    Does the Supercard Lite work with 4GB Micro SD Cards, and if so,

    where can I get a 4GB card here in the UK. Thought I would be able to get one on ebay, but no luck so far.

    From what I understand, the biggest retail size of MicroSD cards is currently 2GB. There is one company working on a 4GB sized MicroSD, but those aren't even being sold yet...

    i dont see why 4GB micro SD card would not work. (if they made them) 4GB CF & SD work with 64kb clusters

    I have seen various references to a 4GB card, just assumed it was available.

    Lesson number one: You should never assume........

    the limit is the size of the chips being used.

    or if he means what i think he means, that is, the supercard limit. I think it may be related to the FAT16 file format.
