    Hi:
    there are some apps that I load on my SD card that work fine and others do not. When I check in Filez.. the files are there ( on the card ) but I cannot access them. Am I missing something? Do the directories on the Card have to be set up in a specific way?

    Thanks for your help or pointing to a thread. I have searched to no avail.

    As lgreenberg stated, it is not advisible to directly install all you apps to the expansion card. This is b/c man apps require that they be memory resident to function properly and thus will not work off the expansion card. Secondly, if you do install to the expansion card, make sure it is in the proper directory which is typically /palm/launcher as defined by the install tool...

    Anyway, I would advise you NOT to directly install anything to the card in the first place! Instead you should invest in a 3rd party memory manager like PowerRun, TealAlias or zLauncher. These apps will automatically move apps to the card and leave small shortcuts in ram. When you launch the shortcuts, the memory managers will automatically copy the apps to ram and then move them back to the appropiate dir when you exit. It also allows you to organize the shortcuts the way you like instead of cluttering up your launcher directory...

    Many apps CAN be installed directly to the SD card. Some that I have directly installed are CSoptRun, JpegWatch, RescoView, Kaluach, LionDoc, PleiadAtlas, MobiPocket, SiED, SplashID, and SplashMOney. Others do need ZLauncher or PowerRun or something similar.
