Sandisk 4gb MicoSD Card

[ Edited ]
My wonderful girldfriend bought me a 4gb MicroSD card for my birthday to put into my Sansa Express 1GB and be able to put my full music collection into it.

I pop it in all excited and plug it up and low and behond it doesn't work. The Sansa won't see it and it won't upload files. I read out here and to my disapointment I see that back in July people have asked when it would work and there is no response.

When will a 4gb SHDC Micro SD card work with the Sansa Express?

The last I knew the Express does not work with microSDHC.

Anyone know when an update will be available to the firmware to allow it to use SHDC cards?

There is no set date when SanDisk will release their firmware.

OK, does anyone know if they plan on supporting SDHC on the Sansa Express?

This is aggrivating to say the least, it would be nice if someone from Sandisk would step up here.

I looked all over the Sansa Express descriptions, manuals, specs, and support information and there is NOTHING that says it will not accept over a 2GB card, ANYWHERE.

Now, I am stuck with a 4GB card that has been opened and the store will not return it or exchange it and it will not work in the player. Also, Sandisk won't say if there will be a firmware update that will update the player and when it will be released.

If I wasn't out the $68 I paid for the card I wouldn't care as the player is a great player but this is terrible.

HEY SANDISK, STEP UP AND TELL PEOPLE! You have a stupid "compatibility" checker that is listed on your site on each products page but it doesn't even include your own products!

Off to buy a Creative Zen that supports the card or sell the card. Thanks for nothing Sandisk.

You can get an e200 then put Rockbox on it.  That will support microSDHC card.

You are correct there but from what the Rockbox people say it doesn't work with Rhapsody subscrition music and that is where i get most of my music from.
