    Hi there!

    Anyone know of a good reliable place to get a well priced Sandisk 2gb SD card?

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    this may have been answered but anywho. The treo supports a 2gb card?

    It is unknown, there hasn't been a definate answer, even the palmone rep in the chatroom said he wasn't sure. But I would be inclined to say that the 650 will support 2GB SDcards.

    Is it usually better to have one large card or a couple of smaller ones? My first instinct would be to have one large one and never have to take it out. I've never used a treo or a palm so just wondering?

    It works both ways. Lets say you have one 1 GB as opposed to 2 512mb. With the 1GB, you may never have to take it out, but if you lose it, you lose everything, including your back-ups. With the 2 512mb, you may have to do a lot of card swapping, but you always have a spare if one gets lost.

    Now assuming that its always in the phone, how will it get lost. Unless you lost the entire phone.

    Now there's someone whose SD card never accidentally popped out of the slot.

    you can find 1G cards for $59 looking at the right place and time. I would go with the 1G until prices come down with the 2G, but to each his own.

    Thanks for the answers! I have another question though The 1G cards for $59 are not the Ultra II or whatever right? The palm rep said the 650 would take advantage of the Ultra II but not III I think?

    You can also get a USB card reader and back up your card to the PC, that way you'll always have your info safe. Perhaps many people are not at their PCs that much but it at least provides an extra comfort level.

    Just my tuppence worth.

    For those who remember 720 floppies or dreaming of that 20MB hard drive, isn't it incredible how far things have come! We're getting pretty close to being able to wear that **** Tracy watch. Now if my eyes will just hold up.

    If you don't mind a slightly longer sync time you can configure BackupBuddy to automatically backup your installed SD card when you hotsync, automating the backup of your card backup. Came in useful when I had some flaky Sandisk cards a couple of years back.

    Ah, the 1kb RAM in the ZX81, or 16kb if you stuck a carbuncle RAM pack on the back; the vast tracts of space in the Amiga 20Mb sidecar hard disk. Now you can carry around more on your keyring. <sniff>

    Is there a big difference in performance from the Ultra 1GB and the non Ultra 1GB SD card? Is it worth the extra money?

    Thanks again for all the great repsonses, BTW, who ever said get two cards makes a lot of sense, thanks for the advice!

    There is a significant difference between the SanDisk Ultra II SD cards and the non-Ultra cards. The Ultra II cards can read at 10 MB/s and write at 9 MB/s, whereas the non-Ultra cards can read at ~2.5 MB/s and write at 1 MB/s. To summarize, the Ultra II cards will operate closer to the speed of the onboard memory, enabling faster access to application/etc.

    Oh man, I thought I was the only "Geritol generation" spy on this forum. I remember paying $450 for a 40mb hard drive upgrade for my state of the art ALR 386SX desktop (or was that the 256kb sidecar for my PCjr - can't remember anymore).
    Remember, the "P" in PDA stands for personal.
    If it works for you, it is "P"erfect.

    Any good links for good prices from a place that people have actually bought a 1GB Ultra card from? Also, would a SD card with a CF adapter work just as fast as a CF card? (Canon S500 Question). Thanks!

    I must be beyond Geritol, as I remember purchasing four quad density 5 1/4" floppy drives (the latest and greatest) for $1200 (needed to run some business software on a 8080 machine) in the pre-IBM PC days! Now 1GB SD cards for less than $90, where is my walking cane!!!!
