I've had situations where when I connected my N800 to my desktop via
USB and one or the other card wouldn't show up on the PC. That happens
when some program on the Nokia is accessing one of the cards at the
moment you plug in the USB cable. When I put the Nokia through a fresh
boot it worked okay.

It works the other way as well - if you connect to your PC and the
cards are visible to the PC, they won't be visible to the Nokia. You
have to disconnect from the PC to make the cards visible to the Nokia
again. Have you rebooted the Nokia after disconnecting from the PC?

I've also had the Nokia not recognize its own card because whatever
switch or sensor tells it that the door is open wasn't registering the
proper state. After fiddling with it a bit (removing & reinserting,
jiggling the door/switch etc. it worked.

I didn't have any problems with my cards (I've got two 8GB cards) when
reflashing. I've upgraded two or three times alread - I've upgraded
every time a new OS release came out and am currently on the latest
