SD Card Problem with Zire 71 to Zire 72 -- SOLUTION!

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

I just upgraded from a Zire 71 to a Zire 72, and when I did the backup
and restore using BackupBuddy with the SD card, when I restored my data
to the Zire 72, the SD card stopped working.

I only found one message in the groups, and there was an incomplete
solution.  i wanted to document the complete solution for people who
have this problem in the future.

The Zire 71 had a patch that enabled or enhanced the use of the SD
card.  When this patch is present on the Zire 72, it kills the use of
the SD card slot.

The file is "mmc.prc" and you can delete it from your Zire 72 using
Filez, or maybe just the built-in delete function.  Anyway, delete this
file, reset, and your SD card will work on the Zire 72.

Hope this helps!
