Default Sandisk Mobile Ultra microSDCH card compatible?

Has anyone used this card http://www.bestbuy.com/site/SanDisk-...=1218454592088 with their SGP. It says it works with microSDHC compatible devices, but I've read that some people have had problems with it not recognizing devices that it should. Most of the reviews are positive. If someone has used this with a galaxy player I'd like to know how it performed. Thanks.

I see no reason it won't work as are players OFFICIALLY support up to 32GB, you are aware you can get a class 4 32GB on amazon for a few dollars more then that one at bestbuy.

this is the exact one I have so I can confirm it works.

In fact is you choose the frustration free packaging on amazon its under 20 bucks and is eligible for free shipping.

Agreed 100%....no reason to buy an 8GB card anymore.

Thanks. I ended up going to Best Buy and getting a Mobile Ultra 16GB class 10 microSDHC card for $16. I was a little wary of the ones on amazon because of some of the reviews I read. If I had of seen your response first maybe I would have gone for for one of those anyway. Oh well I think I'll be happy with what I have. It took me four years to get enough music to fill up 6 GBs, so I'm pretty sure I'll be fine with 16 GBs. I have to leave now so I won't be able to test it until tomorrow.

I have the 16GB version of this card, probably the exact model of what you bought. I liked it but it wasn't quite as fast (7-8MB/s) as I hoped it would be for writes (10MB plus).

I replaced it with a 32GB card which has even slower write speeds (4MB/s), but once I initially load most of the data of course the write speeds don't matter as much.

I've probably bought 30 or 40 Micro SD cards from Amazon for myself and my neighbors in the past 4 or 5 years. I did get one bad one which they replaced with overnight shipping.

Amazon is usually my first choice to buy from. Best Buy always makes me a little suspicious because they often get special versions of things made just for them that leave out key features. I doubt that would happen with a Micro SD card but it makes me buy from them very carefully.

Almost any card works if you put it in the player and tell it to format it. Even 64GB cards work, though they aren't technically supported.

Thanks for the responses everyone. I can confirm that the memory card works. What would be the best way to put my music collection which is currently on the internal memory card on to the external memory card? I've never had an pmp with expandable memory before, so I'm new to this. Thanks.

I'll ask here again. Do you guys think future 128gb, 256gb and so on will work on the galaxy player? I know this will be all speculation, but if anyone knows about this stuff I'd appreciate if you shared that knowledge.

Unlikely, the first gen 64 GB XC cards are reverse compatible because they are SDXC revision 3.0 the future larger revision 4.0 may be or may not be, read here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SDXC#SDXC

So would a firmware update be required for the SGP to support the SD 4.0 cards or is it more of a hardware limitation? Maybe I should have considered this before I made the purchase. Oh well.

Thinking about picking up either the 4.0 or 5.0 Samsung Galaxy Players. I heard you can use a 64GB Micro Card in it.

Would this SanDisk Ultra 64 GB SDXC Class 10 30MB/s (SDSDU-064G-U46) work in the either of the 4.0 or 5.0 Samsung Galaxy Players?

I'm using a 64 gb Sandisk Ultra card in my SGB 4.2. I've also tried it in both my SGP 4.0 and 5.0 and it worked just fine.

I just realized that the card you linked to is a full size SD card. The SGP 4.0 uses micro SD cards, not full size. Here's a link to the card I bought:

Sorry about that, I thought I had linked to a "Micro SD card".

Yes, 64 GB cards do work. The reason they aren't supported is because SDXC cards have a different format from SDHC. If you format them to FAT32, which is what the Android devices format to if you format it from the device, you can use them.
