    I just ordered a 16GB stick from China on eBay. Was $23 shipped. Hope it makes it to Canada.

    I don't think the 9000 supports a 32GB card. That would be sweet!

    my 16g card that i was so happy about was a hunk of crap. i couldnt get it to work right and then the front of card looked to be flaking off. i picked at it a little and the entire front of the card peeled off to reveal the words "micro sd". nothing about sandisk, size or class. i just got my money back thru paypal the other day. there is alot of fake cards being sold on ebay so be aware. i googled it and read a bunch of stories. damn theives. oh well at least i got my money back. lesson learned.

    also i want to add that the card was in packaging that appeared to be factory. i sent pics to sandisk and they confirmed it to be a fake. i thought for sure since it was in that packaging that it must be legit. wrong.

    I have warned against fake cards in several threads on these forums.

    Guys, get a good look at what you are buying and make sure it is a genuine SanDisk card. And be aware, at the moment SanDisk does not have a class 6 or above 16G card.

    On a whim, I went to the Sandisk website and it starts with a flash intro showing "memory full" then switches to a character that looks like a card with arms and legs and says "something big is coming", then it goes to the main site.

    I surmise the 32gb MicroSD cards are close......

    Mine was a fake. When it said it was 15.6GB after a format, I had a feeling something was wrong. I dumped about 8GB on it. Seemed to be ok. Put it in my BB and stuff was playing. WOOT. Then boom... it crashed my BB. I reformatted it on my PC and same thing... 15.6GB available. Dumped 8GB on it again and looked at the folder structure. First 2GB looked fine. After that, chinese garble. I couldn't even erase the files. I have to reformat.

    Complaint to PayPal. The guy left eBay. I got my money back and have a 2GB card that says it's 16GB.

    Lesson learned.

    If you received a card that looks exactly like the one pictured in the ad text and photo, I believe it is legit. The markings are correct and the price is reasonable for a class 2 16G card.

    Remember people, the manufacturers of memory (disks, cards, etc.) are ripping you off by using M and G designations. In the computer world everything is a power of 2, so megabytes and gigabytes mean 1024x1024 byte and 1024x1024*1024 bytes respectively, while what they sell you is 1,000,000 per what they are calling a Megabyte and 1,000,000,000 for what they are calling a gigabyte.

    Therefore your formatted space is going to always be less than the rating.

    16,000,000,000 (what they call 16G) is really 14.90G. 14.8 is the correct formatted size for a normal 16G card.

    I ordered 2 from this link and got them shipped in a few days, so far they're great working!

    Lots of space (tho its 14.8GB) and yes, they seem a little slower than usual but only at writting not at reading, still perfect for what I need. Also I haven't had any problem while playing music or videos on my 8530.

    I'm amazed that I paid less for 2 cards than I would've paid for just one at the store!
