Is a TF card a Micro SD or Micro SDHC card?

pandddapanddda

Non-techie here! Just bought an cheap Chinese £80 tablet of Amazon, and it has a 'TF Card' slot. Have Googled myself into a stupor as to what I'm meant to be sticking in the slot - Micro SD or Micro SDHC? I can't find any non-HC 16GB cards, which is what it says the max for the device is, but I read that HC cards aren't compatible as TF...that was on Yahoo answers tho, so might be buttox.

Link to what I bought in first post. Thanks for any help!

Edit...and is it likely to matter what class card it is?

    TF refers to the MicroSD form factor, but it could be MicroSD or MicroSDHC

    Thanks. So you reckon if I buy a 16GB Micro SDHC it should do the job?

    from your link
    Memory : 512mb DDR II / 8gb NAND Flash - upgradeable by Micro SD memory card (max 16GB)

    so yes that should be fine

    Thanks - have ordered the Kingston one on the deal here. Just wasn't sure about the SD/SDHC business as I know I've got a camera that won't work with SDHC, but maybe because it's quite old.
    Thanks for the help!

    Is the SD card faster than the SDHC ? What is the difference ?

    SDHC is a High capacity SD card. The speed of it depends on the Class, I think. So a class 8 SDHC card will be faster than a Class 2. SD are generally older I think, and most new devices will accept either, but some older devices will only accept SD rather than SDHC. You might struggle to find SD cards that aren't HC now, and they will have smaller memory capacity.

    I think that although they are sold and described as 'SD' cards, the vast majority of SD cards are actually SDHC cards now.

    Micro SD cards up up to specific recommendations for the device only, ie if recommended up to 16gb then that is the devices maximum capacity

    My Nobis tablet ask for a TF card but I put a micro SD card inThe micro SD card shows up on the storage area but it does not allow me to move any data to the SD card. Well it gives me the option to move any apps to the SD card and I have moved all of my apps over to the SD card but when I click on the storage it still shows that there's no data on my SD card. hope I'm making sense please help.

    Hello, I've just been reading this as I have a tablet that says tf below the card reader and everywhere I've looked says that a tf card is just a micro sd card. So I have tried my micro SD cards in it and they work, the tablet will read and write to them but I have to hold them in, they don't click into place or anything, if I let go the just pop out, any advice please?

    with pretty much with all devices of technology, the slot should be spring loaded, as you say it springs out when you let go...you may have to push it in a bit further for it mechanism to latch on to the card.
