  • It is recommended that you test all cards with the latest iLiad Firmware, which is 2.12 as of 6th February 2008
  • All memory devices must be formatted as superdisk to work with the iLiad. Partitioned media are not supported.
  • All storage devices should be formatted fat32

[edit] CF

The Iliad should recognise all CF cards up to 4 Gb. Some 8 Gb and 16 Gb cards are reported to work, and the whole storage capacity can be used. Note that Iliad's content lister will show an available capacity of only 4GB even if a >4GB card has more than 4 GB available memory space.

A separate page exists: Iliad SD Memorycards list to make printing a hard copy easy so that you can take it to the store. It is included here so that only one copy exists. According to this thread in the Irex Forum, SD cards are not 100% supported. Additionally, SD cards over 1 GB will not work at all.
