Notsure micro SD card 32gb?

Hey guys!

I'm not much of a technological wizard, and so was wonder if you could give me a hand.

I was browsing the internet for micro SD cards for my Desire HD, and came across these lot of Kingston cards.

Would the 16 or 32gb ones work? I don't understand what is meant by class etc, so would the class 4 ones available from Kingston work?

Would appreciate your help

Thanks!

And would a microSDHC card work? Or do I need just a microSD card?

Thanks

Hey Nas, welcome to AF!

Class denotes the read/write speed of the card, the bigger the number the better. I generally wouldn't go below Class 6 (especially if you want to record HD Video), but I've heard others say 4 is fine.

I think SDHC has different dimensions? I'll do a bit of digging for you if like? Micro SD is fine though. Rather than go for Kingston directly from the site, you might want to check out play.com, they generally have quite good deals on Micro SD Cards, I managed to pick up a 16GB, Class 10, Micro SD for £17.99. I've had it about a year and it's still going stong.

Hope that helps.

Thanks for the welcome and thanj you very much for the information!
I don't really use my phone for video recording mainly photos and have many many thousands of them! So I'm not too fussed about HD video capturing.
But thanks for the info nonetheless. I'll try and find a good value for money class 10 if I can.
I took out the stock card given with the phone and its a microSD HC so i guess that's fine.

Once again thank you ever so much for your help!

No problem and yeah, I was confusing SDHC with SDXC (which is the next step up).

SD stands for Secure Digital, and SDHC stands for Secure Digital High Capacity. Some older phones would have been designed to work with SD cards but not SDHC ones. The Desire HD is fine with either.

One thing to remember is that SDHC cards aren't the same as microSDHC cards - the former are larger and are generally used in cameras, micro cards are much smaller and are generally used in phones.

I have been using a 32GB class 4 microSDHC card in my phone for over a year without any problem, but I haven't done any serious video work and, because speeds have risen and prices fallen since I bought my card, I'd definitely try to find something faster if I needed to replace it.

A *LOT* of people have been scammed on eBay, receiving cards that superficially appeared to be what had been ordered, but which turn out to have only a much smaller capacity, so the advice generally given here is to only buy this type of item from a known, reputable source. I've used 7dayshop and MyMemory in the past and have found them helpful and reliable.

I use a class 4 micro SD card 32gb with my desire HD, stores 7,500 photos (sad I know), plus about 1200 songs, still couple of GB for good measure. I bought it amazon, had it for last 10 months, no issue (at moment) other than HTC sync clowning about recently and giving fail messages of fail to mouynt / unmount storage device. 9Nothing wrong with the card) as I tried it as disk drive on anothe rmachine and worked fine. The photos above includes a few daft videos of wife and I on hols, but nothing to advanced.

Been using a class 4 16 Gig card for about a month now. Had transferred everything off my 8 gig card as i was toiling for space. Just had a wee look just now and i have 4.9 Gig of free space left, i have no music and only a couple of pics on it. Wonder if its cm7 ARHD etc thats taking up the space on the card.

Yeah, if you've Nandroid backups on there, they take up a fair whack. CM7 is circa 700MB for me.

Did you delete the maps etc too?

Prez, any idea if there's an app that will tell you exactly what on your SD card is using what amount of space. Had a look about but cant seem to find anything.

ES File Explorer or Astro will do it. I prefer Astro though.

In Astro, hit menu, tools, SD Card usage. I've not used ES in a while, but I remember it being quite complicated (I think).

Cheers mate that worked a treat. Clockworkmod is the biggest culprit, 7.55 Gig.
Congrats on the Mod's position

Yeah, that's where your backups are stored, you should be safe to delete a lot of them, but it's handy to keep a couple just in case.

Just delete anything but your most recent (or move it to the PC).

Great app for looking at the space on your sd card - https://market.android.com/details?id=com.google.android.diskusage&feature=se arch_result#?t=W251bGwsMSwxLDEsImNvbS5nb29nbGUuYW5 kcm9pZC5kaXNrdXNhZ2UiXQ..

I have a new 16GB one coming in the post this week, is it just a case of copying/pasting everything in my current one onto the new one? I barely ever have room on my current one, can't wait for some more space!

A Nandroid backup is a backup you take of your current setup/OS in clockwork before you flash a new ROM/kernel/theme etc.

Basically if you don't flash stuff with clockwork/aren't rooted, you've no need to worry about it!

I bought a 32gb micro SD Class 4 card for my phone back in Ocotber and last week it died a death. I was lucky I only lost a few days photos because I had been forwarding the photos on by email to family. The company I used was mymemory.co.uk and they are sending me out a new one.

Has anyone else had any problems either with this company or this type of card?

I've used mymemory.co.uk and am happy to recommend them. I think the fact that they are sending you a new card is confirmation enough that they are a decent organisation. I know the card is still under guarantee, so they should replace it, but how many stories have we heard here about eBay sellers who never answer emails, let alone replace goods that have failed (or, more often, were never what was described). It's a fact of life that electronic devices do sometimes fail and I'd put it down to simple bad luck.

Received the memory card today so basically took 5 days to come. Pretty decent I think. I agree that sometimes electronic devices fail as the micro SD card is so small, maybe the tinniest of scratches can damage it. Just transferring over the files from old SD card just now. Bit of a bonus as well because the last SD card said it only had 28.4GB and the new one 30.0GB.

Hi all,


Very new to the forum and apologize for hijacking your thread but I am in the same boat as you.


So here it goes..


I have finally decided to take the plunge and root my HTC Desire HD phone.
Once of the requirements that I see is that it should have space on the SD Card and looking at mine, after deleting all photos,I have less than 1MB free.
I am planning to get the 32GB SD card and have come across the listing below on the net



Sandisk 32GB microSDHC Card micro SD HC 32G New Mobile Tablet Memory AU Stock

from what I can see it looks perfect but before I place the order could someone please advice if this is the right one and the buyer is trustworthy.
Also how do I transfer the stuff on my present 8GB card to the new card.
Thanks heaps for your advice.
Much appreciated.

Hey darkhome, there was no link there (to fight spam, you need to reach a certain amount of posts to be able to add post a link). If you try again, we'll be able to tell you if the card is legit.

Thanks.

I'd steer clear of eBay, it's a minefield for fake SD Cards, even if the seller looks legit. Do you have an Australian Amazon?

Thanks for the advice.
Dont think we have Australian Amazon but I am sure I can order from Amazon and it will get delivered.

Do you have a link to a SD card that will work??

Much appreciated.

Most genuine 32GB cards will work, if you steer clear of eBay and go with a reputable seller (locally or online), you should be ok.

Not sure about good retailers in Oz though, sorry.

darhome, like the pres says, your card will work (I have exactly the same spec), i store all my family pix on it (7,798!! at last count) plus 890 music tracks and have 3.4gb still available, plus I have most of my apps on the SD card. The trick is making sure your retailer is trustworthy, but the card you quote is the one you want.
