I found this SDHC driver for the Sharp ROM on a blog called "Puchi no izu":
http://petit-noise.net/download/sdhc-driver

The author (bucchi) says that he has experienced good stability but, as always, try at your own risk. The driver supports up to 32 GB. I installed it on my SL-C750 with Sharp ROM.

Mounted and accessed files, no problems:
2 GB SanDisk (Class 2)
8 GB SanDisk Ultra 2 (Class 4)

I didn't do any speed tests or any writing.

I also tried an 8 GB SanDisk Ultra (Class 4) - would not mount, but dmesg showed the partitions were found. The automounter only looks for VFAT I guess and the VFAT partition is one of the extended partitions. All the others are ext2. I will look into mounting this one manually.

This driver is much better packaged than the C-guys one.

If you try it, please reply to this thread with your results. Thanks.

Amazing, so far this driver is working great on 2gig cards that I was never able to use before with the regular sharp driver (had a limit of 1gig). Copied files to it until it was practically full then read them again. Going to test a 4gig one when I get chance.

Thanks! Great find!
