Micro SD or Micro SDHC for updating PB360?

I finally decided to update my firmware and noticed I need memory card which I don't have.

What is difference between SD and SDHC? Which one I should get? Is there some brand/size/class etc I should avoid because it might work badly with PB360?

SD cards are (officially) limited to 2GB.
SDHC's run up to 32GB.

Current card pricing has quite a few Class 10's running as cheap as the same brand Class 4's or 6'es so it probably won't make much sense to go for a slow card.

BTW, I vaguely remember there might be a way to upgrade without a flash card...
(Check the older threads.)
Still, a flash card really adds a lot of capability to the PB360. Just remember that nature abhors an empty flash card.

I doubt I will need the extra space. I use my PB only to read books and I think I can fit 400-500 in there without card. So I am kind of looking for cheapness first. Probably around 10€ or so.

EDIT: I just have vague memories of reading from this forums about some people having problems with cards of some brand with PB360 so I would like to avoid that.

Kameli, you don't need a memory card for firmware upgrade. You can copy the new firmware file to the root dir of your reader.
Please see also this thread http://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=62973 for reference.

Thanks. Bit late tho, I already bought one. It was only 10 € so not a bit deal. Kind of stupid for "official" instructions to not mention that at all.
