Hi,

I just got my DreamPlug and I'm planning to buy an SD card for more storage but I don't know the maximum size it will support.  Will I be able to use a 32GB SDHC Class 6 with it?

32GB SDHC should be OK. I have used 32GB in Sheevaplugs.
The microSD I am not sure, I know 8GB uSD works OK.
My understanding is the 64GB is SDXC, which is (I believe) not supported by Dreamplugs.

Thanks a lot, Spinfex.  I will get a 32GB SDHC and test if it is readable from DreamPlug.  I didn't know that there is an SDXC which can be up to 2TB.  I haven't seen it sold anywhere.

Part of the spec for SDXC is that the file-system has to be xfat(?), which is a proprietary Microsoft file-system.  There are, I believe, some digital camera that support it.

Thanks for the additional info about SDXC, Birdman.  exFAT as you said, is a Microsoft prioprietary filesystem.

Just want to leave a note that 32GB SDHC Class6 works fine with DreamPlug.
The card was detected right away after insertion and mounted on /media/usb2.
After a reboot, it was automatically mounted on /media/usb0.
