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.

Partitioning doesn't change anything. I tried it and the second 1 GB is still unusable through phone.

For the reformatting card, I tried HP format tool. It also brings the card to the original condition, even it was partitioned. But problem remains there.

And I tried several ROM versions with above suggestions.

Same here. Used Panasonic sd formatter as suggested in HowardForums.com

Any Microsoft guru's out there?

This is definitely a simple solution to resolve if someone knows how to work with this thing.

Yes... We already know that it will say there is 2gigs available. BUT until you actually can put 2gigs worth of info on the chip without any error messages, you are not any further along than the rest of us. So, see if you can and get back to us.

Mine is working fine, with 1 small flaw. Once there is less than 500 megs free I can't delete or move files using smart explorer or file explorer. But I can on my computer when I connect with activesync, so it's not a big deal.

Since my Sandisk is flaky I'm going to order an adata from newegg as soon as they have more in. I'll report back with if it works better than sandisk.

Well newegg sold out too fast for me to catch one so I ordered from zipzoomfly. Since I got the same price with free shipping I splurged and added on the $2 for 2day. I got the card today (about 5 hours shy of 2 days actually), but it looks like its defective. Not only is the phone having major issues, but so is my card reader, which never had a problem with the Sandisk. I emailed for an rma so hopefully I can get a replacement by this time next week.

btw if anyone else wants to tempt the memory gods newegg has gotten more in (and dropped the price) and I think zipzoomfly still has some.

I bought my miniSD 2GB the last saturday, and it arrived today. The PC, nor the MPx220 can't even recognize the damn thingy. It even got stucked on the mobile phone, and I almost break the whole thing and all. I even inserted it on my Kodak digital camera, and she doesn't even open or recognize the chip. What can I do? Or what should I do? :)

By the way... is it normal for the cellphone to always have in it's Resourse Manager's Card Storage stats "Unknown"?

PD: I made some scratches on the bottom of the card, so I don't know if I can get a replacement for it.

Solution to problem : be carefull when you buy 2gb or 1gb sandisk miniSD - it should have "Made in Taiwan" writen on the back and also is should have a white area on the back...if it doesn't then it's the original one and that's why it crashes and other problems apear....Remember it looks perfectly the same on one side and different on the other side....and if you open it ,you will find a chip that says "samsung" on it...

Oh crap! :) That too? Well, mine does not says a thing. It just says in white MiniSD 2GB and that's pretty much it. I am going to kill myself. Well, I will see what I can do.

Quite a few card readers can not see 2GB cards, the inbuilt one on my laptop will not see my 2GB card, so I use the miniSD USB adaptor from www.mobymemory.com

Wait... is it microSD or mini SD? Because I visited that link you gave me and the compatible cards for the MPx220 are microSD even though everyone and everywhere say that the slot is for mini SD. But... my card is mini SD, and got stuck really bad inside the phone. I am so confused now.

I got my replacement from zipzoomfly and while it works fine on my computer it has the same problem on my phone. Once it's about 3/4 full I start getting error messages about can't find the sector. Hopefully I can get my money back.

btw I checked mobymemory a few weeks ago since they guarantee compatability, but it showed microsd cards for the mpx220. Being the helpful guy that I am I wrote an email to inform them of the error. A week or so goes by and I get a reply saying there are no errors, that memory is tested with that phone. I pull up the page and they had fixed it. I went back tonight (if I can get that refund I was thinking about ordering from moby, depending on how much shipping to the US would be) and it again lists microsd. I dropped them another email, and attached a .mht copy of their page plus a link to the specs on motorola's site. We'll see if they can now fix their error permanantly or if they'll again email me saying nothing is wrong.

I sent my replacement back to zipzoomfly for a refund. I also contacted Sandisk directly about my first 2gb card since according to their site it will work with the mpx220. I sent it back the same day. Hopefully my replacement from Sandisk will work. If it doesn't the replacement will be going on ebay and I'll be trying out a top ram brand card (I've heard good things). Either way I'll post back here.
