Obviously, your device must be SDHC-compatible to work with this new card.

According to SanDisk's official press release:

The SDHC format is designed to allow for capacities greater than 2 GB, but devices must be SDHC-compatible in order to work with SDHC memory cards. For video applications, SanDisk Extreme III SDHC cards have a speed rating of Class 6, the highest available SDA speed class, meaning that they have a minimum continuous data transfer rate of 6 MB/second.

A SanDisk MicroMate USB 2.0 Reader will be bundled with the 8 GB SDHC card.

The card is expected to retail at $179.99 and will be shipped to U.S. retailers within the coming month.
