Hello, I want to ask a question, and I hope someone can contribute an aswer.

I bought a 512 MB MMC card for my Nokia 6230 phone, that, as you know plays MP3 and AAC. The card's brand is Mobile Storage.

The problem is, the card gets recognized as having only a capacity of 489 MB!
I have reformatted it several times, but the result is the same.
Does anyone know what is wrong.

BTW, this is a great phone, although the SonyEricsson W800 Walkman looks fine too. Anyone has it? Can you share your opinions?

as for the sony w800 vs nokia 6230 question... i keep my "older" 6230 over the w800 by the simple fact it uses MMC, not propietary sony Memory Stick crap. BTW, both of them need to be modded with the included headphones in order to use common 3.5mm headphones so they are pretty much alike. My 6230 hasnt a killer volume with the mod but its loud enough to enjoy but nothing that can make my ears bleed biggrin.gif. Add the fact that nokia has better signal than Sony anyday...

What i'd really like to know if theres any point on getting the nokia 6235 over the 6230... any comments?
