SDHC Support

Does the PRS-T2 support SDHC? Or only SD?

Specs: http://reviews.cnet.com/e-book-reade...-35416657.html

What are your experiences regarding types of MicroSD(HC) cards?

Micro SDHC should work fine, Micro sdxc I'm not positive about but it's possible saying that I think anything over an 8gb card is probably a waste as that's what I'm using I have about 2,500 books loaded and barely using a single gb.

I'm using one of these in my T1 if it helps.

Hello, further to the question, if I root my PRS-T2 (install Android), will it then accept a 64gb micro-sd card? Assuming the 32gb limitation is from the original Sony firmware.

The 32GB is a hardware limit... sdxc needs different hardware... Android will not magically change something without sdxc connectivity to have it... sorry bu that's reality...

Not necessarily I have a 64gb card in my Galaxy S Advance smartphone and have access to all of it despite the phone officially claiming to support only 32gb cards.

From forum posts I've read online as well you would be surprised at how often these cards will work with something that doesn't officially support them, unfortunately the only real way to know for sure is to put one in the device.

Then again how could anyone use possibly use 64gb in epubs or browse a library of that size it's an insane amount of space when you consider the tiny sizes of book files.
