    SDHC goes upto 32GB these days, SDXC is the next step up, but not sure the readers in audi's recognise the XC versions.

    Have a read:

    Yes upto 2TB SDXC are supported.

    However, the largest currently available is a 256GB SDXC.

    spiriosdimos - 25 GBP is a reasonable price for 32 GB SDHC

    However for 40 GBP you can get a 64 GB SDXC

    128 GB is starting to get expensive in terms of GBP/GB and 256 GB is very expensive.

    For your info the audi manual says the limit is 64GB, i am currently using a 32GB card and it is fine.
    This is the limit for Audi, not SD cards in general, its how there audio system has been programmed to handle the file size.

    the exact one i am using is this one: Samsung 32GB Essential SD Memory Card with Frustration Free Packaging: Amazon.co.uk: Computers & Accessories
    its a class 10 and comes with a 5 year warranty.
    the cheapo one from "komputer bay" i had just broke, cheap plastic. you get what you pay for.

    So far there's only a few albums. I need to find the time to load it up completely. I'll let you know how I get on.

    If the drive recognises the card size, then I cant imagine it will have any issues with being full up with tunes.

    As has already been stated in the thread, the limit is 2TB, (SDXC) although nobody actually produces one this big...yet.

    That's the limit of SDXC, but there was a post earlier in here that said the manual stated a 64gb limit, hence the question.
