Toshiba bumping SDHC cards to 32GB

Toshiba announced it's reached the 32GB frontier with SDHC (Secure Digital High Capacity) flash memory cards, a successor to the widely used SD format that extends to bigger sizes.


Holy smokes! This is getting too much! 32GB SD Card can be how many DVD combined? So next time maybe it will replace CD/VCD/DVD forever!? How fast can this be? Anyone can give me a good answer?

Time to build a Video Player using SD CARD folks!





Latest update on this, I had taken a photo of my own SD Card and M2 Card and the size of it is almost the same as above...but I guess they are not the same. Haha...

Just researched on this SDHC (Secure Digital High Capacity) in wikipedia and it says plenty on SDHC and it's FAT32!! Great!

A new SD format, SDHC (Secure Digital High Capacity, SD 2.0), allows capacities in excess of 2GB. SDHC uses the FAT32 file system which supports a higher data density than FAT16[10]. It uses the same form factor as SD, but the SD 2.0 standard in SDHC uses a different memory addressing method (sector addressing vs byte addressing), thus theoretically reaching a maximum capacity of up to 2048GB. SDHC cards only work in SDHC compatible devices, but standard SD cards work in both SD and SDHC devices. The SDHC trademark is licensed to ensure compatibility.[11]

Hang on - so the SDHC is the card/s on the left, the bigger ones, and then the normal SD card is the smaller (black) one, on the right???

I am not sure but the black one on the right looks suspiciously like the ones in my hand phone "M2" Card...but the label does show SDHC leh...so maybe it's a mini SD card!! :)

My own picture of my M2 vs SD
