compact flash size limit

Is there really a 2 GB size limit on the Compact Flash card for music?

I want more music!

And not ripped at 132 kbs

No capacity limit, but there is a 512 song limit. Meaning you can put more than 512 songs on there, but it will only display 512 of them.

^yup what fill said. no real size limit but a song # limit. most people just stick with 2gb because its about how much space all those songs take up.

2gb is a bit small but 4gb is too big. Since they are cheap I buy the 4gb kingston cards on newegg or amazon. Fill is right about the song limit number.

According to the Nissan Pathfinder Brochure--the only place I could find any information--the size limit is 8GB for the flash cards. Interesting that this is brought up. According to my dealer, Infiniti is dropping the Flash Cards for 2010 except for the QX56 and the M. I don't know if this is true or not, but this is what he had heard.

I would just get the cheapest card (check newegg) with about 4GB. I wouldn't worry so much about the transfer speed since it wouldn't really matter if you're just playing it inside your car. Yeah, you might have to wait a LITTLE longer when you transfer songs at home, but it's not going to kill you.

I've been trying for the past few days to update and reconfigure the songs into different folders, re-adding and deleting songs etc.... 512 song limit is just nuts.. guess the wifey's gonna have to do without miley cyrus and taylor swift. Is there really no way to adjust this song limit? I dont wanna have to carry 4 extra 2GB compact flash cards.. this is just stupid.. might as well install a cassette tape player and fill my glove compartment up with 8 extra cassettes for 100 songs.
