Mini SD card
What is the largest mini SD card we can get for the Q9C?Huh?
although it lists that it supports up to 32gb the largest I've seen is 4gb...
I believe the phone is sdhc compliant...
It is, so it should support up to 32GB as those cards are released. I have seen 6GB microSDHC cards advertised (though you would need a miniSD adapter to use that in the Q9c), and I remember reading that 8GB cards had been released, but that may have only been SDHC (as opposed to mini or micro).
you just gave me an idea...amazon had the 6gb micro sd for 70 bux...ebay has adapters for .99
4GB mini SD for $13.95 (using good checkout $10 off discount)
I'd be cautious about buying that one - it's actually a miniSDHC card, which the Q9C apparently doesn't support (at least the owners manual doesn't specifically state it does). I'd like to know for sure if it will work in the Q9C.
Yeah, shouldnt it be a "microSD"?
The Q9c does take miniSDHC; NOT microSD.
From page 29 of the manual: (can be found here: http://www.hellomotoq.com/forums/sprint-pcs/3745-q9c-manual.html)
"Your device supports the use of an optional miniSD (Secure
Digital) memory card (available separately) to expand the
device's available memory space. You can use cards with up to
32GB in memory, depending on market availability."
the 'up to 32GB' indicates that it will indeed take the miniSDHC cards.
Excellent - thanks Breeze!
im buying, is anyone else?
Well whenever whoever gets it, I guess that'll be you adma, let me know if it fits for sure before I pull ze trigger.
i know it will fit, I'm worry about standards compliance though because of this, it just sounds ominous:
Compatible with miniSDHC host devices; not compatible with standard miniSD-enabled devices/readers
I have this card (bought it several weeks ago for a Q9m), and it works fine in my Q9c.
That just means that a standard old card reader won't read/write to the card. You need to have a card reader that is compatible with SDHC. I ended up buying this one:
$6.99, free ground shipping, and it does the job!
I ordered this card from buy.com for my q9c. Just got the card and it was recognized right away with no problems. Great deal for a 4gb when using google checkout.
I just ordered 1...there are drivers somewhere over at ppcgeeks.com for the device to be read on a pc I believe
But the Q9c also take non-HC miniSD right?
Why we need such big capacity?
Sorry about all the questions, first time PDA user here.
Yes, it should work with regular (non-SDHC) miniSD cards. The Q9m I had before my Q9c came packaged with a non-SDHC microSD card (with miniSD adapter), and it worked just fine. I would presume it would be the same with the Q9c.
Thanks for your prompt reply:wink:
