The official oprating systems of the HX4700, WM2003 and WM5, do not support SDHC card format. Since most 4Gb "SD" cards are in SDHC format (check the label on your card), the file format of your card is likely to be incompatible with the PDA. Get a 2Gb SD card, or go for a Compactflash card for 4Gb to 32Gb of storage space.
Hello kenac, this may seem like a simple thing, but sometimes the simple things are the last ones we think of. Do you have any data on the 8GB card, if not, you can reformat it in the device and it should be happy. If the device does not have an option to format the card, you can format it in any computer that has a slot for it.
The problem is simply that the Tungsten E2 cannot read SD cards larger than 1 GB. However, there is a solution that will enable it to read larger cards. A driver called PowerSDHC is available from PalmPowerups.com that will enable the E2 to read cards of any size. I'm now running an 8 GB SDHC card on my E2!
The e310 Chipset is SD only, and so does not support SDHC for more then 2GB. You may try non-standard, non-SDHC 4GB cards which are out of specification for SD, but work in "some" SD enabled devices. Depends on device-software...
If the card is a SDHC, its not compatible the axim, it will only take standard SD cards
If its one of the early 4gb cards (which are a hack of the SD standard) its luck of the draw if it will work in any device, the x30i is reported to work with some, but you may need to try several (or find a forum with people who can tell you which ones definitely work) before you find one that works. You could try formatting it with large sectors on a pc, that works for some devices.
There are often issues with these non-standard cards which could cause crashes and data loss even though they may appear to work in the first instance.
They are also usually very slow
The safest solution is to use a maximum of a 2GB card.
If you really need 4gb or more the only way unfortunately is if there is a hacked firmware out there somewhere (but the only one I have seen is for the HTC Universal) or upgrade to a more modern device that supports SDHC which you can currently get cards up to 32GB
Unfortunately, Pocket PC devices with Windows Mobile 2003 OS do not support High Capacity SD (SDHC standard) cards.
However, some companies have created standard SD cards (Not SDHC) with capacities up to 4GB. These, sometimes, not always, work.
I would recommend you to purchase SD cards up to 2GB in size only which is the maximum size the SD standard has defined. If you would like to try the max capacity you can get, you can try some "SD standard extended, but not SDHC" SD cards up to 4GB. If you would like brand names, I could recommend you a few..
