    XV6600 and 2GB SD Cards

    I'm having a hard time formatting my Ridata @GB SD Card in my XV6600. Is there a compatibility issue here?

    Thanks.

    what program are you using to format? Pocket Mechanic is good, Flash Format is pretty slick too.

    You could also try using windows with a card reader. It should have come preformatted. Whats the problem?

    I have a 2GB SD card. I had to reformat using a PC card reader. Be sure to format using FAT and not FAT32 in order to access the entire 2GB (1.8 actual use).

    I formatted my 4 GB card using FAT32 and have full use of all of it, no problems.

    I tried Pocket Mechanic, my notebook, etc. with no luck, however I was able to format the SD card in a friends new desktop PC, and now it works fine in the XV6600. It was formated as FAT 32, and seems to have the whole 2GB available. Thanks for the help.

    A related question ...

    What's the max speed the XV6600 can access SD cards? Will a faster card make a difference?
    The XV6700 is a lot like democracy: They're both less than perfect, but they're the best available ... as far as Verizon is concerned.

    What happens when you format it using the phone? I did that on my 1GB SD card and it worked fine.

    I formatted my Ridata 2GB card in my 6600... no problems.

    Actually, the only problem that I did have was my laptop built-in card reader. Every time I tried to load it up, at about 800-900 MB, it started giving me errors. I formatted it in the laptop... it only had 1 GB available. That is when the light bulb turned on, and I figured that my laptop card reader/drivers is only setup for 1 GB cards. So I stuck the SD card in a cruzar USB reader, formatted it on the laptop (2 GB free), and loaded everything that way.

    It works great.
