Are you using the modified sd driver that allows the Z to read cards of 2 gig or better? I tried it with a cacko crow rom and OZ and it worked for both. It should work for the pdaXrom as well.

The below link. It also worked on the hybrid ROM (tested it today).

SL-5500 Memory Limits?
« Reply #22 on: October 25, 2008, 08:39:55 am »
I want to dig this thread back up because I have a similar question, but mine is on the SL-5600.  I have the last Sharp ROM update (1.32) on it.

I'd like to know the maximum capacity CF memory cards (not microdisks) I can plug in it, even at driver level.  I'm thinking of buying a CF card to store data and would want the largest capacity.

Please help.

Thanks very much.

Thanks for the response.  1 GB CF cards are difficult to find nowadays, I think.  I would hope to know how well the SL-5600 handles 4, 8, 16 GB CF cards though.
