Hi everybody, I'm buying a Sansa Clip Zip. According to the official sandisk website the maximum storage you can get is 8 GB of internal memory + 32 GB by expanding it using a micro sd card. Anyway I've read Rockbox can handle up to 64 GB micro sd cards. Will I be able to use a 64 GB micro sdxc card class 10 as long as I format it in FAT32? How long will it take to load everything at boot up?
Sansa Clip Zip + Rockbox + 64 gb?
Here: http://www.trigames.net/the-sandisk-clip-zip-and-rock-box-firmware/ it says it's possible but the only way to make it work is to format it in FAT32. Can someone confirm this is working?

I use a 4gb Rockboxed ZIP with a 64gb msdxc formated to fat32 with no problem.
There is 2 way to navigate your files in Rockbox one is foldered based and the other is database based on IDtags.
Regardless of the way you use the boot up is immediate, no need waiting for updating file.
If you use the folder base you dont have to load anything it works instantly at boot up.
If you use the database you need to update it the first time you use it (it can take a few minutes ) it will also update in the background so you can use the player while its doing this.
After that you can use it without needing to re-update it unless you have new files if so you can have it update only the new files...anyway there'g in depth explanation about it in the manual http://download.rockbox.org/daily/manual/rockbox-sansaclipzip.pdf
