    Media Card

    Advertisement



    Hi

    I was wondering if 1GB is enough for the media card (Scan Disk, right?)? Is it easy to fill it up, or do you need A LOT to fill it up? Just wondering if I should get 1gb or 2gb, maybe i need even more?
    thanks

    Really depends what you are planning to put on there. I have a 4gb card and have around 20 cds on it, two movies, several tv shows, and 60pics. Have about a gig left to fill still

    I have to agree, since it won't be used as system memory it is up to how much media you want to store on it. I have a 512 mb card and I really have to watch how much I store on it. Music is ok but videos are what really take up the most space.

    Re: Media Card

    How big a house do you need? Some people are fine with a 2 bed 1 bath, others need a seven bedroom mansion. All depends on what you need.

    BTW, scandisk is a DOS command, Sandisk makes memory/media products.

    I have a 1G card and it's more than enough. But I use it as a communications tool, not a audio/video entertainment device. Your needs may be different.

    Since 1G cards are so cheap, why not pick one up and see if it does what you need.

    I agree, I'd pick up an inexpensive 1 gb and see if it fits your needs. Personally, I have a 4 gb card and it's about 3/4ths full, I would have no problem filling it up...

    Re: Media Card

    got a deal on a 1 GB for $20 a few months back.

    looks like you can get a
    4 GB for $80
    2 GB for $40
    and 1 GB for about $30
    at Office Max not bad at all price wise i think

    Not until OS4.3 comes out (assuming it does...)

    Re: Media Card

    My suggestion, whatever size card you THINK you will need, just purchase the next size larger. I have a drawer full of media cards of various GBs from my Treo days of adding aps, media, etc. Too bad I can't use any of them in my pearl!

    And for the media card situation. I would get a 2gig. Just to be safe. I have a 4 and I'm almost 3/4 full

    Order from Amazon and you can cut each of those prices in half!

    I would go as big as you can because once you start figurin out all the stuff you can do and put on here....you just wont wanna stop! I just got my 4gb and cant wait to double it...and then triple it...etc etc!
