The SD card has to be formatted with the FAT16 file system.
Try using the 49g+'s built-in formatting capability: Hold down [ON], press and release [D}, release [ON]. After briefly displaying some information about the flash ROM version and build, it will display a list of options, mostly tests, but also FORMAT; press . When it's finished, to get out of the tests mode, hold down [ON], press and release [C], release [ON] to force a warmstart.
If that doesn't work, use your PC to format the card to "FAT" or "FAT16"; not "FAT32". If you have a choice, use the appropriate cluster size for your card, that is, 512 bytes for 32MB or smaller cards, 1024 bytes for 64 MB cards, 2048 bytes for 128MB cards, and so on.
For formatting on the PC, be sure that the switch on the card isn't in the "Lock" position.
Note that the 49g+ itself ignores the "Lock" switch on the card.
It may be a good idea to use the 49g+ to format the card again once the PC has formatted it to the FAT16 file system.
