Don't have that one.

My iPaq rx3115 does 1GB fine. Let me pop in a 2GB. Hmm, fail. Trying a second 2GB card and it passed. Ok, formatting the one that failed and now it worked.

Hope this helped,

How I formatted it.

I had a Kodak z760 camera on the desk so I used that to format the card for this test. Windows can be awful in this regard because it can offer users NTFS, other options that could cause a fail.
