Froyo and App2SD - not working?

Guys, just installed the official 2.2 update for my htc Desire (2.09.405.8). Cant seem to get any apps to install to the SD card, even ones that are listed that support app2sd, google sky map for example. I have uninstalled and reinstalled this app.

Do I have to format / partition the SD card in order for the native froyo app2sd feature to work?

When I plug the phone into my PC I get the following folders ".android_secure" but its empty. When go into manage applications, and click on the SD card tab, no apps are displayed. when I click on the downloads tab, and then google sky map the "move to SD card" is greyed out.

Am I missing something here?

Also if I go into SD & Phone Storage, the option to format SD card is also greyed out.

I am using a 16GB Kingston card. Phone is not rooted.
