    Hello...

    Afraid I'm looking for more newbie advice...

    Would like to order some memory for my soon to arrive IPAQ 2210, and I'm wondering which is better - compact flash or secure digital?

    I plan to get a CF wifi card at some point so I'm thinkign SD will be a better option but are there any reasons, other than having a free SD slot, to choose one type over the other?

    Cheers

    Dave

    Standard Compact Flash is slightly faster and cheaper than standard SD. Though there are newer faster versions of both.

    Careful with which SD brand as Sandisk did have some problems, had to send my 256mb back for replacement.

    Oh dear I have just ordered a Sandisk 256 on ebay for £40 delivered.

    Fingers crossed... (1) on it working AND (2) not getting stung by customs!

    Cheers

    Don't worry too much, my replacements been working for months now and Sandisk are a big reputable company.
