How large a SD or SDHC card for Kindle can I use?

From the forums -

  1. Update courtesy Richard (comment below): I just bought a PQI 8 GB SDHC card and the Kindle recognized it without a problem. I’ve tranferred books to it and they work perfectly. 
  2. Customer Support – confirmed that 4GB SD cards have been tested. 
  3.  A user has been using a 8GB SD card without issues.
  4.  Another user has been using a 4GB SDHC card without problems

Where to buy – The Kindle Store – Accessories doesn’t list anything above 2GB, so I’d recommend www.newegg.com .

  2. thx Richard – appreciate it.

  3. [...] lets you carry around a ton of music and books and documents. You can use a SD or SDHC card and amazon support/forums say 4GB SD card is tested. Users on the amazon forum say they have successfully used PQI 8 GB SDHC [...]

  4. What do you do with all the books accumulated in your archive?

    • Ignore them. They don’t affect available memory as they’re on Amazon’s servers.

      If you want to delete books from Archive you can go to the ‘Manage My Kindle’ page on Amazon. Press the ‘+’ next to a book’s name and you get options including a Delete button.
      Note that books you delete are gone FORVER. You have to rebuy them if you want them again.
