Default e280 Not Working Right with microSD

My Sansa e280 (v1, 01.03.18A, Rockbox'd) is not properly working with my 8G microSD card. The file manager shows a <microSD> directory, and when in MSC mode it shows up on my computer--but with no space at all. The same attribute exists with it in the device itself.

What could I be doing wrong?

The Sansa firmware will not read a microSDHC card. You will need use a card reader that can.

Default 0 Size Showing Up in File Browser in Rockbox?

Oh yeah, I forgot that the Sansa firmware is what boots up when you connect the player to the PC. And of course the Sansa firmware doesn't recognize HC-type of cards.

I think the part that throws me is that the File browser in Rockbox shows the card but shows 0 in size, I thought it would show 7.74G free (or something like that). Is it only showing the USED space as opposed to FREE, is that the case?

You go into System, then Rockbox Info, then look at MSD, and see if it reads it there.

Default Works Great, Thanks

Wow, don't I feel silly. I went there as you said, and there it is, plain as could be.

It still blows my mind, as a 39 year old that can recall when Sony Walkmans (the 1979 models that played cassette tapes) came out. That 8G microSDHC card is so freaking tiny--and it can hold about 2,200 songs? Good freaking goodness. (Assuming 128k MP3 songs here and that my 4G m260 was on pace to hold about 1,500 96k WMA files. 8g/4g * 96/128 * 1500)

And now they have 16g cards, about 4,400 songs. My goodness. (Of course mine can hold that now with both the built-in memory and the SDHC card.)

DOH!...I just got my 8gb Sandisc card in and was going to try loading it in the next day or so. Guess I should have been bidding on one that came with the card reader dammit! So does this card reader just plug into a USB port then?
