Just for interest sake, what brand and size SD card are you using?
Sandisk 16gb class 4
Sandisk 32GB class4
... works fine
Same as Harry
Remember the first rule of SD cards: don't buy off Ebay!
I use a PNY 16gb class 2,haven't had any problems with it.
The same as Harry and Hadron
Kingston 16GB class 10 (desire will handle it as a class 6) but its "future proof"
***Waits for Hadron to line me up against a wall and shoot me.
Can you line one person up?
Tou-bloody-che. So silly I had to throw tmesis in to make myself feel better. Both the word and an example
hey harry where can i get one of those 32gb cards. my ebay card is no good... cheers
Class 4 16GB PNY, works fine, no complaints.
Ditto to this.
Thank you for the info.
If I have a card and made it into a gold and then down the line get another(bigger) card which i want to make into a gold do i then just make a backup and transfer everything to the new one? Is it that simple or do I need to do anything else?
Gold card images are specific only to the card you made it for. if you're keeping the old card, just leave that as the gold card and use your new card normally.
Ok, am I right in thinking that i need a goldcard to root my phone but after that i can use any other card?
Sorry for being so thick but am only starting to delve deeper into the realm of my smart phone ...
You dont need a gold card to root the phone. have a read of the rooting FAQ's
A few months ago I would be sure that I get a Sandisk class 4 with 32GB
So I purchased the card from cyberport.de
Yeah, found it, should have read the whole FAQ and not skipping bits ...S-:
If I remember correct I saw the BIG one (64mb / 4) in dixon in T5 duty free but not very competitive priced.
As I know, most phones only support up to 32GB cards.
So we can wait a little for to buy 64GB
I have a Class 2 4GB Samsung that came with the phone but thinking of replacing it.
Does a better Class of card make a massive difference in performance?
I wouldn't know what to put on a 64 card .......
Got mine from Amazon.
16gb class 4 card off ebay, Sandisk, I think. As has been said, ebay is not to be trusted for such things - I ran a benchmark test on it and it exceeded class 6!
Works just fine.
I could fill it.
