Re: 2GB microSD not responding

I found this funny,
My computer, installed my SE as a MSC when I plugged it in and after 4 seconds unplugged it and then replugged it in for the first time.
To switch back to MTP I just deleted the MSC drivers related to the SE and then plugged the SE back in w/o unplugging it and replugging it in.

Haha, it's funny. But I'm using Vista so I'm not sure if this trick works for XP or such.

Re: 2GB microSD not responding

I tried a suggested fix - reformat to Fat16.  Still doesn't recognize card and it total messes up playing songs - they skip as though the device is too busy indexing the card to play the song.  This whole problem occurred when I foolishly updated my firmware from 1.00.15A2 to 1.01.01A2.

Called the tech support line - their story is that Kingston uses a different controller and won't work with the Express.  Ordered a Sandisk card with mini and std adaptors from Amazon ($30).  We'll see if that fixes the problem.  I suppose I should be content with the base 2gb, but the slot is too irresistable.

Re: 2GB microSD not responding

But it did work before the firmware upgrade.

Anyway, Staples had a sale week of Columbus Day and they had Sandisk brand for the same price I paid for Kingston, so I guess I'll just use it in my camera with the adapter.

Re: 2GB microSD not responding

Sandisk 2GB SDMicro arrived.  Worked fine although I had an issue with the indexing not refreshing properly - showed songs and then wouldn't play them.  Turning off and then on finally forced a full refresh and things seem to be working OK now.  If they could just get the resume feature to work correctly without having to resort to power off to save your place.

1.01.01A2 hasn't caused any problems for me. I've been loving my SE ever since Sandisk sent me my RMA.

Re: 2GB microSD not responding

I gave in and bought a Sandisk 2gb microSD......and it works perfectly. Will use the Kingston with my camera and an adapter Smiley Sad
 
I found one less than $20 and gave up on firmware fix.....it doesn't appear that this issue is a priority. I started this thread in JULY!!!

Re: 2GB microSD not responding

Bretzke, where did you find your 2GB Sandisk card for $20?  I can still send my Kingston one back, which cost $25....

Re: 2GB microSD not responding

I found it on Amazon from a 3rd party lister. Here is the direct link:
 
 
Came in a small padded envelope and works great!
