All sizes are supported (MicroSDHC specs up to 32GB), with 8GB being the largest currently available.

Yes, you can play videos from the card.

If by "new faster" you mean "Class 6", then yes. In fact, I would recommend only buying a Class 6 card. Unfortunately, there are no 8GB Class 6 cards available yet, so you're stuck with Class 4 if you want 8GB. FYI, Newegg has several 4GB Class 6 cards available for under $20.

Actually, SanDisk's new "Ultra" line of microSDHC cards (which boast faster transfer speeds and which ABi did a feature on here) appear to be Class 6, as their product photo attests:



I suspect these are the "new faster micro SD" cards Cathryes was asking about. If so: Yes, they should work just fine in the Fuze...and they are available in 8GB.

Nice card reader shown there too. I'm crossing my figures for a price break as they become more readily available.

The speed class becomes more critical as capacity increases. I am eyeballing that cool Class 6 logo...very nice.

You can get an 8gb one (class 6) with the spiffy reader for about $62 shipped from Amazon.

thankfully I could care less about video. I just want storage space so the cheap class 4 cards are fine. With my $70 credit at Dell, I have a 16gb flash player for under $90.

Are class 4 cards that slow that they'll affect video playback?

Doubtful... It basically just let you put music on the card a lot faster.

doesn't seem like much of a reason to spend more on the faster card then, unless you're constantly putting music on in some sort of hurry.

Well, It's only about $15 more than a Class 4 8GB and you get the spiffy reader that doesn't come with the cheapies, so it's not like you're paying a lot extra for the extra speed.
