SD cards that work?
« on: September 13, 2008, 11:30:42 AM »
My Integral 2GB SD High Speed card works OK. But it's fairly full with music, so was thinking of getting an 8GB SDHC card type 6. They're about £16 from SVP.... Has anyone tried a SDHC card? It says on the SVP site that the HC ones are 'not compatible with standard SD-enabled devices/readers'.....

The Maximum size for SD cards and USB devices has been stated to be 4Gb by CnM lifestyle who provide the Maplin version. I have tried a 16Gb USB stick and it only sees 4Gb which seems to confirm it.

I loaded up the Large Drive Support driver from Downlaods on http://www.cnmlifestyle.com/ and was able to use a 8gb SDHC and 8gb USB stick fine. The site says the driver gives support to 32gb.

Useful to know  :) - what what 'Class' rating is your SDHC card?

Mine is working fine with 4GB SanDisk SDHC card that I got from Play.com.  I think it is a class 2 (it has an emblem which appears to be a '2' within a capital 'C')

BTW Amazon have got some 8GB class 6 cards for just over a tenner at the moment.

One of the posts re. this query stated that they had managed to download a file that enabled use of larger than 4GB SD cards, BUT, I cannot even find a downloads page!

Obviously a case of ageism, but I would be delighted to discover where to find the related-to link!

I have acquired a Kingston 4GB SDHC card.  Can anyone confirm or deny that this will work O.K. with MiniBoook?

I've been using a 2GB SanDisk SD card as my main OneT memory and a 512MB one which usually lives in my digital camera. Never had a second's trouble with either of them.

SD Cards

As there seems to be problems with various types of SD cards not being suited to our small machines. I feel that perhaps we could compile a list of ones known to work. All that is needed I feel is the Name and Type size etc.

i.e Aldi's (Meldon) own brand micro sd with adapter 2GB sold every few weeks as special about £6.99 (Using this type currently (with no problems so far!)

Scandisk 4GB Micro SD & adapter works, along with the Poundland's USB SD/MMC Reader (MMC will not work with LLL)

Morrisons have had Sandisk 4GB SDHC cards on offer at £6.00, and again I have had no problems so far!
