    correct me if im wrong but i thought the max memory for an sd card in a phone was 16gb. I dont think they have made support for 32 gb yet although i believe its coming soon.
    also definitely look into going with brand names on ebay. The no name things are sometimes just as good but other times they are terrible. This is something i wouldn't risk it with. I just bought a 16gb sandisk for 25$ or something like that and there were still 10 available. Free shipping by the way. Also buy it now is the best option for ebay, normally the auctions take forever and you aren't garunteed the item.

    It looks like a class 2 card. Even if the HTC can use it., it is still not worth it. You want to have choppy videos and music? Class 6 or better, otherwise, try again.

    class 2 will play just fine. the faster speeds will just benefit transfer speeds

    I have to disagree. I have 5 different micro sd cards , (2) 2GBs, (2) 8GBs and (1) 16GB card and only one of them is a class 6 and the rest are class 2. I can tell no difference whatsoever in video or music playback between the cards.

    There is absolutely no reason to encode your videos at 6000kbs so the only aspect a class 6 card effects is tranfer of media to and from a PC. You would need 1500kbs max for video playback on the Incredible and that falls well within a class 2 cards capabilities.

    Some people have no idea what they are talking about. Class 2 is fine. HTC says the incredible supports 32gb.

    All my videos are 30000-7000kbs. I don't re-encode just for the Incredible; I use the same files for different players/sources. I use the same card for other players/media playback devices.

    Then all your doing is wasting precious battery on your Incredible. I don't think most people would be doing that at this point In time. To each his own ;)

    I talked to Sandisk (who does 'make' a 32gb microSDHC even though you can't buy it anywhere) and they say the Inc does support 32gb.

    I'd buy one if it were avail and reasonably price, but price at more than the phone was, we'll, that's just not happening.

    If there were a class 6+ out there at a reasonable price I'd go that way, but I can't even find a retailer who has one, much less class 6 and reasonable.

    These feebay cards seem to be going in the $30 range. I guess I'll just have to try one unless someone can provide a link to a better one.

    Most cheap flash memory from ebay and China end up being extremely slow drives and less memory than actually stated. They might tinker with it to show that it has 16GB, but if you try to actually put 16GB in there, it won't fit. It can be possibly only 2GB or less.

    Battery may be wasted but it saves time re-encode a video for a laptop, re-encoding again for the iPad, re-encoding again for the Incredible, re-encoding again for a W-TV device, re-encoding again for..... So, Class 2 , again is a bit useless to many people. If it is 11:30, I have a client meeting in 15 minutes to show a video, I'm not gonna re-encode and Q/A check to see if there are artifacts. I'm also not going to waste 30 minutes copying 12Gb worth of files either. Again.. Class 2 is useless. Like you say, to each their own.

    A 32gb card in the DInc would rule. I hope real ones come out soon.

    I have seen reports that 32gig will work but you need to format the card in your computer first the phone will not do that.

    I'd be careful about buying from ebay, there are a lot of fake micro sd cards floating around on ebay. And while they still make function properly, the fake ones tend to be slower overall, most likely will fail after a certain number of months, and without warranty from the manufacturer. I've been searching for a number of days on a decent price for a GENUINE 16gb Sandisk, the best i have found is $39 shipped directly from Amazon itself.

    This is a question for those who have used both Class 2 and Class 6 card and have TONS of music, do you guys notice a difference in load times when switching between Artist/Albums/Genres? I know class rating designates write speeds, but i am just curious if there is a noticeable difference in read speeds.

    You seem to be in a unique situation. This may be what you "need" but class 6, for the average joe, is pointless. It's just wasting money when a class 2 works just as well.


    This is not the case. No choppy video or music. Longer transfer times of big files at the most. No effect on playback as the DI cannot make use of the faster speeds anyway.

    Care to explain me how:

    I run Quicktime Pro to export a source 1080p using the "export to web function" which creates a WVGA file.
    It creates a 3000kbps H.264 file "Desktop file" that doesn't play w/ a Class 2. Class 4 will play but I get about 18-20 fps. . Class 6 will play 24 fps (not ideal but very useable). The only thing I do is rename the file movie-desktop.m4v to movie-desktop.mp4

    Maybe I am just imagining a 45 minute video I have will play in my 8gb class 6 card when it doesn't on a lower class card.

    Because you are telling the OP and everyone else in this thread that they must have a class 6 card or their video and music will be choppy which is simply not true.

    Like Brandon said, you are in a unique situation that doesn't really apply to the norm so stop telling people they have to have a class 6 card.

    I'm not going to disagree and say a Class 2 is worthless, but can you explain to me why these files (see my attachment) don't ever play with any CLASS 2 cards.

    They play just fine on my Class 6. And this situation IS NORMAL if you are using a mac; importing home videos from Imovie and exporting them out. Mac users do this all the time.

    When I say normal, I mean, I take my movies from my Canon Point and Shoot. I piece a bunch of them together in iMovie or grab a slideshow from iPhoto and export to "Apple TV" or "Ipad" which makes these files with these data-rates. I synch them to my iPad and they play. I can't sync on my HTC so I copy the files over via USB. This is not out-of-the-ordinary.

    Now all your doing is instigating. You already know why they wont play on the class 2 card, because you don't have the initiative to encode them for the intended device.

    No, I don't think so. This device is billed as "incredible"

    People are working w/ HD or near HD quality content. If you are satisfied with low-bitrate .3gp, 640x480 type videos, than OK, I'll agree with you that Class 2 is OK. But someone just said the DI is not capable of doing more,

    quote " as the DI cannot make use of the faster speeds anyway. "

    Well, it surely can take use of the faster speed. a WVGA file at 3-4000 kps does in fact play on the DI w/ a faster card. People now have point-n-shoot cameras that shoot 720p. All new computers have editing/movie making software that can output high bitrate movies. Nothing out of the ordinary. Wouldn't it make sense to export with one optimal settings for a range of devices and a range of social networks (youtube, vimeo, facebook)? Hence, I call the Class 2 cards useless.

    You are instigating, but I'll take the bait, you seem to enjoy Apple's products, so what's the max GB card the iphone can hold? Incredibly enough, it can't accept any external memory. Also, why are you worried about the difference between 720P and 1080P on a 4 inch screen? There is no difference. In TV's you have to go over 40 inches to tell a difference between 720P and 1080P.

    Keep it friendly fellas, as far as the original question 32gb cards can be used by the incredible, but Android does not support it yet.
