Hi all,

I'm a proud owner of a MPx220 and want to add a mini sd card, possibly 1 GB. Did anyone try it already? If successful which manufacturer did you take? If only 512 MB work, which one should I take?

Thanks a lot in advance

Mini SD cards from PQI seem to have the best compatibility with this phone. I personally have a sandisk (512mb) and I have a lot of problems. I don't know about 1GB Sd.

I have a 256 sandisk that works fine I thought the phone only supported up to 512 not a gig is that wrong

it can go up to 2 gigs! 

Have you actually tested a 2 gig SD? - I would prefer a 2gb with SDIO (if it was supported of course ;):) )

I just purchased the 60X ATP 256MB card and couldn't be happier! Out od the 1GB cards that are out so far, the one from MobyMemory is the best. It use SLC flash chips. I still have no idea what type of flash chips pqi uses, but that would be my second choice. I wouldn't dare buy a SanDisk!!

I have a mobymemory 1 gig miniSD and it has worked flawlessly since day 1.

Not massively cheap, but definitely worth it.

Yes, intermitantly it will fail to see files on the card (especially after rebooting).

I emailed PQI and they said that they use SLC chips in their upcoming 1GB miniSD.

Mostly I have MP3s on it, but I do have a few video clips as well. I recently bought a card reader, so that's what I use now to copy stuff onto it. Someone had suggested that I reformat the card (FAT16), when they heard of my intermitant problems, but if anything, that has made it worse. It used to be that it only had problems reading from the card right after I rebooted, and once it finally started reading, it would usually work OK. But now it will start working and sometimes fail again without rebooting. I will say that I never had any issues on the original .325 firmware. Also I've seen posts from other people that said that once they went to the unbranded 1.25 firmware, their cards worked fine. Once the 1 gig card become more prevalent, I plan on getting one of those, but it won't be a Sandisk.

I have 3 SanDisk cards....1GB SD card, 512mb and 256mb miniSD cards and I have never had a problem with them. I am guessing some people got faulty cards. I am about to buy a new 1GB SanDisk miniSD. I personally have no problems with them. I have never used a PQI card but I have heard nothing but good things about them...may try to get one to compare with the SanDisk version.

I think the problem is not with the SD cards but with the phones i/o handling.

I have a Ridata 512mb mini-sd and it was skipping some songs with the cingular 1.03 firmware. After I updated to 1.25, it never happened again. It also didn't happen with the 1.33 chinese rom.

You may be right. I suspect that they tightened something up in the firmware, so that it currently only works well with the faster cards. (possibly to conserve the battery?)

It still dosen't change the fact that SanDisk uses MLC flash chips. They created that chip! MLC chips can not withstand the wear & tear of SLC chips.
