    WM6.1 8G SDHC Actually TESTED! and it WORKS!

    Has anyone actually written 8G worth of data and confirmed that it is usable?

    Those watching this issue may be familiar that some of the past patches got 8G to appear to be present, but would not all read / write correctly.

    If no-one has tested this, any suggestions on how to test it?

    I'm thinking I'll put 8G of music on it to test...

    Few have 8GB cards. I say go for it and report back. Also let us know if WMP will recognize it.

    Completely loaded an 8G SDHC and randomly played MP3s and all worked.

    I'm confident in it. I'm going to migrate to my 8G from my 4G.

    Very nice.

    I tested an 8gb Sandisk micro card yesterday. My friend had just bought one with a USB adapter at Best Buy, and let me try it out just to see if it recognized.

    Put it in, open file explorer, and the car shows up... first good sign. Then I go to Start -> Settings -> System -> Memory -> Memory card tab and see that it is recognizing 77XX MB

    So, YES this has been confirmed that WM 6.1 DOES recognize the FULL 8 GB!!!

    I'm going to be ordering one from wherever Pricewatch has as listed as the lowest, I've seen them around $40-50 on there.

    The "class" is a speed / marketing term. Higher numbers are (theoretically) faster. Go Class 6 if it's a reputable brand and/or you have reason to believe it will be as fast as it claims and be reliable (little or no failures and corruption).

    FWIW, as photographers, we've learned to use ALL the above qualifiers in choosing flash cards.

    I got mine on Ebay for $31 yos. I THINK it was from fastmemoryman. Works great!

    What about 16GB?
    A-DATA Turbo SDHC 16GB Class 6 Secure Digital Retail at ZipZoomfly

    $45 is tempting if it would work ...

    * @ below - My bad. I didn't look closely enough. I wish the i760 had stuck with full-sized SD slot as I have so many of those (and they are so much cheaper and more availability for readers etc.). I mean, it's not like there isn't enough space for a full SD slot on the side.

    That is a full size SDHC card not a micro.

    If only there were 16G Micros already... especially at that price!

    I think the spec will go to 32G... that'd be cool.

    I received my SanDisk 8Gb MicroSDHC with MobileMate Reader last night. I immediately loaded about 7Gb of music on it and popped it into my i760. I have had no complaints from Pocket Player, it sees 1342 songs and is happily playing them.

    I was able to snag mine from Amazon partner eek Technology for $41.29 delivered.

    Let's keep discussion of micros SDHC cards and Windows Mobile 6.1 to the original thread, which can be found here.
