5x00 maximum memory card sizes
« on: September 30, 2004, 08:09:58 pm »
Hi,

  I read somewhere in an amazon review that the 5500 supports a 128Mb SD card only, and no larger, is this true?

  Also, I can't find an FAQ on this site, is there one?

Thanks,
Infinite

Any size should work...

Anything above 2 GB will not automount unless you reformat it as ext2, because the original FAT16 will not allow sizes greater than 2 GB, and the Z will only automount FAT16 and ext2.
Sorry. I just don't have the time...
