    Got my A-DATA 2G 150x a week or so ago, and it works great. Treo sees it, external usb sd card reader sees it, but my Toshiba Satellite's internal SD reader does not. It keeps saying to "please insert disk in drive F:"... Even tried a "FORMAT F: /V:TREO2G /FS:FAT /X" to no avail. Oh well *shrug*

    You need to upgrade the driver for your SD card controller. After updating, it will be listed as a Secure Digital Host Controller in the System Manager and it will see the 2GB card.

    You guys must have the luck of gold. I tried those format option commands from the command prompt with my PQI 2GB Hi-speed 133 card and at first it looked as if it worked. I put the card back into my Treo 650 (Sprint PCS) and it didn't ask me to format it. So I took the card out and back into my PC's internal card reader and Windows reported it was unrecognized and ask me to format it. Not wanted to do that, I took the card out and back into my Treo and low and behold the Treo ask for me to format the card too. I retried the format options from the command prompt and it would get half way before it came to an error, I kept repeating the command to format, and kept getting the error. Then I decided to perform the quick format from My Computer which went through successfully. The Treo still did not recognize the the card, so again I took it back out and inserted it into my PC card reader and went into the command prompt to peform the Format w/ options and it went through, but again the loop continued. The command format w/ options DOESN'T WORK in my case.


    Now the Treo can read the card only if I format it from the PDA, but when I do that Windows can't recognize the little flash device. See the Dilemma I am in. I don't know if this is a problem with the type of SD I am using. It is a PQI Highspeed 2GB card. Could it be the Treo 650 I am using may need a firmware upgrade? I am running Palm OS v.5.2H. Or could the problem be with the internal card reader I am using, the Device Manager list the device as IC USB Storage.

    I did not have this problem when I had my old Sandisk 1GB SD card with my Pocket PC. Transferring files back and fourth on that device was a bliss.

    Will try to upgrade the driver once I get home from work. Sees my Kodak 1G just fine, just not this A-Data 2G, and I'll know if it sees my A-Data 4G when I get home tommorrow...

    The old driver only works up to 1GB. The new one will see the 4GB as well.

    Tried upgrading with the only few Toshiba drivers I could find - nothing. I then let it upgrade to MS's SD driver - voila!

    Thank you sir!

    No they won't. Just be sure that you know what you're doing when you format them and you'll have the fastest card available.

    Try to reformt in PC card reader using DOS command:
    FORMAT F: /V:MyDisk/FS:FAT /X change F: to your drive. Then put into TREO and Rename card with CardInfo. Then you can take out and put into PC to reload data.

    I just bought an ADATA 2GB 150x Sd. Should get it on Monday.
    Is it better to format it within the Treo using Card Export?

    Yes in that you will be formatting with same device that you will be reading and writing date latter. I have learned the best procedure to format via CardExport is as follows:
    Start Format and when complete stop there and exit Card Export program, and remove the SD Card from the TREO. Then put it back in, and call CardInfo. Rename it even if to the same thing. Palm directory will be created. Then start CardExport again to restore data if needed.

    I was one of the first to buy this card. I read on another thread that you should use MSDOS to format the card using the following command "FORMAT H: /V:MYCARD /FS:FAT /X". The H represents the drive of the card. MYCARD is whatever you want to name the card. In this case it's MYCARD. I named mine ADATA. This is the most stable way of formatting this A-data card. I'm sure you can do this either with a card reader or card export. I used a card reader. Good luck.

    EDIT: OOPS..didnt see this was already mentioned. Was reading this thread through my Treo using mobile mode.

    Thanks I tried that initially and it didn't work. But I found the fix for this and decided to post it here in case anyone else who decides on a PQI Highspeed 133 2GB SD card and has the same issue.

    First, insert the SD media card into the slot of your card reader. Go to My Computer, right click on the drive letter of the SD drive and go to properties. In Properties click the Tools tab and then click under Error-checking Check Now. Only select the 'Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors" option click start and finish that. Then OK out that window and the Properties window before it. Now go to the Start button, click Run, and type "diskmgmt.msc". This should pull up the Disk Management window, and if you kept your SD card inserted in the card reader you should see it listed under Volume, right click on the drive and select Format. In the Format window label the Volume label "PQI", and set the File System to "FAT", and check the Perform a quick format option and click OK. It should format the SD Card. Your SD Card should now be readable/writable by your PC and your Treo 650.

    I don't know why it taken this particular order for me to get this thing to finally work but it just did. Before that I had tried the quick format from My Computer and Windows was able to read it but the Treo couldn't it kept prompting to format it because it was unrecognized, & vice versa when format was done from the Treo. The format from the command prompt, the FORMAT FS:FAT V:/ X:/ commands did not work well either, it performed a regular format and it would often halt in an error about half way in it.

    Also I recommend you install Card Export II palm app, this completely elliminates the use for me to take out the SD and insert it to my card reader for speedy file transfer, CEII does the files transfer to the SD Card on the fly right from the Treo's internal slot.

    That is the "standard" way to format anything tho, I can get ya there a bit easier....especialy since you alreday right clicked on "my computer". At least you won't have to remember an archaic string of characters to type in tun box. Right click on "My Computer" again and Select "Manage" then "Disk Management".

    BTW, you do know that you could have labeled it anything you want, right ? Labeling it after the manufacture rmay cause issues if you buy another PQI card. 2GBMUSIC or 2GBTTMAPS may be more indicative of what you got in there if all your cards are made by PQI.

    I tried a soft reset. Putting the 2 GB card in another Treo also came up with "No Card inserted."

    Why would the card all of a sudden stop working in the Treo, but still work on my PC card reader? The 2GB card was initially formatted with FORMAT E: /V:MYCARD /FS:FAT /X

    I will try reformatting and restoring the card tonight to see if that helps. I have a recent card backup on my home computer (thanks to BackupBuddy). Any other suggestions?
    I got my replacement card from A-data today. Formatted it thru DOS, popped it into my Treo and all is fine.

    I found it very strange that the failed cards worked in my PC, but not in my Treo. The replacement card works fine in both places. A-Data was a little slow in handling the replacement, but they came through in the end with a no-charge replacement.

    Well I got my ADATA 150x 2GB SD card from Newegg about a week ago.
    My Treo recognized it immediately but I proceeded to format it using the command function as per the instructions above. I formatted it within my Treo using Card Export II.
    I transfered my data from my ATP512mb SD, loaded mp3's and a video made with Pocket-DVD Studio and all has been working well since...

    Hi All, first time post here after few years of browsing, but I always appreciate the amount of info that you guys exchange!!!

    Just some of my experience on 2GB SD card:
    I've been using SanDisk ultra II - 1GB with Treo600 for a while (with no problem at the beginning) and have decided to move up to 2GB version of the same brand. Got really cheap (around $80; boy, price has been really coming down these days...), and tried to use it; No Go right at the beginning! Tried to format via Treo600 - no luck with hang, tried with some previous post of command line via PC - still no go with IOCTRL error message at the command prompt via Lexar Media USB 2.0 Multi-Card Reader (RW018 Rev D). Really started doubting the quality of the card chip that I got, but then found some similar post (on other web site) of SanDisk ultra II 2GB card conjuncture with particular card reader. Suggestion was to use SanDisk card reader (SDDR-99; about $20 MRP); and, went ahead + bought it at near by BestBuy store. Whala!!! I was able to format the card, and it started working! While it's copying the original file from 1GB card (copied/backed up the files to PC first; then, copied back to 2GB SD card), it kept giving an error of "Device not found" if I tried to copy large number of files; but, eventually, it worked OK all the way.

    Not to advertise the SanDisk's card reader by any means (or might be their conspiracy? <LOL>) but the 2GB SD card did work after all with the particular card reader. ...I was wondering how many SanDisk 2GB SD cards could have been saved by using this way...

    Anyway, just my experience + thoughts (so that some might be able to save time/the day without too much frustration, like *I had* )

    Cheers!

    It does seem that way. But it's not wishful thinking nor magic. The real reason I suggested the "DOS method" is to avoid crashing Windows Explorer. The problem is Windows Explorer attempts to read the device (which is corrupted) and then freezes, never giving you a chance to select the format menu. (Even if you manage to go the the format menu, Windows Explorer may attempt another read, which would fail again!) If you use "DOS", you can skip the read attempt and go directly to format. That's assuming the problem is not the card reader or the device itself. It works only when the problem is a corrupted fileystem. It turns out that's the case for most people... and so that's why it works.
