    What is the largest size memory can I upgrade to on Treo 650 and where can I purchase it?

    Can you fit a movie into a memory card?

    Thank you

    4GB
    Online, local department store, there's a great tool called Google.
    Yes.

    How many movies on a 4GB? What format do I need to use? IS ther a software that converts DVD to whatever format I need to watch a movie on Treo? Last, can treo be hooked up to TV?

    Depends on the length, audio codec, audio bitrate, video codec, and video bitrate

    Yes. Again, use Google. You might also have to override the CSS encryption on certain DVDs

    No. But why would you want to play a DVD from your Treo on a TV anyways...

    Keep in mind you'll need to do a custom ROM on your 650 to access all 4GB. The Treo 650 doesn't support 4GB SD cards out of the box.

    Was wondering the same thing. I have a 4gb card, but Palm says they only support 2gb. Anyone have a patch? Given the info below, 4GB would sure come in handy!

    As for ripping a DVD to an SD Card, check out this info from a friend:

    I was able to transfer & watch Batman Begins on my Treo 650 this weekend. I watched it from an AVI file, 320x148 size (full width on a Treo 650) with stereo sound, from my SD card this weekend. It played very high quaility, full motion, no artifact video with no stops or jitters and full audio sync.



    I used this page for instructions –

    Player for the Treo –

    Converter for the PC –

    and a comment about battery life -

    “…movie from SD card for 4 hours (looped) on my fully charged Treo 650, and I'm only down to 50% power.”



    I’m sure there are other converters, but this one was interesting because I could just decrease the file size until the dialog box showed the video size at maximum width (the Treo is 320x320). The net was a file of 368MB which means two movies plus an hour of other video on a single 1GB SD card. Just used an SD card reader to transfer the file to the card, popped it in, and ran TCMP to navigate to the file and then hit play.

    should give you some idea about what's involved.

    You can fit a lot on 2 GB cards, which are supported out of the box by Treo 650.

    Keep seeking and ye' shall find:

    I use the following software (all free) to rip my favorite DVDs for use on my Tungsten T3 (480x320) and Treo 650 (320x240). Use Google to track down where to get em'. A little learning curve and you'll be taking your DVDs on the road. As far as playback on a TV sized display from a Treo tho ... don't ask me.

    #1 DVDdecrypter for PC: Strips DVD encryption out so that movies can be ripped down for viewing on the Treo.

    #2 Pocket DivX Encoder for PC: Rips movie from original size down to a smaller size and format to play on the Treo. For the 700 and 650, I recommend 320x240 size for a balance between viewable content and viewing size. This trims a litte off the ends, but keep image large enough vertically for worthwhile viewing.

    #3 TCPMP for Palm OS: Superior video player for Palm OS

    ** Make sure and have an SD card reader on USB etc for transferring the movie to your card. Don't even think about hotsyncing.

    I posted a little deeper How To guide with over at PIC ...
