Question about SanDisk Sansa E280 MP3 Player

Micro SDHC use

Hi!

Can you tell me if I can use anything larger than a 2gb MicroSD card in my e280 version 2?

I keep seeing these 8gb MicroSDHC cards and want to use one if I can.
I don't want to buy one and it not work -retailers typically won't accept returns that have been inserted into a device.

What is the difference between the two anyway?

Thanks!
Patte

    Thank you so much Stemyn86!



    I feel much more confident now that My unit will not implode or that I will be left with a card I don't know what to do with. Unless I use it in my laptop or something....right?



    You're awesome!

    And thanks again FixYa Team!

    Sincerely,

Yes you can use them. Version 2 players support all size SDHC cards. However version 1 players can only accept 2 gig regular micro SD cards, which can also be used in version 2 players.
HC means High Capacity.

What is the maximum size of micro sd the mp828can support?


microSD cards range up to 2GB in size, and any of them should work in the MP828. Larger cards are actually microSDHC. While they'll fit into the slot they're electronically incompatible.

What is the largest capacity micro SD card that a Samsung GT5230 can take?


According to the manual the phone can use microSD cards up to 8GB. However you're not likely to find any microSD cards larger than 2GB. Larger cards are almost certainly microSDHC cards instead.

What is the maximum size microSD card that can be used?


The A520 uses SD cards. SD cards max out at 2GB in size. A microSD card in an adapter looks exactly like a SD card to the camera, and microSD cards also max out at 2GB. Anything larger is a SDHC or microSDHC card. While they will fit into the slot, they are electronically incompatible and will not work. So, the short answer is: 2GB.

I am considering purchasing a Sandisc Micro SDHC 8Gb card for my Sandisc E260 MP3 Player. Will this be OK?


Hello,

Highest capacity memory card for the e200 series depends on the firmware version.

Consulting the Sandisk page gives next information:
Sansa e200 - verify the version of the player. To check, go to Settings > Info.

For 01.xx.xx firmware (e200 version 1) - up to 2GB microSD cards
For 03.xx.xx firmware (e200 version 2) - up to 16GB microSDHC cards
NOTE: Firmware is not interchangeable.

Sansa 280 memory probleme.


Does the device your playing it in support MicroSDHC?

If it doesn't, it will not play it on that size of a memory card. The most you can get away with using on that player is 2gb.
