Turn on with the SD card installed. I have to try about 4 or 5 times to get the set to come on with the SD installed. Take the SD out and the set turns on normally. I called Horizon and was getting ready to send the set back to them when I took out the SD and the set will turn on every time. That is just weird. They are sending me a new card. Any one else have this problem?

Try formatting the card in your computer, or try a different card.

There's nothing special about those cards but those radios are finicky about what they work with.

OK have the card in the computer but how do you reformat it? I don't see any way of formatting it.

Do you have a card you can pull out of a camera or something to stick in there?

No.
SD cards are SD cards...they will work in anything that supports the format...just like floppy discs, and don't tell me you're not old enough to remember them.

Now you dont have to wonder where the problem is, when the new card gets there it will either fix the problem, or it will be another crappy card, if thats the case carry yourself to bestbuy or wallymart and get the cheapest Sandisk card you can find.

I still want an explanation of why some cards will not work in transmitters - since they format fine on the PC. BUT go to Amazon and buy some old 4 GB Class 4 SanDisk cards like I did.

I remember 8 inch 256 KB (that's kilobyte) floppy disks. Big improvement over paper tape.

I got the new card from Horizon and it is a 1 gig. The one that came with the set was a 128mb. As soon as I put the 1 gig in it worked.
OK a question...I was always under the impression that when you formatted the card to the equipment that the card was going into, but from what I have learned about them is that all formatting does is erase what ever is on the card. Am I right on that statement?

Not really.

Formatting doesn't erase anything, it just allows information to be written over whatever is presently there.

You might say it is like putting blank labels over the existing folder labels in a file cabinet...you can then call the folders whatever you choose, and put whatever you want in the folders.
The old info is still there and can be retrieved with the proper software.

OK then why are we not formatting the new SD before we put it in the radio? because it's blank to begin with?

Yes blank, and probably formatted from the factory.

Formatting sets up a file cabinet so that it can accept file folders...so to speak.
Before formatting, the card is like an empty room and the device would not know where to store info so that it can find it again...so it doesn't even try.

Making any sense yet?
