Does the Touch support the use of SDXC SD Cards (SD Cards from 32 GB up to 2 TB)?

Would be helpful for bigger music collections and users, who would like to avoid a seperate USB Device.

Infos on SDXC here http://www.sdcard.org/developers/tech/sdxc

Thx.

Cool but this is only a spec meant for developers what is the biggest SD card that actually can buy now 32GB ? 2TB card would be way cool :)

Yes, SDXC is just a the beginning and no, you could buy 64 GB since April this year (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SDXC#SDXC). IMHO the availability of these SD Cards will increase rapidly.

Toshiba released 64GB some weeks ago...

Not sure if I can revive an old thread (does this make me a troublemaker) - but I am interested in the answer to whether Touch will be able to support these SDXC cards in the future (i.e. out of the box, with a firmware update, or can't happen) and looks like we never got a real answer...

I strongly doubt it will. I'm not aware of any SD readers that can now handle SDHC due to a software upgrade. Hardware matters. What you're asking for is the equivalent of an old DVD player now being able to play Blu-Ray just because of a software upgrade. Dream on!

I'm willing to bet the Squeezebox Touch 2 will have a much larger screen and SDXC capability, but that will be several years away.
