    4GB SD cards for RNS-E at less than Ł5

    Having accidentally washed one of my SD cards the other week I was pleasantly surprised to find that you can now buy the 4GB cards on amazon for less than Ł5. Search for 4GB and Transcend and you will get a variety of cards listed, ignore the SDHC which won't work. I went for the cheapest unspecified speed cards (rather than the 150x or 133x) and they seem to work at just the same speed when I copy files to them.

    I understand the limit on the cards is 512 files but using 320kbs encoding on MP3 that works out just about right - I have 424 files taking 3.9GB

    You're prob using the SDHC as most of the bigger cards are this format.

    4GB SD cards formatted to FAT32 should work fine, I use several different makes.

    Any size SDHC card won't work at all.

    not sure if there are ANY 8Gb non-SDHC cards, but success: confirmed... these 4Gb SD cards definitely work!!

    Ł8.50 inc delivery!

    non-SDHC :D

    Just need to keep them formatted in FAT32...

    I'm using 320kbp Fraunhofer codec compression, if that helps.

    There isn't - the SD standard specs the maximum size at 4GB - there isn't enough address bits for any more.

    <= 2GB - always SD.
    >= 8GB - always SDHC.
    4GB - available as both SD and SDHC.

    Got them yesterday and now have 8Gb worth of music in my A4

    @ Rajiya_ne_Oudi: I'm searching for a SD 8GB not SDHC, where do you buy yours?
    I've found Samsung MMC Plus 8Gb on the web but i don't know where i can buy this!
    Do you have a idea?
    Thank you

    You'll search forever - there is no such thing as an 8GB SD card, if it's 8GB it's SDHC, period.
