It's a Kingston card.
Awesome. Can you please provide a link to the exact card you have?

Actually, now I've filled the card up, the menu initial progress bar almost loads then hangs for a bit, then reports there are no folders on the SD card with error code 80000005! They are all there, all 300+ of them.

Is there a limit to the number of folders? The same card worked fine earlier.

i think something should mentioned in the manual. limitation was about 64 or 256 folders/files in the root (limited by Menu software, nit by device)

It's been a while, but I believe the Systems Manual already has that information. I'll have to check however.

Is that something that can be addressed in a future update then? With the price coming down on 256gb+ cards now I can't imagine it's going to be an uncommon issue.

Yes, I should be able to lift that and release a new version. I'll look into it when I've got time.
It will probably be in a major revision (which is coming up soon) because of Multi-Disc support.

Sounds good! I'll remove the extra games for the moment then and get testing.

I understand that 32GB is the largest card officially supported by the PSIO, but can using a larger card potentially cause damage to the PSIO and/or Playstation? Or is it more a case of things just might not work correctly when using a larger card?

No, it wont cause damage whatsoever.

Great, thanks. When the "32GB-maximum" changes in a firmware update, do you anticipate it going to 64GB, or jumping higher than that?

It should be possible, but the Menu System will run very slow. I'll have to test that theory.
I may have to re-program the whole thing and break it up into memory better to it renders in chunks.
Honestly however, I can't say. I reckon I need to get myself a 128GB card and start testing :P

I used this Sandisk 64GB MicroSD card and it seems to work fine from the brief spot checking I did last night (after a FAT32 format of course).

The card I posted above still works. I suspect since you said "good seller" that may not be from Amazon directly, you may have received a bootleg which happens a lot.

SDXC cards will not work, you need SDHC cards.

These cards should work

The card works fine after formatting it to FAT32 like it says in my post duder.

YMMV of course, but for me it's fine.
