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 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.
