SD card support

Has anyone used higher capacity SD cards? I'm looking at 32Gb cards (SDHC) or 64Gb (SDXC).

I think Lexmark makes some of the best ones on the market, should be able to find them at photography stores if some more mainstream store like best buy doesn't already have them.

I think 32s are already okay, and I would think 64s too, but haven't tried either...

I do have a 32. It is the maximum size supported according to the manual. One think to consider is the larger the card the more time it takes to load. Mine takes about 30sec. To load.

Thanks. I had not thought about the time it takes to load.
Can you put playlist files on the SD card?

Haven't try playlist on the Q3, but my wife's Tiguan doesn't recognize them. So my guess is not.

That too, timing is a concern, the other concern is if the card crashes, at least with what you have to put on them split onto multiple cards you don't have that issue as much.

I finally figured out the play lists ..

I built my playlists from my iTunes library (File > Library > Export Playlist)
I then edited the resulting M3U file using textwrangler.

Here are the key changes I made were:
1. remove the text "EXTM3U" from the first line
2. change the file path to be referenced from the root of the SD card. So instead of "/Users/doug/Music/iTunes/iTunes Media/Music/P.D. James/Private Patient/" becomes just "P.D. James/Private Patient/"
3. If you are using Mac OSX or Linux, change the "/" to "\"
4. Save the file in Windows format (which uses CRLF as opposed to CR for the end of line).
5. Save the playlist to the root of the SD card, it will not work in a sub-directory.

I saved the mp3 files in subdirectories in the layout of /Author/Book/track.mp3

Example:

#
#EXTINF :11,Intro A - P.D. James
P.D. James\Private Patient\1-01 Intro A.mp3
#EXTINF :16,Intro B - P.D. James
P.D. James\Private Patient\1-02 Intro B.mp3
#EXTINF :32,Authors Note - P.D. James
P.D. James\Private Patient\1-03 Authors Note.mp3
#EXTINF :200,Book One - Chapter 1a - P.D. James
P.D. James\Private Patient\1-04 Book One - Chapter 1a.mp3
