Question 4 GB SD in E140

Has anyone successfully gotten a 4 GB SD card to work in this player? I tried with a Ridata 4 GB and the player detects it as 3.8 GB correctly then hangs at the point for "External Card Checking changes in music content". Sandisk tech support is not very helpful on this matter, just telling me the player only supports up to 2 GB without explaining why it can detect the size of a 4 GB card properly yet cannot read from it. Is it a matter of formatting the card with different size clusters? I assume only Fat32 will work on the player and have not tried NTFS yet. I am using the latest V2 firmware. Thanx in advance for any help on this matter.

SD Cards higher than 2GB use SD spec 2.0. The e100 series was made and released before this specification was created.

Some companies made 4GB cards using the original SD spec, and those cards (in my experience) are low quality and unreliable.

This is my best explanation for your problem. Even a SanDisk 4GB card will not work in this player.

Is there an SD based player out there that handles 4gb cards?

Default sd 4Go

Hi
If You read about the sd card you should know that all 4 Go SD card are HC : hight capacity. Only specials devices can read this type of card . According to sandisk.com "Not all devices support SDHC 4.0GB cards. Please contact your device manufacturer for details. To ensure compatibility, look for the SDHC Logo on the product or packaging of your new camera or digital camcorder."

Default SDHC

I knew 4 GB SD cards are a different standard from the smaller ones. I also know from firsthand experience that the ESeries player will not work with a 4 GB card. The point about "special devices and the logo" do not necessarily follow as apparently certain recent non SDHC devices work with 4 gb cards. My SD700 IS camera works fine with a 4 GB Ritek SD card. There is no SDHC logo on the box nor mention in the manual about "high capacity" sd. The manual states "compatible with sd card standards", yet the 4 GB card works fine in the camera. There is an "SD Multimedia" logo on the box. Anyway, what I'm trying to find out is whether or not there is an expandable sd based mp3 player out there that works with 4 gb cards. I don't care about the logo as long as it works.

None for the Sansa players currently out, I'm afraid; the highest they can all support are the 2G ones. However, if you can hang on til March or so, the new ones they have in the offing will offer SDHC support. :-)

Default Transcend 4GB 150X Works in my E140

I bought a Cowon D2 recently which is in another league from the E Series but I still like the Sandisk for applications where I'm afraid I might damage the D2 like winter camping, biking, etc. The D2 takes SD also and I purchased a 4GB Transcend 150X SD card that works in it To my surprise, the Sandisk player recognizes all 3.8 GB of the card and was able to play music off it!

Default Works for me too!

4GB Transcend 150X SD on an e140 (1.0.010). Doesn't seem to register nore than 1000 files (I put 1,073 total, haven't confirmed if they being ignored or just not showing up on the display). Kept thinking I was hosed since it would hang on power up but once I reloaded the firmware AND kept a couple Mb free on the internal mem it fired right up . Seems to need the extra space even if no songs are on the card

Is that card listed as SDHC?

I'm curious as to how this all works out. Especially if someone start putting out a non-HC MicroSD card.
