There are many who are clamoring for it, both with the Fuze and Clip. I started out with my Fuze hooked to the stereo, then later on just hooked the cord into the computer instead, so the whole collection is there, running into the stereo. I just hope the new models come out when I'm not broke.Smiley Wink

Everybody wants something different with their players.  I came to Sandisk after having one of those ultra-high capacity machines; and I am so happy that I did.  I hated that beast of a high capacity unit.  It was like carrying around a lunchbox; not exactly the panacea of portablility. No machine made is going to store my entire collection anyway, so it is little concern to me that the clip and fuze have only 8GB of internal storage.  I have a handful of memory cards and when I want something new, I just simply pop in a different card (that is if I'm using the fuze).....

 

I know there are plenty here that disagree with me, but maybe Sandisk can strike a happy balance in the future.  Have an ultra-capacity machine AND a fuze or clip-type unit in the line for those that are more concerned with portability than capacity.

Re: Any plans for a 16gb?

My brother got me a 16GB SanDisk microSD card for $49.99 at Office Depot this past Saturday when he got his new laptop.  It was normally $99.99.  So, now I have a 20GB Fuze!

Re: Any plans for a 16gb?

16 gb micro SD cards are > $40 now if you search

 

J&R had a deal for $34 shipped, but it's OOS right now.

 

seriously i've found writing to the internal memory on the fuze is a lot slower than writing to a microsd card in an adapter.

(and it rocks to be able to share microSD cards with other folks)

Re: Any plans for a 16gb?

So is 16gb Micro SD card the limit for the Fuze, or is the limit only due to 16gb being the largest card currently available?

Re: Any plans for a 16gb?

32GB is the max for microSDHC. Sandisk is in the process of making them (some test units were available last spring), and is supposed to start shipping this summer. The will probably be pricey, though!

"32GB is the max for microSDHC. Sandisk is in the process of making them (some test units were available last spring), and is supposed to start shipping this summer. The will probably be pricey, though!"

 

but could the Fuze handle this size of 32GB (theoretically?)

Yes. The Fuze is designed to be compatible with all cards that comply with the microSD or microSDHC specs. The HC spec goes up to 32 GB.
