Micro SD card in Sony Ebook

Has anyone tried to use a Micro SD card with the SD adapter in a Sony Ebook? My phone takes a Micro SD card and I was thinking how wonderful it would be if it would work in the Sony Ebook reader also.

There's no reason I can think of that it wouldn't work. And trying it out shouldn't mess anything up.

I believe others have tried and reported that is does work.

Yep, MicroSD in the standard SD adapter definitely WORKS FINE in my PRS-650.

The one I haven't had a chance to try yet, and am wondering about, is the Sony MemoryStick Duo to MicroSD adapters (which you can find on Amazon and elsewhere)

If that works, you could potentially use TWO 32GB Micro SD cards side-by-side to get an incredible 65 Giga Bytes of usable onboard storage.

The only caveat I would add, is that though this might work fine on the new 650 and 950, I am not sure that the older models with SD slots supported SDHC. Since MicroSD cards are nearly all SDHC now, this may cause issues on older readers.

SDHC support introduced for PRS505 with ePub firmware update and available in all models since (as long as they have a card slot) so fine in 505, 600, 700, 900, 350, 650 and 950...

That's good to know -

Now if we could just get them to add about a half dozen user selectable fonts . . .
