I've tried to figure out, what SD cards are supported by N+2.


Most answers suggest a 2MB MicroSD. My problem is to purchase such one. Most stores do not have MicroSD anymore.


Is 2MB MicroSD the limitation for N+P?

Somewhere I've read that exists a 4.1beta which supports also SDHC. But I didn't find any hint, if this beta is included in 4.3 I'm currently using.



What is the most large SD card I can use on N+P (4.3)?

How must it be formatted (FAT)?

I believe that 2GB is the limitation for the size of the SD card. My problem is that I now have some difficulty finding the 2GB cards.

The recommended size is up to 2 GB and these are available through Amazon.

Why is there a limit? Is it the MCU?

Has to be 2G or lower, I tried everything with  larger cards, including making partition under 2G and formatting to FAT16, no luck.


Bought a 2G card off Amazon, everything just "worked" :)
