If you meant 32 gb you need 4 8 gb cards.  4*8 =32.

Well, my card was also a 32 gb Transcend. Despite a couple
formatting
sessions, it seemed to only want to hold about 8 gigs. Today at
work I was
talking to a guy who's kind of a computer geek, and telling him
about my
problem, and he said FAT 32 can only hold 8 gigs. That would
explain my
problem, but that doesn't seem to be totally true, since everyone
else seems
to be able to get 32-gig cards and pop them into their card
readers and have
them work. And we tried this card with two different card
readers, one of
which was purchased within the last year or so. I'm just about
ready to buy
three 8-gig cards and divide the maps up among them, but I'd
really rather
have everything on one card. I just don't want to order another
card and
not have it work, so I'm not quite sure what direction to go from
here.  If
I could find a 32-gig card locally and bring it home and try it
and they'd
take it back, I'd try again. Or perhaps there's a setting on my
computer
that makes it not recognize big cards? I just wish I knew how to
resolve
this.

Well then, I'd say Peggy's card is defective.

Hi,

I bought a 32 gig card a few months ago from New Egg. It is
made by
Transcend. It works fine in the Pk, the mPower, the Voice Sense
and the
Braille Sense Plus.

Peggy,

It's possible that you just got a defective card. It rarely
happens,
but
it's still a possibility. Would it be possible to fit all the
maps you
want
on a 16GB CARD? I don't know if there's a size limit on cards
the
M-Power
can handle. You might also consider keeping your maps on a
flash drive.

Hi, all. Well, I'm sending my card back to Newegg for a refund.
I've
had
good luck with them in the past, and I still don't know what was
wrong
this time. Someone suggested that perhaps my card reader can't
read
high
capacity cards, and that I should get a new card reader. But we
tried
it
on two separate readers, with the same results. If anyone
discovers a
specific card model that works with the BrailleNote for storing
GPS
MAPS,
I'd love it if you could either post the link to the card, or
e-mail
me
privately. I really want to get all the maps for this version
loaded.

Peggy <still wondering why this card wouldn't work, and whether
I
ordered
the wrong thing, and how I can get the right thing
