I have a Palm TX which I was given as a gift and which I’ve grown to love. It has successfully used SanDisk 1.0GB SDHC cards w/o incident. It has successfully used SanDisk 2.0GB SDHC cards w/o incident. Recently, BestBuy, CompUSA, and Circuit City all had a sale selling SanDisk 4.0GB SDHC cards plus a USB Interface plug for $50.00. Happy as a clam that I could finally fit all my portable US map software on one card (and freeing up the rest for documents, spreadsheets, and MP3s) I went out and bought one. I fought the evil plastic packaging with my Leatherman and valiantly raised aloft my prize. I inserted it into its little plastic interface plug and verified it worked. Imagine my shock, however, when I insert it into my TX only to find that it will not read the card!
Now I’ve already verified that the card is not defective; it is readable by my PC via 2 other interface connectors other than the one it came with and it will successfully receive and create copies of files via Windows filemanager. I’ve verified that the TX card slot is not defective; it reads both 1.0GB and 2.0GB cards perfectly. So, what gives?
I guess my question is in three parts:
What’s wrong (why won’t it read the new larger card)?
Is there a way to fix this? (… or even a work-around?)
Has anyone else here had this same problem and if so, how did you deal with it?
