    I have just seen the 8GB Sandisk card online for £49.99 and am sorely tempted.

    Has anyone got or tried this card with the Supercard DS ONE SDHC.

    Rather expensive for an 8gb. You can pick up a 2gb one for less than £10 on ebay, so might as well get 4 of those [​IMG]

    But I digress, the Supercard supports SDHC and works fine with an 8gb card, if you're fine with paying the amount you are and you somehow need 8gb on there [​IMG]

    Well my 4GB Card is nearing full capacity, and I dont want the hassle of having multiple cards to lose.

    Storage size is very important for me, and I certainly dont think £50 is too bad for 8GB, the newer bigger capacitys are always more money than the smaller ones

    Well it depends how secure you keep your cards. I have two 2gb cards and they're more than enough (1 for music/movies, 1 for games). But I suppose it's up to the individual [​IMG] The point is that the 8gb cards work fine on the Supercard.

    do you know it works for sure though, I mean, do you know anyone who has actualy tried it, because I heard that the supercards had compatibility issues with the 6GB cards?

    Probably the official forums, where people WERE having issues with 6 GB cards. I think he's being smart to ask beforehand.

    Yeah that's been fixed up. My friend has a Supercard and an 8gb card with the newest firmware. No problems.

    Excellent Kie, thank you.

    One thing to note, I emailed Chris from SupercardStore.com and he says when you do the speed rating in the supercard software it comes up as a 6, where as my 4GB Toshiba card comes up as 26. He thinks that this might be a bug in the software though as it seems to run fine with games, without a problem.

    If I get one, I shall let you know how it fares (especialy using real time save which I think will be a good test of how quick it saves and loads to and from the card).

    Well my 8GB Sandisk Card arrived this morning.

    Some facts

    SD Speed Auto Test gives a result of 5 on my card

    In reality, everything works just the same as my 4GB card. No speed issues, in fact, tony hawks downhill jam seems to run even quicker. Real time save and load is still very quick.

    I am a very happy chappy.

    A guy on ebay is selling 8GB SanDisk MicroSDHC at £34.99 inc. P&P.

    I will buy one today. Great offer that.

    I bought mine on ebay as well, including VAT (it was not listed with VAT included which I didn't realise ) and postage it came to £41
