hi, dazza.. i took your advice and i got my sd card reformatted to 16GB. but, now my hd2 with wp7 gives me an error that says :

storage card not working.
your storge card has changes, is damaged, or is non-compliant.
to fix this, turn off your phone and either remove the storage card or replace it with a new compliant card. then youll need to reset your phone to the original factory settings.
"

so what how can i fix this?

ah yes, sorry bit of an assumption made there! you will need to hard reset and install again, or reflash, its up to you, on the positive side, with only 200mb storage you'll not have lost much. your activation code if you have one should still work

you need to reflash the rom as wp7 foramts and partitions the card during setup, if you change the sd card then wp7 loses its settings and you need to reinstall

The Hd7 will become king of the hill once they crack it wide open, theres little difference between the two of them but the HD7 with its more vibrant screen does look a bit better. I still long for the day someone can get WM booting of an SD card, via magldr that is. however in saying all of that, dispite the HD2s drawbacks i still think it has the edge at the moment, purely because there is little that wont work with it, but least you gave it a shot. Good luck with the HD7

i guess thats one of the issues that has to be dealt with then using an os not designated for the device, there will always be quirks and issues

well if you would have read what your doing when installing windows phone 7 you would have known that this happens.

windows phone 7 doesn't support sd cards, thats why the card is formatted when installing it and you have only 200mb left. the rest of the card is in wp7s discformat and you can use it as your internal storage.
so when you farmatted your sd card to get back your 16gb as fat partition you deleted system files of wp7 that were on the card. that's why this error occured.

if you would read the instructions in the rom threads and the stickies you would have known all this. everything is clear and easy when you inform yourself before starting with something and there are a lot of threads explaining everything in detail.

Although this is posted many times, I will post it once again.

Wp7 will format your SD Card in a very special way for the system to work properly!
Therefore WP7 creates a partition on your SD card thus the low disk memory.
To flash your card back to normal please search in google this:
Panasonic sd card formater Click on the first link and download version 2.0.

After downloading. Plug your phone to your PC and enter MAGLDR. Go to USB MAssstg and press the Green Button. Now your PC will read your SD cARD.
Open Panasonic SD formatter and you will see your SD drive listed there.
Press Option/ Format type: Full Erase ON/ Format adjuster Size: ON..
Click OK and then Format. The procedure will take about 30 minutes or so!

I think we have to make a sticky post for other members to easily find it and read it! Good luck bro!
