I just got a 8GB Transcend SD HC card from Fry's. About $130 if I recall. Even with driver updates I can't get it to work.

Has anyone else tried?

I think I will take it back and try for a 4GB PQI or similar.

Does anyone have rec of a 4GB that works really well with the Zaurus?

Cheers

I have a 4Gb PQI That initially gave me probs but once I learned to format and partition it correctly its been one of the best devices for my Z. What are you using for a ROM? Can you even see the card with fdisk? What happens when you type dmesg?

Just to clarify. If your using a Sharp based rom. Open up a console. then type.
# fdisk /dev/mmcda

this should bring you to fdisk. Type p to find out how many partitions the card has. It may have 3 - 4 . You may want to repartition it to have only one or two depending how you want to use it.

Hope this helps.

Might help if you let us know what Z you have....

FWIW, I also have the 4GB pqi SD and works great on my 3200, now running pdaXii13....

Sorry.

I have a 3100 and am running Cacko (the latest version). I have read through the list and have tried the two drivers that are avalible.

fdisk does not show anything, also when I see it boot with the card in I get a message saying it cant open it.

I will try and play with it a bit more but it seem like its a no go. Too bad cause 8GB would be nice.

Take a look at this thread.

It seems that the SDHC has been hacked according to the last post in that thread.
