make sure your card is not above 2gb (doesn't support sd hc before update)

try other micro sd card or adapter, or get a real mini sd card...

so you think its NOT the EZ itself the problem?

just try another 2gb micro sd card (dont got any spare one? either way try to get a mini sd card, it's cheap on ebay.. i got mine for 1.50€)
just buy a small capacity one like 512mb or even less, update ez iv and then you can try with a SDHC micro sd card...

ho, and format the current card using panasonic formatter (search on google for it, website is SDA something).... did you tried that?

format it with sda formatter (also called panasonic formatter) put only the update file on the card for now, and give it a try, is the adapter good quality?
also, when removing the card make sure you use windows safe removal (not just copy and remove the card.. either wait 15 seconds before unplug it or safe remove it..)

I'm afraid this happens if updating it with a not full comaptible memory.

ACTUALY my EZ flash works perfectly now! :D all i did was putting peace of paper beneath contacts on cart :D

Its called as i saw a "paper trick" so simple xD

thanks to @Pieter Schutz for telling me what error "fat initial 0" means... it means card is not recognised, so i figured i should try with contacts and it worked!
