    Steve and the facts on the 4 gb card

    [thanks for the clarification) I see you're a factual kinda guy:wink:
    I ordered the 4gb mini sd from the website you listed and not from the ebay links. should be fine. I was wondering if anyone was using anything larger than a 4 gb card with success on the q. but so far it seems that the 4gb is the most any one here has tried with success

    8 GB Cards

    I don't know if there are any larger cards for the Q. I've read that Samsung announced an 8 GB MicroSD card, but I believe that's a High Capacity (HC) card and HC cards don't work in the Q.

    That's one reason I hope that the newer Qs (Q9h, Q9M, etc.) will support SDHC.

    No Links

    It doesn't matter if you don't provide a link. There are many eBay vendors selling 4 GB MiniSD cards, but only some of them work. Without a link, you're forcing people to guess which vendor you used.

    If it's one of the vendors mentioned previously, at least say which one.

    MemorySuppliers.com great deal!

    I just ordered a 4 gb mini sd for my Q and got an email offering me $10 back on my cc card. Now that is a nice surprise! i have a 1gb card i got from them with a lifetime guarantee on the card and i've had it for a while and never had any trouble at all.
    MemorySuppliers.com though the card was $59.00 with no tax and free shipping i got for $49 with the $10 off my order.

    I bought from them because of the lifetime card guarantee. I have wasted serious cash on bad cards before. PS the card works great on the Q.

    People have been having good luck with the 4gb card this guy sells. I am right now in the process of of loading 3.5gb of Music onto my phone. I just got the card delivered this morning. I haven't heard any complaints about the 4gb card he sells. Here's a link.

    So given all of this dialogue- what's the deal?

    I don't have an SD card reader in my computer or an attachment. I'd like a 4GB card, but it sounds like I'd need to format/ reformat any of the cards mentioned- someone please correct if I am mistaken. Moving on...

    If I don't have a reader or a way to format a card, is there a 4GB card that I can purchase which will offer plug and play functionality? If so, please paste a link so that I can make this easy for myself.

    Thanks,
    Paul

    The card in the post above yours plugged and played for me, however I would suggest buying a card reader as it's alot faster if you're going to put any significant music of files on it. Real slow with activesync and only $10 or so for a card reader. Don't know how you can live w/o one.

    I just spent about 5 hours putting 3.5 gb of music on my new 4gb phone with ActiveSync. There's got to be a better way. Perhaps with a card reader.
    It does work great though....not one problem.:wink:

    Definitely a card reader is the way to go for large data transfers.

    Card Readers

    I assume you mean a "SanDisk" card reader, but any card reader should work. I recommend getting a USB 2.0 one for faster transfers, though.

    Anyone using any MicroSD cards? I'm thinking of buying MicroSD to kind of future proof mine.

    Yes, but mine came with a microSD in a miniSD adapter and the q9h is going to use microSD which says the next generation Q might go to microSD as well. Plus my wife's phone uses MicroSD so I'm thinking of doing the same as verizon did and get a mini to micro adapter and use micro.
