Largest Media Card Capacity for BB Curve 8330

I have read the largest supported capacity for the BB curve 8330 is 8 GB but I was wondering if anyone had tried any larger capacities memory cards with any success or failure. I would love to put all my music on my phone, but 8 GB is not going to hold it all. I have A LOT of music. I would need at least 16 GB to get by with to be able to have room for all my music, pictures and videos. But before I run out and spend a bunch of money on a larger card I wanted to know if anyone else had tried it.

Yeah just a bit lol I get in a hurry and can't read right half the time, thanks for pointing that out because I was about to order the 16 GB card off of newegg.com in just a few minutes actually. I'm glad that I checked my email first.

The media cards normally come preformatted so that shouldn't be an issue.  I have an 8 gb Kingston card and it just slid right in and have not had any issues.  No formatting required.
