Default Oh the Possibilities (SDXC)

http://www.engadget.com/2009/01/07/s...mbps-transfer/

Quote:
Usually, we poo-poo any new memory card format what with the plethora of options available today. But when a new itty bitty card is announced with a ridiculous 2TB (2 terabyte!) maximum capacity (theoretical), well, we're willing to make the jump to a new format. SDXC (SD eXtended Capacity) relies upon Microsoft's exFAT file system and stores more than 4,000 RAW images, 100 HD movies, or 60 hours of HD recording with a transfer rate of up to 300MBps. The first batch of retail cards will hit before March with read/write speeds up to 104MBps in unknown capacities, though certainly less than 2TB on day one.
Ohhhhh the possibilities !

I guess you can put everything in FLAC and then some !

Very cool, I wonder if current sdhc readers can easily be made to play nice with it...

Well you're right...BUT maybe a firmware update could solve that?...I guess we'll wait to see if that's possibly.

I guess that an update of a FW to allow SDXCon D2 is pretty much impossible (regardless it it's technicality possible)....I hope to be disproved though!

If it is technicality possible, I guess that we have to hope for rockbox once again...

Short research leads me to believe it is primarily the adoption of exFAT ( the new MS filesystem ) that lets us have the higher capacity. I have not found anything that says the difference is electrical, or in the pins.
Sounds like a firmware update to me.

Several sources are reporting that SDXC cards are NOT compatible with SD/SDHC readers, not even by firmware upgrade. It's the hardware.

Yeah, bummer, a little more googling came up with this:

Quote:
The good news is that SDxc will have the same SD and microSD format- they have dropped miniSD for this new SDxc standard. New devices supporting SDxc will be backwards compatible with all your SD and SDHC cards. The bad news is that unlike the transition from SD to SDHC, which sometimes only required a firmware update, requires supporting chipsets. So don’t expect to simply firmware upgrade your current player for this new format.

Even if it did, we'd have maybe a 6000 file limit for it

Anyway...of course SD-XC won't be compatible with the current devices that can read SD and SD-HC.
The current SD-HC is capable of reaching 2TB, so why let the clients to have the possibility of keeping the current devices from "upgrading"?

It's the same story...companies should earn money some way right?
