I think I found a new glitch!

So since I had gotten my Nook I've been using it to read Manga. I purchased a 16gb SD card to put manga on and everything had been going fine untill today. All of a sudden all the files in the My Documents folder disappeared. They still showed up on the computer but in the nook it would just read "no items". I tried everything to get them back including setting up an RMA for my Nook assuming something had to be wrong with the SD reading. Until I realized today I had added 4 gigs of new manga scans. I deleted down to about 9.5 gigs and everything came back. So apparently the maximum a Nook can currently read is about 10 gigs, not the previously assumed 16. this may also be due to the fact that it is a class 2 card, but I doubt it. Does anyone else have a 16 gig card and 16 gigs of crap they can put on it to verify this?

May be it was due to that 4 gig file? Did you try putting another 3-4 gig in or a smaller files in?

it wasn't

It wasn't a single 4 gig file. It was a group of files ranging between 20-300 megabytes that equaled around 4 gigs. I don't think fat32 can even accept 4 gig files. I'm pretty sure that the Nook can't handle over 10 gigs, but I'd like it if someone else could verify these findings so I know it's not just my Nook.

This is interesting. Have you tried post 1.2? I am looking to get a 16GB MicroSD for the Nook, but won't if the 10GB limit is still there.
