I don't think there is a size limitation as I remember someone saying a click drive worked, but the larger the size the slower it gets (and it is slower than liner flash already).  As the Newt has to keep track of all the space it might need you to freeze some packages to have enough heap and not throw errors with really large cards.

Here’s a thread from 2008 regarding the ATA driver and various cards.

You might be able to glean some additional details from the discussion.
