Upgrading firmware from SD or SDHC card bigger than 1G?

Hello,

Can anybody share experience with me about upgrading the Hanlin V3+ reader?
I read on the chinese web that i should be upgrading from basic SD card 1G size formated to 16 FAT?They are hard to buy these days and seems like a bit waste of money if i want to use bigger card later or faster SDHC 4G or bigger.
Isit possible to upgrade the firmware from SDHC card of bigger sizes like 2-16G?

thank you for answer

D.

No problem with my own 4g, 16g should be no problem.
Recommendations to buy micro SDHC(tf card), you can use in a variety of devices

Buy a sd card slot, tf card inserted in the slot.

Mobile phones, cameras and other devices more and more use of tf, tf therefore have an advantage

Technically 4G cards are SDHC and should always be formatted in FAT32. If you look around a 2G or less card can be found for about $5 and would be preferable. I suppose you might be able to partition a 4Gig card. Make the first partition 1 G and then format it FAT. 1G or less is the preferable card size for firmware upgrades on the V3.

thanks for the suggestion,but iam affraid that windows cant make partition on removable disks.i tried trought disk manager in windows and the option is greyed out.

Anymore suggestion?i think i will buy 1G sd card just for updating.I just thought if there is other way but i guess everybody has to do it with 1GB sd card.
to Wap502:Have you actually did update the firmware from your 4GB card?

thanks
