    Has anyone managed to get the Desire to work with a card partitioned in ext3 on the Desire? I have a 16GB card on which I have just a single ext3 partition and it used to work with my Samsung Galaxy. When I however try to use it with the Desire it doesn't recognise the card and just says "Card has been removed". I had to partition it to FAT32 to make it work. So has anyone managed to get ext3 working?

    (I'm running stock T-Mobile ROM, no root, just stock)

    Hundreds on here and on xda are running ext3 partitions on their desires. Got a 1 gig partition myself built using gparted.

    All I can suggest is to recreate the partition.

    Same here, for well over a year with no problems. Gparted is the way to go.
