SanDisk release 4 gigabyte SD card

SanDisk has announced the latest upgrade to its Secure Digital memory card family. The SD High Capacity (SDHC) 4GB flash card is available now for around $200.

All very impressive so far, however, don't rush out and buy one before you check to see that your digital device can actually recognise it.

To attain this memory hike, changes have had to be made to the Secure Digital specifications. At the bottom of the press blurb lurks the warning, 'Not all devices support SDHC 4.0GB cards. Please contact your device manufacturer for details. To ensure compatibility, look for the SDHC Logo on the product or packaging of your new camera or digital camcorder.'

So, that's why they include 'as a bonus', a 'new MicroMate™ SD/SDHC compatible, high-speed USB 2.0 Reader' (yes, that's the silver thing in the picture) with every 4 gigabyte card. Just what we all need, yet another widget that we have to carry around with us everywhere we go!
