    Can anyone recommend a brand?

    No, I think you're wrong.
    Don't even listen to this guy. He's always stalking the DSTT section posting wrong and misleading information. Then he starts problems like derailing threads and harassing members.
    He's just another drwhojan.

    Like others have posted, 2GB is the maximum, anything with a higher capacity (sdhc) than that won't work.

    It's not about the size, actually. It's about the format.

    It only supports SD, not SDHC... so normally 2GB is considered the max because almost every 4GB and up is SDHC...

    But there ARE some 4GB SD cards... but they are very, very rare.

    So just assume it's 2GB.

    Then you thought wrong.

    R4DS can use every non-SDHC cards. Highest possible seize of these cards is 4 GB.

    Yes yes yes, in the extremely rare case of a non-SDHC 4 gb microSD card, yes it will work.
    Good luck to anyone trying to find one.
