    Congratz, but this is not really the right section for this kind of thread...On the other hand, what class is it?

    2. IIRC only Sandisk have them and its $200 I don't know how you are getting one for $20 unless its a SDHC card. That's still a stretch but more believable.

    Also... I should mention that from what I have seen 4GB Non-SDHC MicroSD's (which should work on older cards like real R4s, so long as there is no limit beyond the lack of SDHC support) are rather hard to find and often prohibitively expensive for their capacity.

    Wait what? The 2 was to the class question. SDHC meant a SDHC not a micro SDHC.

    The way you said it sounds like the MicroSD Non-SDHC would be $200 and the MicroSDHC would be cheaper.
    But as I quoted, a MicroSD Non-SHDC over 4GB is not possible due to the Byte Addressing which supports up to 4GB.

    Your friend's dad is supremely magnanimous...I'm almost jealous, except that the most I would need could be covered with an 8gb that I wish I had.

    Man, 20 bucks for a 32GB SDHC is cheap. I wish I had a deal like that xD. Im out of space on my 4GB SDHC.

    I don't know... I wouldn't trust things like memory cards from ebay, especially if the deal looks too good to be true. I'd check if it's from someplace like Hong Kong or China.

    Actually, fakes usually just work by being formatted to a larger capacity than they actually can hold. So it may well say that it is 32 GB, while actually holding only about 2 GB (as an example). About the only way to check what the real capacity is is to fill it up completely and then check if a lot of the files are inacessible (ie: the filesystem thinks that they are there but they aren't- because they didn't fit).

    At that price I'm almost certain that you have a fake SD card. Sorry about that.

    If anything, it's more likely to be 32Gb (Gb / 8 = GB) or 4GB.
    And still, an SDHC one since a 4GB Non-HC SD card is ~3x that price.
