Hi Guys

I have recently ordered a C6 for my upcoming christmas holidays. I have seen that Sanyo have released a firmware update for the use of (SDHC) SD cards.

The price of 8gb cards is very reasonable and I would like to ask if anyone has tried ANY 8gb cards. I have my eye on the:

8Gb Transcend High-Capacity (SDHC) Secure Digital Card Class 2 (TS8GSDHC)

from


http://www.memory-configurator.co.uk...2/?countryc=GB

If anyone has any information, it would be much appreciated.

Regards

Jonny

From Sanyo's Site:

Purpose of Firmware Update (November 6, 2006)
Provides compatibility with 4 GB SDHC memory cards

Looks like 8 GBs are out.

Hi Guys,

Thanks for the replies, I guess no one will know for sure until they give it a try.

I naively thought thatsince SDHC support was added to the device, that this would include support for future SDHC memory cards. I was aware of the firmware upgrade description, however I was hoping that Sanyo specifically mentioned the 4gb capacity due to:

1)not mislead consumers into purchasing non-compatible cards over 4gb and

2)the news of the 8gb SDHC cards had not been taken into account when writing the description (or it had but had not been tested).

Regards

Jonny

No you can't use 4GB non-SDHC and I wouldn't buy cards from eBay either.

That's my guess. I looked at the firmware for the C1 and it only supports FAT12 and FAT16, for a max of 2GB. I don't know, but they might nothave had 2GB SDs when the C1 first came out. Now the new C6 firmware supports FAT32...I'd be surprised if Sanyo would have hard coded support for a limited size. I could be wrong.

Because ebay is loaded with some of the worst memory card frauds on the net. Buy your card from a known online dealer.
