I was syncing quite a bit of music to my SE last night (with a 4GB SanDisk microSDHC card). After stuffing it with as many files as I could put on it, I put the remaining files that I wanted into the internal memory. With that done, it was unplugged and I waited for the “refresh database” to finish (I’m a patient person). It turns out that I had 1030 songs total on the SE under “System Info”. The display shows “xxx/000” while it is playing.
Having read other posts regarding the 100 song limit, I was a bit weary about the SE bricking on me. But after using it on the morning drive to work without any problems, I think that the limit is arbitrary. Since there’s a 250-song capacity in the internal memory of the SE and a 1000-song capacity on the expansion card, that’s a tentative total of 1250 songs I can theoretically sync to it. I haven’t pushed it that far…yet. But I am curious to see what would happen.
With all of that said, if you can deal with the display showing “xxx/000” while it is playing, more power to everyone. If any other developments arise, I’ll make sure to let everyone here know…
