...because all of the apps that were previously installed are not currently installed. That's my educated guess.

Besides the old bug had to do with entering low power mode when the device went idle during a write and certain cards responding to the voltage change improperly (crappy cards more than crappy software), not suddenly running out of power. . . .

I don't know why, as I stated... I suspect.

... and I don't know why the card could not simply be reformatted. It doesn't show as being available in either Linux, Windows, or the tablet.

I also suspect that it has more to do with an immature SDHC standard as this problem is popping up on other device forums regardless of the card's brand name.

I shut mine off to update it and it wouldn't power on. Put it in the fridge as usual for a half hour or so and got it to power up and update. Sure hope it fixes the problem.

I updated my N800 with the 51-3 and it no longer saw my 256MB internal memory or 8GB SDHC card. Memory program couldn't find anything except the built in ram. I reloaded the OS2007 and rebooted and it found everything ok again. Then I reloaded the latest OS and it still doesn't see any memory except the built in. The wizard won't let me go back to the previous version of OS2008 (50-2?) as it says it is corrupted each time I try, even though I have downloaded it a few times. I click the choose location button to load it from my PC location. I tried to go to the 50-2 from OS 2007 and it wouldn't let me either, just the 53-1 version.

The memory cards should be ok still, just not visible. I am going to try a non SDHC card later on and see if it sees that one. Although the 256MB internal isn't SDHC either.

I have something similar with the internal card (external works fine) see this thread. Seen I'm for the moment fine with the external card's capacity i'll further experiment when the next OS update comes along - don't want to reinstall or mess up my current config.
