Just picked up a 2GB miniSD card and was wondering how to format it so the phone recognises it - as it currently saying it doesn't support memory of this size?

Tried using tools / miniSD ...

Tried the USB cable.

Does it require a hotfix? And where could I get this?

So brands of miniSD don't work in phones. What do you have?

you may have too fast a card - apparently they break the specifications to make the cards faster.

Slower cards are cheaper, and generally more compatible - I had to get a slow 2GB for my Nokia 6265 (now in my Apache).

Sandisk and Kingston both work well.

Brand new Kingston 2GB card.

Would there be anyway too "underclock" it - slow it down.

It says all really. Try using a 1GB memory card instead.

Thanks guys, still using my 1GB but was rather hoping for the memory upgrade.

How about anyway of asking SANYO directly or possible hotfixes for the 5600?
