Re: This has to be the largest capacity Flash Drive ever made

Speaking of memory, my new car head unit takes SD cards... but has a 512 MB limit.

Do you know how hard it is to find a 512 MB SD card anywhere other than eBay?

And I remember sitting around my college apartment with my comp science major roommate looking at a computer catalog and being amazed at the 1GB hard drive they had for sale. Why would anybody need a hard drive that big? What would they put on it? (this was in '90)

What happens if you put a 1GB card in it? Often times it will work, but will only use 512mb of the card

If the unit supports 512mb, I don't see why it wouldn't support up to 2GB.

They have a school deal going on right now: Free iTouch with purchase of a MacBook Pro. Maybe making room for new models.

The problem with these new large flash drives, they are too slow for write. I think it's time to implement some SSD technology to improve the performance.

64GB is not so unbelieveable anymore.

I tried a 2GB SD card last night, it had fourteen albums on it. The head unit did read it but only would play seven of them.

Those six albums were a total of 960 MB in size. Strange. So it is playing SD cards over 512 MB, but it's not clear how much it can recognize.
