Talking ebooks on more than one sdcard

Will the reader keep track of them if you have your books on several cards? I have heard that with more than 150 books on the device, it gets awfully slow, and I am nearing the 100 mark, I wonder If I could use more than one card.
Thanks,
Paul

Paul--Each time you switch cards, the reader will re-create it's index. So, if you have a large amount of books on your cards, it could take awhile to start up after you first put a card in.

That said, I have about 200 books on the internal memory and don't notice my reader being slow at all. I think the slowness people are referring to is what happens when they first start the reader up after changing the contents on it.

Yes I have noticed that. doesn't bother me though, I just set it aside, work on my computer a little longer , and then it's ready. I generally download a file, alter it the way I prefer and then recompile it using Calbre's command line tools. i just do them in batches of three or four.

So what you are saying is like if i have about a 100 books on each card, there will be a little delay while the 505 recreates a database of the books when I change cards?
