    4Gb are hard to come by but occasionally can be found on Amazon or FleaBay but exercise extreme caution on the bay and try to only buy from UK suppliers are far east stuff can be absolute tat copies.

    In the end I bought multiple 2gb cards from Mymemory.co.uk in batches (Kingston 2Gb x4).

    This is 4Gb: 4gb SD Card by King of Flash NOT SDHC: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics

    I bought this exact double pack from tesco direct and both SD cards are full and in the rns-e and working fine:

    SanDisk 2GB SD Memory Card (Twin pack) - Tesco.Direct

    It says product is discontinued on website, but if you go in a tesco store with a tesco direct counter and do a stock check, many still have them. I got mine 2 weeks ago.

    Failing that just buy the double pack from elsewhere or get 2 single packs.

    These cards do definitely 100% work though.

    The ones on Amazon are the only non-HC 4GB I've seen recently, though, and those are what is needed...

    These seem to sell really well! 4gb and sold as RNSE compatible.

    eBay - The UK's Online Marketplace

    I think the seller must have loads, he always relists.
