What is the max size sd card that works with the rezound? Also, anyone have a link or suggestion for a seller?
64GB is the max, although the ones you buy will not work out of the box as they typically have the incorrect file type, and will need to be formatted on a PC in FAT32 (and Windows Vista or newer requires a third-party tool to do it, XP can do it with it's built in format tool though). Most 32GB cards will work out of the box, but lately I have seen some that are not FAT32 either. Since ICS the Rezound has not had a built in formatting tool for SD card.
Amazon or Newegg is usually the way to go, although for SD cards I often get really good deals at Micro Center... The Rezound's access of an microSD is fairly slow, so anything faster than a Class 4 really won't give you any performance advantages in the phone itself (although it might if you move it to your PC).
I'm also using the Sandisk 64gb Class 10 from Amazon. Class 10 might be more than needed on your Rezound. The Class 10 should also work in a future phone if you upgrade.
Irregardless, as long as you have a card reader in your PC and get one with a micro to full SD adapter, it shouldn't matter... the process of formatting the card is simple, you can use GParted, Paragon Partition Manager, EaseUS Partition Master, or any number of free partition tools available, or FAT32Format (Command line or GUI) which can format up to 2TB in FAT32.
If you don't have a card reader, grab one on Amazon that supports SDHC, they are under $5, I have been using this one that is $3.69 and free Add-On shipping for some time with no issues, but any one should do as long as it supports SDHC.
as far as i know, all versions of windows can format it to fat32 without an external program. just right click the sd card in the "computer" folder, choose "format", then a menu should open. under "file system", change it to fat32, then click start.
none of the ones i have bought came formatted to fat32.
hope that helps
Sorry to hijack, but op seems to have answer. How do you save than restore files when you switch out the sd? Is it simply saving those files to pc then moving them back on to new sd card? Or will it not be a simple drag and drop sort of procedure? Thx.
Just a couple of weeks ago I got a Wi-Fi SD card for my camera, Transcend 32gb class 10, and formatted it fine on the camera itself. It replaced a SanDisk 32gb class 10 non Wi-Fi that I also formatted on the camera and both work fine for moving data to/from my tablets and desktop.
As far as your question above I've used both methods with success but prefer drag and drop of entire folders vs individual files. I drag and drop to the desktop then drag and drop back onto the new card if I'm not saving a backup of them onto the desktop
