You need OS version 4.3 or higher for a Media Card larger than 4 Gb to be recognized as documented here.
A word of warning. Although these are ALL official RIM releases of the OS, your carrier may not yet support OS 4.5, so you may want to hold off on moving to it. You also need to know how to install an OS that's from a carrier other than yours. If you do not know how to do this, you may want to hold off. For info on how to upgrade your OS, check the FAQ's here.
THe highest pre 4.5 OS available for the 8310 is 4.2.2. Here is a list of all carriers that support the 8310 and their URL's:

Hi and welcome to the forums!
Hang on to the 8gb card and wait for your carrier to release their approved version of OS 4.5. You can get a clean and supported OS. The rumor is that it has been released to the carriers and should be available in September.
Jerry D, excellent post, I will book mark it!

so now that it is Dec '09, what is the largest size microSD an 8310 will recognize, and what version of OS would be needed?
There is no direct correlation between BB Model and SD card size support. Rather, the correlation is between the device OS level and the SD card size...see this KB:
Hope that helps!
