Exclamation n73 Memory Card Thread

Please list down the following information about your n73:

1. FIRMWARE version

2. MEMORY CARD brand and size that you are using

3. Working condition of the card? Does it work properly or not? What are the problems if there are any?

Let's try to help each other out because I've been reading a lot of 2gb memory cards not working on the n73. Thanks!

I own a 2gb transend memory card. My firmware is the latest one (that starts with a 3) though my card worked perfectly even before i updated the firmware. As far as i know the n73 has no problems with 2gb cards. What i'd like to know is how it deals with the new 4gb cards.

I read somewhere that 4gb cards are having a problem and they're testing it right now and making adjustments to the firmware.

Running the ME firmware v3.0638.0.0.30, running a Mobymemory/noname 2gig card, no problems whatsoever. Not the fastest, but definitely reliable.

The ONLY problem so far found with cards is that the N73 occasionally "forgets" they're in the phone.

This issue seems to be at least partially fixed in the latest firmwares, and doesn't seem to be related to card size / make.

Oh, and 4GB cards aren't officially supported anyway.

That explains what happened to mine a couple of nights back. I thought for a moment that I'd left the card somewhere (ie. taken it out of the memory card reader and not put it straight back in the phone).

What is really irritating on the ME firmware is if you use the swap memory card option, put it back in, the darned music player forgets all the tracks, album art settings, and you've got to reload them all. Painful.

Same here :-)
1) v3.0638.0.0.1
2) Noname card from Mobymemory 2GB
3) Works perfectly well and did so even with previous firmware version.

I recall when I bought my card that there was a lot of bad stuff on various forums (but strangely not in this one) about the Sandisk memory cards not being recognised and randomly disappearing.

V 3.0638.0.0.1 ( 30 -10-06)

Extreme MiniSD 512 MB

Well, its okey, but it takes like 15 mins to install a 4 MB application!! I don't know why..

And like 10 Mins for installing a 2 mb application, any recommendation of formatting the memory card?? if yes how to back up the memory card ?
knowing that my friend has the same card brand with 512 and its faster!! please help!

Could anyone please do me a favour! I need to know the DELAY time on a 256 or more MiniSD ! when going to video camera then going Options then TURNING OFF the Sound RECORD and Turn it Back ON! Just count for me how much does it TAKE to SWTCH because here using an XTREME MiniSD 512 takes like 13 Seconds!!! so slow! please am waiting for replies let me know!! I switched from MemoryCard tp PHONE MEMORY and i switched the Sound Record to ON and OFF it switched Fast! so am sure its from my memory !! I want to make sure from you guys if you are facing the same problem, ofcourse I updated to the latest firmware version (Music Edition) .

1. Version 3.0638.0.0.30 - MUSIC EDITION
2. TwinMos 1GB 150X
3. No problems

Question:
Is there really a difference in user felt speed between the different MiniSD 2 GB cards? Is there also a complete MiniSD brand compatibility list anywhere?
