gurus,

just bought a new sandisk 256mb sd card, popped it into my c700, and... nothing. although the SD icon shows up in tray, system info recognizes the space, file utility program sees the card, as soon as i try to create a folder or move a file over, it won't let me. Popup window says "cannot make folder" or "cannot copy file". lock tab is set to allow write, meaning i have not set it to copy protect. do i just have a bad sd, or is there some sort of pre-formatting i need to do? thanks!

try to format the SD card via either a windows box (if you have a card reader) or a linux box. If you do it via windows, quick format - fat (16) works fine.

or you can try to format it directly in the Zaurus, check out this SD and CF FAQ

excellent! so for the sake of others reading the forum... which way did you format your card?

i just based it on the quick how-to doc for the sd card:

#umount /dev/mmcda1
#mkfs.msdos /dev/mmcda1
#mount /dev/mmcda1 /usr/mnt.rom/card


it formatted as vfat, and i was all set!

thanks again biggrin.gif
