    If WMP could not see the music how did you get to the songs to listen to them on the Q?

    FAT16 can support up to 4 GB depending on the OS. One would assume that WM5 would support that (and it looks like some are having success).

    FAT32 can support up to 32 GB.

    I'm 4-Gign' as of today as well. I have 3 movies, 161 songs, all of my 3rd party apps, some themes and such and it looks like this:

    3.88GB of Storage
    1.54GB Used
    2.34GB Free = YIPEE!!

    I bought a card off eBay called TopRam. It uses Samsung Memory and came with a free USB reader all for $61. Bought it from the same person as in the link provided earlier in this thread. I'm stoked!!

    BTW- I just copied one card onto the other using two readers, 2 My Computer Windows, and Copy and Paste. No formatting necessary.

    No problem. This is the link to the auction I purchased it from: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dl...MEWN:IT&viewitem=&item=140075370260&rd=1&rd=1

    The seller worked silently but quickly as I received my card and reader within a few days from the other side of the US. I can say that, initially, the card (or something) seemed to slow down the Q and when deleting 800mb movies, the Q froze; but after a soft reset, evrything works cherry with no stalls, freezing, or slowing down at all. Solid investment in my mind.:laugh2:

    Also seems as though the same chip can be had from this seller for as low as $51.99. Great deal! His/Her 1Gb chips are the cheapest I've ever seen ranging from 0.99-7.99!! Crazy.

    I just got mine from the eBay user above and it works fine. No problem at all. I formatted it using FAT 32 on my PC and then put it back in the Q. I just had to power it off and then back on for it to recognize the card. Got mine for $51 + shipping.

    Thanks MachB5.

    Samsung Cards

    Actually, it's not a Samsung card; it's using Samsung memory chips, but the card manufacturer isn't listed.

    For those who would prefer avoiding shady eBay vendors :laugh2: I've read that people have had success with MemorySuppliers.

    I personally wouldn't deal with that eBay vendor. He has to SHOUT AT YOU, only accepts PayPal, won't accept bids from new eBayers, has very limited return policies and his 4 GB regular SD card looks like a Photoshop job of a SanDisk card.

    His prices do look very good, but I would rather spend a few bucks more (well, more than twice as much).

    So to sum up this post I think we know that 1 and 2 gb works flawlessly with somepeople having luck with 4gb right? I need more space but want to make sure that it is going to work in the phone.
