Cybook supports SDHC card?

Hello personnel,

I will receive my cybook at the beginning month of May. After several search (cybook vs iliad).

I would like to know whether the Cybook supports SDHC card?

First,

This is not the Bookeen website, so any answer here will most probably be made by other owners of the Cybook.

Second, the short answer is NO. You want a basic SD card of 2 gigabytes capacity (or smaller, I use 1GB cards with no problem) for your Cybook.

Hi Derek.

First, I know that this is not the site of bookeen.

Second, I have a Palm TX that does not support SDHC card. When bought the TX bought also a 4gb SDHC card, but I am not using. I thought that the Cybook, to be modern, support SDHC card.

Nope. They're pretty clear that the Cybook only supports 2gb in the literature on their site. And if it supported SDHC instead of SD, I'm sure they would have noted that.

However it could possible be supported by a firmware update. The only difference in the file system on the card. The hard ware/interface is the same.

Nope, it's the SD protocol which is changed in SDHC (different addressing system). It might be possible depending on how the card slot is connected. If they used the built-in controller of the CPU or used a separate non-SDHC controller, then firmware upgrade to SDHC will likely be impossible.

If they used the built-in SD controller of the S3C2410, there are hints it should be SDHC-capable:

http://wiki.openmoko.org/wiki/Neo197...e#microSD-Card

The Neo1973 uses the same S3C2410 as the Cybook.

However, the Samsung tech brief for it (http://www.samsung.com/global/busine...artnum=S3C2410) only mentions 'SD Host interface version 1.0', which isn't promising...

That what I thought.

For the Cybook supports SDCH card, we need an update of firmware? Or upgrade your hardware?

Well, but a 1Gb SD card is good size (for my use).

Because the Bookeen add support for 4gb cards if the cybook no contains search engine? I believe it is complicated manage more than 200 ebooks.

Well, you'd probably have to upgrade both. And that would be much more expensive than just buying a new unit with the upgraded feature set.

And I agree that searching through several hundred ebooks for the next one you want to read is difficult at this time.
