    MiniSD problem

    I Just switched from the PPC 6700 to Treo 700wx (acctually I have both, someone gave me the 700wx for free, because they left sprint, lucky me. So now I'll switch phones every few mothns). I have a miniSD from my 6700 and I have the converter to SD. But when I put it in the 700, it wont work. Any ideas??

    Thanx in advance for the help.

    i may be wrong but the 6700 may put certain files on it that have to be removed before it will work in another phone... I know when I went from my 6700 to a 700P I had to reformat the card. Just a possibility.

    I also had the 6700 and had to reformat my card as well. Pain in the butt since you use both phones but perhaps better than buying a whole new card. Just make a folder for both phones on your computer to quickly copy the files each time you switch. Personally id just buy a new card, they're really not very expensive these days, especially the regular SD cards.

    I came from the 6700 as well and had the same problem. I believe that I also had to copy my data off and then reformat my card. In fact, you would be doing yourself a favor by doing this anyway since it would allow you to clean up things a bit for the new device.

    I figured it out (which makes me feel bad for those of you who refomated the cards). I realized that the miniSD was working (i.e. the contacts of metal/copper? on the card) and that the outside contacts of the SD card were working too, which means that the contacts of metal/copper? on the inside of the SD card were not conecting all the way. So, I removed the miniSD from the SD, squized the bottom of the SD converter a little (don't break it) and while gentaly squizing I place the miniSD in the (now being squized) SD converter. And what do you know, it worked. No formatiing or anything. Hope this helps future miniSD to SD coverter problems.
