    Contact the seller to see if the device is compatible with SDHC cards
    I use these to record videos, but my computer is not compatible to read them so have to use my laptop to transfer them

    Agree with m8
    Some devices are not compatible with SDHC. Also find out if it uses standard SD or micro SD. Most are standard but some you can use a micro with an adaptor.

    My advice would be get a small SD card. 512Mb-1Gb. Remember the in car DVR can be used as evidence against you as well as in favour of you. You're only really interested in the last 5 minutes in the event of an incident so having less historical video on there would provide less ammunition.

    At those sizes you shouldn't have to worry about SDHC.

    iirc normal sd goes upto 2gb after that its sdhc which some devices dont like to read - as said stick to around 1gb and you should be fine - should pick one up for around a fiver

    the difference in classes is just basicaly the transfer speed from one device to another ...so the higher the class the faster the transfer speed.
    not all devices are compatible with the higher class of card though but im sure if you bought a class 4-6 you should be fine

    I also carry a spare in my car for my road hawk so that if anything happens I can keep the sd card safe and put the second one in till it's all backed up on my computer...
