    Transcend SDHC 4GB Class 6 SLC card also works fine. It’s the one recommended by RS, but I bought mine from Amazon.

      Hi Colin, Thanks for the post! Very kind of you to share that info, we shall add it to the list!

    Transcend 8GB class 10 works fine for me using the recommended Debian image.

    16GB Sandisk Extreme 45MB/s SDCard works with Pi but only after applying the Debian update of kernel.img and start.elf to the current April 2012 Debian release. And it flies. Boot time from cold to login is 17 seconds.

    The list would be more useful if it contained information on those cards known not to work, and cards which work with patches or have other issues. It would be helpful to allow users to enter a candidate card on this page using a simple submission form, possibly indicating the number of users who used a card next to the card number, a sort of card score. Cards tested and approved by the foundation could be indicated as such.

    I’ve a question. Can I use a microsd with adapter? Do you think it works fine? I’m referring to this model: http://www.unieuro.it/telefonia-navigatori/accessori/schede-di-memoria/lexar-microsdhc-8-gb-mw8KCggG1AIAAAEqB78I7m5.-6ZIKCggFld8AAAEqbCJLUsco.html?JumpTo=OfferList&omnitureEvar3=browse

      Hi Giuseppe!

      I am told that Lexar 8GB Class 4 MicroSD cards work without any issues but I don’t have a product number to give you a certain answer.
      You should have no issues using an SD card adapter either, I have recently used one with my Raspberry Pi :)

    Does Kingston 16GB SDHC Class 10 (SD10V/16G) works with it?
    Does it meanes that if the SDCard was not in the list,it will never work?

    • Jim

      The list is just those cards that we know 100% work with the pi. If you don;t see a card on there, it may well work and if you try it and it does, please post back so we can update the list.

        I’ve bought an SD card that appears at that list (Kingston SD10G2/16GB) but doesn’t work (at least) with raspbian.
