    RNS-E and SDHC that work!

    Could some of you guys recommend 32GB SDHC cards that definitely work in an RNS-E Mk2

    I bought a 32gb Kingston Class 6 off amazon and it just comes up as 'Data Corrupted' - I have tried formatting it in a few machines and different OSes but still no joy

    Before I waste anymore money I was hoping someone could recommend something they are using and which definitely works

    Cheers

    Im probably wrong but I thought I read before that the total was 32GB, as in two 16GB cards, one in each slot totaling 32GB?

    How old is the car mate? Not sure what year the RNS-E changed but up to a certain point only SD is compatible.

    The car is an MY11 BE and the RNS-E is a retrofitted Mk2 (the one with the media button)

    I am pretty sure it takes 2 x 32GB

    I have seen a thread where someone has a 32gb Kingston class 4 that works so I am bit puzzled why the 32Gb Kingston Class 6 doesn't - I am wondering whether it is a fake (though I got it through amazon)

    You are formatting the card as FAT32 and not NTFS?

    Best to use a class 10 tbh, storage options works fine, just awaiting a class 10 from another supplier to test.

    Just be aware, there are allot of counterfeits out there, they are labelled as kingston, class etc, but are infact a much lesser version & not the capacity stated.

    Max is 32GB per slot, not across the slots, so 64GB in total.

    yes formatted as FAT32 - tried it on various platforms - Windows 7 / Win XP via Parallels Desktop on a Mac and also Windows 7 on my laptop. Going to try Win XP at work but not expecting any joy. It appears fine on the OS but just does work in the RNS-E

    I bought the kingston from amazon but I had heard there are a lot of counterfeits about so going to try a class 10 from a reputable supplier.

    I've used Transcend brand 32gb class 10 from Amazon uk, they work fine in two mk2 RNSEs I've tried them in, formatting them FAT32 in Windows 7 x64

    Will give one of them a whirl. Managed to pick up a Kingston 32GB class 10 and that works but they aren't cheap
