    What is the most reliable brand of SD card and what capacities do you have experience with? I'm considering the 256MB Sandisk but I've heard that they aren't all that! What about Viking, Lexar or Toshiba?

    Panasonic is the best. Some Lexar's are Panasonic re-branded, however, some are Sandisk. Simpletech is a Panasonic re-brand, as well.

    I know that SanDisk cards have intermittent problems with certain PPC models (like my e310). Occasionally the unit won't recognize that I have a SD card and the only way to get it to recognize it is to reformat.

    Those problems have been reported with other brands besides SanDisk. This site might be helpful, it lists user experiences with different brands of cards:

    I have used Sandisk cards (sizes ranging from 128 to 1 GB) of various formats in various devices. I have never had a problem with a card. I will probably buy a Sandisk card due to availability and price. However, you may consider one of the faster Lexar cards, which supposedly make reading/writing to/from the card a lot faster. That would be a plus for things like loading mp3 playlists.
