Will the Lyra support 4GB or 8GB SD cards that are not SDHC?
I use my Lyra for audio books. I have only tried 2GB SD cards so far. Before I buy a 4GB or GB SD card (not SDHC), I would like to know if my device will support them. Thank you for your help. PS the sale goes off today.

The e250 works with microSD cards. Your 8GB card is actually a microSDHC card. While physically identical, microSDHC cards are electronically incompatible. You need to use microSD cards 2GB and smaller.
I do not have a solution, but I have the exact same problem. I ran out of memory on my son's Mix Max, and bought a TopRam 4GB SD card. I was careful not to buy the SDHC card, as these absolutely do not work with this device. I have a 2GB SD card coming and will try to load that one to see if it works. So far though, the only SD cards that have worked are the ones made by Disney. They do say SanDisk on the back, so maybe the 2GB SanDisk card will work. I'm just glad to know that I am not alone on this. You are the only one I have seen post this exact problem.
The card you are trying to use is likely a high capacity sd card (SDHC). This player does not support high capacity cards, it only supports microSD cards that are non-high capacity (I think most of them are usually 2GB or less, but you can find them up to 4GB).
In order to use an 8gb micro sd, the device has to be SDHC approved. If you don't see an SDHC (Secure Digital High Capacity) logo on the device or on the owners manual, It isn't compatible. It will read up to a 2 gb micro sd card.
We have 3 of the original 512Mb Disney MixMax players for the kids and, according to the specifications printed on the box, the largest memory card you can use is a 2Gb card, you cannot use a 4Gb memory card with a Mix Max. I have further tested this fact by trying to use a 4Gb card myself and it will not work no matter how I try to format it or anything else. I decided to be smart: read the information they give you with the product and don't try to add a memory card that's too big for the item's capabilities. You have no choice but to buy several 2Gb cards like we did and put them in a carrying case so the kids hopefully won't lose them.
well buddy sorry for the bad news but you better stick to the regular micro sd only cause they havent gauranteed the use of sdhc and secondly our sansa os can support only 2gb by default of card..so dont dream... but the good news is if you install rockbox to your player you could use a 8gb card with ease.. www.rockbox.org but your on your own with rockbox its an opensource software for mp3player and its developed by nearly 350 people accross he world
If the 4gb micro SD is a high capacity SD (it will say micro SDHC on it) your player may not be able to read SDHC cards, my sansa can't because it's the 'older version' it will read 2gb and below micro SD cards though (it sucked when I found out because I had just bought a 6gb micro SDHC)
