Micro SD/SDHC Cards? Whats the difference?

Found 4th Dec 2009
Looking on 7dayshop.com as I need to order a couple of Micro SD cards for erm.. DSi backup purposes

Whats the difference betweeen SD and SDHC cards, and what would you recommend.

Really only need a 4gb max. I think they're about £6/7 each?

Sd cards only go up to 2gb whereas SDHC ( SD high capacity ) go higher however your device needs to be compatible ,

Ive got a brand new Micro SDHC 4 gig card from my phone you can have for £6 delivered?

they £6 from play so would only offer £3.50 as thats whats in my PP account.

So, would a 4gb SDHC fit into a R4i card which in turn would work on a DSi :thumbsup:

Not 100% true. Sandisk and Transcend both did a non-HC 4gb sd card. Also Sandisk did a 4gb non-HC microsd, but only sold in Japan. Not many about as enthusiasts horded them for their camera equipment.
