SD Card/file size

  Baz48 10:58 07 Dec 2006

Just bought a Corsair 2Gb Mini SD card for a PDA.

I transfered several files, one of 100Mb, via the Active Sync, successfully, but it wont transfer a 350Mb file. Progress bar gets to about 25% then returns to start.

Question 1: am I right in thinking there is a file size limit if the sd card is formatted in FAT32 and needs to be in NFDS?

Question 2: how do I tell what format the card is in at present? When right clicking on the card in "My Computer", properties tells me nothing and doesn't give me the option to format either.

I am running XP Pro.

Question 3: how do I format the card? Do I need a card reader?

Sorry, that should read NTFS.

Well, that's one question answered.

I believe the file-size limit your thinking of is much greater than 350Mb -- more like 4Gb.

But there may be a size limit in the Active Sync software, so a card reader may be the only way to transfer the large file.
