Unhappy USER GUIDE vs SD Rep Statements

I can understand Ralphf being miffed. He says that SD reps said there was no size limit on an external drive. Maybe the reps were thinking of WINDOWS O/S and guessed the 830 O/S was the same?

What is the speed of your external drive 5400 RPM or 7200 RPM?

Maybe a 5400 RPM HD is not fast enough? Maybe USB 2 is a bottle neck?
Re-Install 830 firmware???

Just guessing.
