    Question Mini SD Capacity

    Advertisement



    Does anyone know if the 8800 can only recognize a max amount of memory on a mini SD card? I do not want to buy a 2GB card and find out it can only use 1GB.

    Tcrawford, I don't know for certain, but I assume it's 2GB. What you need to make sure is that you buy a "MicoSD" and not a "MiniSD" card.

    Right - my mistake - I knew that, just typed it wrong.

    Anyone know for sure that an 8800 can access/use all 2GB?

    Indeed, it works.
    As long as you have the most current handheld OS installed on your device.
    I just got mine delivered today.
    It seems to be working flawlessly!

    Another confirmation here
    Mine works just fine, it's recognized as 1.8GB but that's the game we play with nomenclature.

    Does the 4GB microSD work as well? I'm waiting to get one of them.
    Is BB stating max. memory the 8800 will recognize.

    I guess the 4GB isn't due until later this year. I'll just wait for it and have my own "iPod"

    Re: Mini SD Capacity

    I heard that the 4GB is not useable on devices not intently made for 4GB usage. I think most current format phones have a max of 2GB. I wouldn't bet my life on it; but I know i heard it somewhere.

    Re: Mini SD Capacity

    2GB is it for now; the MicroSDHC High capacity cards will not work in the BBs yet; right now there is a 4GB available and they will take it up to 32GB; Hopefully RIM can just release an OS update that will enable the BB to handle the SDHC cards

    the firmware updates that will hopefully be released will enable larger microSD capacities.

    Re: Mini SD Capacity

    I have a 512 Micro SD card that I was going to try to put in, does it just slide in? The bracket looked a bit big for a MicroSD card....
