I just bought a GP2X and a 2GB SanDisk SD card.
I formatted the card via usb in windows and put some things on it,
but they don't show up from the GP2X.

someone posted this comment at the 1.4 firmware download:
"it seems that you MUST use a card reader. Formatting a SD card while the machine is connected to the device directly does not work"

could this be the issue? unfortunately i don't have a card reader.

I'd buy a card reader, formatting and copying files via the usb socket really doesn't work too well.

One thing you can try is download a "sync" app (a .gpu that basically does "sync"). Format and copy files to your card, run the the sync app, and then see if the files show up.

Your much better off with a card reader though...

just to make sure, as we've all done this at some point...are you definitely selecting "sd memory card" in the gp2x menu? cause the black options are what are highlighted as opposed to the white ones.
