I have two SD cards and each is supposed to hold 2gb. But they actually only hold a little over 1 gig. I need them to hold at least close to 2gb is there anything I can do to format it or something?
I've previously used them for my cannon camera and now I want to use one of them for a digital frame. Actually I am using it but it's only got half the pictures I want on it. I noticed this problem when trying to copy pictures from my PC to the card, it copies some and then errors out. When I then put that card in my camera the camera says memory card full.
Yes, you can format, if you can get your card to show up as a drive on your pc through usb cable you should be able to right click the drive then choose format .. You will loose all info on the card though!!
Either that or i believe there maybe some dodgy cards being made. For example they may say they hold 4gb and show up on computers as 4gb but actually have considerably less space.

The 4 gig card is the problem. I bought a 4 gig for mine and had the same problem. My wife had a 1 gig and I tried it in my phone and it worked fine. So I traded with her. Made a file on the computer to offload all her stuff, and reload mine. It sucks you can't use a larger card, but it is what it is!!
I would think it is having more trouble with the adapter than the actual card. It could also be the storage size of the card that is the problem as well. Try a regular 2GB SD Card and see if it works. If it does, then it is probably just the adapter.
The Pantech Duo does not support anything over 2 gig, unfortunately. The only option is to purchase a 2 gig card. If you have info on a 4 gig you want to transfer over, you would have to upload to your computer and transfer to the smaller card.
Mem cards are added as storage cards and do not add up to your iPaq RAM.
You can use mem cards to add up space to install applications. (ie. it is something similar to installing a new Harddrive on your PC). However the physical RAM of your iPaq cannot be extended.
PocketPC programs have small RAM requirements so your PDA's built-in RAM will suffice.
As far as the maximum card size if I understood your question right, if your iPaq comes with Windows Mobile v5 or earlier, it supports SD cards up to 2GB and perhaps some non SDHC standard SD cards up to 4GB. If you can upgrade to WM6, then WM6 supports SDHC cards, so you can install >4GB cards.
Try to format the SD 2GB card with Fat32 to some volumes so u will have multiple drives on the same single SD card.
You can do it via card reader and format command from your PC.
If this does not help it is possible that the device can not read big size 2GB SD cards.
