Motorola ROKR E2
Does not support 4gb sd cards
Not to assume you don't know what you're doing, just trying to cover all bases.
I tried formatting the card with FAT16 and 64k sectors from the DOS command line but the phone couldn't deal with that either.
Motorola has fallen down here IMO. How hard would it have been to release a phone that supports 4gb (FAT16 *or* FAT32). It's Linux, so the drivers are already written...
Does anybody know how to find out the version of my phone's firmware and know a place to go to get updates?
Blech. E3 is ugly, ~30% bigger, ~20% heavier, and takes miniSD, which doesn't even go up to 4gb yet. No thanks.
Quote" Another good addition was that the phone now can recognize FAT32, while the previous Motorola Linux phones required the flash cards to be formatted as FAT16"
and . .
The maximum capacity of SD card is 2GB under SD 1.1 of Secure Digital Alliance (SDA) specification; however, by using file format of FAT32, many SD 1.1 host devices can use 4GB SD card.
I also found this website that sells 4GB cards for the ROKR E2 . . .
first . . .
which from all the talking between tech head the answer is no it will not take a 4GB card
but . . .
I have also found this . . .

who states that they has a 4GB card working sourced from china? . ? .?
if only it was possible to email the reviews on that site for more info, lets hope they stumble across this forum and give more info.
www.mymemory site never got back to me, so I not buy from them, but I found another UK based site that also states the use of 4GB cards for ROKR E2. ww...
The ONLY chance you have for a 4GB card working is if you have a newer firmware version than I do. I have no idea how to check my firmware version, but if you know I'll be happy to do it on my phone and compare with you.
