Need some help with SD cards.

OK Guys im planning to buy a SD card for my lovable Fuze.Peolple have had trouble with their cards especially the refreshing database failure.Is it a common problem or is it something else?

 

Does the increase in class of the sd card improve the performance of the fuze like refreshing takes less time? 

 

Thanks,

My microsdhc was a SanDisk class 2 and with the last firmware my refresh was quicker than before. I think the class of the card only matters when you're loading stuff onto it.

Common problem? What are you basing this on? I haven't heard or read anything about a 'refreshing database problem'. Except from those that have bad ID3 tags.

I've got an e260 v2 & Fuze v1. I've never seen that.

 

My 4G Fuze + 8G class 2 uSD takes about 2m 10s to refresh. I have ~2200 tracks (all MP3), and both sets of memory are nearly full.

 

I noticed early on that there are differences in the way ID3 tags  are handled between internal memory and the uSD. This post is about what I discovered for the e260, but it also appears to be valid for the Fuze. It may have changed for the Fuze with the latest firmware that supports v2.4 tags - but I haven't re-run my tests...

 

There is another difference in the way the uSD is treated - content on the card is visible to a host PC in both MTP and MSC modes, whereas content in internal memory is only visible in the mode it was transferred to the Fuze.

 

 

The only real uSD problem I had was with the e260, where the detent mechanism started to fail, and the reader would shoot the uSD card across the room when it felt like it! They are quite difficult to find if you didn't spot where they land... Anyway, SanDisk fixed that under RMA Smiley Happy

I recall seeing problems with Kingston (not sure specifically what they were), and I've heard of people complaining of refresh times of over 40 minutes. I got a 2GB card, and video pauses terribly on it (I put it in my phone, where I can record and play video just fine). I can't honestly say that the Fuze has great compatibility. You might get some other brand to work, but I'd recommend using Sandisk cards. I haven't heard of anyone having problems with those.

Re: Need some help with SD cards.

i've got SanDisk, A-Data, Transcend, Kingston and Centron Cards and they are all fine with the fuze. Definately stick with class 4 or 6.

 

8GB Class 4 or 6 microSD cardsd are @ $20 or less on Buy.com and newegg all the time. supermediastore.com has deals too, but buy/egg usually have the free shipping.

 

cheapest i've seen for a class 2 16GB microSD card is $45

when i see a class 4 or 6 in that range, i'll be purchasing one.

I had a class 2 for 11 months, and it worked fine, I don't know why you would waste the money on a class 4 or 6.

Some places might have 8 GB class 4 or class 6 micro SDHC cards for around $20. A class 6 card will load files from the PC at around 3x the speed of a class 2 card. If someone changes their music frequently, it is worth paying a bit more for a class 6 card. If someone rarely changes their music though, then a class 2 card is good enough.
