    I'm still in the state of shock just looking at the list of softwares and games you have. My question is......how did you managed to get the 2GB card to work on the Treo650? Are you using the MMC or SD version? My Treo650 takes a max of 1GB......which is kinda sad cos 2GB are dirt cheap here.

    FAT16 has a maximum formatted capacity if 2 gigs. However you can only have a finite number of files in the root directory. Put your files in folders and limit goes away. I have 1.3 Gigs of TomTom maps, 71 programs and about 600 MB free space

    So does it mean that i can use a 2GB so long as i format it in FAT16 and that in FAT16, each folder can have a limited amount of file/size. Also i assume the Treo650 won't read it as 2GB.

    Question, how much files or size can be in a folder?

    No, you misread it. The root directory is the only one with a fixed size. You could have one subdirectory that contains 65,000 files, or one file that's 2,000 MB large, but you wouldn't enjoy it.

    According to Microsoft, FAT16 may have as many as 65,525 clusters (I don't know what Bill's doing with those eleven clusters skimmed from the top), and the cluster size on a 2 GB drive is 32 KB. 64K * 32KB = 2 GB.

    Ah, for the halcyon days of DOS 3, when this was new and exciting and my hard drive was a whopping 20 MB...

    You can use FAT16 or FAT32 to format the card on a Card Reader. The original 650 however is only equipped to read / wite FAT16. You can make a custom ROM to provide FAT32 capability which uses a driver "snuck off" from a preproduction Treo 700p. This will let you use SD cards up to 2 Terabytes ..... biggest one available right now is 4 GB.

    This kinda freaks me out as a 4 GB SD card holds as much data as 2,844 floppy disks.

    As for the limit, ONLY the root folder has this limitation. Folder limitations are into 5 figures (64k) so you shouldn't have to worry about that.

    ^ You can check out some custom GSM ROMs with the FAT32 driver here:

    I just stuck the SD card in my Treo and it worked. A few months later when I updated my Rom with the new FAT32, I noticed it was a bit quicker accessing my card.
