Card reader on a laptop

I scored a Asus Eee 1005HAB Netbook at a price I couldn't pass up for an upcomming trip. I realize this has no optical drive (cd/dvd) but it does have a card reader. Is there typically a max GB a card reader can read? I know that some car stereos have a USB input have a max that the USB can read, didn't know if this held true with computers.

your more limited by the capacity available for a specific format. you can get sdhc cards up to 32gb but they can be spendy, 16gb is pretty cheap though.

My sd reader on the macbook pro reads my 32gb card just fine.

They even have 64GB cards...

Everyone Exaggerates

Some older and cheaper card readers have limits. But being a modern laptop, it's probably good to go.

Just get yourself a 32GB flash drive (Assuming you have free USB port). Probably $75 to $85

You're just storing data, and not trying to boot off the card, right?

Or are you trying to keep everything internal? (why not a bigger hard drive?)

sdhc card is a better choice than a flash drive since you can insert it and not have anything sticking out. sounds like he wants permanent storage.

Internal Memory only, would be 64GB Compact Flash (if the drive supports CF), or 32GB SDHC

Card Reader slots - Memory capacity is based on the standard they were built to, which is usually linked to the age of the system they are in.

SD - 4GB Most hard to find any SD cards over 2GB Only a few 4GB were made before SDHC came out.
SDHC - currently at 64GB, can go to 128GB
CF - currently at 64 or 128GB
Memory Stick - I think its 1GB
Memory Stick Pro - currently at 32 or 64 GB
MMC card - 128MB
