       I've been using the Creative Labs sound cards for a very long time, very fine systems for music and sound effects, "surround sound", et all. When their players first came out, I got so into them that I now have two of the originals, their only problem is using up batteries. Both have FM receivers built in (!) and I need that for weather reports here in "hurricane alley".

       Looked twice at the contacts inside the little square player, same number as on the memory card, so this is going to be a mystery to figure out.

       I'll look at and print out the page, might make a difference somehow.

      Thanks for the extra bit of advice, I'm feeling like a caveman now!

      Gil- Of course it "fits fine", it's a microSD- that describes the size, and "pinout", data transfer, etc. The issue about handling 32 gB is not physical size, but data capacity.

      As for the Zen- it's made by Creative, a well known tech company that made it's name originally in Computer soundcards. "SoundBlaster" is their line of cards, you may have heard of them.

      Getting back to the Zen- Creative's own webpage (found by a simple Google search on "Zen M300"), shows certain cards are compatible, some may not be. Here's their web page that discusses this:


      Perhaps this will help you.
