I got it from Newegg.com and paid $78US. I was going to only get the 512mb version, but for only $30US more, I bit the bullet. I did pay $25 for overnight shipping so I could have it for the weekend, but that was still a good price overall.

I popped in in my original n-gage and it was already formatted and all I did was copy the backup of my old 64mb from my PC. I dumped a bunch of my software progs, pics, mp3s, about 500mb worth, and I have experienced no difference in performance from the old 64mb.

I'm so far quite happy with the card.

Have you been able to access the MMC through the PC by USB cable with your 1 GB MMC? I just popped in a 1 GB in my original N-gage, and the PC will not pick it up as an extra drive like it used to with my 128 MB MMC. Is this a limitation of the Ngage, or the card. The card works fine in a card reader. Thx!

kingmax 1Gb MMC

I too just bought a kingmax 1Gb MMC !!! Ordered it from an english site www.ematbuy.com , cost me GBP 71.68 . This is the cheapest i could find in the UK. Now, I'm just waiting for my MMC reader, I read elsewhere that it is reccomended that you use a reader and not the n-gage (original) itself because the n-gage was only designed to be used with 128mb mmc.

I will also use the mmc reader to reformat my old 128mb mmc that i formatted in windows with NTFS file format. Formatting like this causes your mmc to not be detected by your computer...

Using the card reader will take less than a minute... actually a few seconds.
formatting with the ngage will take about 1/2 hour. haha.
you want to format the card to FAT. I believe that is what the ngage will format it to if you use it.
It sucks a little because I liked just carrying the USB and downloading stuff at work, but now I have to pull the card out and use a card reader anytime I want to write to the MMC. oh well. Maybe someone will write up an update for us 1 Giggers.

Question

Does the firmware version of the N-gage has something to do with the size of the MMC it supports??? I read it in the N-gage official website "www.n-gage.com" that it supports up to 512MB. But in the same page, but for Brazil, "www.n-gage.com/br" it says that it supports up to 128MB.

My firmware version is 3.47. I read here that the latest is 4.10. The problem is that in my country, the nokia service says that my version is already up-to-date. Is V4.10 firmware only for UK or USA??

Thanks in advance.

Kingmax 1GB

I have the Kingmax 1GB, works great in my N-GAGE QD. I have only sent 200mb or so to it, so If I have any problems as I add more files Ill have to repost.

Only problem I'm having is I can't read/write to is using my card reader. I have a Dazzle SD/MMC reader/writer that supports USB 2.0. When I put in the card and try to access it I get a I/O error.

It works find in my QD just sending files thru bluetooth, but it would be a pain to send multiple large files this way.
