Rockbox is a replacement firmware. How the sandisk firmware addresses a card has nothing to do with how Rockbox deals with one. If you use the dual boot feature to use the OF (Original Firmware) is the only time that might be an issue.

The firmware update I linked was supposed to deal with any compatibility issues. I don't know if it did or didn't, I never had a problem with any of my cards in the limited time I used the OF.

As Steve points out the transfer speed while card is in the player is limited to the transfer speed of the internal memory. There won't be any advantage to a Class 10 card if you use the player as a reader to transfer files.

I would go with the card that has a proven track record. Any time saved transferring files by getting a card with a higher class rating would be lost again if the card doesn't work properly.
