X-Fi 2 (Creative); the pros and cons of a micro SD card?

Half a year ago I bought the 8 gb version of Creative's X-fi 2.
I bought it because I needed more space for my music (before that I had a 4 gb mp3-player. But after a half year I my mp3-player is again nearly full. So I'm now thinking about buying a micro-sd card. But before I buy it, I want to now if it works well in the x-fi 2.
I've googled up some reviews, but nowhere I could find a more detailed description of how good micro sd card work in the x-fi 2.
So I was wondering, how are your experiences with micro-sd cards in the x-fi 2?

Thanks in advance, Loth91

I am not too sure about your question.

It seems that you might be a bit worry. But as for any storage devices, it could go bad at any time. So be sure you have backup elsewhere.

You have something more specific in mind?

Yes and no

It adds capacity, so in that regard it works.

Unless Creative has released an update to the X-Fi2's firmware sometime this year that addresses this, the one big complaint about the microSD card that I remember coming across a while back is that every time you access content on that card, the player rebuilds your onboard library database which can make for a very slow PMP user experience. Since I don't own the X-Fi2 I can't say just how bad or irritating this issue really is; I'm only the messenger for others who have posted previously around the web about this.
