Supported memory cards

Can people please post here the manufacturer/model/size/type (compact flash or sd) of the memory cards they have tried to use with their iLiads and if they worked or not?

I guess this would be useful for people interested in buying memory cards. I would set up a Wiki table for this, but I have no idea of how to do it

I started using a Nytech 256M card but found that to be only intermittantly recognised. Then I switched to a PNY 512M card and that's fine (modulo having to reinsert it after bootup to get it recognised, normal v2.4 behaviour). Once recognised it stays recognised, unlike the other.

Both SD, BTW.

Viking International 1gb CF cards. Both work, and have no problems being recognised.

Anyone tried the really big cards yet?

I'm using a Sandisk 1G. No other description on the card, but it seems to be working fine.

Has anyone tried 2gb...? Or is 1Gb as good as it gets...? And has anyone tried using a SD Card & CF Card at the same time...? At the moment I've got 2Gb USB stick that works fine (as long you stick it in on boot up)

Btw, I've added a page to the wiki : http://wiki.mobileread.com/wiki/Iliad_Memorycards_list

I had a SanDisk 512MB CF card + a 256MB USB Stick + a 1GB Transcend SD card inside at the same time and no problems. Sometimes i have to reinsert a card or "re plugin" the USB stick until the iLead recognizes my memory cards/sticks ... thats all ...

When I saw people had success w/the 1G and problems w/2G I decided on 1G. That will hold more than enough books until I can reload. Also, the 1G Sandisk had a rebate so I got it for $25 USD. The bigger cards are still pretty expensive.

No, I did err, then corrected it. I work at a company that makes RF cal equipment - GHz comes more naturally than Gb when I type.

Oh, I thought you were making a pun -- "the cost of the bigger memory cards giga-hurts (gHz)"

Now I'm disappointed.
