SD card not detecting after ext4 partition Milestone

I am using Motorola Milestone.
I formatted my mobiles 8GB SD card creating two partitions, 7.4 GB FAT32 & remaining Ext4 for app2SD using MiniTool partition wizard.
After flashing latest MIUI ROM using OR, (at that time card was working). Once after booting to ROM milestone is not detecting the card. Options for mount card & format card are disabled.

Any solution?

Tried on a PC?
Have you tried using the card on a PC (using a SD Card adapter) ? If that detects, then milestone should detect it too. You can also try using parted that comes with Open Recovery. Try using this tutorial: www dot mrmuh dot com /2012/01 /update-a-motorola-milestone-from-motorola-firmware-to-cyanogenmod-7/. Look at the Step 4 Prepare for Apps2Ext. That has some details on partitioning.

See first the Class of SD the Class 2, only support Ext 3 & 4, this is depend the Class of the SD, pull the SD on Mobile, and insert again, the Android check to any errors, this not work, use a SD Card Reader, and use Partition Magic, and delete all partitions of the SD, in Androidiani Recovery, in the menu (i dont remember the sub-menu) this says to Apply App2SD, they create a partition ext3 or 4 in your SD and found perfect =)

Cyas and I wait my quickly reply found it =)

Maybe your ROM doesn't support EXT4, try using EXT3 instead.

Sorry, now I have looked at the date of your post and I think I am a little late with the explanation.
