SDHC stands for Secure Digital High-Capacity. Sixteen gigabytes is a great deal of storage for a micro SDHC card. It can easily hold multiple video files, as well as many music and document files. Some name brands of 16GB micro SDHC cards are SanDisk and Kingston. If you want to create a partition for your micro SDHC card, you can do so using your computer. Creating a partition makes a second drive within the SDHC card, which is useful for organising and protecting files.
