1) I've read other's who have had a similar problem. Search the forums. I believe it has something with residuals from previous ROMs. Try task29 before flashing.

2) Seriously asking this???? You use Zune to put content on to your phone! WP7 works through Zune. Have you not read any of the "how-to install WP7" write-ups and the requirements for syncing with your PC?

It isn't any different from what you did with WM6.5, just a different interface.

I didn't look at the links, but it basically has to do with how WP7 formats your SD card. It can be reformatted in a way that reflects the size of the card. I can provide you with more help if you'd like.

hey drewden.. thanks for the info. below is what a poster said on one of the links. I'm going to try it so i can get my sd card back to 16 GB again:

Quote:

Enter MAGLDR, go to USB, connect it to the computer, run SD Formatter,Select correct drive, Options - Format Type= Full Erase On -Format Size Adjustment =ON.

This has been covered many times since the introduction of WP7.

How can we reformat the SD card in a way to increase the FAT size instead of the default 200MB ?

There are a couple of ways, but why exactly do you want to do this? Dual booting with android possibly?
