Default Rockbox + microSD questions

Hello fellow ABIs,

I did a quick search and haven't been able to get answers to the questions that I have. I know it must have been asked and answered, but I am hoping someone would be kind enough to advise me.

I have a Sansa e280 (8gb) with Rockbox loaded. I will be purchasing a microSD card after work and need details on the maximum sized microSD Rockbox can read.

So:
- What is the max sized SD card Rockbox can read?
- Can Rockbox read microSDHC?
- Which is preferred microSD or microSDHC? And Why?

I would like to get your opinions on what is best to get. Also interested to hear what you others have done.

Thanks

Rockbox can read any available size of MicroSD and MicroSDHC cards. SDHC (= High Capacity) is the more modern standard, with larger cards and sometimes faster transfer speeds. Nowadays you probably don't even find oldskool SD cards in stores anymore. Stick with any brand product like Sandisk, Kingston, and such, don't buy no-name cards to avoid any hassle. The transfer speeds of the card don't matter much for the Sansa, since the slot is slower than the card anyways, so it doesn't matter if you get a class 2, 4, or 6 speed card (except you want to use a fast external card reader instead of the Sansa to write to the card).
