I don’t know if micro sd cards have surpassed 1gb yet but I am using a 1gb
in my rockboxed Fiio M3K with no issues. Note however that I never use the
database function, I only browse by folder.

Also the M3K seems to have gone away now. I managed to get a spare one from
Ali Baba when they started getting scarce last year. A shame.
