    Things are getting smaller and smaller and smaller...if you were to choose a format for storage for today and into the future, what would it be? Take into consideration for a moment the expandability on the PCMCIA format and the CF format. Which would you choose? Which option gives you the most memory expandability? Which one is storage only? Which one can you run programs from? So many companies (on the Win CE side) have multiple devices that do the same thing...one with CF only...another with MMC or SD.

    You decide!

    This thread is intended to be both Palm OS and Win CE friendly.

    Thanks for all your imput!

    SD sucks.

    How was that?

    That's what I've been waiting for!...any particular reasoning though? Or just because?

    I was just trying to help you out. I hate starting a thread and having no one respone to it. I voted PCMCIA just because I like the size of a "standard" springboard module, and in the case of a larger modules I know there is a portion of the bulk being held internally. It also lends itself to expansion other than memory a shade easier.

    hey thanks...I hate starting a thread and having no one respond too...so much in fact, that the other day when it got to the bottom of the screen, I replied so that it would go back to the top!

    The reason behind my thread is to find out what people like really...I know that all these formats are readily supported, or will be. Nothing like getting people all excited over nothing! ...that and...shoot, if Palm is going to SD, what does that mean for all of us?

    I am not too familiar with any of these formats. I don't have any devices that use them. My vote was for CF since I'm thinking of getting one of those CF adapter SB's.

    Anyone want to waste some time explaining to me the various differences between MMC and CF (I know the form factor, but what about transfer rates/ ability to run programs etc.)?

    Smart Media is dead.
    Compact Flash will live for a long time, because it is a standred that's been widely accepted.
    SD is the secure form of MMC, and is backwards compatible. IE MMC cards can be read in SD drives. (At lesat from the Panasonic advertisement.. oh well)
    MMS is the best SMALL format, because SD has crappy copyright stuff.

    MY CAPITOLS ARE FOR EMPHASIS! bold just doesnt' do it..

    Here is a link for you to stare at...it has most of the important stuff...also includes some things many of us just don't give a rip about...or really don't care.

    Good luck!

    I wouldn't go that far... Smart Media is technically more popular (by the number of devices that use it) than compact flash..

    I agree with you on the bold vs. CAPS! LONG LIVE CAPS!

    Thanks for the link. After reading the post about the MemPlug SB I've decided to go the SmartMedia route. The ability to read text directly off of the card is a godsend (won't be available for a little while though).

    CAPS LOCK MUST LIVE! Thats why there is a CAPS LOCK button and not a BOLD LOCK button

    That's a good idea! They should change the CAPS LOCK BUTTON TO A bold lock button. Bold is much easier to read and still gets the point of emphasis across.

    That's why I voted for PCMCIA. And I hope there will be PC to CF adapter release and Visor will support storage.

    not anytime soon
    << yes, indeed >>
