I bought a 5GB Seagate, it was very flakey and needed constant reboots, it would lose data and when I played MP3 files it would sometimes stop midway for a reboot before you could try to play that file again. You couldn't save mail to it, it would't even show up as an option in the mail to save mail there. It would also flake out during large file downloads.

I traded that in for a 4GB Hitachi drive, and it was much better. I could play mp3's without trouble, it never crashed and it could save my email....

But, the one problem I'm having is when you try to use the Voice Recorder it refuses to save data to the microdrive. It complains there's no space.. There's plenty of space, it's a 4GB drive. I thought there might be a problem since it was formated Fat 16, so I reformated ext2.. no dice.

In fact, when I formated it ext2, I could no longer save my email on there. So I went back and reformatted it to FAT16. Magic, now I can put my mail there again. But still can't save the Voice Recorder data there.

I know this is the drive of choice out there so I'd appreciate if one of you could try to record on it and let me know if it works.. if so maybe we can figure out what I did wrong to mess it up.

Two Questions:

1. Does Zaurus 6000 require FAT 16 for the apps (email etc) to work?
2. Why does Voice Recorder not record to Microdrive?

Many thanks if anyone can help.

UPDATE:: I also can't install to the Microdrive either... Same problem as the Voice Recorder, It gripes there isn't enough space even though there's plenty. Thoughts on this are welcome as well.

When I was using a 64MB CF card formated fat 16 I could store my email on it.. when I switched to 5GB microdrive formated ext2 the mail client won't let me save my mail there anymore.. is it because of the formatting? Should I try fat 32? Or is it the size?

Also I plan on going to Openzaurus once 3.5.2 comes out.. I wonder if that will make a difference or not.
