Memory card question

I just have a quick question. What is the size limit for the usable memory card for the reader? I thought i read 1GB somewhere but i have heard comments about 2 so i am confused.

I am sorry if it is somewhere else in the forum, i couldn't find it,

2GB SD cards work just fine. Memory Stick Pro cards of 4GB+ are supported with the recent firmware upgrade.

To be honest, though, given the "flat file" structure of the Reader, memory cards are largely redundant unless you're storing MP3s or big "graphical" PDF files. You can easily store 100+ "normal" books in internal memory (the Reader compresses files in internal memory).
