Hi Frederik, what you say can't be true, but you guys tend to always lag a bit behind

Have a look here: http://shop.transcend.nl/product/pro...d=7&indexnum=2 they also send to Belgium.

The Transcend 8gb cards they sell there work fine with zen.

Default second the Kingston 4GB SDHC

I second the EDITed comment - Kingston 4GB SDHC works fine in my 8GB Zen. I don't notice a delay in getting it to work, but I don't really remember if it did the first time I tried it.

Has anyone had a problem with the Zen destroying the SD card? My son has a 16GB Integral SDHC card which was working fine until he plugged it into the Zen. The Zen didn't recognise it - and worse still, the card now appears to be completely non-functional if I try to read it through my card reader on my computer. I've tried a couple of other ( cheap!) SD cards in the Zen, it didn't recognise either of them, but at least they still functioned after I removed them again.

These do not work! You can see the file names, but trying to play music or view pix results in a lock up that requires a reset.

SanDisk 256mb (AR0402RF)

SanDisk Ultra II 1gig (BB0533402569B)

I don't know about that SD card for sure. You may want to stick with SD cards that are either approved by Creative or ones that have been varified OK by users from this thread here:

http://www.anythingbutipod.com/forum...ad.php?t=20855

Personally, (Video speaking) I prefer the larger screen size of the Zen over the Sony you are asking about. I know it isn't much bigger, but it does make a difference to me. Depends on how much video watching you will be doing. Video clips, it will probably be ok. TV shows or movies, 2.5 inch is about as low as I would like to go. Also, according to the ABI review, the A810 only supports 262k colors compared to the Zen's 16.7m colors.

Default Well, this 4gig card works....

Bought this card on ebay for around $20. Turns out it's a fake. Sandisk does not make a non-SDHC 4 gig card. It works fine in the Zen and other items I have tried it with. It's as fast as another standard Sandisk card. The contacts look a bit weaker than OEM.

Careful when buying cards on ebay.

There is no such thing as a 4GB Sd card, the 4-XX GB will ALWAYS be SDHC

Yeah, now I know. One a good note. My Canon SD450 won't handle any SDHC cards but will handle this 4 gig card. SO that works out.

I emailed Sandisk with photos, they confirmed they don't make this card and it's fake.

I saw that card. There must have been a few that made it before the SDHC standard came out. These are great for older devices that can't accept those cards.

Yes. Some 4GB non SDHC cards came out about the time newer SDHC cards came out. It didn't last long since most manufactures began creating SDHC cards instead.
