I don't know what makes the difference between the first models and the 
latest ones, it might be just a firmware update, but the new models will 
take up to a 32GB SDHC card. I haven't even seen a 32GB card for sale 
yet, the biggest I've seen personally is 8GB but who knows waht will be 
just around the corner ... or just around Xmas season. If I remember 
correctly, the firsts R-09's were advertised to top out at 4GB. A 4GB 
card will give about 6 hours of recording time in CD quality (or a 
smidge better) wav format so a 32GB might hold as much as 48 hours worth 
of recordings. That's more than your average festival, if they'll let 
you record. Amazing devices!

Keep on keepin' on ...
