This is what the Palm Knowledge Base said but this is old info. I'm too lazy to
look it up again for the OP, and it may have been updated by now. If you believe
the "and newer devices" in the next to the last paragraph, the 2G card will work
with the TX. It works fine in my Z72 and the TX is newer. But perhaps that
doesn't count since the newer NVFS Palms seem to be having more problems than
the older faster Palms did... ;)

Also if you read the last paragraph it says the Tung E can't use the 2G card.
Yet my 2G card seems to be working just fine in my TE. So who knows...

Maximum SD expansion card size and transfer speed for palmOne handhelds

LifeDrive: see Knowledge Library article 39823 instead of this article.

Because Secure Digital (SD) and MultiMediaCard (MMC) technology continues to
evolve, newer expansion cards may offer different features, such as larger
capacity and faster transfer speed, than were available for us to test when we
developed our handhelds. Although we couldn't test future expansion cards with
older handhelds during development, we expect many newer expansion cards to work
with older palmOne devices.

The maximum size of expansion card that can be used in your device depends on
the model.

Treo 650, 600 Tungsten T5, E2 Zire 72 LifeDrive and newer devices
We have tested 2GB expansion cards with these devices and can say with
confidence that they will work in these palmOne devices.

Tungsten T3, T2 Zire 71, 31 and previous devices
The file system used by these models, and those that came before them, can
support expansion cards up to (but not including) 2GB. At the time of writing,
1.5GB cards are available, and these will work with these devices. 2GB cards
will not.
