    SDHC = Secure Digital High Capacity = SD 2.0. It's not compatible with current carts.

    If a cart stores its firmware on the microSD card(like the R4), there will not be any way to use microSDHC cards with it. If the firmware is stored in seperate memory on the flashcart, an update might be able to add microSDHC compatibility, but you'd need a regular microSD card to apply the update.

    R4 site claims that it supports up to 4GB microSD and seriously, until somebody tries it, we aren't 100% sure that it won't work. Maybe 99.9% but not 100%.

    It's possible that the R4/Simply supports SDHC, but I'd expect them to brag about it if it did.

    It's also possible that they support 4GB cards that are not SDHC, but rather non-compliant SD. The SD spec only goes up to 2 gigs. There are supposedly SD cards (the big ones, not microSD) that are bigger than that, but have limited compatibility because they do not conform to the standard.

    True. There are 4GB SD cards that aren't SDHC but don't comply to the standards set by the council. Just like RAM Manufactures produce DDR2-800 RAM to DDR2-1200 but JEDEC has DDR2-667 as the highest speed backed by the council.
