    Will the droid be able to handle the 64gb sd card? I found one I have laying around and thought I might put it in there. Now, before I do I was wondering.. I'm rooted, will changing sd cards do anything to that?

    Also, aside from maybe the root files there really isnt much else on my sd card so I'm not really worried about losing anyhting.. I'd just rather hve 64 gb then the 16 in there now!

    Droid only accepts microSD and the largest microSD card you can get is 32GB.

    Are you sure? It went into mine fine and I already ran a back up on the sdcard once.. Can someone confirm/deny this?

    L-O-Freakin'-L! :D

    ...I saw this coming from your first post, was glad to see you figured it out. :)

    I found a 16MB SD card this morning in one of my desk drawers, thought it was a spare 16GB for a second, so I know how you feel. :)

    I think it's more that there's no 64GB MicroSD cards out there at the moment. I would expect them to work with the Droid when they come out, but this is pure speculation.

    OH WOW GUYS! I just found a 256 gigabyte... nevermind. :D

    Apparently (from a thread in the Lounge) the Bionic can take the new 64GB microSDXC cards and they work! I imagine all phones from here on out will support it. SO much for high capacity: but I'm not sure about the SPEED of the card.

    EDIT: According to the SanDisk website, the 64GB card sports a 30MB/sec read speed. Write speeds slightly lower, but I'm confident that it would read/write 1080P video smoothly.

    Man it doesn't seem all that long ago when we were all screamin that the 32gb card was too much at $200+. Quick check and, Yup, 32gb card at amazon for less than $40. Too bad none of us had patience.:D
