FORMAT.  Like their standard sized SD and SDHC counterparts there are
micro-SD and  micro-SDHC cards. SD cards have up to 2 GB memory while
SDHC have capacities in the range of 4 - 32 GB.  Mechanical adapters
can enable micro cards to be plugged into SD readers, but the adapters
do not accommodate format changes. Contrary to what the SD Association
says about compatibility and interoperability older SD readers are not
able to interface with the higher capacity media. When you purchase a
reader or media you need to make sure that they are compatible.

Note: SDXC is coming out. I'm certain the majority of existing readers
will not be able to handle this new format.
