SanDisk Debuts 4GB SD Card
SanDisk today rolled out what they are calling the industry’s highest capacity SD card. The new 4GB SD High Capacity (SDHC) card is priced at $199.99 and should be available this month.
The 4GB SDHC card, which comes bundled with a compatible USB reader, is based off of the SDHC specification. This specification, developed by the SD Association, is a completely new design that is required for cards and hosts to support 4GB to 32GB capacities and adhere to the SD 2.00 specification. SDHC cards require an SDHC-compatible reader to be read properly. The SanDisk 4GB SDHC card, which has a rating with a minimum data transfer rate of 2MB/sec, reportedly can store more than 2,000 high-resolution pictures, more than 1,000 digital songs or up to 8 hours of MPEG-4 video.
It should be noted that not all devices support the new SDHC standard. To ensure compatibility, one needs to look for the SDHC logo on the product or its packaging.
