    I think that my Treo 600 has a defective card slot. The manual suggests that there should be a tone when you insert a card. I don't get a tone - and I have to reset the Treo in order for it to recognize that a new card has been inserted. If I reset it now with no card in the slot, I get an "invalid card" message.

    I am using a 128M Kingmax MMC card which is thicker than the other MMC cards I have. It clicks halfway in before it then goes all the way in and seats firmly. I have also tried thinner lower capacity cards and I have this problem with all of the.

    How does switching cards work for others? Do I need to get the Treo repaired or replaced?

    You probably broke the SD card slot using one of the unsupported knock-off cards that are appearing on the market. Handspring warned about this on their site. They call out Kingmax cards in particular:

    It's tough luck. You probably will have a hard time getting a replacement. It's like putting bad fuel in your car.

    Thanks for directing me there. My card is actually an MMC card and those do not have notches anyway. The symptoms that they describe do fit, though. I wonder if we should avoid all MMC cards because the notches are not there?

    I do have the Sprint protection plan, so the repair should be covered - but I'm not thirlled at being without the 600 for a while so soon after I bought it.

    i've seen some of the cards too. In fact, one of my coworkers had an MMC card and it didn't work in my treo. good thing i didnt' break it.

    I see too many people searching for cheap SD cards. This is one of those things you don't skimp on. Get branded ones only, guys. I can say that sandisk, pny, and fuji all work (those are the best buy brands). fuji is made by sandisk and pny by toshiba.

    Lexar SD Cards work perfectly too.
