SD and CF...
by John.Wilkinson / January 15, 2006 11:39 AM PST

Well, I'm more than a little interested in the memory card reader, as 9-in-1 is the standard...I've never seen a 30-in-1 before. As to which type to use, you should choose either SecureDigital (SD) or CompactFlash (CF), as those are the two most commonly supported by handhelds. If your PDA handles both, either would be fine, but if it only accepts SD cards it wouldn't be wise to put your music files on a CF card. Of course, the high-speed cards offer better performance, but that shouldn't be necessary for playing music and may not be supported by older handhelds.

Hope this helps,

Are Palm Memory Expansion Cards the same as SD cards?

I have a Palm Zire 31 and I got the RealOne Player and a Memory Expansion Card but I have seen SD cards advertized for much less than I can get the Palm brand cards for. In fact, they are so cheap, I could get several and have a different playlist on each card. Will a generic work in my Zire? Is there anything I need to look out for?
Thanks, Brian

How do you transfer tunes downloaded of wma files from Media Player to Real One Player on any PDA? I have the old Tungsten E.

The roundabout method.

Make an AudioCD from the wma files. I have no idea if you use Windows Media Player but it could do this. Now you have your AudioCD and just like any other CD use the methods you use from AudioCD to your PDA.

Sorry, no hand holding on this.
