What do you mean doesn't work?

You say SDHC But I assume you mean Micro-SD HC

SDHC cards won't work because they're too big and won't fit.

You want a MicroSD or Micro SDHC. These work fine with the Hero, up to the 16GB maximum currently available. Supposed to be compatible with the upcoming 32GB cards as well.

Micro SDHC cards do work...I have a 16GB Class 6 Micro SDHC card in mine and it works perfectly.

If you have a Micro SDHC card, what's not working? Perhaps it's something simple that I (or someone else) can help you with?

You might need to format the micro-sdhc card.

Menu > Settings > SD card & phone storage > Format SD card



I am using a 16gb micro-sdhc cl6 card just fine, I even partitioned 2gb to ext2/4/swap for the ap2sd functionality.

sorry about the delayed response. Whenever I plug it into my phone, it says "This card is either blank or using an unsupported filesystem." and gives me the option to format it. then doesnt do anything, let me snap pics, or anything.

Gotcha...so at least it fits in the phone lol.
You'll need to put it in a card reader, something other than the phone. At this point the phone won't even mount it to format it from Windows.

Once you have it in a card reader, you can format it, make sure you format it as FAT16.

You MIGHT be able to format it in Recovery from the Format SD option. I assume you will be doing this anyways for Apps2sd.

You need to format it.

If your phone has trouble formatting it, stick it in your computer and format it there.
