    I get conflicting information when I search the forum archives...

    some posts say the 4Gb will work, others say no.

    I bought a 2gb card that needed to be and I was sent a 4Gb card in exchange for what the seller deemed as my "inconvenience". Pretty nice thing to do.

    But now I have the dilema of whether this card will work or not... My other cards are a 512Mb, a 1Gb SanDisk Ultra II which seems to be incompatible as well and a few small cards...

    My T650 is new so is it possible the 4Gb card will work? If not is there a software hack that will help and will the Ultra II work?

    (I don't want to start plugging cards in in case there is a format issue that will render the card useless later... I still don't know if these are just plug and play or if it needs formatting first.. )

    shoot....not the answer I wanted..

    I now find myself in the "memory abyss"

    Neither the 4Gb SD nor my 1Gb Ultra II are compatible with the T650... and 4Gb is too big for my Coolpix7900 since I don't store pics on the camera for long, and even at 7.2 megapixels the 1Gb is plenty big...

    I would sell the 4GB card and get two 2GB cards or one 2GB card and some accessories for your Treo 650.

    I thought those 1GB Sandisk Ultra II's worked fine with the Treo 650? At least I've seen lots of posts with ppl. using them...

    That's the plan...or I may keep it in hopes that a software hack shows up someplace...

    Conflicting info on the Ultra II...but that still leaves me 1Gb short on the Treo and slower write speed on the camera...

    The ultra II will work with the treo, but it will cause problems down the road. The treo's hardware doesn't seem to like the high speed SD cards.

    What if you made two 2gb partitions on one sd card? Is it posible?

    I believe that it's possible to do, but not possible for your Treo to access both partitions. One card is one card as far as the Treo is concerned.
