Hi all

Having looked around at different forums, I'm undecided what storage card to
purchase for my Ipaq 2210, I'm tending to lean towards compact flash, as I
haven't read as many bad reports on this type of media compared to SD cards,
main purpose of the card will be to store a movie (256mb card), also any
recommendations on brand, sandisk seems a popular brand, any info would be
appreciated

Thanks

Terry

Most of the movies I have are 700MB ish (DVD rips in XVID AVI format). You
may need a bigger one unless your movies are shorter.

Why would you want to watch movies in your PDA ?
Anyway .. 1 DVD can be compressed down to 128mb using a DVD2PDA s/ware [have
a look at handango .. can't rem the exact title]

Will 2 movies be enough ?
I used Sandisk Ultra II SD [10mbps ] and very happy with the speed.
[256 mb AUD 140ish from eBAY]

IMO .. for your ipaq 2210 better use an SD storage and CF I/O devices ...
CF devices are much cheaper than the SD ones, while CF storage .. nearly the
same price as the SD
[upto 256mb that is]

For brand, I'd recommend any of the industry members listed as
supporting the CF group - have a peek at www.compactflash.org.

I went Sandisk 128 for my digital camera and would do so again.

and as a post-script, make sure you know the difference between Type 1
and Type 2, and the interchangeability. Most of the 512 and smaller
on eBay seem to be Type 1 when you ask them.
