Default Anybody tried one of the new 32gb SDHC cards?

I've got a V1 Rockboxed e280 in need of a sdhc card and I was thinking it might be worth it to pick up one of these:

Anybody know if Rockbox can utilize that much space?

That's not micro. Physically, it's the wrong size.

Thanks for saving me from wasting $75 on a card that won't work. I'm looking for a micro sdhc card then? Like one of these:

?

Now I'm going to get people's hopes up thinking they've got 32gb cards out now. Sorry guys.

Yup, that should do it.
On a side note, if your looking into the 8gb micro sd cards, you could save a couple more bucks with this one
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820208453
Because if that Kingston works the Transcend will probably work as well, that is if you're worried about brands. However I do know for a fact that the 8gb Sandisk micro sd card works.

If 8GB isnt big enough for you, Sandisk's 16GB microSDHC works just fine with rockbox.

I'm running a 16gb microSDHC in my e280. 24gb of ogg goodness. It works flawlessly, and now that USB works in rockbox, my sansa is the perfect player.

Cant speak for cracksbacks, but the sandisk 16gb microsd card i've got is only class 2.

HOWEVER: Note that the class of the card doesnt really matter in an mp3 player, because it's a measure of how fast you can write to the card - all microsd cards read at a stupidly high rate regardless of class. So, the class of a card is very important if youre using it in a camera, but almost irrelevant in an mp3 player (apart from the time it takes to copy your music onto it).

I use a 16GB Class 2 and have had zero issues with playing music or videos from it.
