Re: Trying to insert a 2gb expansion card into my palm
A lot of palm haldhelds only support SD cards up to 1gb. The 2gb and up ones are not supported. So check your manual and figure out waht the maximum size of sd card is in your palm, or try a smaller size SD card.

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.
If the sdcard is the right type and size all you need to do is fully insert it into the slot. Its spring loaded so it will pop up if it isn't quite far enough in. It should only fit one way.
Generally the LD likes 2gb and smaller sdcards , it can use bigger such as 4gb but that's when you can be hit or miss. That depends on brand and sd version.If you search for a list of LD compatible sd cards you should find out what card to use or buy.
Make sure your card is an "SD" card and not "SDHC" which means you can only use expansion cards up to 2GB only. There are, however 4GB SD cards, but are now either hard to find or are more expensive. There are SDHC drivers around but you have to pay for those.
Problems inserting expansion cards, or keeping them in your device, may have a simple solution. Try these first:
* Make sure the expansion card is facing the correct way. See the handbook for your device for illustrations.
* Expansion cards do not fit into the slot if not oriented properly. If a MultiMediaCard (MMC) slides all the way through, it does not operate correctly. Make sure to fit cards carefully in the slot.
* The mechanism of the expansion slot is called "push-push." Much like a glass cabinet door, you push to insert the card, and then push it in again to get the mechanism to release. Expansion cards do not need to be forced out of the expansion slot.
* Though most expansion cards are notched at the top for removal with a fingernail or other such object, removing the card this away may damage the mechanism. Use an object only when a push fails to release the card. Please be aware that you could damage your handheld if you remove a card improperly, or insert objects other than expansion cards into the slot.
* Expansion slots damaged by forced removal of the card do not release the card when pushed, and could refuse to ?lock? the card in the slot. Expansion slot damage can only be repaired by having the entire handheld serviced.
* Some expansion cards labeled as SD or MMC do not actually conform to the SD or MMC specification.
The Palm OS "Find" application does not look at the content in SD or MMC expansion cards inserted in your handheld. It only searches through data stored in the internal memory of your handheld.
There are many third-party searching utilities available.
Through the use of an SD or MMC expansion card reader, which connects to your desktop computer, you can copy the contents of your expansion card to your hard drive. Where can you get an SD card reader? Try your local electronics or computer store, or look online.
