    2nd time I've gotten one, this one is a replacement for the other, and my 4gb A-Data Class 6 MicroSDHD doesn't work. Anyone have the same problems either with this card or any MicroSD at all?

    Yep, sending mine back today. I just got a RMA number to return that POC.

    I just have formatted that card over 20 times, trying everything possible:

    FAT with M3 REAL USB adapter - Tried this 3 times
    FAT32 with M3 REAL USB adapter - Tried this 3 times
    FAT with R4 USB Adapter - Tried this 3 times
    FAT32 with R4 USB Adapter - Tried this 3 times
    FAT with SD Adapter in a card reader - Tried this 3 times
    FAT32 with SD Adapter in a card reader - Tried this 3 times

    I cant' use the SD Adapter in a standard card reader, I had to use the new HP printer.
    I believe that is the only card reader I have that can read SDHC

    And each time I formatted, I used the panasonic SD formatter.
    What is the trick? Anybody had luck with 4GB cards? I'm going back to my 2GB Kingston.

    resres, do you have your card filled more than half of the capacity (~2GB)??

    No, I didn't fill it all the way up yet, maybe about only 1.5 GBs, more or less. Waiting on buying a DS Lite (instead of using a phat) so I can fully enjoy it.

    And yes, I bought mine from Newegg.
