View Full Version : Media card for 8800 in the UK?

05-30-2008, 03:31 PM
Having now started seriously to explore the potential of my new 8800, I realise that the 120MB SD card that came with it is not sufficient for my needs, as I am hoping to save a reasonable amount of music on it. What is the maximum size card I could get for this? Any recommendations as to best place to purchase?

Many thanks.:smile:

There is a good thread Stickied over in our Media section with some good guys posted on the media card. I always find a good sale at ecost.com

According to the OS on your device (OS 4.2.x?), you will be able to have up to a 4gb card.
