What is the largest sd the pb80 will read?

I believe it is 4GB. Another user had a similar question in which he was not able to use an 8GB card but was able to use a 2GB and 4GB one. IF in doubt, the manufacturer will be able to give you this information.

My Macbook no longer recognizes my Firelite Hard Drive

It could be incorrectly formatted, if so you can reformat by using another computer that recognizes it or you may be able to find it on your laptop through a formatting tool. The formatting tool built into OSX is called "disk utility".
