Today I started experimenting with the new Dell Axims that came in. So far, I like them. I have had a problem with the SanDisk CF cards, however - the Dazzle readers we got work either not at all or very slowly with the CF cards, and the Dells will read them, but if you write to it you stand a good chance of corrupting everything on the card. I am able to write to the card using the activesync program, but if the Dell tries to do it internally, using the backup utility for instance, the data is corrupted. Not good. From what I have seen on the Axim forums, this is not a rare problem with Axim and SanDisk. So why does Dell ship the Axim with SanDisk CF cards?
