as unseen1 unseen2 and so on
any that the contents can be seen rename as seen1 seen2

then review the contents via a card reader to ensure the files are in the folders.

lets see just how many people can view the entire files saved on the sd card via their phones.

please also post any reg changes you have made to see if there is a difference

i had i folder with 4 videos in that were all seen plus 15 folders with albums in of which 4 were all 15 were seen,
however only the 4 videos and 5 of the folders showed there contents the last ten folders were seen contents however were unseen so i had 10 marked unseen.

all were visiable via card reader.

card has been formatted to FAT and reg edit done was the change to 250,000.

conclusion roughly 1gb of the card was SEEN the remainder was UNSEEN

Change the registry to 2,500,000 not 250,000. 250,000 is less than 256 mb, whereas the other is greater than 2gb.

btw I still don't know why the number has to be bigger, when it was 512,000 (default) it saw most of the 2gb card (75%), but at 2,048,000 it saw less of the 2gb card (50%).

If you delete the folders that can be marked as unseen, in the resource manager you will see the used amount remains the same. I mean, do not delete the folders on phone, use a card reader instead. Otherwise you will think you can use more than 1 GB, but it is not true. You will have still 1 GB usable data and some more that hidden by deleting operation.

If you perform a disk check, you will find some hidden folders, which are tried to be deleted by the phone's file explorer.

sorry but 2,500,000 is what i changed it to it doesn't show all the sard however my new 2gb card which I have not formatted shows up fine and dandy what i am saying is if you formatt your card you screw it for some reason dont ask me why but it seems the phone can only format it to a 1gb size well kind off it hard to explain just remember this.

DO NOT FORMAT YOUR 2GB CARD....OR ELSE.
