      I think mine is working with a 8GB card.  Just be sure to get the correct micro->mini SD converter.  Micro->standard SD converters are very common but I couldn't find a miniSD adapter at the  retail stores. I had to order one online.

      The miniSD form factor is different than what is in a typical digital camera.  See SD Card Form Factors Diagram.  I guess it is a common form factor in some cell phones.

      Hi Paul,

      1. I've heard people using 8gb cards without issue.  I've personally used 2 and 4gb without issue.  You'll probably just want a microSD card with a micro->mini adapter.

      Good Luck!

      Hi group,

      As someone that loves hacking both hard and soft ware, finding this device (just yesterday) called to me.  I have a couple of quick questions to start me running.  I have looked over the message history but found references that go back some number of years.  I thought I would ping you for current thoughts.

      1) Memory card:  Since I need to purchase one, I figure I will get the largest that works.  What is the max GB card that is compatible?  And do I look for SD, MMC, other?

      2) I know you folks are constantly working on the code.  What and where is the best way to open this little box up and get going in Linux?
