Dear all,

I want to buy some additional SD cards for my UM2, but I'm not quite sure which one I should take.

The original one is a Sandisk, 4GB, SDHC, Class 4, UHS I.

But if I google for such specs I cannot find any, seems 4GB cards are no popular anymore. I only find some with higher class (typically class 10) or without UHS I.

So what is important?

- UHS I?

- Class 4?

Can I also take 8 GB or 16 GB cards since they are more popular?

Thanks for any help!

    Hi TinkerGnome,

    this one I also considered. But on the one which came with my UM2 I can see the 'I' (capital letter i) on the right side of the SDHC symbol. This 'I' is the symbol for UHS-I Bus Interface.

    And I don't know if UHS-I is necessary or not. Or if Class 4 is more important.

    I am just not sure what to take since the same as mine I cannot find on the net.

    Don't worry. I've double checked it. The sdcard that came with my printer (11/2014) does not show the "I". It's exactly the same model (from the link). So i'm pretty sure that UHS-I is not necessary.

    Yeah I have a Toshiba Flash Air with integrated wifi and it doesn't work... It does in my camera even if it as no support for wifi in the first place.

    I guess its because of the way the card is accessed by the firmware.

    EDIT: but the card works. Not the wifi
