Any SD/SDHC card should work. You should take a look at this thread before you decide on a brand though.

Note, the DR does not officially support SDHC cards. Most people say they work, with the exception that you can not format them correctly in the DR. If you need to format it, you need to do it on a PC.

SD. Meaning usually 2GB cards or less, and you can format these cards directly from the DR. For higher capacities (SDHC cards), they *should* work if formatted to Fat32 on the PC.

Officially DR supports SD cards (not SDHC).

Does the micro SD work for the DR?

Which brand of standard SD do you folks recommend?

Thanks

Yes, with an adapter to stick it in properly.
Transcend 16Gb SDHC works flawlessly.

I mean if the micro SD work properly with correct formatting on the DR.

I see a lot of post mentioning that SDHC will not be formatted properly on the DR. So Iworry that will cause me some troubles sooner or later.

I don't know what differences there are between a regular SD card and a micro SD card, other than the form factor. If they're identical as far as the OS is concerned, then you shouldn't have any trouble.

The only thing iRex has said is that SDHC is not officially supported. I don't remember ever seeing them say anything about micro SD, or any other users talking about a micro SD card.
