Dear All,

As a newbee (I bought the phone 2 days ago) I may ask this second time but I still can not find "Storagelimit" string in my REGEDIT. My rom seems to be 1.150.0.0. The only strings I have in "HKLM/software/microsoft/shell/lowmem is:

ProgramMem
ResetDivision

What can be the problem?

Thanks

I don't think all roms include the string, but for most of us adjusting it didn't help. At least not for good. Of course you could always add it, I doubt you would be doing any harm.

My phone can access 1 GB data but also can not write if its full over 512 MB. So I need to try it. Thank you for your reply.

2GB miniSD cards don't work in the MPx220.

I've tried:
TopRAM 120x 2GB miniSD
A-Data 60x 2GB miniSD

They both don't work. Yes I have the registry setting.

Only the first 1GB can be read properly.

Partitioning, formatting to FAT32, or using the Panasonic SD Formatter doesn't help.

Anyone who says their 2GB miniSD card is working is either a newbie, mistaken, or misinforming to generate sales.

I wouldn't go so far as to say those are the only 3 types of people saying their 2gb card works. But I will say I have yet to see anyone with any kind of reliability say theirs works. It's usually people who've only made a handful of posts (or in some cases just the 1). Either way, they just don't work for 99% of us.

I use the Sandisk 1GB miniSD card and it works great... its 98% full and reading and writing are fully available at the same speed as they ware when the card was empty... it has never been formated.
I also have a 512MB miniSD Trancend and it also works fine...

I have tried many ROMs (v1.25+) and the 1GB fully worked with all of them...
The fastest read/write speed was archived on v1.53...

I will soon try with a 2GB card...

ps: English is not my native language so please excuse any spelling or grammar errors.

Don't waste your money. The 2gb will not work.

Hi!

Are there any news on the 2Gig issue?

Would be to nice if somebody found out something in the meantime.....

btw:

the tweaking with the "storagelimit" in registry does not look like it got anything to do with a "storage card limitation" 1st: 512.000 arent 512MB but 512KB, so it didnt have a connection to the storage card size and 2nd there is somethin like "lowmem" in the path...so guess what it is good for....


ciao,

flunserl

I saw a post on MGN where a person is using a 2GB. I assume you can use any size since it's basically a cardreader. The 512 limit is just a manufacturer listed limit since that's all that was available at the time they released the phone. There are numerous people using the 1GB cards.


My 2GB works great.

If you can read and write to the full 2gb congratulations you got lucky. For most of us though it just won't work. The only thing I regret about the 2gb card though is that I didn't keep it. Now that I'm planning on getting a mda the extra space would've been nice.

I've read isolated incidents of 1gb not working, but I don't think it's a widespread problem (I only remember seeing 1 person post about the problem). So 1gb should work fine.

I can read and write to my whole 2GB Kingston card. In fact, I only have about 10 megs free on it. It's full of videos and MP3's. But I'm giving it up, too slow sometimes, buggy, freezes now and then and sometimes the USB connection doesn't work, microphone sucks... so I gave up and got a KRZR. Much better quality, can still have mp3's and music videos on it, bluetooth works great and the call quality is 10x better than the 220.
