By opening preferences, do you mean displaying the preferences menu:
the list of secruity, locale, sound, recording, etc.? There's nothing
on that that pertains to memory (except my ATA Support prefs, but those
don't apply here). Is there some more specific prefs I need to open?

In any case, I did tap the prefs package in my extras drawer so that it
displayed the above mentioned list, then inserted the card,
but nothing happens other than the newton light bulb coming on and
staying on at the top of the screen. The newt freezes and has to be
reset (although if I remove the card without resetting, i get a box
that warns me to return the card or risk damaing data).

I searched the faq for some refernece to this, but came up empty. very

I take it that when you put the card in with prefs open, you're
supposed to get a dialog?
