    Just got a Gp2x but need a sd card for it. I ordered a integral 2gb sd card from amazon but it doesnt seem to work :-(

    Does anyone have one sitting around that works or knows one that will work

    Its on firmware 2.1.0

    Thanks

    Realy? I thought the gp2x didnt support sdhc unless it was firmware 4 or something which i read wasnt very good.

    I don't know about the firmware version.
    I'm now on open2x, and I always used a sdhc.

    Can i install open2x using the built in memory or is a card needed for the update?

    Thanks

    I did it with a card, I don't know if there's another way.

    I always had good luck with normal blue SanDisk SD cards, look for one 2GB or smaller. Seems to be about $15-20 on Amazon, expensive relative to SDHC cards, but hey it's vintage hardware now ;)

    And there's no way to install firmware without a card, unless you have a breakout box - I still wish I grabbed one of those back when they were made.
