Thanks, I had given up hope. It seems that interest in the PE is waning, but I will give it another go.... I'll keep my PEs and EE going until they drop from exhaustion....

Yeah, you guessed it, the thing I said I had to do the first time around? Finally made it work this time, too.

So, for anyone else who's tried the lengthier and/or repeated suggestions and still had no luck? Format the CRAP out of that sucker with SDFormatter -- specifically, use the Full (Overwrite) format, not the Quick format -- and then go into Minitool to add the second partition (i.e. resize the original partition to a smaller size to make room for a second one, then create the second one). Both times -- today and when I did it the first time over a year ago -- that was the trick that sweet-talked my PE into recognizing the SD card as usable. Everything else worked like a charm.
