That's debatable :) ... I have tried various cards and have installed debian 
successfully and unsuccessfully based on the card I use.

I now only use 2GB cards and below as they don't seem to suffer from the 
issues > 4GB seems to present.

IMO try a smaller card before you consider alternative install methods, 
otherwise you might end up like me, with debian installed but randomness 
occurring. Also don't believe everything the FR reports, use a bit of trial 
and error, especially with uSD cards.
