    Can anyone recommend a fast 4gb microsd card? I recently upgraded to a 4gb card and things like taking pictures, using call rec to auto record calls and backing up (rscbackup) have become unbearably slow.

    -help?

    I am beginning to think speed issues like you have mentioned are related to how the palm os writes data to the card.

    I have a zire 72 until att comes out with a black or blue centro, and i recently upgraded from a standard sd to a ultra 2 and at first I could tell a difference, but only with taking photos, well after a week or two, it bogged down again and took forever and a half writing photos to the card just like the old card.
    I have had issues before with duplicated folders as well, but I dont know how to address the problem other than to clean up the card in windows and try to write photos to the palm itslef, and transfer them to card later. if you or anyone else finds a solution it would be aoppreciated.

    I picked up a Kingston 4G and it was really slow also. I replaced it with a Patriot 4G and it works much better

    Both Class 4. The Kingston was just slow all around. Even using in the computer was significantly aggravating

    How about in layman's terms? Is a 4GB Class 2 or something faster than a 8GB Class 6 or something like that? I'm this close to pulling the trigger but I'm still lost as to the size and speed I need.

    Hey tsy. any chance you can give us specific id or part number on that? Sandisk may have more than one 8gb out there....

    I am copying info from Steves it's a pdf file dl and it should answer your questions. Also see Sandisk's one or both and keep for reference

    Compatibility with SDHC 4GB:
    4GB SDHC cards can only work with SDHC compatible host
    devices. To ensure compatibility, look for the SDHC logo on
    the packaging. Please check with your device manufacturer
    for their current/future supported SDHC devices.
    What is Class Speed Rating?
    The SD Association has created and defined 3 speed
    classes to help you identify speed and performance
    capabilities/minimum requirements of SD/SDHC cards
    and the host products. The SD Speed Class Ratings
    specify a minimum sustained write speed for SDHC
    cards (Class 2: 2 MB/s; Class 4: 4 MB/s; Class 6: 6
    MB/s*).
    You can look for the Speed Class Logo to identify the
    performance class of your memory cards and host
    devices.
    NOTE: SDHC, the SDHC logo and SD are trademarks.
    *1 megabyte (MB) = 1 million bytes; 1 gigabyte (GB) = 1 billion bytes.

    Thanks! So what is the Centro Class limit? I don't see buying a card above what the Centro can handle.
